Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life is but a dream…
Remember that old nursery rhyme? I believe it’s actually a Zen Kōan… designed to impart great wisdom to the one who meditates on its hidden meanings.
A Brand New Shiny Domain
For the past several weeks I’d been working on a brand new domain and website… tweaking, coding, re-writing, re-working. So, why would I do that, when I already have this site?
Well, uh… shucks, golly, gee willuckers, Jimenee Christmas, I don’t know… :o)
Enthusiasm? Devotion? A sudden spur-of-the-moment spark of creativity?
I guess my passion for the raw foods lifestyle (as I prefer to call it now, instead of a diet) prompted me to take my raw journey to a new level in 2009.
A New Zen Garden
And thus raw2zen.com is born, out of the dust and distant memories of a cooked vegan life… a once junk food junkie… someone who, at one time, weighed almost 230 lbs and loved eating tons of unhealthy food and not caring about the consequences.
Was this new site necessary to reinforce my devotion to eating raw foods?
Was it the need to share my own experiences on a site specifically devoted to the raw foods lifestyle?
I THINK that’s it! And we ARE what we THINK, right?
Sharing the joys and benefits of living a raw foods lifestyle, all within it’s own domain and site. But sharing it with a more zen-like approach and attitude…
And Thus, A New Site Is Born
So, I sincerely hope this is a good idea. I hope I’m not just wasting my time. I know there are a whole bunch of wonderful sites out there, already promoting this type of path, this way of life.
In the end, life is a journey. But life is also inspiration, devotion and dedication to the things we love the most.
I welcome all of you to my new journey. It is never an end, but only a new beginning.
And Happy New Year To All Of You!
May your lives be filled with HAPPINESS and PROSPERITY in 2009. Be at peace to love and serve those you care about most deeply…
Peace, Love and Joy in 2009…
