Not only are we affected by the environment in which food is grown, we are also affected by the consciousness of the people who prepare our food. In Muktananda's ashrams, food was always prepared with Love so the people eating the food would receive that Love. Marcel Vogel has shown that water infused with the thought form of Love has a different taste and a different subtle vibration. Live food is filled with the highest degree of structured water which best holds the vibration of our blessings. As we eat this blessed food, we eat our blessings on this subtle level. We are interacting with food on subtle energy levels as well as on the material level of assimilation.
Peace be with you,
Rabbi Gabriel Cousens
