If you’re concerned about living a healthy lifestyle, you might want to make the pursuit of spiritual mindedness a top priority.
Health is spiritual, a state of divine Mind reflected by man, the offspring of God.
Eating the right foods and exercising daily is not enough to keep one healthy. It’s spiritual mindedness that keeps one healthy.
Jesus Christ was clear on this point.
He taught, “First wash the inside of the cup and the dish, and then the outside will become clean, too”
Matthew 23:26, NLT. He was referring to the state of a person’s thinking. It was not enough to cleanse the outside of the body to stay healthy, he knew. One needed to have clean thoughts to keep the body truly clean and free of dis-eased conditions.
To stay healthy, keep your thinking healthy.
Healthy thinking is spiritual thinking.
Spiritual thinking is knowing the presence and power of God. It’s being aware of one’s spiritual individuality made in the likeness of God. It’s living true to one’s individuality as a reflection of divine Love.
It’s healthy to love. It’s unhealthy to hate. It’s healthy to be generous, kind, and thoughtful toward others. It’s unhealthy to be stingy, selfish, and callous toward one’s neighbor.
Mind governs the body. When one’s thinking reflects God’s way of thinking, the effect is very good, first on one’s thought, then on the body that is governed by that thought.
Under the influence of the divine Mind, a person will automatically engage with healthy patterns of living that manifest in a good effect.
Through the pursuit of spiritual mindedness, let divine Mind “style” your habits and patterns of living. The effect will be far better than anything you could plan out on your own through the limited knowledge of the human mind.
A healthy lifestyle, is a spiritually inspired lifestyle. Seek out how to live with God first. What to eat and what to do will follow in the perfect way for you.
