Day 25 ”One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung I recently read a book about a near death experience where although the woman was unconscious, she was able to perceive everything that was happening in the room where her body lay. Her family made a decision to stay positive and keep hope alive, evenContinue reading “iDifference”

A Thousand Words: Not Enough

Day 24 “Whenever nature seemingly wreaks havoc, she leaves us with a gift of immeasurable beauty and joy. Each season has its own wonder, its own special place, and its own purpose in the pattern of creation. Together they create balance & perfect harmony.” – Rajni Kurichh Today’s post is dedicated to showcasing the positive side of the storm.Continue reading “A Thousand Words: Not Enough”

Don’t Stop Believin’

Day 23 It’s amazing how the mind works. We have the ability to travel through time and space with our imaginations. We can visit fantasy worlds that we’ve only dreamt of, ones that we’ve never even witnessed. We can also travel back in time to savor old memories, and feel exactly how it feels to be in thatContinue reading “Don’t Stop Believin’”

Snowflakes & Hot Chocolate

Day 22 Unlike most people, I actually come alive in colder weather and have more energy to be out and about as the temperature drops. I figured this out when I moved back east from California, where I had moved with brandish delight that I would no longer have to bear the bone-chilling-freeze-your-butt-off cold Canadian wintersContinue reading “Snowflakes & Hot Chocolate”

All The World’s A Stage

Day 21 “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts.” – Shakespeare, As You Like It Hoʻoponopono. That was the thought that popped into my head before I fell asleep last night. Ho what now? Hoʻoponopono. It’s anContinue reading “All The World’s A Stage”

Newspapers, Rockstars & Ordinary People

Day 20 “The soul never takes birth and never dies, nor having once been, does it ever cease to be. The soul is birthless, eternal, imperishable and timeless, and is never destroyed when the body is destroyed.” – Lord Krishna, Bhagavad Gita When I moved to California many years ago, a hummingbird started showing up on my balcony,Continue reading “Newspapers, Rockstars & Ordinary People”

For The Love Of Goats

Day 19 I flipped the vegan switch on January 1st. It’s veganuary, so it’s a good time to go vegan. For the last year I have barely eaten any meat, so a few months ago, I decided to become vegetarian. That wasn’t so difficult. I miss the occasional juicy steak, but I can live without it.Continue reading “For The Love Of Goats”

Mix Lettuce & Kale

Day 18 When I came up with Kurilane on Day 3 of this journey, one of the first ideas that came to my mind was a road motif. I thought of making the menu items a play on road themes – my food posts would be “feed street”. On Saturday, I thought it would be fitting to title today’sContinue reading “Mix Lettuce & Kale”

Ostrich Effect

Day 17 “For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” – Cynthia Occelli I got upset with my mom last night. I know. Not positive. I started today’sContinue reading “Ostrich Effect”

Roses are Red

Day 16 “The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.” – Earl Nightingale For the last few days, I’ve been setting up my new room, and it’s quite cozy now, Even Ippa seems to like ourContinue reading “Roses are Red”
