I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that removing milk and honey in my diet will impact the body as per how or where it will get nutrients when they are needed from these sources. 

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that if i have heart operation, i will suffer and die,  projecting it into the future & me reacting in fear - not realizing that this is a belief that I am reacting to in my mind when the heart is a physical organ that can be nourished, so when & as i see myself having this belief & reacting in fear, I stop - I breathe. I realize I am here physically so i live as who i am

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that i I am here - in the physical universe so I cannot evolve from a sentient vegetarian to a cooked vegan to a raw vegan  in my mind, as this is fuzzy logic 

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that eating is not about food being used to please me. It is about seeing food as part of the whole - that is life.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself  to not realize that videos are tools we can use - to showcase our journey in how we express ourselves to our utmost potential, so i commit to use it as such

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that happiness is about expressing to our utmost potential - where all benefits

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to  not realize that diseases are here to get our attention - so I commit to use them to pin point areas that need attention  

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that I can make raw & vegan dishes that align to our body design

I commit myself to create dishes that align to my body design

VEGAN My Business Story

Did I give Cooking Classes When I was Vegan?

My vegan story included giving cooking classes both for cooked vegans, raw vegans and non-vegans. I separated the classes otherwise there will be diet war in the kitchen knowing that there were different people attending following different diet paths. The ones who were not following a restrictive diet were the ones open to see new ways of food preparation and taste possibilities.  They were the ones who also engaged in some interesting conversations with me.

I was living then in Dallas, Texas. I created some raw food for a client and i ate the left over of whatever i created with my husband. I worked so much to create the recipes i wanted to create which was mostly about pleasing the taste buds of my client. I need to test the taste of the vegan food i created myself to make sure this will pass the criteria of my client, so I questioned my business logic.

Another aspect of creating food for my client was about getting raw ingredients which i mostly get from Wholefoods. This became so expensive for me that i just broke even. 

The amount of time used for shopping the food items I used to prepare, the amount of money spent (as capital) plus the amount of energy used to prepare raw vegan food for our client was something that does not add up to profit. The food delivery also needed manual labor, so me and my husband did the job. I knew this was not profitable. So I stopped when i felt some back pain while preparing food in the kitchen. 

I will not put my body in danger while doing business. That i know.

The laws governing business registration was something i also looked at. I needed to have the capital to be able to restart the business which i did not have that time. One of the requirements was that I had to be a member of an association which costed more than $200 a year.  This needs to be renewed annually. This was just one of the many things we needed to finance. The situation was not conducive to continuing the business , so i told my husband my decision to stop the business. He agreed.

When i moved to Los Angeles, there were requests from other people who tasted the food i used to create - for me to create some vegan food for them but that did not prove profitable. I noticed that other raw vegan restaurants in Los Angeles and in Dallas also closed down. 

The business models that exist needs to be redefined.

VEGAN My Story

What did i eat when I was cooked vegan?

I asked the organic store to deliver a box of organic fruits and vegetables every week so that I can prepare organic meals and eat only vegetables and fruits. The only food items i removed from my diet (as sentient vegetarian for 29 years) was milk and honey. 

There is this silent fear lurking in my mind (everyone's mind) of having a heart operation. One weekend, i was invited to a vegan event where they showed us a film of a doctor operating on a patient. In that film, the arteries were clogged with solidified fat. I did not think fat can really be solid inside the artery like that - so that magnified my fear of disease. I reasoned that for me to get to a point where i will not have the same condition, I need to get my health to another level and being a cooked vegan could lead me to that level of health. So, after that day, i decided to be vegan. I had the idea that i will have better chances of not getting heart disease by being vegan. 

Me being a cooked vegan lasted for just a short time. I was in Australia then and when I was invited by my mom to the US for a vacation, I had a chance to see people who are raw vegan. 

I went to a raw vegan restaurant and ate their version of ice cream and brownie. The ice cream was made from raw cashews and agave nectar plus irish moss. The brownies were  made from walnuts, dates and cacao powder. That was really tasty. So, i decided to be raw vegan. I reasoned that I will be able to eat the same foods I eat and taste tasty meals except milk & honey so I can do this diet.

I watched the youtube videos of raw vegans daily. I saw them as healthy and happy individuals based from my mind perception of what a happy and healthy individual looks like. This is an inaccurate assessment though as this is subjective from person to person.

What is real happiness?
Real happiness is about expressing to our utmost potential and enjoying ones expression - as who one really is, as part of the whole - that is life - where all benefits. 

What is health?
Real health is not about absence of disease within fear of disease, where we are imposing on the body rather than working with the body - realizing that we are the breath in the body. 

