The second source of nourishment is sensory impressions, what we consume with our eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, and mind.
When we read a magazine, we consume.
When we watch a television program, we consume.
Whatever we consume affects out body and mind.
If we consume toxic magazine articles, movies, or video games, they will feed our craving, our anger, and our fear.
If we set aside time each day to be in a peaceful environment, to walk in nature, or even just to look at a flower or the sky, then that beauty will penetrate us and feed our love and our joy.
