So you want to be enlightened?

I could have just as easily titled this so you want to be wealthy, so you want to be successful, or so you want to be happy, but we’re going to assume you want to be… enlightened!
Your bookcase is filled with the timeless wisdom of the masters. You consider yourself spiritual (and you probably are). Perhaps you’ve decided to forgo crass materialism. Maybe you’ve decided to live a life of service and have dedicated yourself to helping others. You pray, meditate and/or chant daily.
But how’s your health?
When was the last time you made sure you had enough exercise?
What do you eat?
How much sleep do you get?
While it is true that we are not this physical vehicle, it is just as true that we are in this physical vehicle, and affected by it. The foundation for our success in any endeavor is our health and it is in our best interest to make that foundation as firm as possible.
So just as we learn to control our emotions, breathe, meditate, pray, find and connect with God, we must also learn how to best support our physical vehicles, for it is through them that the Divine must work through us.
Preventive care and maintenance is much easier than fixing something that has gone wrong. That said, I believe it is key for our spiritual growth that we learn about and study natural methods to keep good health. One of my favorite sources of health information is Catherine Carter over at (aptly titled) Creating Health but the subject of good health is so important and so broad that I decided to ask others for their favorites.
The complete list will be maintained on a page created here on this blog so that any and everyone can have quick access to some of the best health writers around.
So I’m asking Catherine and all who read this post, who provides you the best information on diet, exercise, health news, stress management, healthy cooking, or natural & alternative medicine?
Consider yourselves all tagged! Be sure to include a link back here and one to the blogger you’re advocating so I can update the list!
To your success AND your health,
