"Jesus said, 'I AM the bread of life. The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more - ever.'" - John 6:35
A book I read recently suggested that the journey of a loaf of bread from farm to table could be a metaphor for steps on the spiritual path. Let's explore this premise and imagine how we might use these stages in bringing about desired change in our lives.
a) Planting - we can plant positive seed ideas in our consciousness.
b) Nurturing - using the tools of prayer and meditation, we encourage the ideas to deepen and root into our consciousness, allowing them to grow healthy and strong.
c) Harvesting - when what we have planted appears and is strong, we can harvest it in confidence that we are bringing about our desired result.
d) Kneading - this action reminds us that we have to work - sometimes repeatedly - until we get the desired consistency of what we want to express.
e) Rising - we become aware our consciousness has changed, leading to tangible results in our inner experiences, manifesting in our outer world.
f) Sharing - by living from our changed consciousness we are sharing the results of our work with the world.
