I've decided to fast for two weeks to become aware of the material word, desire, and to understand and experience suffering. This all came to me in a spiritual dream. I've never been on a fast before and really had no clue of what it detailed. After completing two intense days of the lemonade detox (water, lemons, cayenne pepper, maple syrup) I soon realized I am on medication and needed something heavier in my stomach in order for me to take my meds. On the third day I made a smoothie with just organic fruits, flax, and combined it with the lemonade detox recipe for breakfast and lunch. For dinner I will continue with the lemonade detox. I guess you can say I'm on a raw food fast. We must remember that fasting is not a diet plan or self punishment. Jesus fasted for 40 days. Fasting is between you and God.
-A complete fast is a complete and literal denial of self. It is the truest prayer.
-A genuine fast cleanses the body, mind and soul. It crucifies the flesh and to that extent sets the soul free.
-What the eyes are for the outer world, fasts are for the inner.
-Whenever there is distress which one cannot remove one must fast and pray.
This is is the beginning of the end. Stay tuned!
