View Full Version : Transcendance

With raw I have transcended above the muck that was cooked SAD. I have transcended above all things petty and negative, I am simply above it all. It is wonderful. I am still perfectly balanced in the right areas and I will always be an earthbound creature. A child of nature, if you will, but in that heaviness, I've still risen above the junk that I don't need in my life. I feel that raw is a HUGE part of that. I have never been able to be so free and spiritually aware, both in an out of my self. New levels have been reached and yet, I remain blissfully dug in the earth, like a great tree soaking up the lifeforce from the vegetation and the waters. I can't even think of not being raw, nothing else exists to me.
Om shanti. :)

Wonderful post, lissomllama. The spiritual aspect of being raw is my #1 reason for never going back, by far. It's magical how clearly one can see things when they leave out all that processed junk and chemicals...purity of spirit.
What a great post!!!
For me as well, my move to RAW has in many ways coincided with a spiritual awakening and an exploration of Eastern philosophies such as Yoga and Buddhism. They go hand in hand.
One of the key principles of Yoga is AHIMSA which means non-harming. For me raw vegan is the ultimate in non-harming, b/c I am not only not harming other being in my consumption habits...I am also non-harming myself.
When I am challenged to stay raw vegan I remind myself of another yogic principle: TAPAS which means self discipline.
Thank you for this wonderful post.

It's so funny, I just posted a similiar thought in the personal growth section. It is AMAZING to me how much more connected to my spirituality I feel every day now. I used to have only fleeting, vague feelings of "something" and now I feel constantly connected "tuned in" to Source/Spirit/God/dess/Universe. I feel many moments of absolute joy and am content and secure the vast majority of time. I have an ushakable faith that everything will be all right, no matter what happens. I would also remain raw only to retain this feeling. It is freeing and beautiful and magical! :-)
