Communicating with nature as we eat

Through nutrition we come into contact with nature, and this contact can be made in different ways. For example, you take an apple, peel it, cut it into pieces and eat it: this gives you a particular sensation. If you bite straight into the apple, you have a different sensation. Now, go into an orchard, pull the branch of an apple tree towards you, and start biting into an apple without picking it: what a difference! You can feel how alive the fruit is, and you experience a sense of plenitude and joy, which the tree itself is communicating to you, because it is linked to the earth and to the sky and draws forces from both. While you are eating, you are in direct contact with a current of pure energies. Through its fruit, the tree has put you directly in contact with the universe.

Eating with love

When you hold a piece of fruit for a moment, it receives the heat of your hand and becomes warmer. So why would your love not influence it as well? When you hold a piece of fruit lovingly, not only does its temperature rise slightly, but it also takes the warmth of your heart into its aura. In this way you adjust the piece of fruit to your internal inner temperature and then it becomes well disposed towards you. So remember, before eating a piece of fruit, hold it for a moment in your hand, and ask it to open up to you. This will transform its etheric matter and it will bring you much more than just physical energy. It will allow you to participate in its life and in the life of everything in nature that took part in its formation and gave it colour, perfume and flavour.

Miraculous powers of love- effective meditation

When first setting out in the spiritual life, most people encounter a first obstacle: they are unable to meditate because they do not know how to concentrate. Why? First, because they have not learned how to choose subjects for meditation; they throw themselves into it blindly, with no method. The first rule is to choose a subject of a spiritual nature, and the second, a subject that is something heartfelt. The love you have for a person or an object is what attaches you to him or it. When you do not love, you are, if I dare say so, like a stamp without glue: you will not stick! Beginners make the mistake of wanting to concentrate right away on the most abstract, philosophical and mystical matters: truth, eternity, infinity, the Absolute, or the supreme Being… Begin instead by concentrating, for example, on a pure, beautiful image that you love, an image of nature or art. In this way, your brain will become accustomed to concentrating, and gradually you will be able to meditate on …

Be patient and you will live a long life

Be patient and you will live a long life. You might say, ‘But that is not possible, you need so much energy to put up with difficult situations and with difficult people!’ No, on the contrary, you waste the most energy when you are impatient. Calm and patience enhance vitality and prolong life. People who explode and then say, ‘Ah! That feels better!’ do not realize that what they consider to be better is actually a great loss. They should analyse themselves to find out what it is within them that feels better – is it their higher nature or their lower nature? And when they reflect on their explosion a little later, do they really feel pleased with themselves? Don’t they tell themselves it would have been better if they had known how to control themselves? Try experimenting within yourself to see how effective the virtue of patience is. Instead of resorting to all sorts of syrups, potions, elixirs and other beverages, drink patience! That is what will renew the powers of life within …

A meal is a magic ceremony

“A meal is a magic ceremony, thanks to which the food entering your body is transformed not only into health and strength but also into love and light. So you must pay attention to your inner state when you sit down to eat. Haven’t you noticed that when you eat in a state of anger or rebellion it takes you hours to regain your peace. Why? Because through your thoughts and feelings you had a negative influence on the food, which then sustains your negative feelings. Everything in life is sacred; everything has a meaning. Nature’s intelligence prepared food in order to sustain life in us. If you introduce toxic vibrations into the food which has been prepared by the intelligences of nature to maintain your life force, you will pay for this negligence and lack of respect in one way or another. Your inner state present while eating is recorded somewhere in your body, and this state determines your physical and spiritual health.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov     The Yoga of Nutrition More on …

Love at a distance- subtle energies and essences

“Sometimes you meet a being to whom you feel immediately attracted. This person is like a vase filled with a precious essence that plunges you into a state of wonder; they inspire you, broaden your horizons and reveal the beauty of heaven and earth to you. Thank the Lord for having met this person, and if you want your joy to last for a long time, try to keep some distance. Why? Because the space between two people, which may appear empty, is actually filled with subtle essences which are the best conductors of psychic energy; it is this space that makes exchanges of harmony and light possible. As long as there is a certain distance between you and the person you love, you can exchange energy, thanks to which you energise each other. Each time you meet, you will leave each other fulfilled, pervaded by an extraordinary happiness because keeping this distance creates the best conditions for communication between you. If you really take this advice and try to apply it, your life will …
