food full of love

you’ll be given love, you’ll be taken care of, you’ll be given love, you have to trust it. maybe not from the sources, you have poured yours, maybe not from the directions, you are staring at. twist your head around, it’s all around you, all is full of love, all around you. ~bjork, all is full of love

my experience has been you go raw, theirs is no turning back. even if you do glance back there is a pressure to return to raw, an inner acknowledgement that you aren’t putting forth the effort you could to be the person you can be, a manifestation of sunshine and good things from the earth. there are lots of questions we should be asking about all of our food, raw or not. a simple single question is does this food come from love? love is one factor that distinguishes many restaurants from home food preparation. profit margins, trying to combine cost-saving ingredients into gourmet dishes that can bring in money is the focus of almost every eatery and consequently, most of this food is not loving. any context within which money is sweeter than food itself is a precarious one whose foodstuff is not to be injested. if profit has been put ahead of the desire to nourish, to beautify, to heal, to help you radiate, it’s not the best option, raw or not. the creative force that causes the earth to produce food is the utmost loving and then you filter your love when you prepare it. some of the most loving food i’ve ever received involved people climbing trees to get me coconuts, throwing rocks at mangos and catching them for me, perfectly ripe and unbruised, gifts of guava from backyard trees, lovingly selected produce from organic farms and clean(er) water from a cold running stream.

  1. My reaction after reading this was just to lean back in my chair, put my fingertips on my chin, shake my head up & down, and say “Word…”. I think this might be body language most New Yorkers can interpret pretty easily.

  2. Forgive me Cy, as I didn’t even finish reading the post in its entirety; the Bjork excerpt was immense. It is akin to a promise; an exaction that you will be given love but perhaps from an unexpected place. I have to share those words, somewhere. Love her.

    Ok, back to reading the rest. 🙂

    • bjork is deep, her older works stay with me and i need to make the time to scope out her latest release. one of the true tests of an artist to me is live performance. though i’ve never seen bjork live in 3 dimensions, recordings of her live performances immerse her in the rare group of people who are better live, who make their own recorded music sound inferior. 😉

  3. ❤ the Bjork quote …and your blog ❤
