Consciously choosing not to outsource my faith or practices to any corporation or foreign religion. Today we choose to remember our ancestors and work to rekindle the generations-long millennial relationships our people had with Creator, earth and all creation. No chocolate bunny or imagery of torture and subjugation are allowed in my sacred family space. Certainly everyone is free to choose their paradigm, but I prefer to keep mine local and grounded in the earth.
I also want to take a moment to reflect on CHOCOLATE, whose birthplace is Mexico. We have an ancient and sacred relationship with it. “In the 19th century there were 1800 hectares of cocoa. Four years ago, there were only four hectares[…][Mexico] is the country that showed chocolate to the world[…]It is printed in our genes.”
