Giving and Acceptance
Macrobiotics encompasses not only our choice of food, but the attitudes with which we approach life. George Ohsawa has guided us to accept everything with the greatest pleasure and thanks and give everything with the greatest pleasure and gratitude. Give and give without mental reservation. Real giving means depriving oneself of something that is most precious, most necessary and most important. Your ability to accept everything and to give everything is your yardstick, your private thermometer that will always reveal to you alone the true state of your health.
