Do Not Cast Lots In Your Temples.-(inspired by Mekenzie)

Updated on April 2, 2010

Our body is

a temple of God,

and I am sure

he does not mind

an occassional remodeling

that is beneficial.


But expansion

in pursuit

of gluttony

or reduction

to a skeletal frame

in pursuit of

what's vain

is not in his plan.

He has given

us many organs

to perform the

sweet  long

drawn out

songs of life

within our

sacred flesh,.

We must keep

them in tune

and in harmony

with nature.


He has also

given us free will

to run our temples

anyway we choose,

but that gift comes

with consequences.

For like any

temple we require

maintenance, and

a congregation of

heathly donations

to our inner sanctum,

baptized with lots

of water, and an

occasional bit of wine.

The Garden of Eden

was a smorgasbord

of vegatables and fruits,

for Adam and Eve

to partake of.

We must remember

to add many of

these ancient

gifts to our

internal coffers

to avoid

an external coffin.


Remember Jesus

turned five loaves

and two fishes

into enough food

to feed thousands,

he didn't turn

donuts and fried

burgers into

such a blessing

for his followers.



should be

a new religion

for our bodies,

we can all have a

little bit of everything

that tempts us...

but it's the willpower

to stop at just a

few tempting taters

that is most important.

And as we

care for

our own bodies

we must also

consider the less


who go hungry,

Or thoses without

health care or without

the basic needs.

We should always

be concerned for

our fellow man

without whining about

what it cost

or how it will

be paid for

or which politician

should fix its


We must

turn some of our

energy to helping them.

This will bless our soul,

and ease our minds,

and make God happy.

Anything less is

far too costly to us all

and makes this world

a most barbaric place.

      I was just made aware of this HUB you say was inspired by me. My how you bless my soul. This poetry is filled with truths for those who wish to clear the cobwebs of our minds. My Poetry is like a rough piece of wood. It has need of being honed. I see the beauty of your words and seek to learn from you.

      Here is my response and summation from my heart.

      Balance and even pleasure with moderation is the key.

      Raw Food as God created

      Is the best for you and me.

      Fresh, colorful, vitamins & minerals

      Is what feeds the bodies need.

      and never forget those without

      Give freely as you bow the knee.

      Thank you MB you inspire me.

      Blessings! Mekenzie

      Good work. Very thoughtful. I admit I feel a bit overwhelmed though. You give a lot of suggestions for what we should be doing; could you identify a starting point, and some initial steps?
