Politeness Should be a Factor for Us

I saw this "Dear Abby" post in my local newspaper and I'll link to another source for it -- note the first article.

This appalled your Chocolate Priestess to no end. Not "Dear Abby's" comments, though I think her response lacked the spiritual component we should consider in The Chocolate Cult, but the very situation.

I don't care how much you love chocolate in any of it's forms. You should attempt to foist your food preferences, your political philosophy or your religious beliefs onto someone who had stated they are not interested.

How would you feel is someone came to you and said you could no longer have the dark, milk or white chocolate you desire and use? That's correct, Sisters and Brothers, you would not like it one bit and the negative feelings this would create in your would temp you to leave your spiritual and life path, leading you astray and dampening your connection with the Divine.

Chocolate is our method, it is not the Divine itself, but one of the Creator's and humanity greatest collaborations. Appreciate it fully, offer it to others but if they turn aside then rejoice that this leaves more for you.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
