Good Intake

Eating Properly

It’s a biotic engine. This body on loan
To the heart of my spirit for one humbled while
Is a biomechanical marvel to praise.
It sustains my existence in wonderful ways.
But if I treat it wrongly it will turn hostile.
Fascinating is this structure I seem own.

The word ‘health’ comes from the word ‘whole.’ What does it mean?
Harmony among body, mind, and the spirit
Is the true indicator of health excellent.
Constantly running engines must be kept content,
And the fuel that it’s given will help keep it fit.
It is all kept in check through digestive hygiene.

Someone is not in good health if there’s no ailment
Yet the energy level is grossly wanting.
Food that’s cooked loses enzymes that can’t be replaced
By the strongest of gut systems and it is faced
With an uncalled for struggle – a truly daunting
Thing to put a machine through. The soul must lament.

Eating foods that are living, like herbs, nuts, and fruits,
Is the best for the body that’s also alive.
They contain the ingredients for digestion.
Try it out for a few days. What will have begun
Is the process of living not just to survive.
Energy is the life force for worthwhile pursuits.

Success

Effortless Alignment

What is successful living? Does it mean the same
For each and everyone upon earth now alive?
The answer is both yes and no depending on
What one’s meaning of life is. The phenomenon
Of the meaning of meaning’s proneness to contrive
Less than real things of value the ego does claim.

Resolutions for new starts begin with release
Of the past segment’s chaos. All my suffering
Is of either the body or the troubled mind.
Separation between them and me is most kind.
Meditation achieves that. Indeed it will bring
About certain relief and a feeling of peace.

Outside things that will happen I’m not shielded from.
But what goes on within me is worth giving more
Of my focused attention. My feeling at ease
Is a measure of joy – not a goal I must seize.
Ease and joy are equivalent, and keeping score
Reinforces what is and invites more to come.

What is eaten had life once. Should I feel respect
Since it is part of me now? With such I must treat
With appropriate reverence and gratitude.
It gave life as a blessing. Sacred is my food.
Harmonizing with nature can make the life sweet.
To the earth’s vast intelligence I must connect.
