Weekly Log #49: Cannot Even

My weekly ritual for looking at the week that was.

Weekly Log copy

Cannot even. I am still in “despondent state/life crisis” and I just cannot even.
But I’m here, so I’m logging.

  • Despondent State, also known as “I just cannot even with life”, is really challenging. I don’t feel like doing anything, and I am suffering tremendously. Like “I just don’t want to live anymore”. It’s astonishing that despite all the yoga and meditation, and my new found belief in re-incarnation, that thereby prevents me from committing suicide, the “suicidal feeling” is still there. I cannot wait for this incarnation to be over, and I keep feeling I am “done” and have nothing else to live for. A breath for trying to accept even this.
  • My Carpal tunnel syndrome is back. Haven’t had it for years, and now it’s back. Argh. I don’t understand why and I cannot even.
  • I made a purchase. I went from “OK, I’m going to get a thing to make my life easier” to “I will research said thing” to actually buying it, all within 24 hours. And it was a really expensive purchase, ie: £34! Wow. Just wow. Maybe progress happening somewhere.
  • Following what has been happening on Greece, because why not, I have no life to speak of. Getting outraged and enraged at the extent of social injustice, and I am even more frustrated by the fact that few people truly understand what is going on and I am one of them, though just about. If only the planet listened to me, but it doesn’t, and so I am miserable and the world keeps doing stupid things.
  • I went to the beach! And got in the sea! Even though it was past 7pm and rather cold! But the sea, dude, the sea! Proud face.
  • I made homemade pesto and it was the best. On a related note, I am beginning to worry about developing a mild food “issue”, since all the excitement in my life (which is very… insufficient) derives from food. A breath for what is.
  • Hanging out with Super Friend, making falafels, eating cheesecake, and sharing thoughts. The best.
  • Huge meltdown. It was seriously bad. I cried for what seemed like 2 days straight.

Moments of Insight

*silent retreat, as it is personal; it involved music, which is how I connect to meaning*

Things of Considerable Worth (Un-missables!)

Dear God, but this Log was hard to write.
I’m here. I am showing up. *takes deep breath and presses “publish”*

Let the Light Reach You

The challenge facing us right now is this: we must find a way to keep going while we hold the suspicion that everything in our lives will get worse.
We must practice finding the light inside us.

Mental Health for Political Activists

In this workshop I explain how the world of “politics” and the world of “self-healing” clash because they have different narratives. The way to resolve this is to separate between the “personal” and the “political”.
