Spiritual Food…What Is Your Fuel?

Spiritual Food…

What fuels your spirit?

What is your breakfast…lunch…and dinner of spirit?

What fuel or food do you take in which feeds your spirit?

We know what fuels the body…

We know we must eat to live…not live to eat…yet so many of us live to eat.

We are like kids in a candy store!  The “foodies” among us are generally gourmets in our own right…and we live to eat…despite the fact that what sends our taste buds to the moon we delight in the journey to the point of overdoing it in consumption because it tastes so good!  We know we shouldn’t…we know that for some of us our weight will “wear” what we eat…and for some of us we may suffer health issues…however, that piece of chocolate cake, or that extra helping of fries gives us that ”devil-may-care” attitude and we convince ourselves that we’ll deal with the physical consequences of our gastronomic indulgences…later.

So what consequences result in regards to spiritually overindulging in what we “feed” our spirits?

The greatest examples of spiritual consumption of fuels and foods that work contrary to the spirit is what we’ve witnessed in the last four years in the form of Trump…his GOP…his supporters…

They chose to feed their spirits Lies instead of Truth…

Hatred… instead of Love…

Violence… instead of Peace…

Suppression… instead of Freedom…

Division… instead of Unity…

Cruelty… instead of Compassion…

Selfishness… instead of Humanitarianism…

Anger… instead of Levelheadedness…

Delusion… instead of Reality…

Absolute Power… instead of Democracy…

Eventually, the continual ingesting of these foods and fuels to the spirit will result in the demise of the spirit… Nothing good can ever emerge from evil… and only good…can deliver from evil….

Should we find ourselves walking down the path of evil…by feeding our spirits with foods and fuels that are not in sync with nourishing, lifting and enlightening our spirits to the highest level of humility, humanity…and love…we must step back and observe what is going on around us…and within us…and ask, “Am I contributing to my highest good which connects to all those around me…including the well-being of the planet? Or am I connecting with the darkest abominations of my spirit…and casting those monstrosities upon the world in destruction of humanity and the planet?”

Observe the chaos in our country and the world…take note of the “plagues” in the form of a mutating virus which gives minuscule signs of hope…only to take away that hope in delivering perhaps more devastation upon humanity…because there are those who choose to feed their spirits rebellion and defiance…rather than comply to social distancing and mask wearing to save themselves…and their fellow humans…

Look at the changing weather patterns due to the mistreatment of our planet through the quest for material gain in destroying the environment…and our atmosphere…. by drilling and sucking the life out of the planet…and releasing gases into the air that we breathe…and eating the foods and fueling the mind with denial…and “natural occurrences” rhetoric that takes place every 100 years or so…

After centuries and decades of ingesting and releasing spiritual pollutants…we are witnessing the results.

We must change what we feed and how we fuel our spirits…

Those of us who understand and are working on maintaining our diets of spiritual intake with positive and enlightening energies must continue to forge forward in our practices… We must encourage those who are working to get on and stay on the path of nourishing their spirits and the spirits of others with “good and healthy” foods and fuels…and increase in number and voice to counteract those who choose to continue to overindulge in satiating their bottomless, spiritual appetites for corruptible and egregious foods and fuels.

We will prevail if we stay the course…beginning with addressing the spiritual fallout that has left our country in a state of disarray and chaos…

Compromise only leads to eventual backsliding and succumbing to temptation…

Lead us not into temptation…

Take our daily bread…

Deliver us from evil…

By the way of the Spirit…

Manna from Heaven…

And our spiritual food and fuel…

Of Truth…..

We cannot afford to wait until later…

We cannot put off tomorrow…what can be done today…right now…

Every moment that goes by…

Our spirits hunger…

There are no substitutions…

Take in what is good…

And feed your spirit.

Messages…

Messages…

Sometimes without consciously knowing why…we are sent messages…messages to be shared that can change one life…or change millions…sometimes we receive messages that convey to us that there are forces at work that we just can’t conceive really as existing…until we are sent a message…

On July 1, 1991, I was in Germany…I laid down to sleep that night…I wrote a poem the next day…recalling the dream I had that night…I would like to share it with you now…

“Light of Love”

Another Light went out today…

The Lord, He called him home to stay…

This Light was truly special, you see…

He came in Love, and gave endlessly.

Born an only child with a negative start

He turned his life around with his lightness of heart

He learned to laugh by taking it all in stride…

And won the hearts of millions…

By letting them look inside…

He used his humanness to tell poignant stories…

Tales of Prejudice…Courage…and ultimate glories…

He cherished the union of family…

Extending this warmth to include you and me.

This beautiful spirit will be missed by all…

His courage and strength, will forever stand tall.

I fell asleep last night, not knowing his fate…

And we laughed and chatted…walking towards Heaven’s Gate…

He spoke of Dan Blocker with mischief and fondness in his eyes…

Recalling many pranks…and friendship ties…

After strolling memory lane, Victor French came by…

I told Victor would take him the rest of his way…

I could not take him…Right here, I had to stay…

As they walked the Highway to Heaven…I watched…and cried…

It was then I knew…Michael Landon had died…

The morning of July 2, 1991, I was actually in the car with some friends, on the way to Berlin, when the international news came on, and the announcer said, “Michael Landon lost his battle with cancer last night…He was 54…”I felt a cold chill go down my back… I remembered thinking all the while we were together, “What’s going on here? Why am I walking with Michael Landon? Why is he chattering so, and why are we walking through this neighborhood, with him pointing out Dan Blocker’s home, and telling me these stories?” Perhaps it was the Universe giving me a bird’s eye view into life after death…that nothing dies…just changes.

Here we are again…back to “changes.”

Messages are powerful streams of consciousness…opening our vision to the vastness of what IS…

Nothing is beyond the realm of possibility… We must learn to see that…and believe it.

We can change our world…We can create a “better.”  A better that extends itself to everyone…from beginnings initiated by you…and me…

What messages have you received that you can transfer to yourself and the world, to create and make a change for…”The Better?”

What gem has the Universe sent your way that can make a world of difference? Take a moment and reflect what has passed before you today…something that you may have missed…due to your indifference…or self-absorption…something, that would make a difference in one life…or millions.

Play back the tape in your mind…there is a message or two…that went over your head…where if you were to recall the events of your day…it would be right there…waiting…like an open book…offering its wisdom…knowledge…and healing…

Welcome the messages…you were chosen as the vessel of “Messenger.”

Release the message…become the “Deliverer” to one life…or…millions…

Sleep on it….

a day
