What are we consuming?

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.

  1. I totally agree. That’s why it is also important to be in good company. If we are fed positive thoughts, it will benefit us immensely. I feel good soft music is also very good for peaceful mind.

  2. This is very true. That is why reading the Word everyday is critical to fueling our spirits. Consumption of the shallow things does not fuel our minds and spirits. We are always ready to fuel the body with the necessary foods but we also need to fuel our minds and spirits with the necessary elements they need to perform the best. Good word in this post.

      It really is important to pay attention to what we’re feeding ourselves mentally in addition to physically… Thank you for your insight Sandra! 🙂
