Everyone eats and gets eaten!

Everyone knows that our physical bodies will become “worm food” after we die. Little attention is given to whom or to what we will feed in that other world beyond this one.

The same bio-laws apply in both natural and spiritual realms!

Reality is kept together by sharing (through an exchange of energies). Or more organically speaking, everything holds itself together by eating. This desired unity is why so many religions and countries have annual festivals or feasts. This is why the Lord had His “Last Supper” with His disciples—to share something with His faithful followers that could feed body and soul. Human hearts and minds are held together by their shared beliefs. When we share our love and thoughts with others, we literally feed each other’s inner spirit.

But Jesus challenged His disciples to digest His offerings on a deeper and more profound level. For instance, when we eat terrestrial food the digestive system breaks it down to its essential constituents. Then these essential elements are synthesized into substances needed for the human body to function.

Similarly, the human mind and spirit can digest ideas—like the Lord’s teaching.   When we give value to God’s tenets we can derive deeper spiritual revelations from the message needed for the proper function of our souls. Furthermore, these deeper spiritual ideas then begin to act like angelic enzymes that get at the essential constituents and principles that make up our true inner being and its quality.

As we eat spiritual food, we become food for—and incorporated into—heaven!

This spiritual digestive process determines our eternal fate. Rejecting God’s tenets turns us into a “food” that cannot be assimilated into the body of heaven and must therefore be cast out like poop (where one becomes food for a less desirable community).

So, what are we making our deepest, inner life appetizing to? What kind of reality would find our deepest thoughts and feelings delicious?

    Pooped out of heaven? Now there’s an intriguing image. Wonder what He uses for toilet paper?

      I am glad you find the organic arrangement of the spiritual world intriguing. Even If you were to consider me as being “full of shit” you would just be confirming the premise of my blog article. Any time we reject another person’s ideas we treat it as brain “poop.” The physical world and all its processes are an analog (correspondence) of the phenomena in the Spiritual World.

      Spiritually yours,
