No matter what the past has generated in terms of emotions and memories: we are all called to create a new, different way of relating to nourishment and the social traditions that center around special occasions where food is shared. Does it have to be turkey this Thanksgiving? If you really love it, go for it! And if your heart beckons you to explore alternatives, maybe meatless, why not give it a try?! We are all called to examine the ways we have been doing things for so long, in order to create new traditions that may be more respectful of Mother Earth and her resources. In these times of immense change, maybe all we need is awareness that allows us to examine our unconscious ways of living, so we can evolve into a higher level of inter-dependence with all of live.
Above all, examine with compassion and gentle self-observation what *really* feeds you. Can you make more room for spiritual nourishment in your life?
