I just fasted for 36 hours, and it was amazing. I just ate but I’m gonna fast again for 24+ hours. I have so much more time and energy.
Not thinking about food, no post meal energy fluctuations
I was a mess like 4 months ago. Drinking and smoking like every night. Maybe 2-8 beers or glasses or wine 4-6 days a week. Get high before passing out. Chain smoking cigarettes.
I think I go to self destructive modes to shake myself awake and force me to get real about what’s important
Regardless, that’s what happened and ive just decided none of that shit is good. I still drink here and there but rarely, and I have no desire.
feels great not feeling a compulsion for things
Addictions that we rationalize
Think are okay
But in the haze i didn’t even know what OKay is. I deadened myself to what healthy and optimal feels like, and the consequence is I failed to address pressing problems, and things don’t ever improve that way
I’ve come to these conclusions in the past. I just forget them, because I rationalize and lose sight of my goals, or lose faith in myself, and then self medicate to deaden to anxiety
But I feel my absolute best when I am operating free of all chemicals
I feel optimal. My rest. My body has energy. No dragging. My mind is sharp. It’s a work horse. I sleep well, and regularly. I wake up earlier, naturally. I have more time to do things I want to do
Focus and having goals and like telling the little bitch of the ego to shut up is a big part of it
Ego is the enemy
Just dwells and obsesses on inconsequential shit. Wastes energy. Complains. Wishes things were better, instead of just being better
Ego is the enemy
The obstacle is the way
Fasting is a nice addition. Forces you to abstain from craving, attachments, forces you to exercise will Power and self control, self awareness. Fasting is actually quite spiritual. It produces crazy clarity of mind. And it makes sense.
The expression of being hungry for success isn’t by accident
When you’re hungry you’re awake, you’re sharp, your hunting, your senses and mind are engaged
When you’re satiated, full, satisfied, you are complacent, dull, dumb.
It’s nice to force the body and mind to abstain. It produces a clarity, an energy, a focus.
