Ramadan

The fasting month is upon us and all I can think about at the moment is a nice cheeseburger with melted cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and a dollop of tomato sauce with a side of crunchy, hot french fries and a cold glass of thick strawberry milkshake. Ok, ok, so I'm losing the plot. It really is a time of reflection, gratitude and family (for me anyway).

So far I've had wonderful food and company, everyone's healthy and doing well, and for all that I am extremely grateful. Amidst all the doom and gloom of the economy, the H1N1 flu and the absurdities of Malaysian politics, I really can't complain about my lot in life. There are people better off, but there are more people worse off than me. So all I have to say for the moment is alhamdulillah and a blessed Ramadan everybody.

Healing Yourself

I hate reading the papers nowadays. It's depressing and not too good for my anxiety. So, I try not to read much news. I try to only read stuff that I'll enjoy. Currently I'm reading up on the Law of Attraction. It's definitely interesting and something I'd like to try out. Some people are definitely skeptical, but to me, well, it's not hurting anyone and it's quite harmless so why not?

People are always afraid of things they don't understand. I suppose it's human nature. Currently I am trying to learn more energy healing especially qi gong and Reiki. The amount of drugs people take nowadays is astonding. There are drugs to help you sleep, keep awake, basically just for you to function in your daily life. My family consume a lot of drugs for cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes etc. I personally would like to avoid that and I want my son to live a fairly drug free life.

I'm not putting down medications, but you have to agree that all it does is normalise the symptoms but it doesn't treat the underlying cause. So maybe, we should start looking for ways to treat it rather than just use drugs to keep it under control. If we don't, from what I've seen, we'll just have to keep increasing the dosage. Until what? There are no drugs strong enough? We also have to remember that most drugs come with it's own delightful side effects. In my opinion, it's just something we should think about
