Jonathan has been living in
and recently spent some quality time at our ashram in , for some training in devotional
life. He is now slowly making his way back to Montreal as a more experienced man after
having lived like a monk. His stopover in Edmonton
is for seeing family and a chance to see our humble self. He agreed to join me
on a trek down the ravine – a mere 7 kms after his 5 hour bike ride from
I was impressed with his physical output.
As we pulled along we talked much about food and healthy eating. He recently just came off a master cleanser, a popular fast. And so, our parlance was rather typical of what you would expect from anti-pesticidal, anti-genetically modified food fans.
Let’s agree that the quality of food today leaves much to be desired. Considering we live in the age of Kali (age of deceit), we can expect imperfections, and we shouldn’t harbour on food forever, so let’s get beyond that.
Let’s talk of sadhana, spiritual things, mantras and such which serve to liberate. After all, a conversation needs balance. Jonathan was happy to oblige me. The trek through the raving went speedily, or so it seemed, because our talk was very engaging.
May the Source be with you!
