I do not eat a lot of Tofu - mostly natural products.
But sometimes Tofu - and other "reconsituted" products make a change, especially since my two - non-Vegan - sons prefer it since they are not eating meat. My youngest, Vegan, son is like me - it makes no difference what the "texture" is.
I do eat a lot of curry - Indian and Thai - the hotter and spicier the better - usually with rice - because not having a sense of taste - or smell - I can appreciate it. I can sense spicy foods, salty, sweet, bitter etc - but that is about it.
That said - I never eat for enjoyment - only nutrition - but we are a family of four so we generally find a "happy medium"
In Love, Light and Service,
Reading your post Adrian it dawns on me to be even more so grateful for the senses we have and enjoy.
I am in my second week of weaning from coffee and I am doing pretty good with occasional migraine flares and so on. It amazes me how much in this fast paced world we resort to additives to 'fool' the body messaging for time-outs and rest in order so we can perform better.
Interesting when I write to you Adrian, when I connect my body enters in typical spontaneous healing Kryias (small involuntary movements that arise when boy enters in deep awareness) .... time for sleep soon these past years my typical sleep times were 1...2 ..3 am could never get things done before that.
My Dear Laura,
Ahhh... coffee....interesting substance
I typically drink two mugs per day of Espresso - in the morning - and that is it.
I have an Espresso machine - which grinds the beans as well - and after trying many different beans have settles on Starbucks "Fair Trade" Dark Espresso beans.
I think coffee is fine - in moderation
As for the senses - it is a big Life Challenge for me.
I used to enjoy smelling the "simple" things in Life, such as Hyacinth's when they bloom, freshly cut grass and of course Rose's
These are just but a treasured memory now. My sinus's and other "nasal structures" have been destroyed due to the severe allergies I experience - my lungs are not in a good state either - but I have no regrets. These are but physical senses.
Instead I am Grateful for what I Have.
I had my eyes tested recently - my first ever eye test in 56 years - and my vision is better than 20:20 - so there is something to be Grateful for
My hearing is basically fine, but when my allergies are particularly pervasive, my ears fill with fluid as well as my eyes, nose and lungs - but nothing that bothers me at all.
Physically, aside from the allergy related issues, I am in Perfect Health - again for which I am Most Grateful. I never become "ill as such" - never get "colds or 'flu".
It is not the details of the health Experience that matters, it is our attitude to that Experience and how we react to it Mentally and Spiritually.
My Dear Late Father was/is a massive inspiration on these matters.
I am most happy to hear of my "healing influence". I wish I could Heal The World.
With Lots Of Love and Joy,
