sattvic diet

"Sattva is defined as the quality of purity and goodness. Sattvic food is that which is pure, clean and wholesome. A sattvic diet is food that gives life, strength, energy, courage and self-determination.

Since we are an inseparable part of this underlying field of intelligence, we are also the source of all reality. In every moment, we are co-creating our world with and in the universe. Everything we will ever know is a result of a process in our mind.  Both, the ancient wisdom traditions and modern science tell us that our bodies, our minds, and the physical world are projections of our consciousness. Only consciousness is real - everything else is its projection. “You are not in the world; the world is in you.” (D. Chopra)
