A review of health claims about dark chocolate appeared today in a newspaper. Contrary to the title of this piece, not much insight is given to the spiritual benefits of dark chocolate but then that's why we are here, Sisters and Brothers.
We may be delighted when we read such things but once more we see that the mass media news services provide us with very little useful information. This one at least did mention that you need at least 70% cocoa to be beneficial but it did not say how much chocolate in terms of ounces provide the benefits it vaguely mentions. Until such information is readily available we need to always be thinking of moderation when we use the Sacred Substance.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
