From epigenetics to mathematics
Smart sounding title, and I wish I could create a wonderful intelligent link between the two subjects. Sadly, it’s only what I first started learning in the morning, and what I last studied. Nothing glamorous nor complex. I also read on procaryote midway through my day; happily, I don’t get bored by the details of my future career.
My focus was on advancing in my studies nothing more — but more did happen. I got back to my intellectual/personal growth audio reading, and I experienced a series of realizations. “What Happened To You?”, by Dr Perry and Oprah Winfrey, is becoming my favourite overall health book. From blood sugar level fluctuations due to stress to intergenerational epigenetic, at a physiological level mental illness is superbly explained. I now understand why Oprah explains at the beginning to take your time reading, and take breaks often to process what is written. It’s not the complexity of the subject that strikes, it’s very well summerized. What demands to stop between notions is the profound impact the information will have on you.
You’ll recognize yourself, and anyone you ever known. You’ll forgive those who’ve wronged you, or at least gain understanding. You’ll start seeing every interaction in a new light. Most importantly, you will stop being harsh on yourself since some neuropsychological mechanism are beyond your conscious control. Above scientific understanding, you will achieve great compassion — I would even say, higher love.
A quiet ascension to my greater self continues. In a slow, safe, and nurturing way, I’m moving forward on all fronts of my primary goals; school, health, and stability. It’s been a year since I started this blogging journey, who I was is miles away from who I am now. What will I become in a year? I’m smiling at the fact that I know perfectly well that I’ll be someone I appreciate even more. In the meantime, this blog will track my progress.
I’m grateful to enjoy my own cooking more.
(Coming from a restoholic who’s addicted to the diversity of menus offering dozens of instant choices, it’s a big deal. I know how to cook really well, but I’ve always been bored by the favour balance I tend to strike regardless of how many changes I bring to my spice rack or ingredients. Ether my taste buds are less picky, or I developed a way to season that’s keeping me entertained. I think it’s a bit of both.)
