    Great graphic to click the post!

    My mom gave me a silver spoon Mrs. Eddy had designed with the words engraved “Mind not matter satisfies.”

    Trying to remember that when attempting to balance the intake amounts of food.

      Interesting to me that when I have been deep in thought, having my thought focused on listening for guidance from Mind, the gentle voice of God which whispers directions to us, I have been completely oblivious to appetite. Sometimes I think that if our thought is so filled with listening for direction, helping someone on their journey, or even concentrating on our own spiritual pathway, we are freed from the temptation to overeat, overindulge or, equally troubling, starving the body. Paying less attention to the body is a good start.

    Practical perspective on the topic, 3rd NYC. And helpful comments, Carra and Pat. Thank you.

    It seems that Jesus was always dining with his disciples somewhere. Maybe having material food ever present made fasting more difficult. But when thought is filled with real food, as Pat experienced, hunger will not be found so aggressive.

    Sometimes at the grocer, when someone (maybe me) is standing studying some produce item, I may quip: Hard to find the perfect one for your last meal, is it?

    Here’s to spiritual dining!
