Around the holidays I indulged and ate something I knew I shouldn't and spent the rest of the night nursing a gallbladder attack. As I was lying awake, savoring my pity party, I decided it was high time to do a dialogue with my gallbladder and find out what it wanted. That's when I heard my gallbladder say, "I want less."

This idea of less isn't a new theme for me. In fact, I heard this same message last January when I was sick, lying in bed with a fever, thinking, "I don't want anything and this feels really good to me. I feel at peace."
I'm not sure how I got to this place, but I believe it might be meditation. The state of emptiness I experience during meditation feels so natural that perhaps it's spilling out into my daily life.
Over the last several years, I've cut a lot of stuff out of my life and not just the tangible things like food, TV, and material possessions. Some of the stuff I've reduced is emotional. I've minimized engaging in emotional drama that distracts me from a clear path, and I owe this growth to working with Lemonade Mantras.
The only place to go from more is less. It is a place we will all end up being. What is more getting you that less doesn't already fulfill?
