Part 3 of 13 Simplicity can be a number of things—reducing your workload; reducing your environmental load on the planet by living more sustainably (hint: honouring the cycle is the number one sustainability practice); it also holds a quality of gentleness, of not forcing things, and staying closer to the simple things of life.
It’s crucial to have this ally if you are to get the most out of menstruation. Arriving at menstruation with too much on your plate you’re likely to explode, feel overwhelmed, overtired or generally numb, all of which block your way to the inner temple of menstruation. So start shedding stuff—jobs and things—as you get closer to menstruation and you will feel a readiness to enter the temple more consciously. You’ll probably notice if you are practicing cycle awareness that you want to do this anyway. We love how the cycle conspires to deliver you to the inner temple regardless of what you think you ought to be doing!
