Courage, Truth and Doing Good ..and Beauty and Fireworks

Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it may never be enough: Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God: it was never between you and them anyway.” – Mother Teresa

"Only the hand that erases can write the true thing.”
Meister Eckhardt (via wephala) (via azultierra)

“This is what I believe: That I am I.
That my soul is a dark forest.
That my known self will never be more than a little clearing in the forest.
That gods, strange gods, come forth from the forest into the clearing of my known self, and then go back.
That I must have the courage to let them come and go.” 

— D.H. Lawrence

Another beautiful soul just passed away of Cancer. I love the world and all the beauty in the world.. but I have my issues with cancer. ..and the lives it takes away. It makes me very sad.  Its Victoria day, it is beautiful and sunny outside, flowers, laughing, playing... I am going to go watch fireworks tonight at the beach. Life is beautiful! Love life! xo

Green Smoothies, Raw Living, Love and a Quiet Mind

Hi. I'm listening to Byron Katie while I type this. I love Byron Katie, Love her!! I think she is creating a lot of peace in the world. I think she can solve everything!! ; )   

I love writing my blog. But I'm having a bit of a hard time getting through this period in my life writing it.. as what I am doing is not bloggable, at least yet.  I have been working every day creating and testing new raw recipes. How appropriate for my blog!! .. and yet I cant blog it.. like I said, yet. So, those of you who are sticking with me and checking in every once in awhile.. thanks. I am slowly keeping it going until I can post more.. you all know how much I like to write and post!!

I am still living on green smoothies.. on days when I am not in the test kitchen I drink usually 2-3 big ones a day. I get at least one in on testing days. & I really miss it and feel it when I dont drink as many. ..or get enough green. I pop chlorella, mushroom caps, turmeric, enzymes, maca, etc etc (not all at the same time) but regularly.   
I had a huge Taboulli salad tonight.  I made zucchetti & marinara last night. I am enjoying keeping it simple.. I always have a case of mangoes going now (its mango season), I regularly make almond milk, keep lots of granola, bananas.. crackers antipasto..  oh tomatoes, really into tomatoes these days ..and sprouts of course!

I still (always) consider myself so blessed to have discovered Raw Living!!

I need to stretch a lot these days.. I wonder if its detox ..or spring?  ..maybe its some sort of inner awakening?  ..I may not know till its too late!! ; ) 

"Think of all the pleasures in life -- food, friends, love, hot showers, babies, nature, the sky, animals, dancing, singing, creative expression, books, music, films, the Internet, beauty, sunshine, skin, touch, sensuality, massage, swimming, water, fruit…the list goes on…. Make a list of pleasures, and see! Did someone design this place as a giant amusement park for us?" ~ Jinjee

"Maybe everything we've ever done has been for love" ~ Byron Katie

“The most valuable skill that you could ever develop is the skill of directing your thoughts toward what you want—to be adept at quickly evaluating all situations and then quickly coming to the conclusion of what you most want—and then giving your undivided attention to that.” ~ Esther & Jerry Hicks from Money, and the Law of Attraction

A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part. ~Anonymous

Happy Mothers Day to you and me and everyone whoever helped a child grow.


e e cummings

if there are any heavens my mother will (all by
herself) have
one. It will not be a pansy heaven nor
a fragile heaven of lilies-of-the-valley but
it will be a heaven of blackred roses 

my father will be (deep like a rose
tall like a rose) 

standing near my 

(swaying over her
with eyes which are really petals and see 

nothing with the face of a poet really which
is a flower and not a face with
which whisper
This is my beloved my 

(suddenly in sunlight 

he will bow, 

& and the whole garden will bow)

Thoughts on Happiness

Choose Happiness. In order to be happy, its important to choose happiness. It is a choice we make. : ) 

Choose to be an environment of happiness. Choose to be around people who bring you up and make you feel good. Choose to listen to positive information. Listen to Optimistic, Successful, Creative and Motivational people.

Eat Healthy. Get enough Sleep. Exercise.
Food does affect your emotions and attitude. Raw foodists naturally feel happy, connected, an inner joy of being alive, its not coincidental.. its coded into the food, it fills us with light and makes us feel good. 

Take action. Be Pro-Active. Give back to the Universe.
Happy people are often those who are giving to others, those who get out of themselves and give back. It is this giving out which fills us up and we feel complete and satiated and abundant.

Gratitude. When we are thankful we are acknowledging what we Have and what IS in out life. This naturally makes us feel full, complete and abundant.
It also puts us into the Now.. out of the past (fear) or the future (worry). When we are fully in the now, there is no fear or worry, those states only belong in the ego mind and never in the now.

Do things that make you feel good. 

Do your best. Always.

But mostly choose to be happy ..and then, expect happiness.
