Fibre For The Soul!

We need to feed our souls healthy food just as we do our bodies. The trick is finding a well balanced diet that satisfies our own soul's individual "nutritional" needs. No two are exactly the same. Some thrive on deep connections, while others sustain themselves by being mostly alone. Many people need to feel fulfilled in successful careers in which they are appreciated. Perhaps mothers and fathers need to feed their souls the happiness and confidence in playing these roles. We need to feel that our souls are completed by nutritionally supplementing them with something larger than ourselves.

And I am thoroughly convinced that every one of us needs to feel loved and needed - soul food for sure.

A friend of mine invited me to join a group of people belonging to the Buddhist faith in an evening of readings and meditation tonight. She said, "The quiet focusing on your own thoughts loosens the crap that has bunged up your mind so it can be eliminated." We both laughed at the obvious parallel to the "Metamucil Metaphor of Meditation"! Well, it does make a lot of sense to me - we could all use a little more fibre for the soul.

Mother of Invention, always searching for a little more soul food!
