Day 58 ♥
Today I had the pleasure to finish reading Dick Gregory's book, 'Natural Diet For Folk Who Eat: Cookin' With Mother Nature'.
I have really enjoyed Dick Gregory's insights and humour; and I especially valued the last chapter.
I would like to share some quotes from that last chapter with you ♥.
"The same mentality which sanctions the dropping of bombs on Vietnam is responsible for spraying poisonous chemicals on the fruits and vegetables people eat. Even the rationale is the same. Spraying fruits and vegetables, it is said, is for the protection of the consumer. The same reasoning insists that bombing Vietnam is for the Vietnamese people's own good!"
"As mentioned earlier, in the chapter on fasting, when the body is cleansed, the six basic fears plaguing humankind disappear. This is true of both individuals and nations. America seems to be afraid the nation will be overwhelmed externally, by some mysterious force - a red menace, a yellow peril, etc. It never seems to occur to America that the greatest menace is internal, the gradual and not so mysterious degeneration of the bodies of Americans and the effect that disintegration has on the mind, emotions and behavior patterns.
" Individual Americans show the same irrational fears. Some worry and fret while riding in an airplane, fearing the possibility that the plane will crash. It never occurs to them there is more danger in the meal they will eat on the plane. When the basic fears disappear as a result of cleansing the system, the terrible problems rooted in those basic fears also begin to be solved - racial hatreds, bigotry and misunderstanding, an infatuation with war and killing - all of the seemingly "insoluable" problems we face today."
" Anything we are supposed to have Mother Nature places at our doorstep. At twelve noon, we walk out of the door and we know where Mother Nature's sun will be. Her rain comes down on us, and her air and her wind. But the birds fly away when we approach and animals scamper at the sound of our footsteps. It's as though they know we can't be trusted.
" Apples don't run away from us. They fall off the trees into our waiting hands. Oranges, pears and peaches don't try to escape. They remain in Mother Nature's kitchen, being baked and ripened by her natural sunlight. So enjoy her pantry! You'll be so glad you did. Because Mother Nature's cookin', baby!
Peace be with you."
Thank You very much Dick Gregory for these words of beauty and truth ♥
