Power of Chocolate
What do you think of this idea to utilize all of the sacred substance?
Your Chocolate Priestess thinks that is a wonderful idea for two reasons which can be considered this week's Revelations.
First, is it not a slap in the Divine's face to not use all of Its precious creation to the fullest of it's potential? Think of all the damage we do to Earth by tossing away so much, think of all the land we despoil that might be used to grow more of this sacred bean. In all ways, I think that using even the shells could be beneficial depending on what might be contained in the smoke arising from it or mixed with the coal.
Second, would not this increase the profit for the bean grower and perhaps then lower the price he charges for the beam itself? I do not know if you are aware but the price of cocoa is going up, Sisters and Brothers. If the price goes up, it will decrease the numbers we can potentially save through the proper use of Chocolate. Prices remaining steady or falling will open the Path to more people increasing the general connectedness between humanity and the Divine.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
