"We are right now in the heart of the feminine cycle (of the Celtic calendar). We're talking about the void, womb
energy, the dream time, intuition, celebrating the inward, the inside, the feminine. At Christmas there's too much
emphasis on the external. People go out a lot when they actually need to spend time within. If they were to give
themselves 20 minutes a day where they honor the inner, that would help. Make a list of the things you're worried
about, like seeing your mother or getting the right present, then burn it. You're letting it go. Forgive yourself --
you're not perfect."—D ESI RÈ G AESHED A K H EAWOK , f o und er, W hisp ering So ng Te ac hing Lo dg e o f

"This is a time of year when one can truly reflect on the meaning of compassion. Because you care about someone
you worry about what gift to buy. You don't want to buy any old thing. But we have to be careful that our worries
don't become our downfall. If a person is on a tight budget but overspends in order to please, that doesn't do
anyone any good. Truly thinking about the individual means giving from the heart and understanding your own
limitations." —G RANT IKU TA, rev e re nd , T o ro nto B udd hist Churc h
A Few Other ideas for a Heal thy, Happy Holiday
From Dr. D harma ’s H ea ling M inute E-m ail, “ How N ot t o Blim p O ut ”:
Iin this Healing Minute I'm going to share with you some simple steps you can follow to keep from gaining too much
between now and Xmas.
1. Try not to let yourself go. How? Keep up with your exercise even if it's just walking for 15 minutes a day. One way
to get the most out of your exercise program is to walk on an incline. If you live near a hill and the weather's OK, go
outside and simply walk up and down that hill three times or so over a 20 minute period.
2. This is a million dollar idea that you've probably never heard before. Eat 3 apples a day. That's right! 3 apples will
keep your blood sugar stable and keep you from going nuts eating cake, candy, and all that other not-good-for-you-
stuff. Plus apples have fiber that will keep you regular as well as pectin for cholesterol control. If an apple a day
keeps the doctor away, imagine what 3 will do. [Com me nt f rom Sibylle : Substitute an ounce of Ningxia Red for
one of those apples, and you’ll not only get blood sugar control, but a heaping helping of vitamins and
antioxidants—far far more than one apple provides.]
3. Want to know exactly which food not to eat? Well here it is: Anything with high fructose corn syrup. High fructose
corn syrup is deadly. Read labels and try as hard as you can to avoid processed foods, which contain this poison.
There is nothing that's going to make you fatter faster than that. [Com me nt from Sib ylle: Avoiding processed
foods makes it a lot easier to avoid hydrogenated and trans fats too, the other category of “food” associated with all
sorts of bodily damage and disease.]
