The nature of change...

“If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.”

 Dan Millman from Way of the Peaceful Warrior

I often wonder if change is supposed to be a 'natural' fear for us. It doesn't seem that it should be because change is the Universal language. Night becomes Day, Winter becomes Spring, Life becomes Death. We see change everywhere around us everyday, yet we are sooooo afraid of embracing it. We get so stuck in our awful routines that we lose our sense of wonder and curiosity. Where's the spontaneity? Where's the passion? Where's the growth? Where's the change? I believe that we all could live more fulfilling lives if we made change a part of our daily regime. So I give you a new *Mission of the Week*....

Make a slight change to your life everyday. Even if you just take the scenic route to work while enjoying your favorite music, switch it up a bit. Renew you lust for life by embracing change and accepting it as a part of the natural flow of things.

I am currently reading Living Our Bliss by the beautiful sun goddess Asante George. For all of you who have ever thought raw foods where too complicated......pleeeeeeease read this book. She gives raw food a much more simple, natural, and gentle approach while still managing to let you know exactly how everything works. Not only does this book include nutrition information, but she includes some unique yuuuuuuumy recipes as well as much needed detox tips. There's also a 'resources' section that provides you with links and other fabulous books to further aid you on your RAW journey.
Living Our Bliss could be the beginning of a beautiful transformation in your life. You'd be astonished at the changes that eating (at least 50%) raw could bring into your life. It's so much more than nutrition.

Ooooooooooodles of LOVE,
