“A man who is possessed of much substance, and has both servants and children, gives a different kind of food to the servants from what he gives to his own born children, because the children are the father’s heirs, and eat with him, being made like to their father. Even so, Christ, the true master of the house, who created all things himself, nourishes the evil and the unthankful, but the children whom He has begotten of His own substance, to whom He has imparted of His grace, in whom the Lord is formed, these He provides beyond others with special refreshment. … Those who possess the true inheritance have been begotten as sons of a heavenly Father. … If we then desire to be born of the heavenly Father, we ought to do something that exceeds the rest of mankind.” ~St. Macarius the Egyptian
What is the divine food that we get from God and Christ? It isn’t meat or bread. It isn’t even apples. It isn’t anything material since the world of matter is the fallen world. The divine food is sometimes called manna or grace. It is actually Light. Not just any light. The divine food is spiritual light, a special frequency of light.
All Are Fed
The divine food, the spiritual light flows to all. It comes to us on Earth through the spiritual sun acting as intermediary. The light reaches all of us. But it isn’t so much that God or Christ chooses how much of that divine light each of us should get. It is more that we choose how much of it to take in and use. The same amount reaches each of us, generally speaking, but our frequencies, our thoughts determine how much is absorbed.
The true inheritance we receive from God is an awakened spirit and soul. Many people have a soul, but only a very few ever bother to awaken it. This is usually because they don’t know they need to. In other cases, they know but think it will happen automatically when the body dies. But you can’t wait until death to awaken the soul. We need to do it now.
Only with an awakened soul can we achieve Gnosis, Divine Knowledge. Only an awakened soul can reach the highest levels of consciousness. And that is what is necessary in order to help in the transformation of the planet back into spirit. So if we want to do something that “exceeds the rest of mankind,” we need to start by awakening our spiritual faculties. We don’t exceed the rest of mankind by building monuments to materialism. Likewise, collecting huge amounts of money (and depriving others in the process) isn’t really exceeding the rest of mankind. It is our spiritual deeds that matter.
So eat the divine food. Take in God’s Light from the spiritual sun. Awaken and start making use of your spiritual faculties. Don’t let them go to waste. Don’t let the world you live in go to waste.
