Spiritual Food

If a woman could see the sparks of light going forth from her fingertips when she is cooking, and the substance of light that goes into the food she handles, she would be amazed to see how much of herself she charges into the meals that she prepares for her family and friends. It is one of the most important and least understood activities of life, that the radiation and feeling that go into the preparation of food affect everyone who partakes of it. And this activity should be unhurried, peaceful and happy because the substance of the lifestream performing the service flows into that food and is eaten, and actually becomes part of the energy of the receiver.

That substance starts with the way we farm---the farmer that farms with wisdom and love for the land, the dairyman that farms with love for his animals, the cheesemaker who makes the cheese with the love of her craft, the baker who bakes with the love of the final product, the beverage maker who makes the type of delicious and nutritious beverage that I would like to see come to this nation. That energy goes into the food and when it is eaten by the receiver actually blesses the receiver.

That is why the advanced spiritual teachers of the East never eat food prepared by anyone other than their own chelas (disciples). The person preparing the food may be the only one in the household who is spiritually advanced (this is often the case). An active charge of happiness, purity and peace will pour forth into the food from him, and this pours forth into the other members of the family and blesses them. There are more ways than one of allowing the Spirit of God to enter the flesh of man. So I hope that from what I have shown you, you will turn away from godless food.

Someone from the family needs to get back in the kitchen. It doesn't mean you have to spend hours in the kitchen, but you need to spend some time in the kitchen preparing food with love, food that has been grown with love and prepared with wisdom and love. If no one in the family has time to go into the kitchen and prepare food, you need to sit down and rethink how you are spending your time because there is simply no other way to get nourishing foods into our children. The situation is really very critical. If we don't return to good eating practices one mouth at a time, one meal at a time, one farm at a time, preparing our own food and preparing it properly, there is not going to be another generation. Thank you very much.

There has got to be a submission in there somewhere. I just don't have the time to mess with it.

In Chinese culture, there is a concept of wok hei, which literally translated is "breath of the wok."  Hei is another form of the word ki, which is that classic Oriental monk spiritual source of power.  Foods that have good wok hei are said to be better for one's spirit (and of course better in taste) than those that lack it.  Perhaps a whole school of magic could exist that deals with the preparation and consumption of food.

And, of course, there is the ancient egyptian practice of preparing sumptuous meals for the gods.  Of course, the gods only ate the spiritual element of the food, and the priests were burdened with getting rid of the food on the material plane. 

For "getting rid of", read "Eating".  Maybe it wasn't so much of a burden after all.
