You know that saying:” what you resist will persist”.
Well it is the same with raw and cooked food.If you approach your shift to raw food as a battle of will against cooked food then there is a good chance that you will lose.
So in deciding to go raw you must have a big reason for doing it that will dissipate the need to resist.
Do you want to be healthy both mentally and physically when you are old?Do you want to be active in your community when everyone around is getting sick because they are still on the western diet.
Have you some spiritual goals that can only be attained if you have a long life?
You must have these big goals or you will lose meaning to your life and drop back to cooked food because well why not what’s the point to life, you reason.
I have found the people who care about their health and by extension what they eat and very happy positive people who have meaning in their life.
Fo me I follow a Buddhist spiritual practice and one of the first meditations we do on the path to Enlightenment is to realise we have a precious human life.We have had countless previous lives mostly spent in hell or as an animal.Now by our greatest good fortune (actually as a result of our karma) we have a human life where we can attain full Enlightenment.
The process is long so we need a long life.We can achieve that if we eat the right food and drink the right drink.
So get clear on your big goals.The need to resist will disappear as you will know what is at stake.
What are your big goals and how do they help you stay raw?Tell me in the comment box below.