It includes working with the disease to learn more about ones body and mind - to expand ones expression, which can open doors  for oneself and for those walking their own health journey which includes the physical, mental and social aspects - where all benefits.

What did I eat when i was raw vegan?
I ate raw dehydrated crackers with fresh vegetables & fruits dressed with a raw dressing, kelp noodles with raw vegetables dressed with fresh fruit juices and agave nectar. I dehydrated the crackers myself and prepared the raw vegan meals.

I learned recipes mostly from watching youtube videos of raw vegans. I found the raw vegan dishes I made and ate, tasty and easy to prepare. 

I made my own menu of raw vegan dishes that I made available to a handful of people who ordered them and even gave raw vegan cooking classes.

The Word

VE-getable G-(AN)un

A person who eats vegetables and does not eat animal meat or meat products like milk, eggs etc., as per ones body design and/or physical need



Sentient Vegetarian SF


I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that the guru is a person who is a part of the whole - that is life, equal to who I am, who is also a part of the whole -that is life.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself  to not realize that what the guru said about what what we should eat is his philosophy and not me walking with my body as an equal and seeing what is commonsensical in terms of what i should eat based on my body design and what the body physically needs

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that for 29 years I had been imposing on my body - in terms of what to eat based on a belief and is therefore responsible for the consequence that resulted from that

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to give up on myself in favor of what the guru says - as i saw him as superior and me as inferior 

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that my the way i eat is the way my mother eats and that it is my responsibility to teach myself what to eat based on my body design considering my relationship with food, the microbes in my gut etc.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to judge the guru as superior and judge myself as inferior -  relingishing all responsibility to the guru, rather than giving myself that which I  am able to give to myself - having walked back and seen the problem, correcting this for myself and others 

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that food items are physically here as plants and animals assisting us as equals - as equally aware beings

When and as I see myself judging people, food items etc., I stop - i breathe. I realize they are here as my equals sharing this one life with me 

I commit myself to change the way i see food and my way of eating to give to myself that which i took away from myself - that it will benefit all life



Sentient Vegetarian My Story

What was I eating  in a sentient vegetarian diet (for 29 years)?

I was eating vegetables except onions, garlic and mushrooms. This I did based on the guru's philosophy below:

Positive Energy Foods 
Beneficial to both the body and mind
fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, milk products, nuts, herbs & mild spices

Neutral Energy Foods
Beneficial to the body but may or may not be beneficial to the mind
coffee, tea, chocolate, carbonated drinks & strong spices

Negative Energy Foods
Makes the mind dull and drowsy
meat, fish, eggs, onions, mushrooms, garlic & rotten or spoiled foods

I believed that the guru knows what is good for my body - which was not really based on commonsense. I can get to know my body & its relationship to the food i eat, but i gave up on myself during that time. I did not know that there will be a consequence for this & that I will come back to this one day and correct this mistake (this is the reason for making this blog).

At that time, I saw the guru as an incarnated god on earth, who knows more than me. I did not see him as an equal based on who we really are, being parts of the whole - that is life. Since i saw him as superior than me, i made it my goal to follow what he was saying without questioning his words - where surrendering my commonsense was seen as 'right' even if it was me putting myself down (making myself inferior to him) - which was really not best for me to do. This is in essence abusing myself.

I believed what he said when he said that - if we eat vegetables, fruits, milk products etc. and perform practices which he wanted us to do, the cells of the human body will be able to perceive and experience the oneness in everything which will emanate as an effulgence from the cells creating this aura around our physical body (the body of spiritual aspirants) which was believed to be - how the body of highly evolved people look like.

This was not really based on commonsense since each of us -as all bodies have equal value, as we are parts of the whole - that is life. The uniqueness based on the effulgence of the body based on eating food items that he was endorsing (not tested) contradict the principle of oneness and equality. This is not based on commonsense.

There was also a belief that those who wanted to succeed in meditation and yoga will get great benefits from eating vegetables, fruits, grains, milk etc. & avoiding meat, fish, eggs etc. Eating vegetables, fruits, grains etc. was believed to be important to those who wish to perform yoga postures daily.

Food is physical. Meditation is based on sense withdrawal from the physical to a space in the mind creating an alternate reality while yoga postures stretch the limbs. This was my belief and i realized now that this is not based on commonsense. 

In 2007, I stopped doing yoga and meditation and stopped having a guru. This said, i stopped following the sentient vegetarian way of eating on that same year. This helped me in releasing the beliefs and in giving back to myself that which i took away from myself -paving the way to open the door to my utmost potential.
