Bad Back: Positive Thinking

Do not let circumstances influence your thoughts and moods. By rising over them mentally, you will eventually rise over them materially.

OK, so, whilst on the way back from college on Monday my back started aching.  It really ached.  I did light yoga on Tuesday morning, got up, went out, had a bath and relaxed.  Yesterday morning came, and my back was a bit achy but not so bad.  So, I did a bit more light yoga.  Whilst lying on my front and about to turn over.  I had the most excruciating pain shoot right up my back, it literally felt like a rod charged with electricity was attached to me.  I felt really warm and like I was going to pass out.  I lay there for about 2 hours before giving in and deciding I needed professional help!!  

The doctor came, and now I have to rest, but keep my back active. I have painkillers and muscle relaxants to try and help.  Today I am feeling a bit better.  I need to do some study, meditation, eat healthy and have a warm bath.  I am positive that I will feel better by tomorrow.

I found the rally/event that I wanted to attend.  It is by the Socialist Worker Student Society. The flyer is below.  Click here to see the events taking place over the weekend and to book a place. 



There is some fabulous background reading available on their website, which I am going over this morning.  

I also came across loads of other thought provoking websites, The Peoples United Community being one.  It is basically for being 'free' from controlling capitalism, governments and so on.  There is some interesting articles on there, which can really challenge what seems to be the Western ingrained way of thinking. I would advise taking the articles with a pinch of salt however it is good to consider the other side of the coin t what we have been taught.

Recently I have been listening to classical music whilst researching, reading and taking notes.  One of my favourite pieces is also famous for being in American Beauty: Any Other Name:
