Ramana Maharshi.✨Let's try and connect to our true nature and express our infinite potential to serve our community instead of acting from the limited perspective of personhood.🍂 Autumn Honey Fig: A similar variety to the well known Brown Turkey, these lesser known figs have a much thinner skin and are somewhat sweeter.
