The Olympic Spiritual Athlete and the Art of Spiritual Nutrition
Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), D.D.
The word “transition” creates the possibility of continual and conscious change in our life. It keeps the door open to evolution. We are all in transition on every level of our mind-body-spirit function. There are several major transition stages in the art of the Spiritual Nutrition Lifestyle, all the way up to the “Olympic” level. The Olympic event we are training for and participating in, of course, is the planetary transformation of consciousness.
While we explore these transitions, it is important that in the art of Spiritual Nutrition, our concern is not with the ideal of the purest diet, but with the most appropriate diet for our spiritual communion and our living situation and function in the world.
Transitioning off Bioacidic Foods
The first stage includes letting go of processed, irradiated, genetically engineered, adulterated, fast foods, and junk foods such as white sugar, white bread, candy, frozen dinners, pastries, soft drinks, coffee, and any non-organic meats treated with nitrates and nitrites, pasteurized milk and cheeses, baked goods containing refined oils, foods containing additives, and alcohol. This stage takes time. It involves pondering what has been put in the foods, and learning where to shop to get healthy foods.
Growth and Learning Stages
There are then several stages of increasing alkalinization and detoxification until gradually we come into alignment with the diet eaten by cultures known for health throughout their years. It can take years, as we expand our awareness of and knowledge about food combining, high or low-protein from plant-sources only according to constitution, how to prepare plant-sourced only foods, and the proper timing and amounts of foods become more refined. We begin and progress in learning sprouting skills and the meaning of rejuvenating foods. Ultimately, at 80% live and biogentic food, our bodies will slowly increase their ability to act as superconductors of the cosmic energy. It is a dietary point of evolution that is fully adequate for and supportive of spiritual life.
“Intercollegiate” Spiritual Nutrition
Green vegetables and some low-glycemic fruit increase to about 35-40 percent of the diet in the "intercollegiate athletics" level of the Spiritual Nutrition lifestyle (remembering that each of us must find our own optimal percentages). The high percentage of structured water in these foods help to dissolve toxins and increase the transport of nutrients in the cells. Biogenic foods are the most oxygenated and restorative. By increasing the flow of life-force energy into the system, this diet significantly increases the potential for the critical energy level be reached for awakening the Kundalini spiritualizing energy that lays dormant within us. This diet also accelerates the purifying and spiritualizing action of the Kundalini energy, once it is awakened.
Olympic Training and Participation
The "Olympic" part of this stage includes Spiritual Fasting during three to four seven-day green juice fasts per year. It may also include at least one forty-day fast at some point in our evolution. Fasts are time of increased meditation and fasting from worldly activities. This is a powerful spiritual practice that enhances the transformational process. Spiritual Fasting, with increased meditation, most effectively turns our system into a superconductor for the purifying, spiritualizing energy. After we reach a certain point of purification, the fasting program is no longer done for purification. By following the 40-percent biogenic, 95-100-percent live-food diet, our body is able to purify at a rate equal to the internal metabolic toxin production and the environmental pollution exposure. One then begins to use the fasting to further enhance the superconductive spiritualizing energy flow and transcendent transformation.
