A peaceful night ride to puerto escondido. The sun now rising, revealing streams of green outside my window, and laser beam flowers yellow and purple. It looks like a Star Trek warp scene, stars streaming by, in color.
Appears welcoming. Pacific coast without the extreme development of California. Much of this land is natural , not even perverted by recombinant rancheros.
I made my first batch of coconut milk, and in doing so I believe I’ve accidentally discovered how to isolate and claim fat from the coconut flesh. I was drinking it and the oil clumped together! Oil pulling unintentional. If I want it I will just allow this to occur and sift it out. So now, the rest of my time in the tropics I will have my own coco milk and easy coco oil always easy at hand.
After reading “the alchemist” I’ve been having secret fantasies of pulverizing and mixing and distilling everything.
Two volcanoes born in Lake Nicaragua. Small side is the peaceful side. Find cheap private cabinas, or hire a hammock for $3, or camp out.
No ATMs, no supermarkets, no cars.
One “chicken bus” to take around the rock, twice per day. Ferry to and from the island.
Best part, relaxing with Doña Clara’s family and eating amazing Nica meals with Don Julio hot sauce.
The richest juiciest carrots on Earth are found here
Experienced this blessing in April this year… What an amazing year in the tropics.
sighting today in DF México
Back to Mexico City today… Stuffed my squirrel cachetes with Nachitos Vegano at Caté De Mi Corazón en barrio de fresas Condesa.
Theres a film festival on here and now $3 a pop, índi cinema and spanish lessons in Unión. Ai Weiwei exhibit at Museo Nacional Antropologio. … Tickled by trip idea to Teotihuacán…. And lots mas Veggie spots aquí to take inspiration from. “Los Loosers mañana. Today had my thrills of tacos; de Jamaica y Mole!… De setas!!… Y quelites aguacate… ¡¡¡YOMMMMMMM!!!🙏
Caught a glimpse of Ometepe on our way back to Mex. I spent a week there and happily would have stayed forever. Best carrots of my life at Doña Clara’s verduleria. My corazon wills to return and spend a good couple months traveling INWARD at this blessed pair of volcanic islands(the right one is bigger than the left) in the amazing Lago Nicaragua… Which has some amazing beings swimming around in fresh water like sea turtles, sailfish and bull sharks that adapted when the land closed off the water from mama ocean and became less saline over time. Now the Sharks swim all the way to Tortuguero to mate.
Some day will take the time to peck at this pocket computer and put up pictures of this recent Costa Rica part 2… guauuuu…. Tortuguerooooooo que padre
Back in Ticolandia
In San Jose the capitol, for one week, a new veg restaurant every day. Neshuma , El Buho Vegetariano, Mantras, Comida Para Sentir, and Arbol De Seda.
Now in Puerto Viejo Talamanca, and the change from Latin to Caribbean culture is vivid.
Found a peaceful piece of the Caribbean, treasured solitude after being glued to a DISASTROUSLY sick travel companion for two weeks.
Well, the first words of wisdom I cling to like a dingleberry is IT HAPPENS, and was blessed to hold on to sanity through it all, like I was a dingleberry and the world and all its forces tried to knock me off. My partner is much healthier now and no longer murmuring like a baby while I spoon feed her water… and we are back to the light. Love love love, love is all you need hallelujah! It is great to look back and laugh, I think I learned some valuable life lessons, and I definitely have some awesome stories to entertain of Caribbean emergency transport
We are made of vibrations, and no matter the manipulation, we will shine our way out! there’s nothing that can stop that intrinsic beauty from overflowing through any mask or deception.
I am not vegan anymore.
Of course I will maintain all its practices, but as SECOND NATURE, as instinct. I will not give it a name as if this LOVE-PRACTICE is anything different from NORMAL or NATURAL. I am not American. I am not anglo. I am not male. I AM a soul, responsibly occupying this mind, body, this planet. My AIM is that all my actions and choices will reflect care and love, inward and outward.
Veganism exists to end veganism. A vegan restaurant CRAVES competition. Competition is not negative for vegans. Vegans don’t want to be unique vegan-restaurant hunting vampires who outlive all their carnivore companions. Vegans want others to join in the love practice. Vegans want everyone to love everyone. Vegans want the word veganism to dissolve. Vegans want veganism to become so normal, the choice of love to be the obvious choice, for all to follow their heart. If the love grows, great. And if not, great.
It is not a great concern to convert. There is no vegan church with priests dependent on tithing and expensive gifts. There is no home for stubbornness when a vegan is talking to you, it is from their heart. Resisting veganism is resisting love, and will only further congestion, constipation from storing food far too heavy for those long loving herbivore intestines.
If you think you are a carnivore, like those beings with claws and canines who help thin out the sick and old in the circle of life, then here is your challenge to prove it; go jump on a cow and take it down with your teeth and claws and devour it.
After over one year of choice discerning food intake purely vegetarian, I have discovered that (DISCRIMINATION) is the opposition of all LOVE.
I have been discriminated against only by those who discern themselves as ovo-lacto vegetarians.
Carnivores, no problem, no worries about anything. They invite me to a steak house without any offense intended. When offering food, they brush off the meat and really believe its fine. And for me, this is not offensive. Of course I don’t eat the food, but I often go to places against the flow of water, to share company with loved ones. “They are not Dickheads, they are just Dumbasses” as my friend Abran describes, for the weekend warriors who come to rock-climb “up the hill” on Big Bear Lake, throwing their climbing rope over the edge without looking below, almost hitting us. These meat-eaters really are blind to heart-song, and live their waking lives as their sleep lives. I know, because, I was this way in the past. And there is no rightness to be angry at them.
The Ovo-Lactos, however, truly loathe me. I still send nothing but love to them as well, for it is my perception that they are me. They see what they are doing as better, better than the carnivores, discriminated and isolated from the carnivores, and when I come along, simply announcing non-discriminating non-consuming of any form, it really irks them who have practiced the inward discrimination and found others to coagulate with.
Generation V will evolve. The osmosis will occur and the tides will flow. Old self-serving notions will wash away along with those who so stubbornly reside in them. This is the freedom of death. Veganism is the freedom in life.
Therefor I am not vegan
I am the universe
I am of this Earth
I am nature
I am love
“Form is emptiness
Emptiness is form
Matter and spirit are one
But all is void.
Man is not alive
Is not dead
Is unborn and undying
Without old age and disease
Without increase and without decrease”
These are pure truths
natural non-material, to be non-thought over
To be Non-discriminated over
Self is corrected by non-action… by no longer controlling, attempting to spin one way or the other, likely to spin more often in the anti-self direction
Correct is nature
By no longer trying to spin in any direction
By following beautiful form
By following self
The butterfly mimics the flowers it seeks
This great being Siddhartha had many “followers”. Many took not one single step in the path.
But those who walked in the steps were the non-followers,
The ones who took no claims of a leader, or made no words
The ones who “walk” who non-walk … Rosa Parks. Pancho Ramos Stierle . The loving defenders and of 4.6.89 at Tianenmen Square. And millions more. They are the light that shines, when one senses darkness.
They are the single candle
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened”
They are the rice seed which can grow a thousand
The ones who became leaders of their self
The ones who naturally are non-discriminators
The ones who realize we all are truly natural, non-discriminators
Non-discrimination is universalism
The universe is love
The universe gives love, providence, guidance
To separate self from love is only illusion,
Confusion which is foolish to believe is not apparent, or easily hidden.
Anti-illumination… the opposite of illumation or even non-illumination
Is to create the illusion of separation from the Universe, from self.
Is to invite the dark
Good thing the light always shines the non-way :)
Good thing, one is always there
