Some reasons for going liquid...
Some words on commitment.If it makes sense to commit to a true love for the rest of one's life, can we bring an analogous depth to bear on diet?

Going liquid is a personal choice, in that unlike raw or veganism, you can't say it's what the whole world should do. It's what you feel you have to do to fulfill your potential and "maximize your options", as Someone once said to me. Once you've puzzled over what you need and want in your life, and tried various dietaries, you're in a position to know yourself. What's really going to make you happy to wake up? happy to go to sleep? more loving with trees and your loved one? the best dancer and singer and colorist and drummer you can be? the calmest when rejected? the alivest and healthiest? the most shriven of your past - your own sins and others' against you and others' against the world? What we eat is what we are - what you ate yesterday is what you are today, and what you eat today will be what your life is next year. Look at what you eat today - do you want that to be your life when you are another year older and, perhaps, another year farther from your dream?
I just don't connect well with eating solids. They bring me down. They're problematic. We want a dietary that's going to allow us to stop thinking about food and start living and being true and essential and Good, and beautiful, too. Have you reached the limit of the misery and depression you can tolerate?
Making a commitment to a dietary seems to be a lot like making an emotional commitment to love someone. Nobody tells you, no "guru" or "expert" or "study on chimps", to love someone - if you do, it's because you have to, even if you don't want to and it's a vast inconvenience, and no-one will ever support you in it. You're called. Some people get positive feedback (from the loved one, requition) and societal reinforcement for their love, and many do not. It's like that with dietary. Then look at the quality of the relationship. Look at the marriages that had the weddings and the ritual vows and even _cost money_. Look at the contracts between people and the dietaries that get media/medical reinforcement. Wouldn't you rather be you? The pressure mounted by La Machine against your most holy feelings or against your dietary forge - can forge - a QUALITY and TRUTH and sacredness of relationship and of life that the billions will never know. Hint: if it hurts, if it's difficult and does not come easy but takes time and discomfort and re-wiring and re-structure to work through, you are on the right track.
We expect a lot from the people we've identified as those-we-love, and it's often in the form of an urgency and franticness that has little if anything to do with them, and a lot to do with past - past junk, past programming, past mistakes. If we ever want true love, we have to learn to investigate the pain, pressure and discomfort we feel when things are going wrong, when we are feeling hurt and rejected - and it's the same thing with commtting to a dietary. Key: STOP your reactivity. If someone hurts you, DON'T DO what you usually do. That's your key to your holiest desires. If you're on your dietary and you DON'T GET the paradise you expect - if you feel insane with detox, grumpy, fierce, wiped out, foggy, disappointed, letdown, unsupported by your dietary that's supposed to make everything better NOW the wayyou want it, don't just react by eating something cooked or nonvegan or solid or whatever. You're experiencing something that isn't about you OR the dietary - it's about the past, the past dietary, the past poisons, other people's poisons you let get into you. You have to let the dietary you are on unfold according to its own time and wisdom. Trust it. Accept its unphotogenic face, accept its hair-tearing unpredictability, accept its deathly silence when you want it to talk to you. Hang in there.
Just committing, just "showing up", open, every day, to whatever, is a profound act of miraculously loving transformation. It'll change you in everything you are and do, make you much gentler and softer and sweeter, happier with yuourself.
This rant hasn't really been about reasons to go liquid!
I want better skin and hair, amazing thought and mental energy, spiritual and emotional happiness, connection with all the beauty in the universe, peace and serenity and relaation and I want to be my best. I want to be the good, brilliant, euphoric me one usually only glimpses in a very few special times - I want to be that every day, all the time.
