How should we pour life-juice into decaying tissues? Very carefully! And, what wine and green juice have in common…
Whether you have a religious affiliation or not, it bears appreciating that the ancient theological texts (from all spiritual traditions) are filled with clues to the crucial Natural & Universal Laws that govern your life. As I hope you are realizing, being knowledgeable and in-sync with these laws determines whether you thrive or not.
When an individual whom I know has a biblical background complains to me about an uncomfortable reaction upon drinking green juice, I’ll immediately direct them to the biblical admonition in Luke 5:37-38 that reads: “And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins…new wine must be poured into new wineskins.” The connection is this: your digestive tract is like the old wineskins. It is rancid and filled with the residue of antiquated fermentation and unfavorable microbes. The green juice is the ‘new wine,’ the life-generating microbes. The unfavorable microbes (a.k.a. pathogens) will recoil and flare up when met with these ‘new wine’ microbial ‘beings’ (for they are like little beings) in the same way that we see the ‘devilish energy’ flare up and sizzle when met with the holy water in the movie, The Exorcist. Now, please also note that the complaint is a-cause of the individual having chosen to ingest a far too concentrated alkaline formulation for their unique cleansing transition level. It is not a fault of the green juice (the ‘new wine’) per se but of this density of alkalinity meeting with this quality of tissues and quantity of matter and gas pressure (the ‘old wineskins’).
This is why it’s critical to start with the more diluted formulations like cucumber and romaine lettuce (with lemon/ginger/stevia optional), rather than go full tilt juicing kale, dandelion, chard and parsley (the darker the greens the more medicinal; the more medicinal, the more life-force potency (centripetally spinning activated electrons), which must be tempered if there are blockages and a high degree of pathogens in the body/wineskins)!
As the old microbes depart (through natural bowel elimination, colonics, enemas and deep sweating), a greater percentage of darker greens can be introduced with excellent results. Remember we cannot break Natural & Universal Law, we can only break ourselves against them. Putting new wine in old wineskins (both literally per the biblical narrative and figuratively in this green juice scenario) are prime examples of breaking oneself against ‘the law.’
There are countless parables that serve to reinforce the laws and their applications in light of our cleansing endeavors. In my dream world, I’ll get to more of them in short order. They offer up new understanding to the parables themselves and shed much light on why the cleansing experiences present as they do.
