Now that I am on day three I have been feeling some fascinating feelings running thru me and I realize how much I eat that my body is still try to catch up to and process. Your body has at least 3 days of back-up that it hasn't worked out of your system and some cases more. I was fairly amazed at this simple revelation. If I can break my attachment to food I will be in a higher state of bliss. I am always thinking about food and at times my appetite feels a bit like a bottomless pit. I always get nervous when people want to share food with me because I am inclined to eat all of it if I don't pay careful attention.
There is nothing wrong with a healthy appetite, but I found that I would use food as a distraction. Something to do when I did not know what else to do. Food can actually be quite a drug. American in particular has quite an odd relationship with food. In 3rd world countries nobody has eating disorders and trying to explain Bulimia is like trying to explain the idea of peace and mediation to the current white house regime.
All of the things in our life connect even though we can't see those connections. Beyond all these thoughts the idea of Ghandi Fasting to bring about peace somehow started to make alot more sense to me. I never fully understood the power of fasting. I do consume lemons, maple syrup and cayenne pepper which is pretty well known amongst people that do this sort of stuff. My goal is 5 days which would be good starting point. We live off more then just food and doing this brief fast has helped me to see that simple and wonderful fact thru my own personal experience. There is a power of mind and spirit that is realized when we start to break our attachment to food. As I kid I thought the idea of 24 hours was unbearable and there were moments on the first day where I got a little cranky and now I am starting to hit a groove. Cleanse the body, mind and soul.
Did I tell you guys that miss all of you and I want to have you all in the same place at one time or just discover how to become full omnipresent.
