Funny how they keep us dependent on the numbers. And 0$ is the funniest one yet. When I was at Tri-State University I was studying in a dorm, eating cafeteria food, running for the track team, living for that chance to betterment. Progressively the most horrible six months of my adult life looking back now. But I knew nothing about the concept of raw way back then. How can we be born so dependent into a loving and caring family to take responsibility of us when we are born? I mean when do we become independent?
What a belief system. We are led to an ultimate reality such as this scenario: I'll just be ingonorant.
Then instead of the family readying us to take care of ourselves into a money based society, there is a broken system of education fostering a fosterage with the student loan. Slavery is then set up to make $ go round, so we try to educate ourselves to find something better only to be brought through that education system caught in a ever so humbling dependency on money all over again. Except this time it's a scenario of total helplessness when we are considered to be adults and well beyond those first years of our youth. A good support system should have been able to let us learn how to manage on our own without the need for money by now. This is the dilemma I have to face, and I ain't no spring chicken anymore, even though I feel young at heart. I still have financial considerations to make it possible to eat, have shelter, and find some sort of contentment. I guess the only way out is to create a charity to help children avoid the cycle of slavery I am confronted with. But my words are futile in a selfish society. Help me to help you. But I ramble and gamble on this.

Maybe this is why Jesus cursed the fig tree that did not give fresh fruit freely. Didn't you read this?
The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.
When evening came, they went out of the city.
In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."
Mark 5:1-17 (Matthew 8:28-34; Luke 8:26-38) "They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes. And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain, for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out and cutting himself with stones. And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him. And crying out with a loud voice, he said, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me." For he was saying to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!" And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He replied, "My name is Legion, for we are many." And he begged him earnestly not to send them out of the country. Now a great herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and they begged him, saying, "Send us to the pigs; let us enter them." So he gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered the pigs, and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea and were drowned in the sea. The herdsmen fled and told it in the city and in the country. And people came to see what it was that had happened. And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid. And those who had seen it described to them what had happened to the demon-possessed man and to the pigs. And they began to beg Jesus to depart from their region".
There's so much to consider but I'll keep it simple.
I recall reading in DRs bible, err I mean the 811rv book by Dr. Graham something to the same effect. Don't eat dehydrated and re-soak and think you are doing the body much good eating out of season sundried fruit.
They missed their chance to sell you the wonderful fruit fresh in season at the peak of season prices which are cheaper by the dozen. Don't be fooled by imitators. Out of the blue and into the black.
Now you can wannabe a 811raw vegan, and worry about getting an adequate amount of greens. After all Dr. Graham says you have to do so many things, according to his diet, and if you don't, don't blame his method, because it works for him. You can't blame him if you have a genetic defect either. You know I don't want to fail miserably after jumping through all the hoops he proposes to be a success, and I probably have some genetic flaw in me somewhere that is not predisposed to the making of money in an unsustainable way just to support my new found addiction of the 811rv diet. Instead of moving to something real the tendency is to just move to something else in the same old notion of doing things like I have attention defficit disorder or ADD. Well add to this "Not" because probably I know I have a predisposition to cheap Fruit. It's best when it's free, but I don't want a cheap date shriveled and devoid of the proper water content just to prevent spoilage. I'll be taking back with me from California's fruit too much processing which is inefficient. I know if I am not watching what I write, say or do I'd tend to sound like I blame you and everyone else who can't get His red letters straight, "Get thee behind me Satan!"
"Man in Black" Johnny Cash
Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.
I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.
Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.
I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.
And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.
Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.
Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.
So why does a recurring theme come back to haunt us when we hear, "don't forget to eat your greens"? Because, maybe it's some kind of funky sterile green eggs hybrid we should be eating? Then with this premise taken to this broken heart of mine, I'll eat green coconuts, which also comes to me from the Revelation of being a snake up in the tree, as the Young Coconut. For what else does a snake do up in trees hanging around nests? And the weird and wacky world of eating the sterile egg as a concept of "not vegetarian" comes from one of Jiddu Krishnamurti's discussion he had trying to get to the truth. With the green eggs part from Dr. Seuss' highly acclaimed children's book, "Green Eggs and Ham." Put this mess of the my mind all together and I still have to imagine how to put the green ham as the meat and what this is all about.
In the long run you'll find out that a 7 year ache seems to be the limit with the mind/body connection. You can deal with the many conflicts in personality but the body truly knows what is the best choice if you just try it and thus tolerate the rejections of you saying, "it can't be like this." Shaking off the mixed emotions of ridding the body of addictions is the kicker. Personally I eat the Young green coconuts as the only unripe fruit and have come to eat this as my bread and wine from the many concepts used in the Holy Bible's abstraction of where the mind needs to go to send the message across the universe. To use an image of a man is all the more to my secret to my success. I also think of it as meat in the substitute sixes for sevens game. The simple things you see are all complicated. I look pretty Young but I'm just backdated. Therefore I don't worry about the other greens which is so ingrained into the human psyche by incorrect imaginings of what is healthful. You are psyche-K.O.ed (trade marked) into making elaborate concoctions of abstract thinking about what meals are best. which are an inefficient method of eating anyway. Just choose the FRUIT (Fruitarian Reality Ubiquitous Intelligence of Truth), and you'll eventually learn there is nothing better for YOURSELF in a weaning process.
Anyway, you need a big slice. So keep the wedges large, but remember where more than a mouthful is just too much. So don't bite off more then you can chew. It's simple to quarter tomatoes, and oranges with a knife but the use of blenders and juice machines take much of the fruit's structure away, and the joy you receive eating. Chewing is really necessary. So to make smoothies and entering into the juicing traditions are not for me but for the little ones just learning to eat solid food I'll say, "all the power to them."
