Another excerpt from the book, Soak Your Nuts:
MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE
We all make mistakes. Some mistakes are more serious than others. Some mistakes are more obvious than others. We all make little misses in our lives. The following are some of the most common mistakes...
1. Failure To Set Goals
This is the first mistake. When you have no specific idea, model, or goal, then you can't achieve it. Failing to set a definite and specific goal is a decision to fail.
2. Believing That Your Life Is Controlled By Outside Forces
This force can be astrology, numerology, birth trauma, birth order, or an unhappy childhood. This is a mistake. You are in charge of your life now. It's a mistake to shift responsibility.
3. Confusing The Trivial With The Tragic
It's possible to feel that long hard winters are a tragic event or traffic shouldn't make you wait everyday. Some people get really crazed by late planes, broken buttons, schedule changes. It's a mistake. Tragedy is when you die after leading a wasted life. A child leaving dirty dishes after he said hes does them isn't.
4. Thinking That Things Will Stay The Same
Everything changes. We all know that when love is in our life we think it ought to stay. When we're down and depressed, we think it's here to stay. I'll never laugh again. It's a mistake to think anything will last. Tom Robbin's s novel Still Life With A Woodpecker is about the question, ''How to make love stay?'' It won't. It goes, it grows, and it flows. Its never the same. Neither are sadness, grief, and depression.
5. Letting The One Bad Thing In Your Life Outweigh The Good
''If only I could lose five pounds, then my life would be okay." You give the five pounds a lot of power. You let it spoil all the good in your life. The five pounds outweighs all the good. It's a mistake.
6. Thinking "Don't Make Mistakes"
There's no way a person can live a rich life without taking risks and making mistakes. Being too "security-conscious" is a definite set-up for failure and self-defeat. It's the nature of the human being to make mistakes. Insight and quick recovery is what you want to strive for when a mistake is made.
7. Other People Are Happy
This is a very common belief. "Other people can and should be happy because they don't have my problems. I am the only unhappy person on my block, at school and on the job." When we know the problems of others we usually decide to keep our own.
8. Seeing Everything As "Either/Or"
Hardly anything in life has just two solutions. We think, "I either keep this job or I starve." "I either stay in this relationship or be unhappy the rest of my life." "I either go to Jamaica or I won't have a vacation." "Either you get this or you're stupid, or, you need to read this again or you have a better idea, or you need to think about it some more...
9. If You Ignore Or Avoid Problems They'll Go Away
Will They? Over and over again people find they've got real health problems because they ignored until it's divorce time. A child's sullenness is ignored until the school counselor is calling. A daughter grows up and we ignore the need for sex education. It's a mistake to think problems will go away.
Karyn Calabrese shows how to make Rejuvelac:
I just finished reading her new book, Soak Your Nuts and decided that I would make Rejuvelac.
I found this...she just put it up today!!
2 cups of wheatberries
10 cups of purified water
Soak the wheatberries in 4 cups of water for 24 hours.
Drain and rinse the wheatberries in a large mesh colander. Set aside for 24 hours.
Transfer wheatberries to food processor or blender and process until smooth..
Put ground wheatberries into a clean glass jar. Add remaining 6 cups of water.
Cover with cheesecloth or mesh screen. Use a rubberband to secure it.
Let ferment another 48 hours. The longer it ferments, the stronger it will be.
Strain it and put into clean glass jars. Cover tightly. Stored in the fridge, it will keep for 4 weeks.
If you don't drink all of it before it spoils, water your plants with it! : )
