Watermelon is one of America’s all-time favorite foods. You can find it at almost every summer picnic or outdoor party and in the produce section of most food markets. The average American eats about 15 pounds of watermelon a year.

Although many people think of watermelon as a fruit, it is also considered a vegetable by some.

With a name like watermelon, it’s no wonder the melon is 92 percent water. So in addition to providing a sweet treat, watermelon can be a source of fluids for young athletes before, during and after sporting events. This doesn’t mean you should substitute it for water and sports drinks on the playing field. You still need to have those drinks nearby.

Nutritional value

Watermelon has zero saturated fat, is low in sodium and cholesterol free. Because of its high water content, watermelon is also low in calories. A good food for dieters!

It is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C as well as potassium. Two cups of diced watermelon provides 20 percent of the recommended daily intake for vitamin A and 25 percent for vitamin C. In fact, the United States Department of Agriculture’s 2005 Dietary Guidelines recommends we include two cups of fruit per day in our daily diet.

Lycopene, a potential antioxidant found in watermelon, may have disease-fighting benefits. Researchers believe lycopene might have a role in the prevention of some diseases, such as forms of cancer and heart disease. There are about 15 to 20 milligrams (mg) of lycopene in a two-cup serving of watermelon, compared to 4 to 5 mg found in one tomato.

He who lives the inner life knows that death is truly his resting-room. To him, death is anything but extinction. It is a meaningful departure. When our consciousness is divinely transformed, the necessity of death will not arise at all. To transform life, we need Peace, Light, Bliss and Power. We cry for these divine qualities. They cry for our aspiration. They are equally anxious to grant us everlasting life. But until our body, vital, mind, heart and soul aspire together, the divine Power, Light, Bliss and Peace cannot possess us.

Among all the spiritual paths that the world offer, Ayahuasca a teacher plant, is one of the surest ways for people to gain a deeper understanding, knowledge and wisdom of one’s inner life path.

“History teaches us that there are rhythms in transformation patterns that can be seen, understood, and made usable and teachable to others. Be it a 12 step or 8 shield model , a Channunpa or an Ayahuasca ceremony, transformational methods can provide encouragement to help remove illusions, and take us deeper into understanding ourselves, then it is a useful tool.”

Bitter orange is used in a wide variety of traditions. In Mexico and South America the leaf is used as a tonic, laxative, sedative for insomnia and to calm frazzled nerves. Bitter orange has a complex chemical makeup, though it is perhaps known best for the volatile oil in the peel.

The juice of bitter orange is also used in many local food dishes of the Yucatan region of Mexico. I recently had this salsa, a flavorful mixture of the following ingredients.
We ate it on fresh corn tortillas with black beans. Outstanding flavor!

1 red onion, minced
1 serrano chili, seeded and minced
10 radishes, minced
1 lime, juiced
1 bitter orange, juiced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
salt to taste
