Physical, psychic and spiritual dimensions
June 18th 2018
The matter that makes up the food we eat every day is given to us by the four elements – earth, water, air and fire. We are thus nourished by particles of matter that come from space, from the whole universe even. They come to us filled with cosmic life, and it is important for us to receive these particles with the awareness that they will make up the substance of our physical body and our psychic bodies. We must therefore be extremely vigilant, for not only is this food imbued with universal life, it is also imbued with our words, feelings and thoughts. People who eat in an agitated state, in a bad mood, or while criticizing others, infuse the food with poisonous particles, and in eating them, they poison themselves. So thought also has a part to play during meals. It is through thought that we can introduce elements of light and eternity into our food.
