Fasting Diary Day 5
I went to bed at 3:30 am and woke up at 8:30 – had plenty of sleep.
I have noticed that since the fasting had started I require less and less sleep. I thought that it will be the opposite and I will be sleeping more. Oh well. How many more things I assume certain way and they are not the way they are.
Today is Saturday, so I went to the farmer’s market in Alpharetta – local farmers bringing their fruits and vegetables for sale. Called my aunt and spoke with her about fasting – she is guru with these sort of things. Overall, I am feeling great today. I can say that I feel very light and full of energy.
After the market I went to the park in Alpharetta to read the book before my work starts. I sit down on the bench, spread my hands to sun, asking for peace, when somebody screamed:”HEY, YOU!” I did not feel like interrupting my procedure, but the voice kept on coming closer.
I finished and a guy said that he has some practice to do by throwing Frisbee and I am on his way. Now, this is very important. My reaction was very calm and surprising to me. I said that I apologize and left the bench to find another one.
The funny part that I was asking for Peace and the guy was rude, plus he saw me spreading hands to the sun with closed eyes. I had a good laugh from it later. May be that is the way Nature is testing me, - if I can have internal peace, who knows.
The hunger is absent most of the day. Sometimes it’s letting me know, but after couple of minutes goes away. Today is the best day overall on the internal feeling. The itching went away and I still have a little rush, but nothing compared to previous.
No excessive sweating as it was before. I saw couple of kids playing with each other. One of them were picking the leaves from the tree and throwing at another one. I felt that it was not right – it was painful for the Mother Earth... Bingo. This is crazy. Did I become more sensitive? Interesting observation.
However, I was doing the same thing before and no thought of this kind. (This is very interesting observation - I started feeling Nature different way). Also, when washing my hands, before I would tear the towel, wipe my hands off and throw it in the garbage. Today, when wiping my hands off I did not tear and thought that I could use it again, since I do it pretty often. Different random thoughts like this are making me to believe that something transforms inside of me.
Could it be the way of reconnecting with nature? I don’t know yet. I need more time. But so far I can feel better the universe. The sense of clarity in my thoughts has visited me today. I have so much energy and so many things have to be accomplished. It is hard to explain feeling, since it is something new to me. Two more days left.
