Day 5 Of 21 Day Food-Free Living: The Will to make our desires come true.
Day 5 of my 21 day Food-Free living! I'd like to share my thoughts and experience.
If you are reading this for the first time, I'd like to remind you that I am doing this mainly to break a few patterns in my life.
You can read my past posts at abecherian.com
We don't always eat to satisfy physical hunger. Many of us turn to food for comfort, stress relief, and to reward ourselves.
We attach "food" to every emotion in our life. This attachment is directly connected to all our unsatisfied feeling within us. Any void that we feel can be momentarily filled by taking a short trip to the refrigerator.
This pattern has a strong hold on our emotional well being. If you are using food as a filler, it will reduce your internal WILL to transform - and to upgrade all areas of your life.
Strong attachment to consuming food increases the greed factor and makes us gluttonous.
Our bodies are the most "intelligent" machine in the universe. It's a vast universe in itself. A microcosm of the "The Universe" in itself. Science can never completely understand the millions of involuntary functions that body does non-stop to keep the organism alive.
So in reality, YOU don't have to put special effort to keep it alive and healthy. If you LISTEN to your body, it will tell you what it needs.
But you are not embodied within just ONE body. You are embodied in several bodies. And each one of those bodies needs different kinds of food:
Your physical body needs physical food.
Your breath body needs Prana (life force)
Your emotional body needs good relationships.
Your mental body needs knowledge and wisdom.
And your Spiritual body needs connection to the whole.
Each one of them needs different kinds of food. But we feed all our bodies with physical food and expect miracles.
If we don't feed the right kind of food to all 5 bodies that we live in, we die before our physical body dies.
Too much importance have been given to physical food, and not enough towards the other needs of this whole body.
The ONE THING that keeps it all together is an independent force called -- "OUR WILL".
If we can strengthen our WILL we can live a life however your want it to be.
Too much attachment to food will weaken our WILL. That is the pattern that I wish to break.
We say that we have FREE-WILL. Let's understand the gravity of what this means.
PS. “Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.” - Yoda
