while I was gone.... my apologies!

My apologies for the silence over the last 10 days or so.... our internet has been "irritable" for a lack of a better word. AHHHHHHHH. For those of you who have had to deal with service providers and their lack of good services! man o man...I think I should send them a bill for the time I have spent so far... close to 10 hours or so on the phone trying to address it.. and finally... almost 2 weeks later... here we are connect to the world again! Allthough it's been kind of nice to be disconnected... now that I am back on... there is a lot of catching up to do!

While I was gone, I had to re evaluate my ways of eating the rawllygoods.... It seems these days unless I do it all by the books.... My body says ah ah sweety.... This ain't for you... By the books I mean soaking EVERYTHING!, more greens than fruits (but I do love them), veggies of all sorts, sprouts, some nuts and seeds, nut and seed yogurt and mylks, fermented foods, wild foods (I think I'm gonna love them even more), and well, that's about it. To the perfect stranger I eat an extremely clean diet.. but it seems that I must continue on my journey of in the art of "fine tuning"... incredible, isn't it. I find it frustrating and overwhelming at times, but at the end of the day I am fascinated by the healing process and by the abundance of information and knowledge that exists. I find it incredible that after the 3 years, I must still put on the 'research' hat and delve deeper into it.

I have been reading the book Conscious Eating by Grabriel Cousens, trying to have a deeper understanding of what I am experiencing. In his book, Dr. Cousens speaks "biochemical individuality", and how literally we are just so different from each other at a biological and chemical that what we eat and how it is assimilated varies drastically from person to person. Finding what your biochemical individuality is a 'process'. A process that takes incorporating Ayurveda principles, understanding the healing properties of foods and herbs to bring balance back into our lives, understanding which biochemical system runs your body and how it really dictates the ratio of protein-carb-fat that our bodies need for optimal functioning. So simple, yet so complex, isn't it, or at least that's how it feels to me right now.

So on I go on my yellow brick road to seek and find that place of optimal health, that place of deep peace and joy, of radiance, of stillness in movement, of deep love and gratitude. Along the way I have met the most wonderful teachers and guides, I am sure more are coming to greet me...
