The Dendrite-Friendly Life
from Ascension Life News № 64 ‘Life with Divine Intent’
den·drite: dendrīt/: noun: a short branched extension of a nerve cell, along which impulses received from other cells, at synapses, are transmitted to the cell body.
“It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.” 1 Corinthians 15:44
This “raising” of the spiritual body is a transmutation process. Everyone who gains Ascension Consciousness (full enlightenment) must go through this process. We are, in effect, “spiritualizing” the natural body.
As Mother God has said: “And, so the Ascension experience is a very physical experience as well as a deeply spiritual experience. It’s when the whole physicality is spiritualized.”
We have electro-chemical activity taking place throughout our system. Since we have ‘mass’, we also have a magnetic field. We are bioenergetic beings –vibrating subtle and spiritual energy. For those on a spiritual path, this transition from human-form to divine-form — the raising of natural body to spiritual body — is a permanent life-goal and quest.
There is a subtle interplay between the natural and the spiritual body. Subtle experience requires purification, normalization and subtle functioning of the nervous system. Dendrites are subtle mechanisms in support of divine experience and the spiritualization of the natural body.
Research has shown that alcohol can damage neural connections (dendrites and axons). At first, this may be temporary.
While alcohol does not kill brain cells, it can damage and degrade the dendrites causing cognitive problems.
A ‘Life with Divine Intent’ guards the machinery of perception. Yes?
I rarely drink any alcohol.
If I’m out for dinner and wine is desired by others or offered by the host, do I accept? Yes, I do. I have one glass but not two.
If a buddy wants to meet up at a bar to watch sports, will I have a beer? Yes I will — but not two.
So, I am not super-strict about alcohol consumption but still careful. To me, moderation is valuable and also has ‘divine intent’. This is my version of a dendrite-friendly life. Yours may be quite different.
