Quote of the day

The task of healing is to respect oneself as a creature, no more and no less.

- Wendell Berry -

This reminds me of an old story, when someone asked Raphael, the archangel of health and healing, about the secrets of the eternal life. The angel said:
"When you need to sleep, sleep as much as is deemed necessary. When you need to eat, listen to your inner voice, and eat only as much as is needed. When you need to move or walk or work, do all this, but only for as much as you feel right about it. Do all these actions every day, and your life will be a long happy one. You body already knows what is needed, all that you must do is to listen, to really listen. "
