I just had an ionic foot detox last week. This process is supposed to release the toxins from the body and whether or not it was successful, I have to say that it was a nice treat to have my feet relax in warm water for 45 minutes. As I closed my eyes and enjoyed a moment of stillness, I could not help but wonder about the importance of not only detoxing my physical body but also detoxing my mind. Our world is so busy and filled with so much noise, surely a detox from it would be just as refreshing.
It feels like as an elder in this community, I am being called upon to hold on even more tightly to the inner unity I have already found, rather than convincing others that I am right politically and socially.
It is disturbing to me to experience the violence and meanness that is so prevalent in the political world. I don’t understand the divisiveness of racism, sexism, xenophobia etc.
