Inner Awakening is about not waiting for life to happen to you, it is not about positive thinking, personal growth or just good health. It is about going beyond your normal happiness and pain, and awakening the unknown hidden potential energy in you that creates and bolts a powerful shift in your consciousness, permanently!
PARAMAHAMSA SRI NITHYANANDA on Respect food, Don't Waste It!
OVER EATING is a modern disease. People think that it is better to eat more vegetarian food. Let us be clear here. Over eating any food is bad. Be it vegetarian or meat. It creates a lot of problems for us. We have never learnt to eat only what we need. We should be firm on eating only what we require and how much we need. Overeating is an expression of greed. We overeat as a substitute to fulfill other unattainable wants.
The first twenty minutes immediately after we wake up in the morning, plays a vital role in shaping our entire day. The mood we are in, the thoughts that arise and the way we react to these thoughts during the first twenty minutes, sets the trend for our entire day...
One of the many enjoyments of life is eating. While we still enjoy all aspects of food, over the years not only has our diet changed, becoming much less complete, but how we eat has also changed. We now eat in the car, in meetings, in a rush. All this change has had a profound effect on our ability to take in and digest not just food, but to digest and assimilate life experiences themselves. People are searching for a way back to wholesome foods. Unfortunately it can be at a great cost and still not provide a complete answer to all aspects of eating.
According to Ayurveda, the Vedic science of holistic living, the way you cook your food will decide what it does for you. Depending on how it is cooked, the same food can boost your energy levels, make you drop off to sleep or help you meditate better!
