Spinach, this one from my garden - strong, healthy and full of good things. Spinach is the main ingrediens in this dish. My mother gave me this recipe. She got it from a lady who have visited India several times.



indisk mat, spenat

1. Cut onion and garlic in small pieces, add two slices of garlic in pieces and let it heat up some minutes on medium heat. 2. Add crashed tomatoes, 200g spinach in pieces and let it mix/boil together. 3. I also added some fresh tomatoes cut in pieces




At this time you will understand that something really good will be ready to eat in some minutes, as a fantastic aroma in the kitchen starts developing!



Garam masala

4. Add basil and garam masala, salt and pepper. The best is to add it little by little, then after a while find out what amount you want.




5. Cut cheese in pieces and give it a quick heat up in oil.



6. Add the cheese and some cream into the mix of vegetables now having developed the most fantastic connection with each other expressing a superb taste of heaven. 

I beleive that indian food many times have a mix of tastes in it that together make the whole dinner a healing gift from heaven!

Dr. Eben Alexander's Near-Death Experience


Life 

- the ongoing directly sent 
 Story of Yourself!




Sometimes Life itself brings situations that makes you start looking more inside than outside of yourself.


Thoughts about what Life is and what you feel is important for you. 

No matter what, it is a fact that we dont have all the time for making changes if we want to, 

as every single moment brings us closer to the end... 

at least the end of the part of our lifes that we are present in, right now..






Dr Eben Alexander, had a near death experience, that changed his life forever. He said that as a nerosurgeon he understands what happens to the brain when people are near death, but his own experience, made him totally change 


 This afternoon I went to Burmans Musik, and bought the latest cd of Dead can Dance 

 I couldnt think of a better chooise of music after listening to the interview.
