What are you grateful for today?
I am thankful for my family, my amazingly supportive tribe, new friends I've made this year, making it to the second round of interviews at work for a position I've wanted. Thankful for the opportunity to have such great leadership at my job with a boss that has integrity. Thankful to be alive and feel God's gifts with the senses I've been provided. I am blessed to love and be loved in return. Thank you Lord and thank you Cosmos.

We ordered two weeks worth of Whole Food Plant Based Meals and sauces from Mamasezz last week. Most of the food has either no or minimal SOS free (no salt, no oil, no sugar). We noticed a marked difference. We felt fuller without needing to eat so much due to increased fiber intake. We're still working out the kinks to determine what we like.

We did have a cheat day last Saturday where we had cheeseburgers, fries and a shake. It was such a shock to us. The food was so incredibly salty, fatty and so chemically sweet that we were taken aback. The curious thing to us however was that tastebuds normalized the food that we ate and the next day we got pizza which was followed by heartburn, headaches and a lot of sleeping. With that said, we decided to double down from our weekend cheat days (since we extended it to the day after) and go back to a plant based WOE (way of eating) this week. Our normal routine is green juices (different kinds of greens, bananas, another fruit or two, flax seed, seaweed, minerals, green powder, filtered water, and anti-inflammatory juice such as tart cherry if we have it) in the morning. We have a lot more freedom for lunch and dinner and it varies because my partner and I like different things. I normally will have cooked starch like curried potatoes with mushrooms, mixed brown and black rice or quinoa, with a stack of varying greens on top, sprinkled with cashews and cranberries whereas he may have fruits, nuts and granola.

Since we’re just starting out, it’s hard to be consistent. I love it when I find stories about people getting better physically and mentally with this WOE. Sharing!

I do an intensive bible study once a week for an hour or two, sometimes three, every Monday. On top of that, I have started reading the New Testament and it's going fairly slow since I look up the significance per verse. There is context to consider in regards to the time it was written and the culture in which it was written from. Under my father’s guidance, I read the entire Old Testament when I was younger and have decided to read it again after I finish the New Testament.
There’s been a lot of spiritual reflection as I am coming to terms with what these books are trying to tell me and what I can learn from them. There are a lot of antiquated ideas that I don’t agree with such as women being second class citizens, moved and bought as commodities. There’s a strict patriarchal hierarchy that’s adhered to, verses and chapters touching on whom we have to obey and why.
In all the years of going to religious schools and going to church or immersing myself in religious activities, I have realized that for me God is synonymous with the Cosmos and Nature. Spiritual pomp and circumstance is beautiful to look at and participate in but it does not feed my spirit and my soul. A marble idol of a saint does not bring me the kind of spiritual joy that being in a forest does, where it affords me to enjoy the complicated and magnificent life that nature had to offer. The closest I’ve been with the Creator is when I connect to people in understanding and joy and they in turn connect to me in the same way, exponentially so when it’s done at the same time with the same deep understanding. We are the godhead. We are the deity that we worship. We relate and understand that power and enlightenment because we have that inside of us.
Just as a seed becomes a mighty oak, we too will grow. The caveat is just like the seed that needs water and sun, we too need more of the same kind of nurture. Just as there are extensive roots systems for a lot of plants, we need the same extensive support system from others. We are a part of the natural order and that means the great gift of life, the godhead, the energy that powers everything, runs through us and is us.
With that said, since I afford myself the freedom to fluidly change such fundamental belief systems, I then afford everyone else to do so, which means if we enable prayers in places such as schools, I will look at the window and be grateful to my powers that be and appreciate the teeming life that surrounds me. Everyone should be able to connect to their own God and do the same, whether it’s the Universe and the Cosmos, or Muhammad or Jesus or God the Father, Yahweh or whomever touches their heart and give their life meaning.
