Salt of the Earth

"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea." Isak Dinesen

Sodium + Chloride = Salt Sodium is the essential element necessary for every electrical impulse in the nervous system. There is no action potential in neurons without it and synapses simply wouldn't fire.

Another interesting fact is that sodium or salt is generally never manufactured or destroyed. It simply gets recycled or passed along. Sodium is always sodium. We are called to be the salt of the earth. We find salt in our tears, in the sea and in our sweat. Start sweating your cure and over time. Our Lord will make repeated visits and heal us according to His abundant mercy.

Having said all that take a two pronged approach to self discovery change your actions and change your thinking. By repeatedly doing you transform into what you aspire. Remember foremost that being an Orthodox Christian is not about cramming dogma into one's mind but to enter into a relationship with God Himself; to have a conviction beyond measure about who Christ is; and unashamedly confess the Trinity.
