MINDFUL THOUGHTS ON MINDFUL MATTERS

What’re you feeding your spirit? Look at your electronic connection and ask yourself if what you’re taking in is positive, compassionate, and loving?
We must remember the information we take in is like food for our soul. To our spirit this information is either nurturing or toxic. Everything we take in through our eyes, ears, nose and bodies either effects us positively or negatively.
We don’t just consume food, we consume information and that information feeds our spirit. It either lifts us up or brings us down. So ask yourself, is what you are consuming toxic?
How much of the day do fill yourself with negative messaging? Stories about this politician or that celebrity; Entertainment that mocks or demeans others, shows violence, or causes harm; political stories that focus on our differences...all of these things are toxic. Taken in small bits they can be entertaining but if we keep ingesting this stuff it makes us cynical.
Our over-connectedness, on the surface seems to make us feel better but if its at the expense of others, it’s toxic. On the surface watching reality shows that mock people’s lives or shows of people struggling may seem to make us feel better about our own lives, but deep down they are actually feeding our own insecurities and add darkness to our light.
So, ask yourself, are you feeding yourself Toxic or Healing information?
Is it junk food or SOUL food?
