This is the first in a series of blogs i will do about food, recipes, wellness, nutrition and life in general. Here, we will investigate how our mind thinks and why we choose what we choose to eat and when.
Some words become inflated in our mind, as we associate a positive idea to it like the word 'superfoods' where we believe we can become 'super healthy' when we eat them - not seeing that this is our mind interpretation of this word and that when we look at Wikipedia for example, this is the definition we will see of this word:
Superfood is a marketing term used
to describe foods with supposed health benefits.
The term is not in common use by dietitians and nutrition scientists, many of whom dispute that particular foodstuffs have the health benefits often claimed by advocates of particular superfoods.
We will investigate how we can remediate words and have direct-access to information instead of thinking about them in our mind - as part of the natural learning process.
We will give a clear definition of words we commonly use when we refer to food, recipes, nutrition, wellness, health and life in general.
We will correct the definitions we give words within our mind, transforming them from fear labels to words as how they are commonly defined or used in this world, as.
We have to ask ourselves:
What is driving us to choose the kind of food we eat or not eat?
Why do i open the refrigerator even when i am not hungry?
Why do i eat whatever i see in the house when i am alone?
Is my Eating Behavior A Vocabulary Problem?
Let's look at the definition of Behavior:
Behavior word web : (psychology)the aggregate of the responses or reactions or movements made by an organism in any situation
Response word web: is a bodily process occurring due to the effect of some antecedent stimulus or agent
Reaction word web: is an idea evoked by some experience
1.A change of position that does not entail a change of location
2.The act of changing location from one place to another
It is our preference for a certain food item or a certain taste that we associate with a positive memory, picture or word in our mind, believing that these foods will also give us happiness.
We resist that which we connect to unpleasant memories in the past which we re-live when we taste the food we associated them with.
We experience these unpleasant experiences within our mind, which we believed was a source of unhappiness, suffering and pain.
We avoid these foods because we believe through Not eating them, we can avoid these negative memories - memories of others being sick in our family or our near death memories - which we believed can influence how we feel at a given moment - so we try to run away from this fear through avoiding eating food items such as rice, corn etc.
We did not realize that it is our fear that is impulsing us to react in different ways to different food items.
We tend to reach out for food that we associate with happy experiences.
We avoid food that we be-lie -ve will 'make us gain weight', that will 'make us feel bad', that will 'give us some pimples' etc. and food that we believe will' make us sick', as per what the tv or what the books we read said - whether they will be 'cancer causing' or can 'cause some allergy' etc.
We resist being sick because we associated it with the possibility of dying.
We formed a personality within our fear of sickness and death which interestingly enough is the same personality that desires the opposite polarity - wanting to be healthy, wanting overall wellness, wanting to look good and wanting to feel good.
Interestingly enough, this Health and Wellness personality is also the Sickness and Un-wellness personality that i am embodying within my choice of food.
Our fears drive us to desire food that we believe is healthy and food that will make us feel well in the long term. But because this personality is polarized within our mind, whenever we choose to eat food that we believe is healthy, we are charging the battery within our mind, so to speak, so, as we eat food that we believe is healthy, we are charging this polarized personality, and because the mind is works in polarity - within friction and conflict, as we are charging the 'healthy personality, we are also charging the 'unhealthy personality' .
These personalities we created within our mind. They are alternate versions of ourselves. This is not who we really are.
Who we are is the physical body that moves, breathes, talks, express ourselves and works in alignment to the rest of the physical ecosystem
Whatever we eat will feed the cells what it needs to be able to perform its functions.
But when the personality which desires happiness starts overriding the body's preference for food, that originally assists in the physical body's functioning -- begins to choose food that will make us feel happy and blissful it, instead, feeds the mind's desire to eat based on what tastes good, sweet, etc., and food that will make our blood sugar rise -- rather than eating food to support the body.
What happens is that the mind feeds off the energy from the body producing thoughts, feelings and emotions.
We react to the fear and uncertainty that we created within our mind. The body sensing this reaction, reacts to it and that is when we experience Stress in our physical body. When we react to fear the body reacts to our reaction to what we fear within our mind. As we resist what we fear, the fear persist.
'What we resist persist'
We then look for that which will entertain us momentarily. This is our way of resisting or running away from fear which is impulsed by what we read or hear which are usually words that we in turn speak and write which we resist rather than accept because of the associated 'negative' meaning that we connected or defined it within.
How do we spot words with an inflated or deflated meaning?
There is a way to see which words are biased. There is a software that i use that does that. When we speak or write words, an emotion or feeling arise within our mind, sometimes we can spot them if they are positively charged but most of the time, when they are negatively charged or when we are busy thinking as we speak and write, we are not fully aware, so, we participate and use information that is laden with unreal value judgments without us being aware of it.
There is a way to spot which words are inflated or deflated in our vocabulary and remediate them.
