"LOOK AWAY FROM THE BODY"

In general, humanity looks largely to the body for comfort and satisfaction. Mortals slavishly devote time, attention, and material wealth to serving the body, thinking it can reward them with health and happiness. But they ultimately find that the body does not bring them lasting health or durable happiness. It cannot think or act of itself, and it can never be the source of substance or reality, which belong to Spirit, God. In view of this fact, does it not seem logical and wise to look elsewhere for satisfaction?

The prophet Isaiah said (55:2), "Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness." The prophet's words strongly indicate that there is a much better way of finding satisfaction and happiness than by looking to the body.
