Equal Time for the Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual
“Labour not for the meat which perisheth.” (John 6:27) Jesus know that we need food to eat while in the flesh, so he could not be referring to literal food, but rather to the inner substance which is spiritual.
Starvation takes place on more than one plane. More people are starved spiritually and intellectually than physically. A full stomach will never appease an appetite for learning, nor can a loaf of bread satisfy the inner craving for reality. The whole being needs to be fed — bread and meat for the body, knowledge and wisdom for the soul, atmosphere and consciousness for the Spirit.
We live on three planes at the same time. To attempt to desert any one of these, to the cost of the others, is abnormal. To live only on the physical plane is to become a brute. To live on the intellectual plane alone, might produce a learned and a scientific man, but he would lack true perception. To live only on the spiritual plane, might cause one to become a dreamer without any practical way of making his dreams some true.

What a beautiful day it is knowing that there is only One Source or God.
God created me and you and we are a part of God.
We get the opportunity to experience this life for God.
What a magnificent gift that we are given.
Today, I make sure that I give the physical, the intellectual and the spiritual an equal amount of my attention as I live my Life.
I give thanks knowing that I am doing that right now.
Thank You, God!
And So It Is!
