Every culture seems to have a story about how human life began on Earth. Most describe a story where humans showed up here living in paradise.
Everything was perfect for long ages of time, until something happened. Some consider that "something" to be the flood, or to be "the knowledge of good and evil," or a shift in the ages, etc. What was it? Why is it that humans live life on Earth so differently from the other creatures here?
Raw-food eaters such as myself believe (actually know) we have found the answer. The great change came over the life of humans on this planet when we discovered fire and began experimenting with cooking our food. Let's use our best sense: no other creature on the planet cooks or tampers with its food in any way. Here is an experiment: Let's feed a tribe of gorillas coffee and donuts for a few generations and let's see what happens! Because cooked food is part and parcel to civilization we have been trained never to question it.
What constitutes the basis of human nourishment? Is it pills and supplements coming out of the roaring jaws of factories? Is it the flesh of animals being churned out by factory farms? Is it the milk of cows which was intended for baby calves? Is it cooked and processed food?
The basis of human nourishment is obvious: it is RAW PLANT FOOD which is presented to us in abundance in nature. All this talk about this diet or that diet or "natural" this or "natural" that is all nonsensical. There is only one normal diet: a raw-food based diet.
Going raw recreates you in your original form. Eating raw transforms you back into an intuitive natural creature < it returns to you lost animal powers. Eating raw plant food radically naturalizes you and puts one back in touch with the material and spiritual flow of nature. Because of this effect, eating raw grounds you in the natural world and also provides you with more awareness of the spiritual world which is really also part of the natural world.
You are a work of art in progress. Each meal is a cloud or a tree or a flower a piece of the painting that you are becoming. Every bite of food you put in your body should be adding to your perfection, to your beauty.
You are what you eat is a cosmic law. It is known in every culture and throughout every civilization throughout history. Every person knows that saying. Give your body the highest quality food possible. Eat organic and homegrown food.
I have made my life's work a study on how to help people succeed and prosper with the raw-food lifestlye in spite of the monotonous routine world's peer pressure. The best way to succeed in any area is to educate yourself. I hope you will take a moment to enjoy and absorb the information in my books: The Sunfood Diet Success System and Nature's First Law: The Raw-Food Diet.
