OK, I've let my self go this past few weeks and now it is time to get back on track. I've rededicated myself to sitting in meditation and prayer, to physically exercising each and every day, to riding my bike to work Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and to a fresh fruit and vegetable juice fast for the next few weeks. I have also forsworn to steer clear of alcoholic beverages and pornography completely during the Lenten Season.
Having drank and eaten to my hearts delight this past week I have noticed that the things that used to give me pleasure do not so much do so lately. And yet, yesterday while simply walking down the hall at my job I was overcome with a sense of bliss that momentarily overwhelmed me. I did not seek this experience out nor did I try to hold onto it in anyway. It merely came and went within minutes.
