Quotes ~ April 27th

Yoga essentially is a way of joyfully offering thanks, and of honouring the Divine in all of creation. The wisdom of the creators of yoga is simply and profoundly expressed in a timeless yogic text:"From Joy all beings have come.
In joy all beings are sustained.
To joy all beings return.
This is the highest teaching.
This is the highest teaching."~ Upanishads
(Heart Yoga: The Sacred Marriage of Yoga and Mysticism, page xvi)

"What if our religion was each other.
If our practice was our life.
If prayer, our words?
... What if the temple was the earth
If forests were our church
If holy water - the rivers, lakes and oceans.
What if meditation was our relationships
If the Teacher was life,
if wisdom was self-knowledge,
If love was the center of our being?"
~ Inspiration from Ganga White - Reab by Shiva Rea at her Earth Day class at the Tadasana Festival

Wake up! If you knew for certain you had a terminal illness—if you had little time left to live—you would waste precious little of it! Well, I’m telling you…you do have a terminal illness: It’s called birth. You don’t have more than a few years left. No one does! So be happy now, without reason—or you will never be at all.
~ Dan Millman, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Imagining something may be the first step in making it happen, but it takes the real time and real efforts of real people to learn things, make things, turn thoughts into deeds or visions into inventions.
~ Mister Rogers

We are not called to go where it is easy and love already exists. We are called to go where we are sent and bring love with us.

~ Max Ehrmann, The Desiderata

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
~ Nietzsche

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.‘ It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
~ Steve Jobs

Top 10 Foods for Better Sex

Top 10 Foods for Better Sex.

Sex needs blood. Food builds blood.
Food is primary. Sex is elementary.
Sex is ecstasy. Food is delight.
Food is contemplation. Sex is meditation.

1. Avocados. Give me anything avocado and I’ll turn it into bliss. To those who ditch avocados because they’re “too fatty”, let me tattoo this on your fridge door:

Not all fats are evil. What’s wrong with us is called “unhealthy fats” or “the lack of healthy fats”.

Avocados are packed with healthy, unsaturated fats that keep your arteries clean and your blood flowing to all the right places.

In fact, men suffering from underlying heart disease, are also likely to experience erectile dysfunction.

But hey, if you don’t believe me, take it from the Aztecs (some of the strongest, smartest and healthiest warriors in history), who referred to avocadoes as… testicles.

Another benefit you get from fatting up on avocadoes is a lot of Vitamin E, which (gently) invites your sex hormones to take over and stimulate your sexual response.

2. Leafy greens. Broccoli, arugula, Swiss chard, kale, Brussel Sprouts… They’re high in minerals (calcium and magnesium, impatient to be absorbed) and pretty much all the essential nutrients you can imagine. They purify your blood, and make it flow like it means it.

3. Bananas.  Let’s be adults here for a second. Bananas are the Kings of Potassium, a mineral necessary to build muscle strength—and muscles are… you know, those things that contract during an orgasm. So, if you say no to orgasm, you can still use you banana strength for other types of workouts.

4. Chocolate.  Skip the sugar and keep it dark (at least 70% cocoa) to experience its full power.

Chocolate contains a stimulant—phenylethilamine, if you’re fluent in science—that gives you a natural high and releases the same endorphins triggered by sex. It’s like opening a door to a sunny day and saying: Yes! I think I’m ready to go for a walk!

It also increases your overall sensitivity, making your skin fully receptive to the slightest touch.

5. Maca. Some call it the “Natural Viagra”. It’s one of the most powerful medicinal plants available. Originally from Peru, this magic root tops the list of the so-called superfoods.

It acts as a strong libido enhancer, helps regulate hormones both in men and women and improves overall sexual function, among other amazing properties. It usually comes in powder form and it tastes like a strange, moon-dust cookie dough. You can add it to smoothies, juices, desserts… or take it as a supplement.

6. Strawberries & other berries.  First of all, they are red and, according to recent experiments, red is subconsciously sexy (to most of us, consciously too). Secondly, they are high in folic acid, an essential B vitamin that prevents birth defects and keeps your arteries clean and clear.

They’re also high in antioxidants, which protect your blood from free radicals (chemical leakage interfering with your natural hormone production). But I’m sure that, based on deliciousness alone, you’re already converted to Berryism.

7. Citrus (oranges, kiwis, pomegranates) and Peaches.  Other than antioxidants and folic acid, they’re high in Vitamin C, a strong libido booster. Vitamin C increases sperm counts and keeps your stuff alive and moving.  (Via Nature’s Health Foods)

8. Celery.  According to Alan Hirsch, M.D., author of Scentsational Sex,

“When you chew a stalk of celery, you release androstenone and androstenol odor molecules into your mouth. They then travel up the back of your throat to your nose… Once there, the pheromones boost your arousal, turning you on and causing your body to send off scents and signals that make you more desirable…”

Other than this sexy-scent production, celery is a detox food with great cleansing properties. It’s also filled with trace minerals, it lowers blood pressure and it contains silicon, essential to bone strength. (Funny fact: bones are 23% sodium, just like celery.)

9. Oatmeal and other gut-friendly, whole grains (brown rice, barley, etc.).  Your gut is like your second heart in terms of body functions. What suits your gut, pretty much suits your heart and vice versa.

You know what else is also a mix of heart + guts + a little bit lot of brain? Yep, love.

More scientifically speaking, whole grains like oatmeal, increase your testosterone levels and they provide L-arginine, an amino acid that reduces stiffness in your blood vessels, frequently used to treat erectile dysfunction.

