'PHOENIX OPERATOR-OWNER MANUAL' - RECOGNIZING AND DEFINING THE MOST 'DEADLY' SINS OF HU-MAN 3. - GLUTTONY
Jesus Sananda, Lord MIchael and St. Germain
We will first define Gluttony by defining what is a Glutton: “One who eats to excess. 2. One who has a great excessive appetite or capacity for something.” The key to understanding what is Gluttony is that it is the act of having EXCESSIVE, beyond reasonable need, appetite or desire for anything of the physical state of being. It could be food or one could be what is termed a glutton for “punishment” by self or another. One could be a glutton for sex, for war or for power over others meaning he is hoarding unto himself, by expanding his capacity, a “perceived” physical pleasure because he feels UNWORTHY and, therefore, HE FEARS there will not be “enough” of whatever is the object of his excessive appetite.Gluttony is a form of self-punishment because ANY excessive “intake”, such as of food, sex, or power, often proves to be the very thing which leads to the destruction of the Glutton. It is this EXCESS, beyond reasonable need, which is not assimilated within the being, but is actually STORED, which then produces the EFFECT (remember the law of “Cause and Effect?”) of actually devouring and destroying its HOST. It is this HOARDING of ENERGY beyond the ability to ASSIMILATE and INTEGRATE it within his being, which the glutton has “trapped” and which, as is the nature of ALL energy, will seek to free itself from its “static” state in order to MOVE and remain ALIVE, even if it means the destruction of its HOST. Yes, this excessive trapped energy becomes much as a “parasite” upon the glutton. You see, chelas, the INTEGRITY of the energy deteriorates if it is accumulated, stored and kept STAGNANT OR STATIC for an inordinate period of time. Just as it is the nature of stored FOOD or ENERGY, such as FUEL, to deteriorate, if it is not somehow preserved. And even though the life of the food or fuel energy is extended by your various preservation processes, the quality or integrity, because of the stagnation or dormancy state of the food or fuel, is still usually lessened.
If you KNOW GOD/ATON your Father will provide ALL that you ever need to sustain in HIS service, why would you need to excessively HOARD any energy WITHIN YOU which is a part of the SPIRIT OF LIFE? The correct answer, precious ones, is that you do not need to over-consume the needs of your spirit or being to sustain you, IF the FATHER WITHIN is acknowledged and accepted as YOUR TRUE UNLIMITED POWER. You must KNOW within your very being that you will ALWAYS have what you need to sustain in HIS service!
Now let’s please make this clear to you ones who may be now in a panic wondering if your “body”, which you “perceive” carries more weight upon it than you would desire, is the result of gluttony. First of all, many of you under-estimate what is YOUR IDEAL weight. The image constantly fed to you of “thin, thin, thin is in” has caused many of you much unnecessary pre-occupation with this desire for a “thinner” you. This is VANITY which we will discuss in depth later within your “deadly” sins. Each ONE of you is gifted with a different skeletal frame for your body. If you are small-boned and petite in stature, then naturally you will need to carry less weight than one who is large-boned and petite in stature. When not tampered with, most of you were born with excellent natural functioning metabolic-mechanisms for maintaining an “Ideal” weight FOR YOU. Many of you simply eat MUCH more than your body needs to sustain in healthy harmony. Gluttony, then is EXCESSIVE appetite and desire for the hoarding of MUCH more OF ANYTHING which is a form of energy, than what one can properly assimilate in his experience. YOU each must learn to recognize whether your transgression against self is because of vanity or gluttony, BOTH or NEITHER.For example, when one is a “glutton for punishment”, this means he hoards upon himself, because of lack of SELF-honor and SELF-worth, continuous, excessive and consecutive experiences which cause him undue stress and unhappiness. He becomes a “glutton” of the excessive repeat of his own self-created experience of VICTIMHOOD.Gluttony really becomes a “mindless” behavior in that the glutton experiences a state of trance or transfixation upon whatever is the object of his gluttony. He is hiding from his pain of feeling unworthy, and by the mindless hoarding he becomes numb to his feelings.
This, as you may now see, is much the same desire to “hide” from one’s feelings of being inadequate, unlovable or otherwise undeserving of life of one who is addicted to drugs or alcohol. You now within your society have MANY young men and women who feel so UNWORTHY that they will repeatedly “mindlessly” gorge themselves and then in disgust with themselves, they will vomit it all away. Ones have termed this “addiction” behavior “bulimia.” It has become the “new” dis-ease of your young people who strive tobe, and can never “measure up” to SOME physical or other image of “false” perfection that either they have been given or that they themselves have adopted. What is the difference between one who is bulimic and one who eats more than he/she needs and retains the excessive weight upon the body? Both are eating to FILL an emptiness within, often of feeling unloved by self or others. The bulimic though can hide his/her food addiction from “the world” by maintaining a “slender” physique, thereby experiencing both gluttony and vanity. The one who overeats and gains excessive stored weight is experiencing an addiction to food for a variety of reasons, but most often the reasons revolve around “filling” the emptiness within and/or to give a protective “shield” (of excess weight) against emotional “attack” by self or others. This one too can feel vain, and get on a treadmill of overeating and thereby trying various “programs” of dieting formulas, diets, exercise, subliminal tapes and other so-called “miracle” programs to lose the weight. Until both (food addicted “types”) are able to recognize and come to terms with WHY they USE food to “fill” a need, and also learn what that “need” actually is, the one addicted will not be able to CURE his/her addiction.Do you see, dearest ones, these “sins” we are defining for you are really the “symptoms” of the ANTI-Christ cancer within you, devouring, confining and limiting your creative SPIRIT OF LIFE. Your spirit is fighting the absolute AGONY of your self-created CHAINS of creative limitation. You must NOW recognize these symptoms and ASK the FATHER WITHIN YOU to give you HIS POWER, HIS WISDOM, AND HIS LOVE to help you cast off these chains of LIMITATION upon your creative spiritual unfoldment!
