Q: How many women with PMS does it take to change a light bulb?

A: One. Only ONE!! And do you know WHY? Because no one else in this
damn house knows HOW to change a light bulb! They don't even care
that the bulb is BURNED OUT! They would sit in the dark for DAYS before
they figured it out. And, once they figured it out, they wouldn't be able
to FIND the light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME
CUPBOARD for the past 17 YEARS!!!
But if they did, by some miracle, actually find them 2 DAYS LATER the
chair they dragged to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL
I'm sorry...what did you ask me?
We know exercise is good medicine. It can help prevent disease and control chronic illness, even prolong life.

But beyond the easily validated scientific facts lies a spiritual side to exercise. The integration of action, thought and
emotion creates a vital life force that enhances our workouts along with our quality of life. The new age of science and
medicine is beginning to draw on spirituality to help people cope with illness and enhance health, with good reason: This
inner source is a cost-effective therapy with virtually no negative side effects!

"Mind-body" practices such as yoga, meditation, t'ai-chi, aikido and karate combine a spiritual framework with physical
activity to produce a contemplative, self-reflective state in the participant. Many of these practices incorporate Eastern
philosophies, which have long recognized the interconnectedness of the body and spirit.

In addition to these activities, just about any workout can help you get in touch with your spirituality. Exercise such as
running or cycling produces a natural tendency to focus inward, and requires you to draw on your vital inner force to
transcend perceived barriers of intensity, distance or duration. Regularly overcoming your physical inertia can give you the
confidence to tackle the social and emotional challenges of everyday life, and the calm feeling you experience following
exercise can help you feel centered and balanced.

Here are some ways to attain a more spirited workout:

Take time beforehand to examine goals for your workout or to reaffirm your health priorities for the day (such as, eat five
fruits and vegetables, drink more water, take time for relaxation).

During your workout, pick a theme and focus. Often your creative spirit percolates to the surface during a good aerobic
session. I was able to conceptualize a majority of this article while running!

Take 10 minutes at the end of your workout to meditate. This can give you a profound sense of relaxation, which you can
draw upon in stressful situations later to control your reactions.

Play relaxing music during the cool-down period. Music helps integrate physical senses with feelings and emotions, and
you can call on the relaxation response when the music is played at other times of the day.

Try taking a class in one of the established mind-body activities such as the martial arts or yoga, or purchase a videotape
for home use. You may find the formal instruction invaluable in helping you make the connection.

Practice controlled breathing. Assume a comfortable position so that the body does not disturb the mind as it links itself to
breathing, and then practice varying ratios of inhalation to exhalation, allowing the abdomen to extend as you inhale. Rest
and reflect when you are done.

Only a handful of controlled research studies in the United States have explored the mind-body connection, but already
these practices have proved helpful in the treatment of conditions such as cardiovascular disease and asthma.

Tapping your spiritual self through exercise can help you transcend physical and emotional barriers and achieve a more
balanced life. And as we move forward in the new millennium, it is important to look back on where we have been.
Perhaps we will continue to learn from philosophers like Aristotle and Plato who combined science, philosophy and
metaphysics in a unified approach to life.

The Garden of Eden

"Lord, I have a problem."

"What's the problem, Eve?"

"I know that you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, as well as that hilarious
comedic snake, but  I'm just not happy.

"And why is that Eve?"

"Lord, I am lonely, and I'm sick to death of apples."

"Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create man for you."

"Man? What is that Lord?"

"A flawed creature, with many bad traits. He'll lie, cheat and be vain; all in all, he'll give you a hard time. But he'll be bigger, faster
and will like to hunt and kill things. I'll create him in such a way that he will satisfy your physical needs. He will be witless and
will revel in childish things like fighting, traveling fast in strange objects, and kicking a ball about. He won't be as smart as you, so
he will also need your advice to think properly."

"Sounds great," says Eve, with ironically eyebrows raised, "but what's the catch Lord?"

"Well, can have him on one condition."

"And what's that Lord?"

"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant and you'll have to let him believe that I made Him first. And it will have to
be our little secret!

"You know, woman to woman."
