Three quarter of what you eat keeps your doctor alive- African proverb.
I wish to modify it further that the extra three quarter that we eat keeps your doctor, insurance/pharmaceutical/diagnostic company and banker alive.
Food of mind is thought. Food of ego is power. Food of greed is money.
One quarter means the lesser the better, three quarter for doctor means working for others by loosing opportunity of enjoying human life by living simple life, enjoying your work as that will lead you to your inner beauty, kingdom of God.
Saint Kabir,India, said that the path since beginning of universe to living life as human being on this planet is very zig-zag – like an ant moving in search of food from one corner of a room to another. It means already we have travelled too much length to cover small distance because of lack of consciousness.
Now only one quarter of a mile’s (cm in case of ant example) straight path of living life as human being on this planet is left but illusion of this world is so strong that only few can escape from it, if they taken proper precaution of remaining conscious while eating, earning, living etc.
So three quarter of mile is already covered after taking birth as a human being and you have enjoyed all these already and now do not get indulged in it again. Focus on remaining one fourth by eating everything one fourth, because only at the beginning point this illusion can be controlled.
It is astonishing that except human being no animal eats once its hunger is satisfied. Other animals gather around Lion to eat the left overs once its hunger gets satisfied.
It seems human being remains hungry 24 hrs!
This is also strange connection, may be due to food, that only human being has no time/season to enter into sex. Every animal has its time/season.
By controlling food this proverb may be controlling the other ie sex too which seems to be strangely connected! Energy consumed is going to be released too.
Awareness meditation (Osho guiding about meditation on YouTube) is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. You may wish to know that the state of meditation is our natural state and “How meditation affects us?”.
There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step in deciding to add value to life. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation (My experiences shared through a post) helped miraculously. Along with meditation living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful. It is helful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
