the Power of Nutrition, come back to earth
Connection is a vital piece of what enables us to flourish in life. We need connection to nature, the people around us, and other living creatures. But while the simple act of spending time with others and in nature is a great way to connect, there is another powerful tool we should all be making use of, the connection to our food.
Food is a powerful connection to nature; it provides us the ability to promote and support our body the way mother nature intended. As with food, a practical approach to a spirituality utilizing meditation, affirmation prayer, and life-long evolving. These practices help us promote better health on a mental, physical, and spiritual level…basically, to our cellular core. Food should be enjoyed while sustaining us, benefiting many levels of our body, while also detoxing. We should incorporate many plant-based practices, adding Phyto-nutrients to our daily intake.
As we eat and enjoy a meal, we should give thanks, "This food is the gift of the whole universe, the earth, the shy, and much hard work. May we live in a way that is worthy of this food. May we transform our unskillful state of mind, especially that of greed. May we eat only foods that nourish us and prevent illness. May we accept this food for the realization of the way of understanding and love. Then we can look at the food deeply in a way that allows us to be REAL".
At the end of the day, and especially as we begin 2021, it is worthwhile to take a step back and ask how we want to enter the next phase of our lives. For many of us, our physical separation from healthy and sustainable food is and has been hindering so many people globally, causing mortality rates to elevate hindering the life that nature intended for us. Our oneness with the universe is a connection we cannot live without.
