Eating For Spiritual Growth
I believe that one of our primary reasons for being on this planet is to align with our potential and our life’s purpose. I see that more and more people are awakening to this potential. If we’re motivated to want to awaken to ease the suffering of the world and we’re consciously working towards this awakening, we need a solid foundation; our body ought to be strong, as well as our mind and spirit. We need to to cleanse our body so that we can have a pure vessel to channel the Divine life-force energy that comes through us and allows us to focus on the sacred work that needs to be done here.
When we learn to have a harmonious relationship to food it no longer consumes our energy ..as it does when we struggle with food and weight, and in fact it frees up our energy because we stop wrestling with it. It no longer depletes us, but energizes us. In so doing, the fundamental nature of our relationship to food transforms into one that we enjoy, allowing us to turn to more important things in our lives, like working towards our highest potential, and doing the things that we love.
This is one very important reason we need to know where our food comes from. If you eat meat, where does it come from? How are those animals treated? Where does your dairy/eggs come from? How are those animals treated? When we eat the flesh of an animal who has been raised in misery, perhaps her baby was taken from her (dairy/veal cows) or perhaps they have not been able to move or even see the light of day! The extent of animal cruelty that is out in our world is shameful, and needs to be exposed.
The food we eat, and the energy that is attached to that food BECOMES A PART OF US. It's how our cells are created. The energy that is in that food becomes enmeshed with our energy, and we take on the energy of that plant, or animal, or egg, or brownie, or french fries. So be very cautious and careful about what you put on your fork, because that food will shape who you are.
