Spiritual Health Food
One way to connect with the view and practice of Menla can be to see it as being a little like spiritual health food. When we eat health food, we know that good food generally helps us feel healthy. It may resolve some illnesses just by itself, or it may help whatever treatments we are getting to be more effective. And finally, good food may set us into a more health-based state of mind so that whatever health we have, we can appreciate more and put to better use in life.
And, just as health food can take extra effort to buy and prepare, so too does Menla take a little extra effort to actualize in our life. It is worth it. And the best idea is to use it before we fall ill. And if we do that, we can deal better with whatever comes our way.
