“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.”
