Just came home from my Egyptian psychic and I feel really exhausted. There was some crystal healing, santeria cleansing and some crying going on in there for a while, and right now I just want to go to bed and sleep. Next week I’m thinking to go to Peru and see a Shaman for some deep and serious healing. I need it.
I call it ”Lightsisters”
It’s for my sister whom I haven’t had contact with for almost 2 years now.. I miss her loads..
I went to bed a bit sad last night, with the feeling of hopelessness and bitterness.. But after reading some encouraging articles about letting go of grief and sorrow I fell asleep and oh boy, the dreams that I had! They were extremely violent yet adventurous, I went to war, and I killed a lot of people. Usually a dream like that would leave a bad and uncomfortable feeling when I wake up, but not this one. I enjoyed every single bit of it. I was brave and I won every battle. Remember the highly intelligent and complicated movie called ”Sucker Punch” where the girl escapes not one, but two realities and fights battles in her mind against various monsters. That’s what I did all night, and I felt like a fucking champion when I woke up. Recharged and stronger than ever.
It’s a waste of life and energy to walk around and be worried and sad, and I think the best way to deal with this is to stop waiting for your feelings to change to take the action. Instead you should take the action and your feelings will change.
”The more you hide your feelings, the more they show. The more you deny your feelings, the more they grow”.
”When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.”
”Never apologize for showing feelings. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.”
”Letting go of the past means that you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.”
We all know how I feel about religion (especially organized ones). And lately I can’t help to notice how Veganism and Rawfood lifestyles are becoming more and more religious. Dear followers, be very wary of DOGMA. Be very ware, when someone has fixed beliefs and comes up to you and tells you with some ideas, some conception on how things are suppose to be and you get that tense feeling inside and your like – ”STOP, wait, I’m not sure if I agree with this..” That is great. Question EVERYTHING.
Life. Need. Not. Be. A. Religion. It need not be full of inherited beliefs and fixed ideas that you have to hold on to. Rawfood is a great lifestyle, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a shitty religion. Unfortunately I see a lot of people who treat it like a religion. They suffer from guilt when they’re not eating raw, and they get a distaste in their mouth when they see other people eating for example meat or drinking milk.
It’s much better to be open to different ideas and yeah, if you adapt certain lifestyle habits and end up being 95% raw food vegan because you really enjoy it, then thats beautiful! BUT to use the mind to control the body is ugly, because the body will eventually revolt, and you will automatically swing 180 degrees in the opposite direction. (Trust me, been there done that) If you’re always on extremes in life, you will eventually move towards the other extreme. Thats why you sometimes see girls that’s been anorexic then all of a sudden blow up and be obese. It’s just one extreme to the other.
You cant’ be bouncing back and forth like that.. And you don’t need to if you can just realize some simple truths and stop using these lifestyles as if they were religions. Frederic Patenaude is coming out with a new book called ”The best of cooked and the best of raw” which I think is great, because he teaches a great middle road, so people can adapt that and incorporate more raw and vegan foods in to their lives but without any dogma.
Listen, I get soooo many emails from people all over the world thanking me for helping them become vegans, and I can’t tell you how happy and proud that makes me because that means less animals tortured and killed, but please remember – Before you adapt these type of lifestyles, make sure you do it for the right reason, otherwise you will be bouncing back and forth. I decided not to eat meat because I think it’s unethical, but I eat cheese sometimes when I really crave it, and thats not because I’m under-carbed or need more calories, its because life’s too damn short. Life’s too short to avoid a piece of cheese now and then. And since being vegan is not a religion, who’s gonna crucify me? You want to follow your heart, follow your being and do what your heart tells you to do. Be kind to yourself. So yes, enjoy lots of fruits, eat lots of organic and fresh veggies, but don’t make it your religion. You don’t convert to Veganism, you don’t swear an oath and you’re definitely not going to hell if you accidentally have honey in your tee.
So yes, if you care about the animals, stop consuming so much meat and dairy, but don’t curse those who don’t. Instead teach them with love and compassion, not resentment. Educate youselves and be healthy, but don’t punish yourselves if you happen to cheat once in a while. Namaste’
