Labels, Interdependence, and Harry Potter

“And the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have powers the Dark Lord knows not…neither can live while the other survives…”
-Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“The table’s existence is possible due to the existence of things which we might call ‘the non-table world’: the forest where the wood grew and was cut, the carpenter, the iron ore which became the nails and screws, and countless other things which have relation to the table, the parents and ancestors of the carpenter, the sun and rain which made it possible for the trees to grow” – Thich Nhat Hahn

How do you define yoursellf?

Perhaps you define yourself by the roles you play – sister, brother, employee, partner, teacher, painter. Or perhaps you define yourself by your values – you’re dedicated to honesty, or play, or authenticity.

But then think of that label you’ve made for yourself. Ask yourself – is it true 100% of the time? Are you always 100% honest, or always playing the role of an employee?

Foods to increase Prana

In yesterday’s podcast, we talked about prana – the powerful energy and life force of the universe. Prana is a subtle energy that fills us, but it’s also the life energy that’s found in nature.

 

While breathwork and noticing our breathing is one of the best ways for us to tap into our internal prana and feel that energy moving through our bodies, we can also cultivate our prana through our interactions with the world around us.

 

When I first starting learning about Ayurveda, I learned to appreciate the power of food. What we eat literally becomes our skin and muscles and cells inside of us. What we eat is what we are.

 

And, what we eat can also nurture and increase or it can drain our prana. So how do we know which foods are high in prana and will nurture our spirit as well as our body?