10. Almonds.  They’re rich in trace minerals, especially zinc, which is found to increase libido and sexual desire.


Every one of us is getting older, which is a natural process. Time is constantly moving on, second by second. Nothing can stop it, but what we can do is use our time properly; that is in our hands. Whether we believe in a spiritual tradition or not, we need to use our time meaningfully. If over days, weeks, months and years, we have used our time in a meaningful way – when our last day comes, we'll be happy, we'll have no regrets.

Dalai Lama

Quotes ~ April 17th

Love and grief are our oceans. They aren’t opposites. The grief is an ebb and flow that continues through our lives. It comes up, and if we dam that ocean off, we shut love out too. We need to go through it, all the f*cked up tears and anger—all of it—to get to the love. I had a few tears as I realized this, but left hopeful. I loved all of Seane’s stories about her dad and his illness and passing. It was beautiful to witness the other participants in their various stages of grief.

But this is is what I kept, and what left me full of hope, “Love is always where we end up.” We don’t wade through all the sh*t of anger, sadness and grief to just be empty. We get through it to allow the love in.

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche

There are cracks. There are cracks in everything. That’s how the light gets in.
~ Leonard Cohen

The closest thing we have to flawlessness is nature. The Grand Canyon, for example, is one of the most majestic creations in the world, and what is it? A giant crack.

People visit this giant crack every day from all over the world to marvel at this vast gaping hole in the Earth. It is possibly the greatest flawed perfection human eyes have ever witnessed. If the water and wind had never pulsed through the rock, we would not know it as the Grand Canyon. Without your cracks, you wouldn't be. The erosion of life lived etches uniqueness into our skin all the way through, to our hearts.

We would not be human; we would not know this existence without our wrinkles, lines, holes, cuts and scars. We would not know love without the punctures of resentment and hate. We would not know pure joy without the pit of sorrow. We would not appreciate health without the fractures of sickness.We would not know happiness without the searing slice of suffering.

We learn how to live within the cracks. The cracks are where we find ourselves. Our cracks absorb and radiate light. They are the peep hole to the inside, so we can see our spirit. Our cracks lead the way, guiding others to see in, to see us.

The light creeps in and we journey right back to where we start, exactly the same and completely different. Exactly the same, we are who we are, nothing changes. We are fated as we are, cracks and all. Completely different, because we understand that there is absolutely nothing to cover.

I sit here with the scars on my body, the laugh lines on my face, the breaks in my heart, the broken dishwasher at home, the crayon doodles on my couch, and the moth hole in my shirt. Today, I acknowledge I am perfectly cracked; I have nothing to cover anymore.
~ Rebecca Lammersen


Learn to love yourself enough so that when someone enters your life that treats you negatively, you can stand up for yourself and have the strength to let them go. You can learn that it is okay to say no to anyone who is not willing to treat you with the love and respect you not only want, but also deserve. Have the courage to walk away from anything that does not serve you well. Search for your highest good.

I am an Artist

I am inspired
By the artist
That lies
In all of us.
A sense of character.
The Soul that learns
From the past.
The Spirit
That anticipates the future.
The Body
That is alive with sensuality.
And the Heart
That knows no bounds.
That's why for me,
Expression lies in simplicity.
Why black
Forms the perfect canvas.
And a tactile caress
Has such sensual power.
Design must be flexible -
A chameleon,
An exploration.
Because modern souls
Don't stand still.
They keep moving forward,
Evolving, creating.
Inspired by life.

  • Heat a bit of oil in a large sauté pan set over medium-high heat and swirl to coat, or do it on a griddle pan. Add the patties to the pan so that they are not touching. Let cook about 4 minutes or until the first side is lightly browned. Carefully flip the patties with a spatula and let the second side cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining patties, using additional olive oil if needed
  • Serve on a lush bed of spinach greens and top with olive oil and balsamic vinegar!
  • You can also serve these with a lovely poached egg on top.......MMMM

  • Add the broccoli, carrots, and red bell pepper and stir frequently. Sauté until the veggies have turned a more vibrant color and have softened a bit (approx. 5 minutes), then add the quinoa and stir well
  • Sauté just until the quinoa has heated through and then remove the pan from the heat. Add the green onion, soy sauce, and optional sesame seeds to the pan and stir well.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • This dish made for a nice, warm dinner.  Leftovers the next day by making veggie wraps for lunch Romaine lettuce (large romaine lettuce, collard greens, butter lettuce leaves, or nori wraps)
Quinoa Sushi Wraps

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 Tbs. brown rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. filtered water

  • In a bowl, combine the brown rice vinegar, water, and sea salt. Add the quinoa and stir until the quinoa is completely coated with the liquid
  • Lay a nori sheet shiny-side down on a flat surface (or, better yet, on a rolling sheet). Spread the quinoa in a thin layer across 2/3 of the nori sheet closest to you (leaving a strip of nori on the end furthest from you)
  • Lay the lettuce flat on top of the quinoa and top with a horizontal strip of veggies down the center of the lettuce. Feel free to add whatever ingredients you like at this point (be sure not to overfill the wrap)
  • This is when a rolling sheet comes in handy: Gently lift the edge of the wrap closest to you and begin to turn inward and tightly roll toward the opposite end. To seal the wrap, moisten the opposite end and press tightly
  • Using a very sharp knife, slice the roll in half (to make larger wraps like in the picture above) or into smaller, individual pieces (like traditional sushi)
  • Repeat with the second nori wrap and veggies. Serve with dipping sauce (Tamari is yummy)
