I was driving along the empty streets of CBD on Sunday night (this is a real story BTW) reading the flashing signs: STAY AT HOME, YOU MUST, STAY LOCKED. DO NOT SPREAD. DO NOT DRIVE ALONG LONSDALE STREET . So I felt sorry I did not have anything to spread accept the knowledge, good advises (to myself first of all) and some messages...
The streets were empty , the city looked like a ghost town from the sci-fi movie. There were people in white robes and white masks working on something very important, marching the streets and holding STOP and SLOW signs. They were not on Lonsdale Sreet. I was thinking I was in the Universal Studios in LA again, the futuristic looking Jedi wouldl re-appear soon from the corner and will say: "Now I know there is something stronger than fear - far stronger. The Force..." There were hardly any cars driving - one or two per longest street. I did a couple of circles just out of curiosity. There were still cafes and restaurants open with seldom visitors inside for take aways - a rushing off couple and an Asian student in spectacles.
People tend to go out and eat as they have simply forgotten how to put love in their food...
They simply ran out of love to offer with their own food or they refuse to eat the cooked at home meal for the same reason - lack of love inside such food.
They start to believe that love can be found somewhere else: in the cafes, restaurants, fast food and take aways. There are not many places that cook restaurant food with love. Even if they do this is not the love you are after. You buy it . You pay money for this love. They lack it themselves. Many do not place it in food.
We can taste love in food. We keep coming back to this places but the best one is the one you can cook at home for your friends and family as you know exactly who is coming and what thought forms to attach to the dish. If your chef is tired you will feel it in his food . If your mum loves you her food tastes simply divine. You accept the food from someone only if you love the person. You will never eat something from the hands of the person you do not like.
We forgot how to put love in our food.
We go out for different reasons. We go out to eat with the excuse that we do not have time to cook at home. We simply say that we can not cook "like this" at home. How you feel love from the place that serves you food? The chef himself comes out and serves what he cooked. We ask this at different locations and they know us and do it for us. He serves his food with love and smile too... But we still buy his love.
Let's come back to the home made meals. The ancient medical / pharmaceutical recipes were also the first cook books. The recipes included herbs, leaves, brews,, mushrooms, berries, all the right ingredients that complimented and enhanced each others qualities. I wrote about it many times before: "let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food..." I have not put one medical drug into my body in the last 35 years. For the simple natural remedy recipes our grandmas used whole chicken stock to heal flue and cold, rye bread to heal upset stomach, strong teas and coffees to heal headaches, etc etc , the list goes on... They are the recipes that help your body to make your immune system strong, to build you, not to destroy you...
Why do we go out to eat food again? It is fashionable too. It is well accepted, It is socially engaging. People love to see the photos of food. They are neutral, they look good, they are colorful, they are simple, they are triggering the very basic and common emotions in everybody... I find it so attractive too to see when a woman / man cooks at home and puts lots of positive energy inside a simple meal that shows real skills and even "tastes" good on photos. :) There is magic many people put in their home made meals. It makes the family, it creates love and warmth in the family. You say thank you not for the food but what energy the chef put inside your meal...
