Feeding Body and Soul

thissel

Food for our bodies
and some for the soul.
Each must be pure
for us to thrive.
Feed not with that
which harms for delicate
is this vessel
shaping itself
with what it consumes
until it becomes
what it imbibes.

    Perfect timing! Just yesterday I was listening to a talk by Thich Nhat Hanh, the Zen Buddhist monk, on this very topic. He was pointing out that we take in a lot more than just food. Everything we sense, from TV and magazines to which blogs we choose to read, all nourish us or have toxins.
    I consider your blog one of my healthiest and uplifting sources. Thanks.
