“Everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” (Marc 9:49-50)
What was it used for and what did it symbolized?:
– It was used for sanctification. Men, objects and animals used to be sprinkled with salt in the Temple by the priests.
– It is one of the main constituant of life together with water. If one of them is missing, we simply dry out like the fig tree.
– Salt was a luxury product until the middle ages when world trade began on a larger scale. It was not a cheap commodity that was bought for a few cents. In addition, the salt on sale today and that most people consume, contains only sodium chloride (NaCl2) free of all other minerals that the pharmaceutical industry has extracted and that serve precisely the organism to treat this NaCl2. This is also part of the loss of salt taste.
– Salt is an excellent preservative. Therefore it symbolizes the immutable character of the Word of the Lord.
– It gives taste to what is tasteless. Salt-free cooking is certainly very good for your figure, but it is practically inedible and definetly unhealthy. Depriving ourselves of salt as well as sugar can have serious consequences in the long run. We have a vital need for these elements, provided they are natural, of good quality and consumed in moderation.
– Electrolysis: Salt is the essential element for the flow of information occuring in the human body through its nervous system. Without salt, information cannot pass and the body decays.
