Many people spend a considerable amount of time thinking about what food they are going to eat. To make wise decisions, it’s important that taking in spiritual food is at the top of one’s list of desires!
Spiritual food is the most important food of all. A knowledge of Truth, the inspiration of Soul, wisdom and love coming from God, are what feed consciousness with healthy and fit images of thought, and in turn, keep the body in good health.
The human body is human consciousness. If consciousness is filled with fear, worry, anxiety, and doubt about food choices, the body it governs reflects the discord and dismay thought signals to it.
Thought fed by Truth and Love, makes wise decisions. It is not influenced by selfish want, gluttony, blind impulse, or ignorance. It makes decisions that reflect the intelligence and wisdom of divine Mind. It is a peaceful state of thought that manifests balance, sensible reason and sound logic.
Divine Mind does not need to know the nutritional make up of material food to influence our thought into wise decision-making. Divine Mind knows what is best for us, and always steers our thought in a healthy direction. When we humbly listen for divine direction, the voice of wisdom will guide our decision-making, and we’ll make choices that feel good and produce a good result.
Jesus Christ taught, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied” (Matthew 5:6, RSV). Righteousness is right thinking, spiritual thinking. When we seek a spiritually inspired state of thought before we seek food to put into our mouth, we’ll have a state of thought that is at peace with God. It will be calm, poised, under control, and ready to make intelligent decisions.
Real fulfillment, satisfaction, and contentment are not products of what we eat, but of what we think. Fill thought with spiritual truth first, and anxieties about physical food will disappear, along with any negative side effects associated with it.
