Attitude of generousity, not elimination

I have discovered since beginning to go raw that there are a lot of attitudes about that say 'eliminate the bad - eliminate, eliminate!' ... and I noticed that in the first week I have been swinging in my behaviour from extremely healthy, to almost fearing a loss of my favourite sweets such as chocolate and wanting to indulge until I burst in them.

I realised that my connection to these 'naughty foods' was not just physical, and about a high dependence on sugar, but it was also very emotional and very much a trade mark of the struggle in detoxing my body.

It is quite an emotional journey and my energy levels are so very low that I feel incredibly 'flat'.

I have however been growing in myself, learning that this is a generous way to live. I have been able to do this by reminding myself of how far I have come. It does not matter that I 'cheated' and ate that chocolate, but what matters more is that I drank those green smoothies and I have eaten so many vegetables and fruit over the past week.

It is more about being generous to my body by actually looking after it and ensuring it is well fed. That I am doing much more good to it, than I am 'making mistakes' and I am trying to look after it so that it too will take care of me. This is poignant and more important than focusing on what is 'not allowed'.

I found a wonderful podcast which I recommend 'we like it raw' '100% raw what works' posted on 26/07/10.

They talk about not being so black and white about your thinking and approach to raw, even though they both have done the 100% raw diet they emphasise to have fun above all and listen to your body.

This is going to be an interesting journey but I'm glad that I'm not on it alone..
