Everything, including our bodies, is only borrowed from the Earth and we all possess certain amount of inertia within us. In order to maintain a healthy body and mind, it’s important to keep inertia levels at a minimum.
We can do this by consuming foods and spices such as turmeric that affect our cellular structure in such a way that energy can penetrate our cells effectively. This allows the energy we are creating to be used by us effectively as we choose and will help create greater possibility within our bodies.
In other words, turmeric offers physical support that can help us advance our spiritual goals, whatever they might be.
