A Poem For Your Thursday

Autumn is really here and along with it has come a wave of intense laziness for me. Over the last few weeks I have noticed myself spending more time indoors, taking trains rather than biking to get places, and sleeping in later each day (when I don’t have to be at work). I have not been running as much but more importantly, I have not felt like running as much as I did during summer when the mornings were warm and sunny.

Today I decided I had to get outside. I put on a fleece-lined vest, put my running shoes on, and set out with the best intentions of going to the park for a walk/run. I must have gotten about 10 metres down my road and could not stand to be in the cold and wet (it was drizzling) a moment longer! I turned around and went straight back home.

Instead of feeling defeated and annoyed (those thoughts were really quick on the draw) I decided to do yoga instead. I remember last year, I went to yoga more in the winter because it’s indoors. There wasn’t a class at the studio near me so I put on this YouTube video and did 45 minutes in my lounge.

It was a lovely Vinyasa class and I felt good about moving and getting my body warm and activated. At the end of the class the lady reads a Rumi poem and I want to share that with you. I think it is probably one of the best poems I’ve read about human nature and about mental health.

This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

~Rumi

 

Have a beautiful day!!

    「 生蛇 」( 醫學名稱是 『帶狀疱疹』Shingles ) 是由水痘病毒引起的疾病。水痘癒合後,病毒在神經細胞潛伏多年,日後隨時重新激活後導致的帶狀皮疹,就是「 生蛇 」。因此,凡感染過水痘的人,都有機會「 生蛇 」。病發時,身體某一部位會感到內疼或劇痛,通常是臉或背部及腰部的一側;這時由於病毒從脊髓處沿其中華一條神經擴散到身體以及去到連接的皮膚表面,形成紅疹及小水疱。帶狀疱疹疫苗Zostavax康栢苗 (蛇針)能助減低「 生蛇 」的機會,有效預防: 「 生蛇 」( 帶狀疱疹 ) 成效高達 70% 「 生蛇 」的後遺神經痛:即使紅疹痊癒,神經痛還可以持續數月或數年。年紀越大,持續有後遺 神經痛風險越高 「 生蛇 」引起的急性及長期痛症 不適用人士: 曾對疫苗成分包括明膠( Gelatin ) 及紐奧黴 ( Neomycin ) 有過敏性休克反應的人士 有原發及繼發性免疫系統問題的病患者,或正服用抑鬱免疫系統藥物(如高劑量膽固醇)的病人 患有肺結核,正發病及未經治療人士 孕婦
