~ A Spiritual Recipe ~
We have friends who believe that there should not be
a process that a person has to go through to achieve
spiritual enlightenment or ascension. They believe that
it should just happen naturally to them without any
special effort on their part.
Spiritual growth and ascension are a process that
has to be gone through step by step. This process can be
likened to following a cake recipe.
People are like the flour that aspires to become a cake.
On its own, without going through the process of adding
ingredients, mixing, and baking, flour cannot become a
cake. If you tried to put plain flour into a pan and
bake it it will only burn and not resemble anything
close to the cake it aspires to be. But in the hands of
master chefs it can be transformed and achieve its
Just as flour has to have certain ingredients added
to it in the proper order and under the right conditions,
so too does a person on a spiritual path need to undergo
the process of adding the right ingredients in the proper
order, and under and right circumstances by the master
chefs (the Higher Self and Guides). The flour also has

mixing, and baking, (transforming with energy). The
process of making the cake cannot be rushed, nor can

changes and transformation to the flour. Sometimes the
mixing process can be arduous and stressful on the flour,
and the ingredient has to be added a little at a time.
But with each step the master chefs give the flour time
to rest and become accustom to its new state of being
before continuing on with the rest of the process.
During the process the flour has to trust and give
itself over to the master chiefs to make the leap of
going from plain flour into becoming a cake. At times
during the process the flour may start to fear that it
will lose itself within the cake, and those fears have
to be addressed and quieted before going on. The flour
must always be reminded that it is the cake’s base, the
main ingredient. It must realize that by adding the other
ingredients and going through the energetic processes of
mixing and baking it is enhanced and transformed and can
now develop into what its true purpose and potential is.
There are many types of flour and many kinds of cake.
What ingredients are needed and how much mixing and
baking it requires depends on the flour’s attributes and
what kind of cake it aspires to become.
All flour can become cake in the hands of a master
