|What is 'our spiritual nutrition'? It's our
thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs and desires. If you're experiencing any
of the following, chances are that you're feeding yourself spiritual
"junk food" and suffering from spiritual malnutrition:
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 health care 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 can help – 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 greatly reduce the risk of several chronic diseases and could eliminate all the acts of cruelty that may have been done out of anger or hatred.
Every trip we make to the doctor or to the pharmacist is a missed opportunity to search within, and is 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 the spiritual component of 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?”
Babies 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.You 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, “free will”.
