You are HOW You Eat – Be Like Fruit!

When you eat fruit you become sweet.

You become light and juicy, full of life and lusciousness. You have a natural compassion. The more fruit you eat, the more ripe YOU become. You ripen into who you really are.

Raw food takes all your bullshit away. It strips you of your angst.  It might put you into turmoil at first; it forces you to face your crap, it makes you deal with all the nasty junk, it makes you say “fuck no, I don’t want this in my life.” It brings you joy and REALNESS. You cannot be fake on a diet of fruit, it is impossible.

When you eat fruit you want to spread seeds – you can do this by just BEING.

You can just sit there and glow and people will look at you with wonder and want to know what you’re doing, and then you can tell them your “secret.” You can plant that seed in them. Even if they don’t understand at first, or if they don’t follow your example, at least they KNOW – they may remember in the future, when they are ready – that fruity seed is there, ready to grow.

Most people feel like crap all the time, and it’s because they eat crap. If you want to feel like a dry, brown potato, by all means, eat chips. If you want to feel like an angry, paranoid, selfish, fearful person, by all means, eat the flesh of a terrified animal. If you want to feel fat, gooey, heavy, and nauseous, by all means, eat all that cake!

But it’s not going to do anything for you. And it’s not going to do anything to help the world, or inspire your friends, or invoke health, or spark the mad fire inside you, which can be repressed and doused by all the crap you’re pouring on top of it. Let it OUT. Let your issues surface and deal with them so you can LIVE. It’s scary, but NOT LIVING YOUR LIFE is more terrifying – isn’t it?

  1. I love this! I feel so at peace with myself and the world when I eat mostly fruit ♥ I love nothing more than going round the store with a cart full of bananas and seeing the looks on people’s faces when they look at it hehe, and I love it even more when people ask me what on earth I am going to do with all my fruit! I love your blog, I am a new follower but I am already so inspired by you 🙂 Have a great day!

    • At peace with the world? Really? Have you ever investigated where, how and what had to be done to get that bunch of fruit to your store shelf? I’d do some research before you feel righteous.

      • Actually yes, I have, and I generally buy local fruit, especially in summer, and if I do buy fruit from overseas I buy organic and fair trade. It is still a better option than the cruel and much more environmentally unfriendly practice of animal agriculture. You are mirroring right now – sounds like you feel righteous by telling me to “do research” – I research everything. Have an awesome day!
