M is for Music
Sometimes I don’t realize that I’m thirsty until I take a sip of water.
My body shouts THIS! THIS! And I drink until it shuts up.
Sometimes I don’t realize that I’m hungry until I take a bite.
My body screams FOOD! FOOD! And I eat until it stops screaming.
Music Deficiency Disorder
I didn’t realize how much I needed music until the other day.
I listened to one song, then another, then another. I wrote a blog post about Hanukkapella, the Hanukkah acapella I’d been listening to. then another about a song I’d found: Im HaShem lo Yivneh Bayit and then another about the music of the PENTATONIX
Even then, I didn’t realize how much it had been missing from my life, and how much I needed it. That came today.
I realized I’d been suffering from Music Deficiency Disorder—MDD.
And then, I realized it’s not the only thing that’s missing.
And then, I decided what I’m going to do about it.
Psychamin Deficiency Disorders
Vitamins are needed—in at least small amounts—to maintain the vitality and health of the body. Because the body is physical, vitamins are physical things—chemicals.
Psychamins are needed—at least in small amounts—to maintain the vitality and health of the psyche, or spirit. Because the psyche is immaterial, psychamins are immaterial—ideas and experiences.
To stay physically healthy, we need vitamin A, nine different B vitamins, vitamins C, D, E, and K, and so on.
To stay psychologically healthy, we need more. I’ve so far identified nearly 30 different pychamins, including at least three different C psychamins and four different F vitamins.
My need for music was thus a Psychamin M deficiency disorder.
I plan to prevent Pyschamin Deficiency Disorders by identifying the Psychamins I need, making sure to take supplements regularly, watching for deficiency symptoms, and taking extra doses when I need them.
Now it’s time for one of this morning’s M Pyschamins (music) and a little bit of Psychamin G1 (Gratitude).
