A Special Day to Show LOVE?
I know that obviously Im not the first person to mention this,
but I think as far as the raw foodies are concerned,
I have a very "romanticized" version of how they act and think.
I'd like to believe that they are independent enough in the their
minds and hearts to not really participate in such a made-up
day that was created to sell mediocre chocolates and cards.
I'd like to believe that they are so full of love that what
they are "supposed" to do on Valentine's Day
actually mirrors their activities 3-4 times a week.
Is Valentine's Day really for lovers?
Or is it for the people who don't usually show love the rest of the year?
And why do we feel that we have to consume products to show love? Hmmmm.
Did any of us go out on the 14th and fight the crowds for a dinner table?
Did we BUY something that we normally wouldn't have?
Could we have waited till Friday to buy flowers?
Shouldn't we be buying flowers once a week anyways?
Here's an idea. STAY HOME.
Stay home, and make dinner together with your lover.
Make chocolates TOGETHER and put your love into that bowl with every swirl.
Make a wonderful raw meal in your own kitchen.
Then sit down, enjoy the food that you both made...not strangers,
and think about how much quieter and more romantic it is
compared to some crowded restaurant full of people eating and working.
Then, follow it up with a nice warm coconut (or olive or almond) oil massage,
and wrap it up with whatever suits your fancy :)
OR...go to a Chocolate Party held by Raw Foodies...cant go wrong with that.
More active yes, but of course still really fun.
Maybe I should have typed this on Wednesday, but I wanted to
see what everyone was up to. There is always next year.
WAIT! There is always NOW. RIGHT??
Valentine's Day is supposed to be a day you show how much you care.
Get off of this consumer mind-track and show your love to your lover
and...EVERYONE, EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE.
This is how the enlightened ones live
and this is the key to heaven on Earth.
Every day, every moment. LOVE. Nothing but Love.
No day on the calendar can ever tell me what to do.
We are free, and we can make Valentine's Day every day.
Breaking free...loving like everyday is V-day...pretty nice right?
Coconut oil massage!!!!
Oh right! I have finally started uploading videos again on youtube!
