Raw Pot Luck at Toronto Sprouts

Last night we held the monthly raw pot luck event in the city at work- Toronto Sprouts. It had formerly been held for the past few years in a party room in Kensington Market. I liked having it at our place.we have a comfortable atmosphere, warm energy and good music there.

I realized that I have really been slipping in the camera dept. I forgot to bring mine & have to rely on, and post a few pics taken by, other people who were there. (note to self: carry camera in purse, just in case!)
1st pic was pre-party.. we were relaxing & playing with osho tarot cards.
(ps..I just got a great one- Adventure! see below : )

The table is starting to get filled - soo many great raw dishes. I don't even have a pic of the full tables!

We are writing the ingredients in the dishes. I suggested starting a blog just for the pot lucks where we post the recipes from the dishes made. Pics would be great..Marie suggested personal stories. Maybe that will happen for next month if I am a little more focused or I should say have a bit more time on my hands... (???) ..or maybe can just visualize this into existence.. I am loving this visualization bit! ..I am working on a position for myself as Chief Visionary Officer ..& Rawketscientist, I really like that. (hey, we can have several titles - why not?)
..but yes, Raw recipes and Pot-Luck blog coming soon. Maybe something interactive - Toronto could use that..I am surprised we don't have one already! ..but, never too late.

Mmmm.. dragonfruit!

Jan cutting her most amazing raw cheezecake- it was incredible. I will be posting the recipe for this & several other favorite dishes from the pot luck soon. That's Mi-San with the bowl what we are not seeing here is all the other amazing deserts on a table in front of them. Raw desserts are the best & there were lots of them!

Mmmm.. the cheezecake!- it was even better than it looks - raw rivals the cooked dairy version anyday! ..ask anyone who has experienced both! & you can eat lots & feel amazing afterwards.

ok, it's that Osho time of the day again!

#38 - Adventure

Zen says truth has nothing to do with authority, truth has nothing to do with tradition, truth has nothing to do with the past - truth is a radical, personal realization. You have to come to it.

Knowledge is certain; the search for personal knowing is very, very hazardous. Nobody can guarantee it. If you ask me if I can guarantee anything, I say I cannot guarantee you anything. I can only guarantee danger, that much is certain. I can only guarantee you a long adventure with every possibility of going astray and never reaching the goal. But one thing is certain: the very search will help you to grow.

I can guarantee only growth. Danger will be there, sacrifice will be there; you will be moving every day into the unknown, into the uncharted, and there will be no map to follow, no guide to follow. Yes, there are millions of dangers and you can go astray and you can get lost, but that is the only way one grows.

Insecurity is the only way to grow, to face danger is the only way to grow, to accept the challenge of the unknown is the only way to grow.
