[photopress:twocups2.JPG,full,alignright]Can you tell the difference between the product in these two cups? The liquid in these cups is so similar – you can barely notice a difference at all. The amounts are equal. The cups are identical. But the cup on the left contains chocolate milk, the other contains a Starbucks coffee drink that I cannot pronounce. By just a first glance, most would mistake these cups for the same thing. But are they the same? NO WAY! The chocoloate milk tastes good and may actually put you to sleep. The Starbucks drink contains a habit-forming nervous system stimulant drug that causes increased awareness, nervousness, dizziness, and in large amounts, death. We call this Caffeine. Both of these drinks taste good, but similar these are not.
The taste or visual appeal of what we eat or drink is not nearly as significant as the result of the digestion. When we consume something, it goes into our digestive system where our body uses the chemicals, minerals, and nutrients in the food. They are digested; they become part of us and effect the way we act and think.
[photopress:beans_1.jpg,full,alignleft]We need to be careful what we digest in our lives. The media (television, magainzes, internet, books), interactions with other people, and personal attitudes can be digested in our lives each day and if digested, they will certainly effect the way we act and think. When digested, these things will undoubtedly effect us-the end result is imminent. Results of the real-life things we digest in our lives may effect us in positive, negative, or even explosive ways.
Now am I suggesting that we need to live our lives in fear of “eating” the wrong thing? Of course not. Live out in the world and enjoy life – but be cafeful what you’re DIGESTING. Be discerning of what’s good and what isn’t (Chocolate milk vs. Starbucks). If you experience something in life that you don’t want to digest — just spit it back out. Don’t absorb the nutrients from it!
That’s the Digestive System according to Adam. Hopefully, you “get it.”
