Consistency is Over-Rated


That is my thought today as I reflect on how long it’s been since my last post. I have been imagining myself at confession, “Forgive me, it has been 16 days since my last post…”

Sometimes it seems all I can do is inhale. After 16 days of inhaling, you’d think it would be time to exhale a decent post onto my blog! Since crafting a grammatically correct post eludes me, I’ll offer a list of things I’ve been thinking about:

  • How can the sun shine so brightly and the day be so cold?
  • Why is it that big dramatic events, occurring just once or twice in a lifetime can inspire great personal growth, yet the daily nagging things rarely inspire change?
  • Really, how do seeds “know” when to sprout in the Spring and to go dormant in the Winter?
  • It is so obvious that something, or really someone is missing from a corpse, why is that “thing,” “personality,” or “soul, energy” completely left out of western medicine?
  • Do birds wish they could walk like humans?
  • On what basis do my cats decide to sleep in the closet, on the couch, in a cardboard box, a pillow or in the recycling bin?
  • When will I get my next blog post written?

    “Really, how do seeds “know” when to sprout in the Spring and to go dormant in the Winter?”

    Growth inhibitors are broken down from cold temperatures and/or soaked out when sufficient moisture is present. Seeds won’t grow until this substance is removed. It’s the same with nuts, and is why seeds and nuts are soaked before sprouting. For eating the healthiest nuts & seeds it’s best to first soak them to get rid of the growth inhibiting toxins.

    Hi Cindy,
    I just came across your site. It looks good!
    Best,
