Ra’s Words of Wisdom
When you enter into Human Design and you’re introduced to the nature of the aura and the way in which we connect with others, conditioning takes on another level. In other words, it takes on a level in which the conditioning is something that goes deep, deep within us and has an extraordinary impact on the way in which our mind operates since our mind is so deeply connected to its vulnerability to being receptive to conditioning. But perhaps, the most profound conditioning of all is food. Food is the great homogenizing agent. It really is. It’s an extraordinary thing to see. And it is interesting to understand that it is through food that the limitation of humanity, the present limitation of humanity is simply maintained. In other words, the inability of humanity to be able to break out of being the homogenized herd and it begins with food.
One of the things that I love about the knowledge is because it is mechanical it approaches things from a totally different perspective. Food is one of those things that all of us seem to have an intimate relationship with. And all of us seem to have our opinions about what is good food, what’s bad food, what’s right food, what’s wrong food. All of us have our habits, our trends, whether it is the latest Thai or the latest Japanese or the latest this or that, there are all these movements in food, the macrobiotics, the bio-food, this kind of food and that kind of food, there is this whole thing.
Then you take a look at the way in which food functions within our society. Remember that for us, because we live in the time of the Cross of Planning which is rooted in the tribal mechanism that for the tribe, food is something that is a very important aspect of the social dynamic. In other words, we are expected to eat together. Not only are we expected to eat together but we are also expected in the grace of having food to be open to bringing others into our environment to share food with us.
It’s interesting during this time of the Cross of Planning in which the tribal organization of society has ended up with this vast homogenized way in which we take in food. For example, the chain food stores, the McDonalds that cover the planet that provide the same homogenized diet to people all over the world bringing literally the same dumbing down frequency. And by the way, I have nothing against McDonalds. It isn’t about the food, which is what the different perspective is all about. And it isn’t about bowing down to social mechanisms that lock us into homogenized patterns.
