615 – The Creator is within you

There are seven seas within this water pot (body)
Some are sweet, some are salty.
In this body there are nine hundred thousand jewels,
Some are emeralds, some are diamonds, some are pearls.
O avadhoot! There is blinding darkness within this pot.
The creator is within. – Kabirdas

Having become the fire of life, as Vaishvanara, I (atma) reside in the body of all living beings, and united with Prana and Apana, it is I who digest and assimilate the four kinds of food. – Bhagavad Gita (15:14) Sri Krishna

The four kinds of food: Some are chewed, some are drunk, some are licked, and some are swallowed. Sattvic food is what comes in this category. Lord Krishna defines it as being juicy, smooth, substantial and nutritious. Such food promotes longevity, virtue, strength, health, happiness and joy.
