What I love about chocolate
The cacao god is a frisky rascal who was sent to planet earth to provide the perfect panacea to heal humanity. Chocolate dilates our hearts and minds and makes us more loving and playful, offering us endless experiences of sublime synchronicities. Chocolate is the divine dilator, opening us up in order to give us access to the highest states of conceivable consciousness (no wonder the Mayans grasped with clarity the cosmic Intelligence).
Cacao is the most sacred substance in our solar system and perhaps beyond. The cacao bean contains within it, cosmic Intelligence of the highest order. Chocolate is the “fruit of the gods” (theobroma) therefore a divine fruit whose seeds (the cacao beans) contain within them, the wisdom of pure, unconditional love. Chocolate is intimately connected to our sun/star for it embodies warmth and brightness, which is why eating chocolate makes us shine with love’s light; it makes our minds more lucid and our hearts sweeter. Chocolate is universally adored and therefore can be seen as a groovy glue that connects us all through the shared jubilatory pleasures it generously offers our body, mind and soul.
I willfully worship chocolate as a delicious and divine entity that unites the sensual with the sacred. Eating raw chocolate cultivates our humanity, making us into better, more beautifully bouyant human beans.
Honorable Mention ENTRIES
All these entries are fabulous... enjoy!
I love chocolate. I love the way it melts in my mouth and releases its symphony of flavor. I love the way it blankets me with a warm glow and mellows my spirit. I love to savor its goodness at the end of a busy day; my cares melting away as the chocolate becomes one with me. Chocolate is nourishing and healing; sustaining and enlightening. It is a precious gift bestowed upon us by the universe, requiring reverence, respect, and gratitude. There is something inherently divine about pure, raw cacao. It is mineral-rich, decadent, antioxidant-laden and aromatic. Stone-ground and combined with natural sweeteners and medicinal herbs, it becomes an ethereal elixir for the soul, creamy and complex. Any company can create chocolate candy with machines and chemicals, but there is only one chocolate which is created with pure intent and love. There is only one chocolate worthy of sanctification. There is only one chocolate that I extol and I feel truly blessed for having consumed: Sacred Chocolate. Thank you for your wonderful products and for sharing the gift of chocolate nirvana with the world. Namasté,

with Reverence for our ancient roots
Cacao helps me to remember
Floating, Flying, Rising above.
I remember finally finding Home
in some mountains in the sky
Pacific Coast had called me close---
& there I was, with a mug full of home-brewed chocolate,
steeped with chili peppers;
I found myself fireside & safely snuggling
with my tribe, at last....
We sip ceremonially
Under a blanket of stars.
Cacao helps me to remember
that God's most potent medicine
easily makes its way to the tip of my tongue
& in Joy I celebrate the bittersweetness.
I let my roots dive deep To meet the core of the Earth;
& I am learning that Home
is not a distant place which I must keep seeking
Home is inside my Heart, inside my Soul---
Home is everywhere I go.
bliss & Blesssss +alana
do they have chocolate in heaven?
9) Felicity Telesnicki
Why do I love chocolate? aside from the amazing aroma, flavour, lovely blissful feelings and nourishment it provides - quite simply my favourite thing has got to be the cacao induced hilarity that ensues after eating chocolate.
My aunt is my partner in crime with this - she is a chocoholic, frequently found eating some type of chocolate. whenever I bring any cacao around her - she simply holds out her hand and exclaims "hit me!".
I must share the tale of the day we had been sharing some cacao beans, when she proceeded to tell me how she had applied to work at the Hershey factory. no more than five minutes later, the TV on in the other room announced the Wheel of Fortune puzzle as "WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY". ah, signs from the universe.
the attached photos show that a job at the Hershey factory would be very appropriate for her - as she is secretly an oompa loompa in disguise. that or Willy Wonka herself. the photo which reveals this was snapped on a whim with no intention towards what it became - taken on one of the many days we were joyfully under the influence of cacao - but clearly, it was meant to happen. just one fine example of the spirit of cacao. of course, there are many more...
10) Chaya-Ryvka Chocolate Speaks
Original Poem by Chaya-Ryvka Diehl
The voice of chocolate is subtle yet bold,
This poem came to me while I was immersed in chocolate confection making. I have always loved chocolate – but through working directly with it in its raw form and manipulating it to become sweet and silky edible love notes I became truly attuned to and aware of its living spirit and soul. The respect I gained while learning how to temper became even more manifold as I realized that it is not us that manipulate the cacao, but the spirit of the cacao that guides us – if we listen. It is medicine that calls the medicine out of the maker and feeds the spirit of those who indulge.
