one can nutrify the body, but not know how to nourish the mind
or, nourish the mind only, and neglect the body
both are essential and will help towards a fulfilling life
find the balance - its free
maintaining that might cost a little, but worth a lot in time
nutritious foods are not those that sit on glitzy display stands in the supermarkets shouting 'organic' 'free range' and what not
they are found in discarded bones in butcher shops
and within these humble rejects lie marrow... even a bit of it each week works wonders
most butchers give them away freely
or some would ask for a token sum
a few cents maybe
just some large knuckle bones, ball joints, femurs
a few of these, boiled for 4 to 6 hours, with some carrots
onions, sweet potatoes, or add parsnips, turnips and sweetcorn
eat with rice... and a bit of kimchi (pickled cabbage, great for metabolism)
personally, i like to add a few drops of soya sauce onto the meltingly soft meat
round it off with a cup or two of sencha or green tea
then sink into a feeling of deep satisfaction
the kind that no amount of money in the world can buy...
Om svabhava shuddha sarva dharma svabhava shuddho 'ham!
Om shunyata jnana vajra svabhava atmako 'ham!
Om ah hum hra phat!
Om muni muni mahamuni Shakyamuniye svaha!
Appearances are mind, mind is emptiness, emptiness is spontaneous presence, spontaneous presence is self-liberation.
The objects perceived by sentient beings
are like the appearance of illusions;
Sentient beings themselves are in the nature of illusion
they all arise through dependent origination. - Nagarjuna
