Fasting is like hitting the reset button. It can be a purifying process - emotionally, physically, spiritually - if done with care, preparation and intentionality.
For several years, parts of me have wanted to permit the release and rebuilding that fasting facilitates. But the time had never been quite right. Doing so would have meant that i was ready to let go of things tightly and safely held in by joints, the safe parts of the soul, untouched corners of my mind. But i wasn't ready. And each attempt ended almost as soon as it started. It hasn't always been that way.
