Purifying her

It’s much like purifying the gut by following a pure diet. A diet omitting the usual dead stuff. Intake is plant based, preferably raw. No usual suspects stimulating the body by fighting off harrasers like caffeine, sugar, gluten, carbonated sodium and nicotine. Body and gut can take it easy, relax. Sometimes I’ve even taken it one level higher. Adding a special kidney cleansing tea that I drank daily during six weeks. Twice I took a few days to shock treat my liver with a special liver cleanse cure. Emptying the mind is like purifying my brains. At times they become as spasmic as irritated bowels. And then they just need rest, no more input at all, brain diet time.

I rely on e-motion. It's not about the smileys. And yet we live in a digital era where our emotions seem to be annoying attributes to life. Restrained, carefully chosen events to move our senses, are okay. We like to buy our emotions: food, dating sites, concert tickets. The fair exchange for money gives a sense of control over our emotions. Because what if, we freely open up, expose our senses on a daily basis to all that comes around? It means vulnerability. Do we really want to go there? Or do we rather read or fantasize about it? The second part of my life I wish to dedicate to the senses. And as such I'll be re-exploring reality. We say this moment is our life. What is it that this moment beholds? I reckon we haven't got a clue to find out what this moment beholds other then our five senses.
