Life is like a recipe: choose the proper ingredients in appropriate amounts; add them together with intention and care; bake well. What comes out is an expression of the baker, is beautiful to behold and delicious to eat! The ingredients in our recipe include spiritual practice, proper diet, exercise, fun activities, contemplation and reflection. We fold in love, compassion, deep listening, humility and grace. We bake in the heat of our sun and the warmth of our community. Slice it up, pass it around, and all will be nourished. Share your recipes! Today may we be grateful for ingredients, process, and the bread of life. Blessed Be, and Amen.
