FOUR KINDS OF NOURISHMENT
1. Everybody, without exception, requires nourishment. Organic, healthy food and drink nourishes all of our being. If we keep going to the refrigerator or become addicted to junk food, this creates health, weight problems and self-blame. We eat mindfully leaving space in the stomach for the food to convert to energy.
2. Happiness through all the senses – what we see, hear, smell, taste and touch. This happiness does not require ownership of the object. Happiness comes to our eyes and ears through what we read or hear including about ourselves. We feel nourished through such contact.
3. Intention/Aspiration/Acts of Kindness/Creativity. We find enjoyment in healthy initiatives. Our intentions can benefit people, animals and the environment as well as ourselves.
4. Nourishment develops through mindfulness, meditation, silence, stillness, spaciousness and an expansive vision.
A sustained exploration of all four contributes to deep happiness and fulfilment.
