Ponder TKese in ]/our 00feart By 00mennis Justison I'd like to leave you with some encouraging words for your efforts in this last article about fasting. St. Isaac of Nineveh, who lived in the 7th Century, gives us some solid advice. "A small but always persistent dis- cipline is a great force; for a soft drop falling persistently, hollows out hard rock." If you consistently do a little, it will have a great effect over time. Whether you are fasting, praying, or offering a smile to everyone you meet, you will make a difference. You will be bringing Christ to your life and into the world. St. Isaac also says, "If you compel your body, when it is weak, to labors that are beyond its strength, you will instill darkness into your soul." A regular fasting routine is a challenge. It is easy to "bite off more than we can chew." It is wise to take it easy, especially in the beginning. Remember, our goal is spiritual progress. Fasting helps us tame the pas- sions. To do so, we rely upon God and we soon beat a well worn path to Him for His help. Fasting is really something positive that should bring us to light and joy. "Fasting is the beginning and foundation of every spiritual activity." St. Symeon the New Theologian said this about 1,000 years ago. I mention this because fasting is a very spiritual activity. Many Chris- tians today divide reality into physical and spiritual. The body, nature, and anything material has nothing to do with the Spirit. The ancient Christian concept, hinted at by St. Symeon's statement, is that everything is spiritual. Being truly "spiritual" is to put the material and spiritual to- gether. Everything we do, and everything there is, is spiritual. The tree, a forest, the animals, and my body are material things and are not God, but God permeates all of these things and is present within them. This makes them spiritual and capable of communicating God to me. All of Creation, all the material world, is good. Sin didn't change that. You and your body are good. You are a spiritual being, and your body, though material, also has a spiritual component, it is charged with the energies of God. This is one reason why we should have reverence for our bodies, each other, and all of creation. The natural world isn't something for us to ex- ploit and cut down, or rape and pollute. There are consequences for abus- ing creation. The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the leader of Orthodox Christians, has stated that caring for the environment "is a spir- itual responsibility." From global warming, pollution, to habitat preservation and more, we have turned our environmental problems into political issues. I think it would be better to see the environment as a spiritual issue. Taking the spiritual out of the material has made us blind to the holy and the sacred in the natural world. This same blindness causes us to abuse each other too. I believe that fasting can help heal our blindness and abuse of each other. Through fasting, we awaken to the reality of God's presence in all things. We see God's presence in all people. We see God's presence within ourselves. And when we can see God, we can reverence Him wherever, and in what- ever, we see Him. So whether it is the environment, my neighbor, or myself, I will be more likely to be respectful and honor the holy if I can see. it, if I can see Him. Fasting is one way to open our eyes and hearts. Some say that fast- is a self denial, a discipline, or even a suffering. Rather, it is a ;, freeing, and eye opening exercise. It opens a t the world outside of ourselves and also within.
