About the balance between physical and emotional bodies
On the left: Resting energy expenditure of organs and tissues (1). “Other” consisted of adipose tissue, bone, skin, intestine and glands.
On the right: Emotional needs to keep the bodytoned up.
Keeping physical and emotional bodies properly supplied with essential nutritious and “emotional”calories, contributes to a balance on physical and emotional levels.
As a result, it leads to self-satisfaction, better well-being and not overeating.
Well-feeling induces well-eating and one should work on it daily

“It is impossible” syndrome
“Well, the Sun is Sun, the Moon is Moon, what is interesting about it? I can always search, if needed, Moon phase on my phone app. Honestly, I do not need”.
That could be the standard answer. “I could search on my phone app”…
Well, how to feel the connection with the planet(s) if looking for them on an electronic device, not in reality? We definitely have the connection to electronic devices, but not to any planet, because we do not pay any attention to the great things around, only to small things which do not matter for living being.

Today, on July 30, 2020, till 8 pm it is Ekadashi time – the time for fasting and self-cleaning. Ekadashi is calculated according to the Moon phase. It is believed that on this day, approximately twice a month, the body does not need any food and could withstand without food easily, and clean itself from the inside.
While following Ekadashi fasting, one should keep in mind – the Moon is not on a phone app, the Moon is on the sky
P. S. Have not read about emo-C before? Here is the main info from my previous posts:
What is emo-C in a daily-life?
Emo-C is the “emotional calories” to feed emotional body
Why to apply emo-C in an every-day life?
Emo-C allows to reach inner stability and well-feeling. When we feel well, peaceful and stable, – there is no need to overeat or crave for food
Could be beneficial if overcoming difficult daily-life or challenging life situations
Helps to reduce stress, actually it reduces unproductive and destructive stress feeling and leads to the proper responses and actions when needed
What should be done to ensure emo-C consumption?
Emotional calories are achieved by conducting specific activities within a day. These activities contribute to inner stability, peacefulness and well-feeling
How much scores per day?
At least 100 scores are needed to ensure day’s intake of emotional calories
Activities to ensure “consumption” of emotional calories
These activities are graduated from very easy and taking just a few seconds to do, to some-how difficult, new, challenging, surprising and taking up to 0.5-1.0 hour
Should be conducted regularly within all the day
Start from one activity, maintain it within a week and later add one more, any of those which seems for you good enough to try

This recipe is endless, because from a pulp of squeezed fruits a tasty banana vegan, non-wheat-flour muffins could be made later!
for warm days to refresh the body
Before you start:
PASSIVE TIME is time before, during or after food preparation when nothing should be done, just waiting
soaking, sprouting, cooling down, freezing
ACTIVE TIME is factual time spent in a kitchen for preparation
cutting, washing, boiling, crashing, mixing
specifickitchen equipment, if not counting regular tools like pots, spoons or knifes
PASSIVE TIME for this recipe is time for fruits to sit on a counter overnight or at least 4 hours before juicing (if fruits were in a refrigerator before). While fruits are taken out from a refrigerator and put to a warmer place (on a counter), warm will produce more natural sugar in fruits, they will be much tastier and juicy.
List of ingredients for preparation of grapefruit juicy drink, available both in metric and imperial measurement systems
US measuring cup, equal to 240 ml of water
Abbreviations and their meaning
How to make it:
peel grapefruits and remove fiber partitions form a pulp
remove the seed section form apples and cut them into pieces
turn on a juicer and juice!
take a pulp of processed fruits and put it into a juicer once again
dilute the juice with water and it’s ready!
TIPS & WHY
fiber of grapefruit should be removed before juicing, because:
it has bitter taste
banana-vegan muffins will be cooked later, so, there is no need to chew non-tasty bitter fiber in muffins!
pulp of processed fruits should be squeezed twice, because:
it produces more juice
pulp for banana-vegan muffins should not be too moist, it should be squeezed well for not to over-moisten a dough
Recipe of vegan-banana muffins is coming in a next Wednesday’s post!
That is not the question. The question is “What is my answer to it? And what is yours?” …
We have it all, joy and happiness, available from outside and/or inside. But, while letting it go through a (head)grinder, we miss the whole words and sentences (of happiness), and only scattered letters left.
Kirk Mangus (1952-2013) was an internationally recognized ceramicist, and a dedicated teacher and mentor for almost 30 years at Kent State University. Mangus is known for his playful, gestural style, and experimental glazing. In his approach to craftsmanship, Mangus sought to re-negotiate concepts of beauty and mastery, proposing an unguarded, impassioned way of thinking, making, living, and loving (2).
