The Zen of Preparing One’s Food
Preparing a meal for oneself, one’s family, “the communal table” at various levels, for the “tenzo”, the “chef” (cook) and the chef’s assistants within the Buddhist philosophy of the “spirit of meal preparation” brings a whole new meaning to the function of both kitchen and the “tenzo”. A renewed spirit of reverence for fresh food handling and preparation for specific life-styles and behaviors is essential. That “spirit” within which meals are prepared is transferred to those who ingest the vital nutrients of life and good health.
This book is not about recipes, but about the importance of reverence and a “life-style attitude” of the tenzo, the “chef” of which many of us are in various degrees. The daily effort of the practice of meal preparation is essential for refining one’s life and the lives of those one prepares such food, and is the foundation of one’s own enlightenment. Every daily practical work is the essence of personal refinement, and that includes one’s time within the kitchen and one’s attitude around procurement and the preparation of “one’s daily bread”, so-to-speak.
The spirit of meal preparation is the most fundamental of “Dogen’s” teaching: “Freedom is attained by realizing everything one encounters creates and is the self.” “Nonjudgment” is living with an unbiased mind. The very nature and complexities of the reality of each individual life and passing contain inconsistencies and negligence.
“Zazen”, daily contemplation (or meditation) assists the mind to be more flexible and capable of seeing from a broader perspective. Simply reading this very thin book and its footnotes, provides the meaning of the essential daily practice, of simple practice of both “Zazen” and the role of the “tenzo”, “chef”, “cook”, and the real role of meal preparation.
This book is a metaphor for each sector of our lives:
Be Ye Renewed by the Renewing of Your Mind
We Each Must Seek Higher Knowledge For Our Own Individual Salvation
Health issues permeate every area of our lives and are symbolic of whether one is effective and prosperous at an individual level. One does not have to attend college or university to go to the internet or library book shelves for specialty information. It requires personal effort and right choice to take the time to renew one’s mind, body and life. A personal choice and reward that outweighs the price. Whatever area of one’s life one is having challenges, those challenges are symbolic of the need for asking, seeking, and knocking for the right higher knowledge and experience of those who have tested and observed the variety of vitamins, minerals, herbs, foods, and ways of thinking that will provide the QUANTUM JUMP into a new life and a new way of being.
The Profound Knowledge Of “The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation” by Carey & Perry
Hidden knowledge rests in the pages of this research and understanding. You may not be one that likes to read books, you may not like “details,” but the hidden remedies and salvations come to those who are willing to take the effort of at least 30 minutes per day to study, to take notes, to learn, to review one’s notes, to internalize where they can find the solutions for their particular circumstances of health or other issues without having to go through very unnecessary additional pain.
It is so true that “The People Perish For Lack of Knowledge,” meaning that people are not willing to take the effort and time to be life-long learners, seekers of higher knowledge, studying who it is that one is and why it is that one is in a particular situation, and how to deal with a particular situation. Every ache and pain is symbolic of a source that has a remedy. This website shows images to motivate people to change maybe just one small element in their lives to make their lives more prosperous, healthier, and happier.
All it takes is a personal commitment to “focus and concentrate,” and be willing to take necessary personal steps to continue to learn and find answers and solutions that are applicable to one’s personal and individual salvation through higher knowledge, understanding and application (karma). Personal note taking and periodic reviewing of one’s personal notes serve as a tool that one can go back to, “Be Ye Renewed by the Renewing of Your Mind.”
A personal necessary daily ritual to make the effort to get up earlier for personal research and reading, studying, and contemplation on what one has studied is the way of daily renewal. The daily contemplation of one’s personal notes, and personally applying the steps to one’s own salvation in whatever area of one’s life one is focusing and concentrating on, is to simply be a better person and a better human being. One thus does not need to depend on others to bail one out of something. One thoughtfully takes the steps, no matter how small which create the QUANTUM LEAP which transcends the old way of being.
Frankly, this is what the personal inner spiritual individual does. The inner being is one’s right inner thoughts which manifest as right action, which is right karma, right understanding and right application of higher knowledge which is hidden in the right books. All one needs is one’s own, individual cosmic certification through the self-discipline necessary to make sure that one does not perish. Cosmic certification shows one various hidden truths. “The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation contains profound knowledge beyond what appears to be. It would be worth anyone’s time to explore the wisdom hidden in this book!!!!
“Facial Diagnosis of Cell Salt Deficiencies” is based upon “The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation” and provides the color facial images, the appearance of certain deficiencies in one’s system and the simple remedies for one’s individual pain and offers salvation from such agonies.
The colors and elements in one’s life are also part of the personal and individual salvation. Agonies are symbolic of necessary action needed for seeking, to find the right knowledge necessary to remedy whatever the agonies are. We have to operate at the very private and personal level – the inner being to transcend. In testing, observing, sometime increasing an element until we find the quantity and right remedies that work for one personally takes personal commitment and fortitude to stay at it. One maintains hope, and in maintaining this hope because one seeks and applies what works for one individually, one thus transcends one’s situation and circumstance. The process and the journey of the material of the right thought is the material of the spiritual, the unseen powers within, and the elements of the cosmos and our earth, the materials working together for the quantum leap into a new life and new being.
