J. Wading Through the Stream – Ep. 02

I hear a cough in the distance and I’m reminded of my own health…

Though I’m in relative good health for my age, there are “potential” warning signs that “could” lead to a condition later.

I’ve had borderline high blood pressure for years.  For a time, my primary cary physician was very worried and said I needed to cut my cholesterol level.  I did that, by over 40 points, might I add.

But my blood pressure, still borderline.  Perplexed.  I exercise between 3-5 times a week and walk an average of over 7k steps per day and strive to be mindful as much as possible in eating.  I’d also like to point out that I feel better today than I have in years, yet I’m still walking along the borderline.

Short of eating like a rabbit, what should I do?

I create:

Words.

Pictures.

Paintings.

Recently Spoken Words.

That’s not helping.  Addressed exercise above.  I guess the only real logical next step is to keep doing all that I’m doing and get back into meditation.

Ah meditation, the silent nemesis of my ego.  The practice that is rewarding yet difficult because of how much is being asked of doing, saying, & thinking so very little….

PAUSE

As started to fall asleep with the keys drifting to a pause, I get a call from my Doctor.

“Keep up the great work.”  Despite the borderline highs my bloodwork is clean, all is well, and I guess oh well, no need to worry other than to focus on keeping on with what I’ve been doing.

Aloha, I say, Aloha, I say.
