If there is one thing absolute in this world it is that food has the power to unite. And the refugee crisis in Europe is a case in point. People from all ethnicities are reaching out to help their “brothers” and “sisters.”
"When you share food unconditionally, without discrimination you are in essence saying to that person: “I respect you; I love you; I honour you as an equal.” When food is given with such loving intention it transcends all language and cultural barriers."
When you share food unconditionally, without discrimination you are in essence saying to that person: “I respect you; I love you; I honor you as an equal.” When food is given with such loving intention it transcends all language and cultural barriers, and we are seeing this happening now in the Balkans. Centuries of hate and division can be erased with one simple act of kindness. That is the power of pure food (prasadam*) given with love.
Food for Life Global prides itself on serving such pure food and our mission is to expand such distribution of prasadam so that every man, woman, and child can experience the taste of love in the form of food.
In my book, FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul I expand on this concept and attempt to convince my readers of the value of eating and sharing pure food, not only for creating peace and unity in their neighbourhood, but also for embracing the power of food to nourish our mind and soul as well. Sadly, this message is lacking in the majority of health food gurus, who focus solely on the importance of nourishing the body with proper food choices and preparation.
What we are attempting to do at Food for Life Global is to inspire the search for this truth through the most fundamental act of kindness — sharing pure food.
Just imagine the world where there was no discrimination? Imagine the world where there was no racism, speciesism, nationalism — the world where every living being from humans to animals, insects, plants and aquatics were respected equally and our entire model for sustainability was based on spiritual equality. Imagine how much happier we would all be. Imagine how peaceful and prosperous the world would be. Imagine!
It is possible and it all begins with sharing pure food with loving intention. We invite you to join as at Food for Life Global in this noble endeavor.
