"I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."
When I read this I think of animals. How they are governed by their flesh, their primal instincts. When they are hungry they might kill or steal, they engage in polygamous sexual behaviors to procreate and keep their species alive, they live in fear. The flesh is bound in lower frequencies of anger, fear, and individuality. The flesh is governed by survival.
As humans we wear the flesh but we should dwell in the mind and spirit. The flesh still gives us instincts living in the state of survival, but our minds are in control. We have the power to step back and reflect. Survival is not the highest truth for us higher beings, love is. We should use our minds to remove ourselves from primal behaviors and instead act in a state of consciousness. Choose to create beauty and love, which is God.
1. Think of five times in your life when your animal instincts took over/ take over, where you were governed by survival and your lower frequencies.
2. Take time with each of these moments of survival to sit in silence for 5 minutes each. Let your mind be controlled through love, unity, and consciousness of your ability to choose your life’s path.
3. Know that you are alive and will thrive for evermore.
