I\'m 3 days into this cleanse...  "Complete Colon Cleanse"  ...I\'m doing the 6 day cleanse.
http://www.thecompletecoloncleanse.com/
There is a lot of info in that book.  A friend of mine does a "spring cleaning" every year and this year I decided to join her.  I keep having intense daydreams about fast food though.

I also just started this...  "Tantra Unveiled"
http://www.himalayaninstitute.org/store/product/533d3d77-545e-41ec-b270-eaa76aa2da8b.aspx
It is suggested reading for a teaching I\'m going to at the Himalayan Institute.  I\'m excited!

wow, that\'s a serious cleanse, it makes me scared to consider it!  haha.

thanks to reading Fast Food Nation and other information along those lines, the thought of fast foods and fast food type foods turns my stomach even in my most famished states.

those look like good reading, thanks for sharing.  don\'t blow away from all that cleansing!

Truth:  it's OK if they don't understand.  if you follow it, stay true to it, and respect it, you could be in store for the greatest journey you could ever imagine.

Are you referring to my waif-like stature or the activity of my colon?

The cleanse has been going pretty well.  Not what I expected.  I went in expecting a poop fest.  But what has actually been happening is more of a wringing.  Not literally, but I feel toxins emanating through my skin...like sweating  fast food...but I really don\'t eat much fast food at all, so...  Anyway, everybody\'s body is different.

started today . . .

Bill Bruford The Autobiography ( Yes, King Crimson,
Earthworks and more ).

I am super excited about this one. So far it is very good.
Bill has a nice humorous touch to his writing. He has been
one of my favorite drummers most of my life, so this is quite
the treat. I\'m sure I\'ll plow through this one fast.

...also picked up and will start tonight....

H.P. Lovecraft ( and Others )

No shit? Sorry....

I have tried a one-week natural cleanse, you  are right expecting uncontrollable bowels but it\'s more of a detox. I felt mentally more aware after completing it.

So, once cleansed physically, it\'s off to Tantraville? Interesting journey. I have been downloading Srila Prabhupada\'s lectures, and am quite amazed. Saving them as mp3s and listening at the gym. How long will you be going to the institute?

I am going to a 4 day seminar.

I just want to point out that the Western concept of Tantra is pretty much the exact opposite of what Tantra really is.  In reality, sex is irrelevant.

I\'m particularly excited to learn about the nadi system.

of Colonics and Tantric Sex this Post is Not. (little Yoda speak for this Saturday)

I have not read this yet, but highly suggest YOU skamper out your door or window to Your local Bookstore and pick up...

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame Smith Quirk Books 12.95 USD..

if You already have this book, stop now for I will try to reproduce the back cover.


So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton --and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she is soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy.What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two lovers-- and even more violent sparring on the blood soaked battle field. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you\'d actually want to read.

"It is a Truth universally acknowledged that a Zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains"

""I am officially beyond stoked for this book."" - ? ? ?  Entertainment weekly

""The real question is: If Mr Darcy became infected, would Elizabeth have the fortitude to behead him in time"" -

If anyone is interested in learning more about Tantra, this author is a good source:  Swami Satyananda Saraswati
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=swami+satyananda+saraswati

I just cracked open Kundalini Tantra.  My yoga teacher has read several of these books and to quote her, these books are "not fluff, they\'re the real deal."

Read this on the recommendation of an author friend of mine.  It\'s rather mild but she\'s got a way with words :)

Worth a trip to the local biblio
