Enlightenment comes in many forms. We say, “to each their own” and at Guru’s you can get one step closer to your illuminating jackpot by embarking on your journey with a belly full of healthy, affordably priced gourmet foods.
Besides the delicious nourishment that will come from dining with us, we offer these glances at the elements of living so that you might better understand and appreciate the enlightenment the universe offers you.
NURTURE THE EARTH
Earth is a perfect balance of masculine and feminine character with inward, centering motions and stabilizing energy. Earth represents patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, and hard work. Earth seeks to nurture and draw all things together.
IGNITE THE FIRE
Fire is masculine in character with upward motion and expansive energy. Fire governs the heart, tongue and pulse. The qualities associated with fire are strength, dynamism and persistence. Fire is associated with the color red and red is associated with extreme luck.
STIR THE WATER
Water is feminine in character with downward motion and still, conserved energy. Water represents intelligence, wisdom, softness and flexibility. Water can be weak and fluid but can also wield great power when it floods. Water is associated with darkness and the moon.
ENERGIZE THE WIND
As the life force that carries spiritual energy, air is part of every living thing that exists. We say, “keep it clean, keep it flowing.”
OPEN THE HEAVENS
Abundant and varied conceptions exist to explain heaven but it is generally construed that heaven is a place of eternal happiness. Kind of like Guru’s but without the eternal part.
PURIFY THE SPIRIT
Having no physical qualities such as heat, cold, wet or dry, spirit is incapable of change (excepting location) and moves in a circular pattern. Spirit is divine air and purely essential to happiness and enlightenment.
