Spirit tells me that everyone creates in a continuous
And unending development of their life. Some may
Call it a lifestyle, but a way of life is the way we
Choose to create our life. We cannot not create
When we eat, He tells me (I have just finished
Eating a delicious meal that I prepared myself, so
It could be sour grapes – Spirit may not be able
To eat).. He repeats Himself, when we eat, we
Are nourishing or abusing our body.
Eating far beyond (I may have overeaten
A little) what is necessary to sustain
And nourish healthy growth.
Addiction to food is still addiction. I
Feel no remorse. My taste buds enjoyed
The food, and approved of my efforts.
My appetite, wherever that resides,
May have been a bit greedy. My body
Does feel a bit too full. This is abuse,
Spirit tells me, and I suppose He’s right,
Again. My digestive system, He tells me
Has been the victim of my obvious lack
Of self-control, and now must work,
Beyond what a small meal
Would have required of it.
Now comes the real guilt trip. He
Suggests that my digestive system
Has now become an unwilling
Participant to disease creation,
Obesity being, in Spirit’s mind,
A created disease process.
I will try to eat less, next time.
