Cool, the beach is a good place for food.
Had me some clams and oysters last night.Not at the beach though.


I discovered a good Mindfulness meditating practice.
Picking and preparing Stinging Nettles and Devils club.


You must not get distracted or they will sting and poke you.
You don't want any Devils club needles in your pot that might make it down your throat. LOL


This is a good way to talk to your food and medicine. Being mindful of everything that goes into it's Life and yours.
This is a big reason why I like gathering my own foods and medicines.
To talk and build relationship with my food and medicine.
Bring their Spirit in all the way through the process.

It's just how I enjoy doing things.
Learning and having a relationship with my environment.

I believe there is security in knowing what to eat from ones environment.
Not only what to eat but how to prepare it.

I also feel I only know a little and strive to learn.

In this day and age, the majority of the influencers are telling me to be a
consumer of products.This is a very shallow existence in my view.


The most basic of teachings in the Native American view is one of inter-connectedness to all Life, both animate and inanimate.
In the Lakota language there is a phrase and basic teaching of inter-connectedness:
Mitakuye Oyasin
Quote:
The phrase translates in English as "all my relatives," "we are all related," or "all my relations." It is a prayer of oneness and harmony with all forms of life: other people, animals, birds, insects, trees and plants, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys

So sinse they are my relations I build relationships. I'm not a consumer.

I also see it in the form of Chi or energy or what I might call Spirit.
The vital Life force which gives vitality to Life.
I do not only hope to partake in the minerals and vitamins and physical form
I'm also partaking in the Life's energy Chi our Spirit.
This type of relationship with my environment brings much Joy and Happiness and Good memories.

Of course I believe all people lived at one time in relationship to the Land until the Romans/Catholics came a conquering
knocking people into a different form of living. Today I have no doubt they would find me guilty of crimes against the church
just for living and having such relationships with my environment.


They would be against my expression of Love toward my environment.
