Most people are oblivious to any kind of higher truth. This has something to do with the very ordering of the cosmos, where that which is genuine and real can only be sought out by certain kinds of personalities or souls. The rest must stay within the confines of the “safe” (which basically means what the television tells them). There are those who go out into uncharted territory, and they bring back the fire of the gods. Most often they are also punished for doing so.
This penalty might not be anything too obvious. It might be more insidious than that. It can manifest as being rejected by the crowd of people. Because they did not go to where the gods reside, they are unwilling to tolerate those who have achieved this enlightenment of the soul. So they remain on their own and in loneliness, because that was the consequence for seeking out superior truths. There might be other not-too-obvious penalties, but only those who went there can tell.
So why are we punished by the gods for seeking them out? It has something to do with hubris. A human coming into contact with a deity has removed himself so far from the majority of people, that he needs the punishment for his own good. Everything comes with a price, and it should, or the ego of such a person might grow too large. So he is “arrested” by the gods, even if this is for his own good. He went to where the gods live, and now he must endure the consequences of seeing what is forbidden for any human.
Yes, there are those who goes to where the gods live. Such men or women are rare indeed. Like Prometheus, there are punished for their audacity, yet they are also rewarded for their persistent denial of themselves. So what food does the god eat? They eat of the fruit called “divine enchantment”.
Divine enchantment is the giving up of the self for the sake of a new and superior self. It is the god coming and taking up residence in your soul. In this way, the divine and the human intermix, so that a new product is achieved. A new person comes into being which is simultaneously divine and human.
It could be called a possession experience, but that has negative connotations. Actually, it is a condition which enriches the person experiencing it. It is like an expansion of the mind or consciousness to include a god.
That is what the gods eat. Those who get it are both rewarded as well as punished by the gods. It is up to you if you want to discover this secret. I can take you there.
