I saw the news on the internet, Chile, life, all this struggle, search, happiness, pain, healing, friends, family, babies, but just seconds of memories...this moment, now. The recordings were full of sadness and frustration, our helplessness as human beings, hopelessness...how can we help...how can we heal this planet?

Here is the recipe:
1 cup almonds
1 cup cashews
1 cup dates
1/4 cup espresso
1/2 cup cacao nibs
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
20 drops of gotu kola, optional but it is the real deal with the pick me up:)
1 tsp almond extract ( I used hazelnut extract because I didn't have the almond)
blend everything in a food processor until the dough holds its shape
and press it together to make little round circles.
Now the real deal! The Cashew Mascarpone..
1 cup cashews soaked
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup agave
1 vanilla bean
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice
blend everything until smooth and add:
1/3 cup cacao butter
2 tablespoon lecitin
Refrigerate over night. Spread over the tiramisu base and sprinkle
cacao powder and some fairy dust! Enjoy!

And such is the mystic. The mystic seeks to remove the "and" from between the spaces in life and in our hearts.
Mystics seek to remove the "and" from prayer, work, love, service. They seek to remove the "and" from indeed all of life and living.
And today again I hear the words, "life is not always pretty but beautiful" Yes, it is true...such a longing for finding where we lost the knowledge of who we are, followed by the pure joy to remember, reconnect. It exists. I do remember, so can anyone. So grateful to every single moment of my life that lead me to ME! Celebrating, costa rican style, sushi rolls, and a turkish drama, thursday nights are my favorite! Hmmm, tomorrow will be iced coconut chai tea, thai style!
