It's been a while since I've checked into my kitchen @ The Writers Cafe not for lack of anything to cook but out of sheer desperation for a new recipe with the outcome of a new experience.
For the past year I have been exploring the benefits of Yoga in my life...not the yoga that I see on every corner of America for exercise but the original experience of learning and practicing with a living Master. I have had that experience with partaking in the programs directed by a Living Master from India. The programs were directed by Sadhguru at the ashram in Tennessee and I experienced what I hoped for;an experience of a live transmission from a living Master. I have always wanted to just be in the Presence of a Living Master to experience what I have only imagined in my lifetime about spiritual practice;authenticity and realness about purpose in living.
This past year has caused me to question everything and it's purpose in my life. Several of the recipes in my kitchen for comfort are changing to a more natural approach.This part of my journey has been approaching me for a long time and now I understand what Sadhguru was talking about when he said that our Guru will find us simply by our desires rather than the other way around.
I am looking forward to the unfolding of my true talents that have laid latent within me for a lifetime.It is through the slow cooking processes of the great southern women I have known that I understand this part of my spiritual journey. I feel that the consistant practices that I have been given by my teacher, along with sincere purpose, will provide for me the most wonderful flavors just like what I have witnessed through my observations in my life with Master Chefs of the South. There are great mysteries to purposeful living and to recognize the purpose of the right specific mixture of ingredients toward a pleasurable experience is required for success. In sharing my recipes of life, I hope that others will do the same that we all may open to great possibilites.
The world we exist in today is calling all of us to give the most we can give to open the possibilities available to humanity. The giving of ourselves...our hearts and openness towards peace begins with the peace within ourselves to attain the peace we all desire outwardly. I hope all of you reach out in every possible way to find that peace for the sake of all humanity...I wish peace for you in your kitchens and ask that you share your recipes and ask the question..."What Now?"
