View Full Version : Letting Go Of Seeking...

Amazing video IMHO! This is exactly what I was talking about when I posted a question last week regarding dealing with the mental issues that come with incorporating these lifestyle changes.
My post didn't get many responses...as usual! So maybe I'm one of the few that is dealing with these things.
Anyway, I hope that many will benefit from this video the same way that I have! Cheers!

Beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing.
This really touched me at this particular moment in my life as I am leaving for China in a few hours and I will not be able to eat 100% raw in China. I'm going to try to be very present and fully enjoy the opportunity to experience another culture, come what may.

I'm so glad that you got something wonderful from this. Enjoy your trip and live it to the fullest! We'll miss your caring advice while you're gone. Even online, your presence is very loving and compassionate.
Have fun and don't forget to come back! :D

Hey thank you very much for this video, it is also exactly what I needed to hear at this point in time.
He mentions David Wolfe as a mentor to him. Do you happen to know if David Wolfe has a similar philosophy as the one presented in this video? If so I think he may be an interesting author to look into.

I'm not sure about David Wolfe's philosophy really. I think that we all gravitate towards certain people when we enter into this lifestyle. He was not someone that I gravitated toward...just because at that time he was in a different place from what I needed. I needed healing as opposed to cacao buzzes and natural minerals from licking on rocks in the wilderness! LOL! All of that is great, but I was more in tuned with Victoria Boutenko and people who are trying to heal and maintain a low-keyed, realistic lifestyle. And that's not to take anything away from David, because many people follow his philosophy.
However, now I think I'm going to be paying alot more attention to this Dhrumil guy and who he is getting information from. Stillness, peace, ease, and healing are exactly what I need. You can look at his face and see that he's getting something wonderful from this, and it's not just nutrients. I want to be in that place. :o

To answer your question, I just found this. It's just a couple of snippets of the interview, not the whole thing.
Interview with Dhrumil Purohit at RawGuru.com
1. What are some Raw Food Staples in your current diet? Are you 100% Raw? How did you start?
On a daily basis I love the basics. Tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, kale, celery, lemon, apples, green juice and flax oil. I like keeping it simple and at least once a week I unconsciously fast. This pretty much means that I get so involved in a project that I just forget to really eat and instead I live off on raw-lemonade or water.
I am 100% raw, but like I say on the blog, "100% raw means when fancy pants restaurants like Pure Food & Wine use maple syrup instead of raw-agave and cooked cocoa instead of raw-cocoa I give in." But that may happen once a month. Sometimes I might have raw-chocolate-tea, but the temperature is so low that I could put my finger in the cup without getting burned. I learned that little tip from Arnold of Arnold's Way in Philadelphia.
6. Do you have any major influences?
Nature Love my original raw food mentor who introduced me to the diet. David Wolfe who has been my most influential teacher when it comes to specifically raw food. Eckhart Tolle and his partner Kim Eng who helped create the context for my peace of mind to rise. Joel Odhner from Raw Life Line and Arnold of Arnold's Way who have spent hours on end speaking with me about life and abundance. Is this starting to sound like an Grammy Award speech? Sarma Melngailis from Pure Food & Wine who's shear beauty has motivated me bring raw food to the masses just for the selfish reason of having more beautiful women like her on this planet. The We Like It Raw Squad, Neel, Nirav, Deepen, & Mihir. Dr. Jubb and Dr. Cousens are great mentors too, it should be illegal to be as smart as they are.

Great video - he brings up such valid points, and he really comes across as someone who is very calm and clear about what he is doing. I loved his definition of stress as something being one way, and you wish it were something else! Much good stuff for thought here, and I think he has a really sane approach that this lifestyle is a journey. Also to enjoy life, IMO. In real life, there always going to be times when you're in control of what you have for food, and others, well, you just have to roll with it as best you can and not to get overly-stressed about it.

Great video. I've seen it before, but I can always be reminded, and I find that I can sometimes get stuck in that seeking mind thought about anything, raw or not. I think I might share it with some people I know.

Wonderful information...thank you so much for sharing! Just what I needed to hear at this stage on my raw path. I think I've followed what he's shared innately when I jumped in at 100%, but there is always much to learn and I certainly still have so much to learn. Especially not "stressing" and letting go of seeking. His words and wisdom ring so true. Love it.
I hope the moderators transfer this over to Personal Growth so it doesn't get swallowed up in the threads here eventually -- more people will see it perhaps.

I can't thank you enough....it was the exact thing I need to see/hear/feel on this exact day....

OneBite@aTime, I can feel that you took it the same way as I did. Isn't it funny how things come to us in the right time and in the right way for us to receive it?
Here's to the end of the struggle! *glass of green smoothie raised* :D
