Do you ever feel like leftovers? Leftovers are something no one wants at the moment. It fulfills no one's needs. It might be wrapped up to be forgotten in the back of a refrigerator, and then discarded, molded with time. There are times when your lover, friend, boss, companion, partner, has had enough of you. At first you are ignored, then discarded. "NO one loves me!" you feel. I am not needed. I am unimportant, nourishing no one. For me, the spiritual path is one where the God of my understanding always hungers for me. With this relationship, I actually feel as though I am nourishing God, who longs for me, all of me, not just the good parts. All is good to God. God wants me to be God's skin on earth, to be this kind of loving towards others. I try not to treat people as leftovers. I have done that, to my loss as well as theirs. God's skin. I need nourishment to fill out my spiritual body. Prayer and meditation does that for me. No leftovers for my God.
