Is It Time To Start Calorioting?
‘On a feast day at the temple when I was quite young, they were giving out special sweets. Maharajji gave me a small leaf cup of these sweets that he had been keeping especially for me. Then he said, “You give those sweets back to me.” So I gave them to him, because I had such faith in him. He just put the leaf cup under his blanket and began distributing those sweets from under his blanket. I don’t know how he did it, but he gave a handful to each person in that huge crowd of at least a thousand people. I was so surprised. I couldn’t understand how he could be distributing so many more sweets than the number of sweets I had given to him, so, being just a kid, I stuck my hand under his blanket and took out the leaf cup to see. Maharajji turned to me and said, “Now the magic is finished.”’ — Miracle of Love; Stories about Neem Karoli Baba, by Ram Dass
Just a little meme to pay homage to delicious calories. Here’s to sugar and some other sweet, comforting, stress removing things. Maybe one day they will find a little relief from the blame and shame they are continuously and unjustifiably exposed to.
May the real culprits be unmasked, and brought out into the light for all to see.
