DON'T buy into the promise of hagen-daz happiness! the combination of dairy, sweet, and cold predisposes the body to conditions of damp overgrowth, itself a precursor for cancers, calcifications, derangement of informational substances in the blood, general inflammatory response and hypotonicity of organs.
DO look upon sensual experience (tactiles, visuals, sounds, smells, tastes, kinestheticas, contemplative presence, biophotonics and the emotions), as first and foremost a thing vital and necessary for health and wholeness. without sufficient feeding and inputs, the animal body withers. this in turn creates compensatory distortions at the level of psyche and habits. we make poor judgements and tend to act in our own counter-interests when our capacity for and experience with sensual pleasure is lacking or unchallenged in its neurotic affects.
the ultimate goal is to first accord oneself the right to a liberated body, radically self-accepted, radically cherished and radically honoured; to take perceptions and actions out of the work camp of dreary programmed gestures, constrained body language, and retro roleplay assignments, move beyond the thin surface of the skin, beyond inherited inter-personal models of a bygone era, and beyond the low dome of coarsest (if not completely diminished) senses in order to begin again in innocence. new citizens can move into the deeper and more specialized gradations where ecstasy and spirit and stuff merge into revelations of a fundamental nature. we are here amid the bounty of mortal existence with our knowledge and our questions, with new tools, smarter strategies and more enlivened modes of being that stand ready to serve us.
DO buy fullfat organic coconut milk, pour it into a squat glass container and add a microdash of stevia powder, or a tablespoon of coconut sugar. add essence of vanilla or rose. whisk gently, seal and keep in the coldest part of the fridge. it will thicken slightly overnight, almost to the consistency of a clotted cream. when a craving for creamy sweet cold strikes, pause over a few tablespoons straight out of the jar or stripe over some fresh fruit. coconut milk is rich in vitamins and minerals (especially potassium, calcium, and chloride), is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal, and a rich source of short- and medium-chained fatty acids that are quickly converted to energy, not fat.
