What a journey! It has been almost a full year that True Nature and the kitchen food arm was approached by Whole Foods and a few other Front Range grocery operations. And now we are days away from the first products hitting the shelf. It has taken almost all of this travelled time to align all of the components that it takes to engage such an undertaking. More importantly than the dimensional yada yada of inspections, administrative hooping, application submissions, distribution and such, is the tempering of spirit and forging of intention, clarity and resolve. The four founders of True Nature Kitchen and foods, Eaden, Deva, Pam and Myself have been on a “True Nature Warriors Journey” of sorts, to identify what it is that we are doing as we create and prepare magic to go into the world. One of the questions we ask in our meetings and in intention creation settings are this, “What shall we do when we are honored with attention, for even a mere moment?” What will we do differently that will garner an opportunity to share our message, who it is that we are and what do we believe here at True Nature?
To simply distill that answer out loud as we have discussed it as a group internally, and with all of our dear tribe staff; we are here to share presence and model what intentional presence can provide to our own healing. In our ever-growing kitchen “Core Value Statement” written in erasable marker on the production kitchen wall (to allow for constant changes), we continue to evaluate this key statement that evolves from each tenant of our core values.
“We believe that what will illuminate True Nature’s greatness, is our High Vibration Culture. There may be many replications of our created products down the road, however our commitment to each other, our tribe and our intention will continue to set us apart and insure our regenerative potential.”
This statement is a distillation of our ten-ish internal core values that we continue to discuss and re-calibrate as we grow as a group. Many of these I wish to speak to individually as time moves forward.
One thing that we are certain of as founders is the extraordinary task that spirit has entrusted to us. To provide just a glimpse of awareness to what we all are capable of here in this glimmer of a lifetime. To Awaken. To Evolve. To Love. Each and every choice that we make in our efforts, in all aspects of True Nature Kitchen is refined thru this concept. We have a belief that if we continue to honor our commitment to this intention, even when we are faced with fear, or friction internally, we trust we will continue to be supported. Modeling this with an intention to see only our selves transmute our own pains and wounds is a much clearer, more manageable path to local and global supports than something as outwardly lofty as saving the world. In True Nature Kitchen, we see our moment of attention as a potential to show a lighted bridge. As we are deeply immersed in the paradigms of modern day business, we interact with the daily constructs and conflicts of the business world. And we are now blessed to see so many ascension companies like ourselves, choosing this bridge potential of ethical and transparent interactions. Taking a longer road and less travelled to investigate all aspects of sustainable and fair practices, and looking for ways to be a value and be in service to our local and global community. Re-tooling the way we look at financial health, and supporting a movement from the paradigm of fear and lack attitude, hoarding, and stockholder based distribution decisions, to one of fairness and equalized compensations across the stakeholder pathway. It is a passageway of little bites, setbacks and sometimes heart wrenching tears. Still, the rewards we seek to be a partner to in this great experiment, and the constant flow of loving adoration and fulfillment that comes each time we hit the mark, inspires us deeper into our passions and makes the tasks and grinds so much more delicious. It additionally invokes our greatest tool in our manifestation tool belt, Gratitude. Thank you to each member of our internal True Nature tribe. Thank you for your belief, your hard work and willingness to see this as a great experiment towards your own growth as we all grow together. Thank you to our dear community who provides us with adoration and loving feedback that helps us all grow forward. And, Thank You to each of my dear partners in this crazy journey, Pam, Eaden and Deva, whom hold the flag of this belief and vision with as much love and tenacity as any other beings I’ve worked with. They also exhibit extraordinary endurance and patience towards the wild haired mad scientist and persevering samurai I can be when I love a vision this much. It is a perfect alchemy, and I’m honored to be a small part of it. Look for some amazing things from True Nature this year as we light the fuse and blast off with High Prana.
As Tears Flow
Life’s tears, they do fall
Sugar from the sky,
Salt from the eye,
They blend in a dance of destiny that consecrates the very mother they caress,
And gives life to all the creatures, plants and souls, with love,
Merging with all earth’s waters making way to the seas regal plateau.
Love is the “only” journey,
Love is the endless flow,
Love is the natural instincts in which they’re joining create.
In the rivers they roar, congregating in strength, creating the very landscapes they forge.
In the oceans they fall in reverence to the goddess moon, bowing and rising as each wave surrenders its majestic life to the shore.
In the calm bottoms of lakes and streams they coalesce in primordial bliss to support life struggling, gestating, and emerging to express.
And in the heat and radiance of the grandfather suns glow, the drops choose ascension and shift from dense matter to ethereal essence,
Sharing all waters journey with creator,
And begin yet another path towards unity and presence.
The power of choice granted to each droplet never finding a moment of hesitation
As a tree, a rock, or body of earth present separation.
Love is the choice, the impeccable dream,
The water travels, surrenders, nourishes, and returns upstream.
And deeply embedded in the cells of every salty, sugary tear,
The soul of every rain bead this Mantra we all inherently know,
Love is the journey
Love is the flow
