There are times when we feel conflicted. Pressure coming from different angles can cause muddled thoughts


There are times when we feel conflicted. Pressure coming from different angles can cause muddled thoughts. These are the moments I choose to run. It’s therapeutic for me on many levels. Firstly, it’s important for me to have a clear head. Through the rhythmic motion I’m always able to remind myself that negativity is counterproductive. This is especially true when I try to control things beyond myself. When I focus on what I am able to do, everything else falls into place. Secondly, the endorphins my body release cause a feeling of euphoria. I guess it’s commonly known as runners high. I believe the sweating body rids itself of poisons and toxins. I usually feel a lightness in my being when I am finished. Finally, I am able to relax when I am finished. I am so relaxed I fall into a wonderful sleep while my body recovers.

This kind of therapy is my form of meditation. Each person has some activity that carries them to a higher plane. Not everyone discovers their activity immediately. But, when they do, they know it. There is a connection that happens. It is a familiar feeling yet filled with passion.

We must live with passion to truly be alive. We must do what we know to be right. The conflict within oneself arises when we feel that others methods are wrong. But, we must keep in mind, humans are creatures of habit. We each have our own way of doing things. So if anger arises from within because of others’ actions we will forever be angry. If I was forever angry, no amount of running would be able to rid my body of all the toxins. My only choice is to be happy and to do what I know how to do.

As for the book I will start tonight, it is 1491 New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann. I’ll give my impression this week.
