Creating a Climate of Harmony, Part 5/5

Returning to the subject of almonds, let me begin by speaking of something that I have often noticed: a lot of people buy almonds (and walnuts, hazelnuts and peanuts, too, for that matter) that have already been shelled. Of course, it is much more convenient: they are lighter and easier to deal with, but I don’t recommend it at all.

You never know how long they have been shelled and they have certainly lost all their etheric particles and, consequently, all vitality, as well as most of their flavour and all nutritional value. It is as though you were eating something lifeless.

For certain fruits and vegetables the situation is different: whole rice, for instance, or wheat or beans retain their flavour and nutritional qualities because they have an inner skin. But it is better not to buy your nuts already shelled.

Let me add that you should not eat fruit or vegetables that were picked a long time before, either; they, too, have wilted and are already lifeless. You pay less for them, that is true, but, in fact, they cost more because you get no life from them. And it is life that counts, life that is more important than anything else.

If you have life you have all the rest, too, for part of that life becomes intelligence, another part becomes love, another part activity, will, energy and so on. Whereas when life diminishes you gradually lose all your powers and faculties. People would get along a lot better if only they acquired the habit of counting more on life and less on externals.

Of course, I know that no one is capable of living perpetually in a state of perfect harmony, but you can always be conscious and vigilant, so that, if you find that you have slipped back into disharmony, you can get a grip on yourself and reverse the situation again.

You should never allow yourself to harbour a climate of disharmony for long, for it spreads into all your cells, cuts off all communication, all currents, all circulation, until your organism can no longer resist the disorder.

    Thank you for your wonderful work!
    I subscribed on Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov’s teachings Journey with Omraam, since a long time and I do not know why I didn’t receive any email from you (weekly emails from subscription) since May. Also I can’t put my country on preferences, which is my country : Romania. I tried today but still I can’t. Please let me know why I do not receive emails from you anymore and what can I do, also how can I complete my country Romania on dates about me. Thank you very much. Best regards and light thoughts,

    ps Aivanhov’s teachings save my life. Since I read the first book (for me) The Laughter of the Sage of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov I changes all my life in better. After I bought all romanian translated books and I read all.
    I changed all my life, I am a better very different person since I met Aivanhov.
    I want to thank you very much for this wonderful work! It is very necessary these days.
    Keep going. All the best. Luminous thoughts,
