Meditation and Stuff

Today I intended to fast. I thought about meditating and letting my body, mind, and soul relax and be at ease. What a wonderful and enlightening feeling that would have been

Me: I'm hungry.
Susie: Me too. Wanna go get something to eat?
Me: Yeah!
Susie: I'll be there in ten minutes to pick you up.
Me: Yay!

So much for fasting...lol Maybe I'll do it on a day when I'm not IM-ing a friend under the influence of hunger. :-S I want to fast and meditate for a whole day at least once. Usually, I only meditate for about an hour or so, but I find it easier to do it for longer periods of time when I don't eat (and when I don't feel hungry, lol). It's really calming, and it's a time for me to clear my mind and think things through without any judgments and negative thoughts.

In other news, my dad and my step-mother plan to buy a house together soon, which is really nice, but they're talkin' about moving to the same town we (my mom, sisters, and I) live in... *cricket sounds* WTF? I don't really know how I feel about that right now. I just like knowing that my dad lives at least an hour away from me. Damn. :-S

I've had the same experience! Well, I usually just aim for fasting between breakfast and sunset, but even that's hard... :P .

I figure, if it's meant to be, it will happen!

I hope we both get to that state of happy awareness more :) .

And hope the developments with your family will become...less anxiety-inducing... :] .

Thank you, thank you!
Yeah, I'm sure we'll get to that state of happy awareness someday. lol :-)

Hey. I fasted for 3 days. I don't remember why I did it but I do remeber getting sick after the third day. I think I was going to try and make it longer but got sick. At first it was hard. Then it wasn't so bad until I got sick. I haven't done it since. I can't even go 3 hours without wanting to eat. That is why I am probably big as a horse. My mind wanders too much to meditate. I am a person who can't relax. I am always thinking about something that has to be done.
Maybe your dad won't find a house in your area. Here's hoping. Take care.

you know, if you think about food then someone else speaks about it, that's enough to mess ya up. that's why i gained weight [not in the bad way, cuz i made it physically work for me :D]. But still. I was stuck around 90. Then 120. Ever since the Army, I've been slowly coming down from 180.

Yo, that would give me a lil scare as to what might happen [dad/stepmom]. Like...really. I would not wanna be ur mom running into them alone. But then again I highly doubt I'm as strong as her, so...

banana chips. are tasty.
