Food For The Soul

Guest Author - Linda Heywood

The mind desires nourishment for its emotional and intellectual well-being. The body must have food to keep it strong and healthy. The soul too needs food to keep it vigorous and vibrant.

So what is food for the soul?

The soul receives its sustenance by connecting with the Higher Being, who inspires and energises so that we can live fulfilling lives. Nourishment for the soul is praying to and imploring the Designer of all creatures to keep us safe and righteous.

The soul does not need nutrients or calories to survive. The soul needs physical contact with its Creator. By praying and meditating we can connect to that higher plane and the soul is fed accordingly.

Food for the soul does not come in packets nor is it pre-cooked. It has to be pursued just like food for the body and the mind. The soul is not fed automatically. The mind and the body have to work together to generate soul food.

"We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." ~ Carlos Castaneda

Finding a purpose in life is essential. There is no use in just living day by day without ever moving forward or reaching a goal. Settling for second best is not an option. By always being the best person you can be leaves you free from negative and pointless emotions such as guilt or hate or fear. It is not an easy task but it is achievable. Set your standards and do not allow yourself to fall below them. If you do not expect the best from yourself, no one else is going to either.

Devote yourself to some quiet time to contemplate and envisage the life ahead. Do not spend too much time considering the past or the future as nothing can be done to change either. Live your life in the present. Keep yourself in the moment and your thoughts and actions will be in your control.

All human beings are connected. Our souls intermingle, along with our bodies, with every other soul on the planet. Our souls are ancient from another dimension unseen by our human eyes. Our souls will return to that dimension when our bodies and minds no longer function on this plane.

We should all worry about our own souls, for no one else can accomplish this task for us. Our souls are as much our responsibility as our minds and our bodies. If we neglect our souls the balance of life is incomplete.

Here are three little words to remember and by saying them we are not being selfish. We are simply reminding ourselves that we are a whole person who encompasses a body, a mind and a soul.

Me, myself and I.

Appreciate the moment.

We drop like pebbles into the ponds of each other's souls, and the orbit of our ripples continues to expand, intersecting with countless others. ~ Joan Borysenko
