Podcast #59: Wabi-Sabi – Embracing Imperfection In A Vegan Diet

June 19, 2019

Today, I want to encourage the pursuit of imperfection. 

It is called wabi-sabi, and accepting imperfection is the fundamental principal. 

That does not mean to embrace failure. It means to embrace learning and to be willing not to get it entirely right. 

“Wabi means simplicity, humility, and living in tune with nature. It describes someone content with little and makes the most of whatever they have.

“Sabi” refers to transience, beauty, and authenticity of age. The term has its roots in Buddhism but eventually evolved into a distinctly Japanese ideal.

The Japanese tradition of wabi-sabi offers an inspiring new way to look at your entire life. It celebrates cracks, crevices and rot and all other marks that time and weather leave behind.

Wabi-Sabi & A Vegan Diet

So what does this have to do with a vegan diet?

Because eating vegan is not about being perfect. And I never want to perpetuate that. 

There is no such thing as a perfect human or a perfect vegan.

It is time to celebrate and accept the beauty of imperfection of a vegan diet through wabi-sabi. 

Always remember; when nothing is certain, everything is possible.

Organically grown, non-GMO, vegan, pure CBD Oil made from hemp is available from Ordinary Vegan.

The Endocannabiniod System (ECS) is a self-regulating system of receptors that are located throughout the entire body. These receptors work in a lock & key relationship.

This vital system is primarily focused on supporting balance (homeostasis) in the body. If the ECS is not functioning correctly, additional nutrition may be necessary for proper support.

That is where CBD oil comes in. It balances and enhances the endocannabiniod system.

Ordinary Vegan's pure CBD oil is tested for the highest purity and potency.

Hope it can help you.
