“There was a time when I was craving the orgasm, and then at some point it clicked and I started to crave the intimacy, the deeper connection. You get beyond the ego and you start to live from the heart. With food it is the same, you get outside of these immediate cravings for instant gratifications. When I think about sprouts, it’s this intimate relationship with this living force of energy, that’s in those seeds that contain the endosperm, the embryo, and all of the energy it needs to take a dry seed and grow into a vegetable!”
