more hugs in 2009

The YouTube video posted below is one of my favorite ever. The first time I saw it must have been about two years ago and I just have to watch it again now and then. And every time it brings tears to my eyes and a big smile on my face… Hope you enjoy it too. And if you have seen it before, I am sure you wouldn’t mind seeing it again : )
This is my way to give you a hug and say thank you. Thank you to all of you who have taught me so much this last year, thank you for all your inspiring blogs, and thanks to everyone who has supported me on my (raw food) journey.

May the new year hold many, many blessings for you.

With a warm (free) hug,

love is indiscriminate


In this wonderful video (which is an excerpt of the complete interview mentioned at the end of this post) spiritual teacher Adyashanti speaks about love and the way to turn issues around by seeing them from a perspective of love.
Such a beautiful reminder that it would be so good for us to focus on what we would like to see, would like to happen, what we wish for. This instead of ‘fighting’ what we are against and thus focusing on the ‘negative’ thoughts, on what we DO NOT want to happen.

You can watch the complete interview with Adyashanti here.

With thoughts of love,

let’s bring our own bag… for real!

If you have some time, please watch this video called ‘Sea of Shame’ on ’60 minutes’. It is just too sad… and sadly enough reality. Much damage has been done to our planet already, but if we make some changes in our day to day life (reduce our garbage pile by reusing the plastic bags we have, use glass for storage, bring our own bag, get a water filter instead of buying water in plastic bottles etc.) we might be able to make a difference. I know it’s not always easy to make changes, but our planet and every creature living on it will be so grateful…

thank you!

give thanks to the turkeys…


Thanksgiving always makes me a little sad when I think about the mass amount of turkeys being eaten on that day. Turkeys are cute and beautiful and deserve to be treated with respect as all animals deserve to. Please click here to see a great video on about Giving Thanks to turkeys : )

Much love and Giving Thanks!
