I've been thinking about my need for a spiritual renewal. I need something to help me get out of my... I don't know what you'd call it... complacency? funk?

Anyway, something to jolt me out of my current condition. I found a book at the library called "The Fasting Handbook." It gives reasons for fasting, strategies to prepare yourself for a fast, different types of fasting like water fasts, juice fasts, fasting from speech, sight, the media etc. and it sounds like something I'd like to do. I haven't made up my mind completely, but I feel like it could help me spiritually as well as physically: flushing out toxins in my body, not to mention maybe help me quit smoking. I can't put my finger on exactly why I feel it would help me spiritually, but I guess you could call it intuition. So yeah. That's that.

Also, the other night, a phrase popped into my head: "God always gives you a direction, but it's up to you to find the path."

Alright, more on this later, I'm sure.
