Natural Shampoo

Finally, my Natural Shampoo is in my Etsy shop! I have been working on this idea for a long time, researching the best ingredients and essential oil fragrances. This is a lovely, gentle shampoo with 3 fresh, clean herbal fragrance choices: Herb Garden, Earth Basil and Lavender Sweet Orange. I was so happy with the little "stars" that appeared in this photo of the shampoo.

I thought these were pretty funny, and thought I'd share. :)

If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

Be here now.

Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated?

Accept misfortune as a blessing.
Do not wish for perfect health, or a life without
What would you talk about?

There is no escaping karma.
In a previous life,
You never called,
You never wrote,
You never visited.
And whose fault was that?

Zen is not easy.
It takes effort to attain nothingness.
And then what do you have?

Let your mind be as a floating cloud.
Let your stillness be as a wooded glen.
And sit up straight.
You'll never meet the Buddha with such rounded shoulders.

Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers.
Each flower blossoms ten thousand times.
Each blossom has ten thousand petals.
You might want to see a specialist.

Be aware of your body.
Be aware of your perceptions.
Keep in mind that not every physical sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.

Those are from "Zen Judaism: For you, a little Enlightenment". Love em. :)

(now, let's see if this goes through...)

Yes, I figured as much! But really, I could hear my mom saying all of these except the "bupkis" part, she'd probably use a bad Italian word instead! :D
