There’s a reason why my friend, raw foodist Chef BeLive calls his e-book “Orgasm of the Taste Buds”. When the food we eat is filled with light or life force, so are we! And our life force is the same as our sexual energy, or the creative energy we use to manifest anything in our lives!
Not that you have to eat all raw food (I don’t!) But there is something about living raw, which transcends diet to living fully and authentically and passionately, that really appeals to me.
And I see that most dis-ease in the body happens when our life force gets stopped. This, as I see, has to happen before something “happens to us” (i.e. before we catch a cold or get a disease.
Even scientists will say that there are bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc. all over the place, but they only thrive in certain conditions. And besides these usual suspects which “cause” health issues, today most people are also exposed to tons of chemicals, heavy metals, radiation, and other toxins– most of which are due to living a very un-natural life!
While most of us can’t live in today’s world without at least some exposure to these things, we absolutely CAN live with more vitality and authenticity. We can’t control external influences, or even our bodies, but we CAN control our relationship to them.
And as you may have noticed in your personal relationships or those of your loved ones, trying to control things never works, but changing yourself and your attitude can bring miracles! Ignoring those we’re in relationship to doesn’t work either.
But we can learn to dance. Beginning with listening to our feelings moment-by-moment and moving with them (whether literally dancing or not), we end up in a great place to dance with another, or simply to live peacefully in our bodies.
When I observe people’s relationships, I see so many half-in half-out. There’s another body nearby but each person is in their own little world.
And the sad part to me is that our society accepts this. People think, “This is as good as it gets.”
All it would take for a couple, for instance, is to lie together and breathe for 5 minutes and BOOM- deep connection- but instead people rush around in preoccupation and complain later about the other.
When I read people’s bodies and health, I see something similar…
The liver is manic because it’s overloaded and no one is listening so it gets more manic. The brain is operating off old programs that lead nowhere and aren’t true, but the person confuses these patterns with real feelings and chases them attempting to survive. A woman’s hormones take over her entire being and she can’t make wise decisions about relationships.
It amazes me that our society thinks things like headaches, constipation, and PMS are normal. I am shocked to witness how many people are on prescription drugs– often many and at a young age.
While these symptoms are common in today’s world, they are not “normal” but are our bodies way of communicating a disharmony. While drugs have their place, I feel the mass reliance on them would not be necessary if we simply communicated with our bodies and chose a healthy diet, lifestyle and relationship with ourselves and others.
People say they don’t know how to do that but I believe we do know.
If we’ve only been exposed to processed food, of course, there may be some education needed to realize the benefits of other options. But in terms of what feels good and bad to our bodies and relationships, if we only pause and listen it’s pretty obvious what works and what doesn’t.
You don’t have to have the final answer to start a conversation. Your answer may not match up with anyone else’s, nor with anything you’ve been taught or shown, and there are no tests and no grades.
But you do know. Ask yourself…
