SPIRITUAL SMACK: SCRAPPED EMOTIONS

S P I R I T U A L   S M A C K  |  S C R A P P E D   E M O T I O N S

One of my closest friend and I recently took a floral arrangement class. We hunched over a studio table, picking, choosing, and plucking at our chosen flowers. We had liberty with the palette of our colours, textures, sizes, scents. A pool of peonies and soft-hued tea roses stood in vases above monotonous green clippings. We stayed after the class left to trash the clippings or rather, as I bagged the treasure they called trash.

SPIRITUAL SMACK: LIFE IN LEMONS



S P I R I T U A L   S M A C K  |  L I F E   I N   L E M O N S

Think of a lemon, in all its sour, pungent, tart, dripping and juicy form. Acidic, sharp, and face-twisting. Biting at your lips and your senses. Uncomfortable yet enlivening—a sensory revival. Consumed, it takes a completely different turn of effects on your body: alkaline, balanced, soluble. Acid originally, it has a complete opposite alkaline effect on the body. Disassociated with its external context and shape, it dissolves into neutrality and creates equilibrium or even a higher state. 

This week, let's take what life gives us as lemons. Let's digest the sour, the sad news of our lives with the realisation and trust that when we digest them emotionally + with the time they deserve, they will bring us back to a state of balance. They will elevate us into our own higher form . . .
