Today is the day, to begin, writing, to introduce my thoughts, my feelings, inspirations, imaginations, and just simple everyday observations with all of you, so that we can begin to hold open that place and space, those living environments, those hearths of relationships and sanctuaries of living and lived wisdom, where conversations unfold, cups of tea are shared and friendships ignite.
Today is the day because there are questions hovering all around me, like twinkling stars. What does it mean to create a raw foods, living wisdom lifestyle? What is raw? What is living wisdom?
Ah…raw. To be raw, to me, is to be tender and vulnerable, clear and sturdy, uncluttered and simply natural. To be raw is to be unclothed of the superfluous, noticing things just as they are, in their natural states….be it fruit, or vegetables, human beings, or nature. To be living raw is to see the seed, the stem, the leaves, the flower and the fruit all at once, understanding it is part of a living cycle of time and growth, flourishing and transcending the physical to turn around and begin again, as a living seed, creating life…..inwardly and outwardly.
What is living wisdom? It is the stream of beauty that guides, quickens and awakens awareness and the seed of becoming fully human in the present moment. It is the essence within the flow of life that is always present in the growing tip and rootedness of being alive. A living wisdom whose grace and tenderness embraces us and allows us to learn how to facilitate, nurture and create a raw foods, living wisdom lifestyle.
Imagine two feet planted on the ground of this Earth, with arms raised high above one’s head outstretched receiving all this beauty, this warmth, this awareness inspiring us to enter in and take up a new choreography of creating. Imagine planting a living seed in the soils of this home called Earth and understanding how it grows unfettered by suppression and well-nourished by the substances of life, this living life.
Today, I begin tending the soil to plant. I begin holding open the space to share, to explore and to be together in the joy of raw and living wisdom in all its forms and flows, substances and essences, and in all its beauty and profundity. Thank you for joining me.
With so much gratitude….Jill LaBelle Sophie
