Realizing and Living My Utmost Potential 9: Health, Teaching and A Family of 4 Attending My Cooking Class

Living Principles:
 Links To Parts 1-8 of Realizing and Living My Utmost Potential

A family of 4 attended my cooking class last July 25. The Mom, the Dad and the two kids were present - one girl and 1 boy. The boy is 12 years old and the girl is 10 years old.

 The 12 yr old was the first to volunteer to do the cooking and then the 10 year old. I set it up in such a way that we'Il be selecting our own ingredients ourselves.
So, rather than me being the authority for all to look up to for information and knowledge regarding how to cook, how and what to cook, I gave everyone the authority to decide what ingredients to cook with. 

I see teaching as an equal and one opportunity to guide oneself, and so others, to train/walk the process to learn from ones own exploration of the physical such as within cooking - which is about exploring the physical act of cooking coming from a starting point of what is best for oneself in terms of individual nutrition to support the body optimally, and what is best for all - where animals and plants are not judged as good or bad, but rather, acknowledged for being here to support the body to survive through proper farming methods that will give them the care they need where they will also be able to express themselves.

Here's how I saw a cooking class before and I want to look at my mind pattern:
>I have to show everyone how good i am in cooking
>but someone might be better than me 
>ooops I better brush up on my cooking skills 

In this mind pattern i have an idea of what a cooking class should be. Then, i project my  compared myself with others in the class or  the iron chefs for example on tv, where I am impulsed by what i've seen in the media. I then judge myself as inferior and then compete with them in my mind - where the definition of the word 'cooking' itself was not seen, but was associated to a subjective interpretation of reality. Instead of forgiving myself for this, I believed that was a normal thing to do, not realizing this is consequential for the body as I manipulate my body to manifest my mind's desire rather than express myself as who I really am within what I do.

So here's my self- forgiveness for being directed by the mind:
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that i have to show everyone how good i cook believing what I saw in the media that good cooks become famous and is being paid more money. I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to judge myself as inferior then project the polarity opposite of that onto someone believing that - my interpretation was what it was in reality. I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to brush up on my cooking skills as a form of manipulation - manipulating the body to learn and enact what i desire.

Word Web
The act of preparing something (as food) by the application of heat
My Expanded Definition: Food as a substance that nourishes the body is being applied with heat or being prepared to make it easy to digest so nourishment can be distributed to the body.

During the beginning of the class, I asked everyone what is their definition of 'Health'. What I got was:
'Health is giving your body that which is good' 
 'Health is not giving your body that which will make it sick'
 'Health is giving the body something that supports a part of the body to function effectively'

In the Word Web, 'Health' is defined as 'absence of disease'. 
Do you wonder why we spend our lives resisting disease or fearing having a disease? Eventually, we get what we resist - because what we resist persist.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
My Expanded Definition:
body-mind-social alignment that leads to well-being as homeostasis within a balanced ecosystem of money without where all have basic necessities to survive,

HEAL T-hrough H-ealth
HE-al AL-l T-hrough H-omeostasis 'within and without' 
Note: a balanced ecosystem of money where all will be given the basic necessities to survive and that includes money to buy food.
