||What is our spiritual nutrition?
It's our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs
How can we tell if we're feeding ourselves
spiritual "junk food"? If any of the
following are happening for you, then you may be
suffering from spiritual malnutrition:
- chronic pain
- repeated failures
- always feeling like
If you want to change
your reality, start by changing your spiritual diet.
here to take the first step
Until we start looking after our spiritual
health by reducing and refining our negative thoughts, attitudes and emotions,
we will become ever more reliant upon Medicine; turning to “holistic” healing
practices for remedies is no different. Doing so means we are avoiding the
truth: we are responsible for the condition of our health. As long as we deny
this truth, we will see healthcare systems around the world beset with
ever-worsening conditions, and our physical health will continue to deteriorate
in spite of best intentions, efforts and practices by Medicine. Don’t get me
wrong – medicine works – but we can eliminate the need for much of it. Imagine
the burden of pain and expense that could be eased even if only one of every 10
people were to forgive those who had harmed them. Just that one small change
could eliminate all the acts of cruelty they may have done out of anger and
trip we make to the doctor or to the pharmacist is a missed opportunity to
search within, and a denial of our innate ability to communicate with our
companion / teacher guide: far better to resolve our spiritual issues. Each and
every painful human experience that is followed by blaming bad spirits or bad
luck, blaming anything or anyone instead of looking within ourselves;
contributes to making the situation even worse and simply delays the
inevitable: We must clean up our act; more specifically, we must clean up our own act.
You may be thinking, “Well, maybe you’re
right - maybe chronic diseases can be healed by improving our thoughts; but what about babies who are born with
congenital defects? What about people who have accidents? What about people who
are victims of crime? What about war?”
As Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
sang, “…teach your parents well…”
We are born into this world to illustrate, in physical, the spiritual
condition of the family into which we come. We do so willingly, as the
Universal Intelligence offers us this opportunity so that we may be of service,
so that we may teach, and most of all, so that we may learn.
Accidents So-called accidents are not random happenings. They occur to create
specific learning opportunities. At this point in human evolution though, many
of these opportunities are missed due to our not seeking spiritual
understanding of the lesson.
Victims of crime Victims of crime are victims only of unawareness of their spiritual state
of being and their constantly repeated, yet usually unheard, thoughts. The
Universal Intelligence enables the physical experience to happen, to serve as a
wake-up call. Many hear the call and make significant improvement in their
lives; many more do not. Those who do and who share their experiences are as a
shining beacon unto humanity.
War War is a physical manifestation of spiritual anger, despair and fear on a
massive scale. It erupts/occurs only once a specific energy threshold has been
breached. It is never the result of just one person.
may be thinking though, “Surely our thoughts are not causing these things! Surely something else – maybe the devil – is
responsible!” Well, since there is no such thing or creature as “the devil”,
clearly there must be something else at work to create these horrific
happenings. There is, and it is called,
