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.
We are experiencing intense times. Full of turbulence. It’s stormy, outside and inside. Sometimes, it feels so overwhelming, there seems to be nothing else. Everything is moving faster and faster. For many, more and more seems to be falling apart in those recent years.
In short: life is ALIVE – and if you have not been used to it before, it may be very frightening, very overwhelming.
Simple living. Simple eating. Simply being. And experiencing the fullness, the abundance, of life in it.
Flowing with the river of life and choosing my direction, my path in it.
In connection, in alignment, with nature, recognizing its fullness. The fullness in me. The fullness of life. Providing for all our needs and nourishing all beings.
There is this part inside, calling you. This part of you, that will be deeply disappointed if you don’t do certain things in your life. We often call it our heart. Listen to it!
Do these things, no matter if they don’t seem to be sensible or practical, or if they don’t fit in your agenda. Be in this moment. Here. Not following your habits but what you feel, sense, in this very moment. Check in with your body and do nothing but what you really want to do. Let go of any agenda you may have.
Feel the freedom of THIS MOMENT.
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.
All your life they have been telling you that you are small.
Or too much.
Weak and powerless.
Not worth it.
That you are limited, and that what you want is not possible.
That you will fail.
Life is hard.
You have to work hard to earn love
That’s how life is, they said.
No way to change it.
But … NONE of all this is true!!!
