90% of people are living in “self-survival mode”, which means they want to control their circumstances. And what does that produce? Stress. And what does “stress” do? It collapses the spiritual energy that you were created with, and you start to become “more flesh and less spirit” which then affects your body, and it affects your organs, and it affects your perception, and it affects your understanding — all of those things.
When you start to try to survive and protect your image then you are “shrinking the spiritual realm that God put around you and in you.”
This is only a small portion of the teaching, “What Is Life?“.
