What does God, Mayo anf typos have in common? Well from my perspective they are all great examples of words that everyone has a different meaning of, or level of "charge"..
To me God is the eternal non dying mystery, the creative force in the universe the non duality from which duality comes. I find god in math, science, nature,every religious text and spiritual philosophy, and most importantly I find the creator in this daily sacredly mundane existence. The hug of my children, the shine in the eyes of those I love, the sweet thoughtfulness that make up the people I know.
When I say god,I'm not trying to convert you to my religion, I'm not excluding your god, I'm including it all, I'm including your god or non god "I only believe in Science" attitude that my lovely daughter has as well.
When I say god, I pray that you hear the highest good, the inspiration of love that resonates with you.
I appreciate you allowing me the freedom to love everyone's interpretation of god. That's why I write god as Ggod/desS because it is more than we are capable of knowing and nature shows us it takes two to tango aka the polarity that is in a cosmic song and dance of union.
And MAYO? WTF?!?
Yes folks mayo!
I've been vegan, raw vegan, paleo, sad, macrobiotic, Atkins, south beach, cabbage soup diet, rice crispy treats and diet coke even! But boy oh boy or Good Lord does it make me crazy when I read an online recipe and people put in the ingredients
*mayo or vegan equivalent.
Or whatever "mayo" that is acceptable to the particular food cult page I'm getting the recipe from.
Seriously people I live with a man who LOVES miracle whip!!!! (Withholding pukey face and gagging noises...barely)
If we can have peace in this house with miracle whip, veganaise, and best foods coexisting in harmony it is living proof we can have peace on earth!!!
In my recipes I post I'm just putting mayo! If you are anti mayo use mustard or go dry! Your grown, I'm sure you know what you like!
I trust you to figure it out ;)
ndA Typos? (hehe)
I'm so guilty of typos and misspellings! They are all over my website and I know it drives some people so crazy that they probably can't veen get through ym blog stops ;)
Ok I'll stop :-)
I'm sorry to those of us who get spastic over spelling mistakes and irate over improper punctuations!
I really am sorry!
I admit that when people type Ebonics I really wanna smack them (hey I'm not perfect I'm struggling for the appearance of sanity like the rest of us!). But once again if I can live with miracle whip in the house I can tolerate Ebonics fb updates and ims.... Tolerance is the first step to peace. (Deep breath)
So please when you see mispelled words, misplaced punctuation or the holy grail of English major mental torture.. there/ their etc...know that I am incredibly busy. I have 2 kids who are my top priority,my honey, my health, house, garden, and my Mission to embody peace in the midst of chaos, to model compassion, acceptance and tolerance, to imperfectly walk the path to peace even when it includes miracle whip and Ebonics. Know that I am always doing my very best and that this is a one woman show! A one woman show that is most often administered from my iPhone, a real show, a real person, with real imperfections; Non committal Ggod/desS loving, misspellings, miracle whip and Ebonics snubbin/ despising and apparently intolerant of intolerance ;-)
I am loving myself with my Perfect imperfections and I hope and pray I am inspiring you to liberate yourself from your societal and self imposed limitations. When we love and accept ourselves where we are, we instantly remove the obstacles to changing and growing (like looking at a plant realizing its Dry and needs water) we arent judging the plant for not growing we just look for the ways to assist in the processes of change :-) Everyday I am doing the little steps that lead to the big picture, I might trip, or step backwards or look funny doing it but I keep on moving and so should you!
So please please forgive me, celebrate my obvious imperfections, read your version of god and mayo and overlook my typos,or volunteer to fix Em if it bothers you that much ;)
With tolerance, evol and light,
Ps. if you want the recipe that inspired the whole blog and handle the typos drop a comment on this blog and ill post today's lunch "Curried sesame Tofu pate" I promise it has no Miracle whip in it
I am a passionate humanitarian on a quest to create a beautiful, peaceful life that is available to the whole world!
