From Portugal through Spain, France and Luxembourg to Germany – the first big trip with my future café bus took me to Germany – already a few weeks ago; now I finally get to tell you about it – and about the progress of my bus café project.
There is no such thing as “catching a disease”. What there is though are various methods of the body to rid itself of pollutants and toxines. These do not magically end up in your body, and detoxification symptoms are not a random misfortune, nor are they something triggered by some replicating micro-organism. They are a process of elimination.
Our paths do not always unfold as we imagined when we set out. The experience of not being able to live one’s dream in the form or at the time we had envisioned can bring a lot of disappointment, sadness, anger, feelings of failure, and so on. This is okay and fine to be felt – but it absolutely does not mean that there is something wrong with us, that the dream has failed, or even that we should give up on our dreams.
I can only ever live my dream in this moment anyway. All of life takes place now, only in this moment. Not sometime in the future, not in the past.
Some impressions from my raw food café … things i came up with along my way, travelling this beautiful planet.
All raw, vegan and homemade with lots of love.
Cinnamon buns in Tenerife, orange tarte and marble cake in Portugal, chocolate mint icecream, served in a pitahaya half in Tenerife, date-coconut-treats in Luxor, Egypt.
Choco Crossies, fruit plate, mini cakes, mousse au chocolat, Raw-Reos, chocolat bars, tirawmisu, lemon tarte.
… and there is more than just sweet dishes.
…. like pizza, pasta, veggie fingerfood, cheeze.
All this (and whatever else i will come up with) is raw, vegan, and homemade with lots of love!
You have read it here lots of times: my suggestion to follow your body. Only your body. Your inner truth. Nothing else. In each moment. No dogma, no rules, no expectations – neither those of others nor your own. And this applies to your food choices as well as to all other choices you need to make in your life.
Because this is the one way to happiness, to health. In the end, this is what freedom means. You, only you, deciding, what you allow in your body, what you will do, and what you won’t. And it is the only way to a truly nourishing and satisfying way of eating and living. Only what is in harmony with your real needs and you inner truth, will make you happy and content.
Today, i want to have a closer look at this. How does this work, following your own body? How can i do this, in everyday life? Doesn’t it take some discipline, strict rules, knowledge about nutrients etc, to thrive and be happy on a raw vegan diet? What do i do if my body is craving unhealthy food, fast food, – this is not healthy desire, is it?
For quite a while i have been feeling that our way of living, based on money or other ways of direct exchange prevents us from real togetherness and keeps us, or at least the most of us, in the illusion and experience of scarcity.
It’s not meant to be like this. It could be so easy. Give and receive freely. Just like nature.
Every tree gives away its fruit freely. Every flower is blossoming in her beauty. They don’t ask us to pay for it. And yet, they receive everything they need.
When we simply are and do, what we really wish to, live it, give it – we ourselves will be fullfilled and happy and will share our joy as well as our creations, our insights, our harvest, our time, … with those around us.
When each one is doing what they love, and giving what they want to give, everyone’s needs are taken care of.
