Another way food can change your perception of life, is when you don’t have enough food and are malnourished. Life can be very gloomy and a person in this situation can take on an attitude of hopelessness. They can be easily manipulated by those who control the food supply and be made to do things that are against their natural moral principles.
People who are raised in a more abundant atmosphere, with nutritious food readily available, are more capable of moving into more creative areas of life than the endless search for nutrients.
Then there is the warm, happy feeling we get from a well-prepared meal, made with love, and shared with people we care about. If you feel all alone, eating can become a sad chore and lose its flavor, the way life has lost its flavor.
Alone or with friends, when we are in touch with our spiritual nature, tasting a magnificent fruit can be a doorway to the wonders of the Universe.
