That was the phrase I said to Nathan this morning that made him double over in laughter asking me to write this post.
The reason I said it was because I checked my fasting sugar and it was again at 160. I commented it was probably the chocolates I ate last night because they were cheap ones. I said “I love chocolate, there I said it, I love chocolate, and aren’t we supposed to be loving things!”
Then immediately my brain replayed the last chakra section of the following clip from “The Last Airbender”.
I had played the clip for Ian last night to see if it would help him understand things. And I had followed the clip as a meditation in the process, so I knew exactly what was being conveyed.
It is good to love things, but not so intensely that we cannot let them go for fear of the loss.
And that is precisely what I’m doing with chocolate.
Chocolate is my last food pleasure. It is the only thing left in my ‘I really enjoy this food’ list. I am afraid to lose chocolate and never have any enjoyable food in my experience.
Knowing that, and accomplishing the letting go are two separate and distinct moments. Practice makes perfect, right?!
This one is going to be hard for me. Merh.
