112. When Food is Your Mission
Cooking is not really my thing. But… recently I have started to enjoy watching others cook! And what I’ve noticed is that there are a lot of people who love to cook. They find it relaxing, a moment of meditation, a moment to be with themselves and empty their heads. People who enjoy cooking could just be “nature workers”. I wrote about them in my book “Why the Peace am I on Earth?”. This book has not yet been translated and published into English. This is the part I mean:
“You feel at home in nature. You pick up rubbish in the outdoors. Or you understand animals. You are in contact with Mother Earth. As a nature worker, you help nature and want to protect it. You are aware of wrongdoing in nature, such as environmental issues. You dedicate yourself to cleaning up litter, to solving animals’ problems or to stopping wrongdoing such as breeding for fur or doing unnecessary experiments on animals. You have an understanding of Mother Earth and the planet. Maybe you initiate alternatives for the depletion of oil reserves by producing new types of materials for clothing or searching for alternative sources of energy and sharing them with other people. You organize vegetable gardens and grow your own vegetables. You’ve got a green thumb and know how to take care of plants and flowers. As a nature worker, being in nature provides you with intense joy; it causes your heart to glow!
MIR-Method for nature workers
With step 9 of the MIR-Method, you slowly but surely clarify your mission. It’s a good possibility that your mission involves nature work. Your love for cooking can be the clue for this. Maybe you grow your own vegetables and have known for a long time that self-grown tomatoes taste better. Or you enjoy cutting vegetables, the various forms that vegetables have and the smells that are released when you cut them into pieces and put them into the pan. All of nature’s colors in your pan are a feast for your eyes. It’s also possible that you are an “inventor” and particularly like experimenting. In any case, people whose mission is food, can do wonderful things with it. Who knows, maybe you recognize yourself in it!
And how about you? Are you a nature worker who likes working with food? Do you see any other possibilities for your mission? I’d love to hear about it!
Please write about it below. Thank you!
Personal questions should always be asked of a MIR-Method coach!
My wish for you is that you find great pleasure in working with natural foods!

I am so loving your article(s) – especially this one! And I enjoyed reading all of the fellow lovers of farmers market and home grown care people. I too am an earth momma and love to help we’re I can and I enjoy making delightful meals for those who have had a change of dietary needs as I have fantastic solutions that help me know to how replace the allergic type foods and/or unhealthy processed factory food. Thank you dear for sharing this. I just now finished a scone I make out of garbanzo beans with no sugar, eggs, dairy or wheat – a recipe gifted to me from the eithers.
I enjoy preparing & cooking my own meals. There’s a v addictive aroma from fried garlic & prawns. All the senses are involved in healthy eating & although I occasionally eat out it’s very satisfying to sit down & thoroughly enjoy what you’ve just prepared. I started doing the MIR method in last week- some nights I forget to fo the sequence. Its a v positive affirming routine & I do believe it helps lessen pain & negative energy building up in the body. Thank u Mir for your inspirational messages
I have a passion for produce!!!
Sometimes, when I go to a particularly vibrant market, especially an outdoor one where there are vegetables and luscious fruit being offered by farmers and lovely wholesome looking people who live close to the land, offering me their food grown with good honest hands, I feel so very happy. Looking at everything, taking in the scents and colors. tasting, touching, smiling, talking with the farmers, it fills me up with life force, prana – I feel the energy of the life in the food and I almost swoon and go weak in the knees. I find it so intoxicating! Because this is life in my hands, pulsating in harmony with the Cosmos. It is very powerful amd beautiful and YES!!! It makes me feel happy and joyful!
Sounds like a wonderful food mission, eh!? You got me drooling, describing that heavenly love-grown food!
Thanks for sharing!

So my mission definitely has to do with food and nature. With animals, often lost, with plants that I buy half price as they are almost dying and I revive them. And yes …. food must be a joy for your eyes and your nose. Without the smell, you cannot taste your food. In an Ayurvedic sense, food is divine and healthy when it combines all 6 tastes. So vegetables and herbs and spices must be combined to make sure you have all these tastes in a meal. I did grow my own vegetables and it was really fun. Especially when one day I discovered a bright orange round pumkin high in my olive tree… But for the last couple of years, Jose is growing ecological vegetables for his living, So I buy from him. And of course, when he needs help, I am there planting with him. A couple of weeks ago, some other friends and me helped him plant over 3000 white sweet onions and I really had a lot of fun helping out and getting my hands dirty in the earth. I sure am a nature worker and love it.
Yes, I recognize myself, just love food, both cooking and eating! I only use mostly organic ingredients. It makes such a difference. As I live in an apartment I don’t have much space but have lots of delicious herbs growing on the window sill and also different plants. Also care very much about nature. I am also at therapist and work with healing and use crystals which come from the earth, flower essences…. Just love reading all your blogs, keep them coming…
