First of all, I don't watch television. But the other day when I was at the gym I went for the lightest magazine on the rack to help get me through my elliptical climb (it was too hot outside) and I had to avoid glancing up at Fox News blaring on the screen above me. How could I resist Oprah's beaming smile on the cover of the May 2008 issue? I know, I know, it's so mainstream. But you know what? I read it from cover to cover and shhh! I even took it home with me. I was astonished to find legit ways for provoking a personal health transformation. I'm not just talking about those Get Skinny Quick Tricks, but more about the subtle ways the articles were leading to peace in innermost states. I thought "Yay, Finally!" and "Wow! The global healing phenomenon is accelerating so rapidly."
I was happy to think that there was something in this magazine that my busy bee Mother might pick up on. Or an article my country life Grandmother Hazel would cut out and give back to me. Or possibly, even just one sentence that could stick in my nonchalant sister Nova's head.
You see, I already know this movement is strong digitally. It's everywhere online. People are waking up and sharing ways to do so. But NOW it's on the tele AND right where it needs to be: Oprah Winfrey. No matter what you think of her, this can not be a bad thing. She has a huge following!
Guess what? A couple of days after I read the May edition, Dr. Will Tuttle sent out a newsletter stating his enthusiasm for Oprah's 21 Day Cleanse in accordance with Kathy Freston and inspired by Eckhart Tolle. For the record, I have never read either of their works. Anyway, Will asked me to publish the letter to his web blog. (I edit, post, and add pictures to WorldPeaceDiet.com) You should Read it.
I think Will and his wife Madeleine are passionate beings, true to their cause, and doing an outstanding job of spreading the words, energy, and motivation for people to eat spiritually healthy for increased social harmony. They are constantly on the road giving lectures. When will they be in your area? Overall, they help people bring consciousness to their dinner tables. To bring awareness to it all...This, is what Lucid Nutrition is about, so I support 100% of their generous efforts.
The question is: Can Oprah Winfrey tolerate ALL the truth about food? Would reading The World Peace Diet change her forever? Or will she carry on after her 'cleanse', back to her same ol' eating habits? I honestly think not. We are all ever evolving.
