8 Days a week, I’ll lo oh oh uv you – The Beatles !?!?

Got some recommendations from a friend on some better stuff for eleminating toxins. It was suggested to get Swiss Kriss brand laxative and doubling the dosage. I’ve been using Senna tea up to this point.

I had some hunger temptations yesterday. Took the kids to McDonald’s and man I was so close to ordering an ice cream or french fries.

I have a slight head ache today.

Had some interesting dreams last night which have been recorded offline.

Fall Fast – Day 7

Weight is dropping again. Scaled ranged from 210 – 213lbs this morning.

I’m engaging more and more on the lemonade solution as part of the master cleanse.  Feeling good still.

Salt water flush is working much better after I increased the amount of salt to heaping teaspoons instead of flat teaspoons.

Still drinking a little bit of pear, vegetable, and pomengrante juice.

13 more days? I may slack off for thanksgiving. Dang – I hate getting this started and then perhaps having to slack off.  If I do decide to engage for thanksgiving it means I will need to resume eating around the 23rd or 24th which still gives me another 5-6 days, which could make for about 13 total. I have heard that in spirit they say it is good for women to fast for 5-7 days and men to fast for 7-10 days depending.

Allegory of the Duck Billed Platypus

 The idea is that our consciousness is spread across a multitude of dimensions with lower and parts. Parts of it continue in and out of this world until perfected and parts are presently in what we might call “heaven”. Not reincarnation in the Hindu sense, but not just us and God above either.

Paradox. Check the side links if you want to know more.

Anyway, so the lower part of me – the animal side has wants and desires I guess. I can feel it from time to time when my more primal things become engaged. There are reasons for urges, but the question is how to channel those into a transformational force. I’m not sure yet.

When my body dies – the energy associated with that part of me would theoretically  return to earth and perhaps go out as an animal of some kind. Perhaps advanced souls’ animal natures are those cats capable of games such as fetch; birds capable of delivering messages; dogs capable of all manner of tricks; etc.

I have begun to look at abnormalities within nature to better understand this world and perhaps the world without. There are certainly a number of “odd” animals to contemplate.  Gay penguins.  What about the duck billed platypus?

The duck billed platypus has enough venom to kill a dog I recently learned. It is a mammal that lays eggs.  Confused? Perhaps that is the animal nature of a confused person as it returns to this world. Who knows.

What about the hag fish? I’m sure the list goes on.

Fall Fast – Day 6

Finished my last dance class of the month last night. That will wrap up Swing Level I and Waltz Level II. I may have found me another dance partner as well. This will be three dance partners! I find this is a helpful way to work on my feminine side since I don’t have a wife willing to engage in mutual self-development at the moment. Perhaps that will change one day 🙂

I didn’t get around to doing my morning walk today so I guess I will do that at lunch. Weight is maintaining at 213-214lbs. I am slightly upset about this. I figured 6 days no food and I would be back down to 205 already. Well, the last time it took me 14 days to lose close to 20lbs.

I started on the master cleanse yesterday. Sort of eased into it. At present rate I have 14 more days to go to reach the goal of 20 days. Had pineapple juice yesterday for dinner. Quite yummy it was.

I’ve added an “organic bowel cleanse” to the mix. This includes acacia, psyllum, and other assorted herbs and seeds known for cleansing one’s foundational areas. I may add horseradish and clay water to the mix tomorrow.

One other cool thing I found. They are called Cayenne pills. Instead of downing this lemonade with cayenne in it, which is really hot – I just swallow a cayenne pill. Makes the master cleanse not quite as dreadful 🙂

I also started chewing gum through out the day. I had heard that if you fast for too long that the muscles in your gums become weak and teeth may fall out. I’m trying to be safe here.

Allegorical Considerations

I live in an empty 5 bedroom home. Perhaps there is an allegory that. Perhaps the 5 rooms represent my 5 senses and the emptiness in the home signifies that the 5 senses point towards my aloneness.

I noted that the entrance to my home is Jacob’s Well and that on the back side the entrace is called gateway. If only I had another street named providence as entry into the neighbordhood.

Recently I have begun to explore the options of selling our home. It seems that I may be able to afford enough to live in a camper with a small truck. This would be nice I think. Perhaps I should try this first.

Fall Fast – Day 5

Had tomato juice and  pear juice for dinner last night. Eleminations were slimy.

Did the salt water flush this morning. I still must have the mixture off because it is not as rapid as I would like.  More black tar stuff this morning.

Went for my standard walks this morning. Energy levels are fine. Weight is holding at 213-214lbs.

Perhaps I will switch to the master cleanse today. Been dreading it honestly.

Fall Fast – Day 4

Last night my stomach was troubled. The eleminations looked somehow, really “old”. I know that sounds gross, but we’re doing this for the benefit of mankind.

Had a slight head ache this morning. Drank some cherry juice and flushed it down with organic water.

My weight is maintaining at about 213lbs, which means I had roughly 7lbs of fun in my gut. That’s a lot of fun to have in one’s gut.  I got some fancy schmancy sea salt for the salt cleanse part of the master cleanse and went and ahead and downed 1Qt of sea water (distilled water + 2 tsp sea salt).

Fall Fast – Day 3

I did a salt water enema last night. Lots of black tar looking stuff. Sort of looked like the little black fuzzies on the movie Spirited Away.

Hunger is fading into the background. I had a couple friends call me up to discuss their spiritual growth and were asking lots of questions. Interesting.

For dinner I had pear juice! Pear juice is divine! So is tart cherry juice, but even more so is pear juice. I had headaches the last two days, but I feel my mind now sharpening up. Sharp!

Tomorrow I suppose I will switch to the master cleanse fast. I wanted to start out with three days of fruit juices to get my body ramped up. I’ve got 64 Oz of fair trade organic maple syrup ready for this.

I plan to strive for 20 days this time. So we have 17.5 days left to go. It may depend on the weight loss as well. I’d like to lose all my baby fat for once.

213lbs as of the evening. Bizarre eleminations. Did another salt water enema. My stomach is feeling slightly upset.

Fall Fast – Day 2

Yesterday I weighed in at a solid 220lbs. At my lowest during my last master cleanse I was at about 208lbs. So I’ve gained 12lbs after about 6 months. I really gained 2-3lbs in the last 2 months so it might have something to do with avocado tacos or nachos twice a week.

Today I weighed in at 216lbs. In terms of eliminations I think I had some clay and such that I ingested almost a month ago come out. Perhaps eating dirt was a bad idea.

I’ve been focusing on organic grape juice and coconut juice so far. I’ll probably switch to the master cleanse solution starting tomorrow. I bought my lemons and what not yesterday evening.

I have been trying to focus more consciously on my breath through out the day and trying to feel my ear lobes and toes periodically. Mind is sharp today, but I was tired this morning when I got out of bed.

I started reading the Celestine Prophecy. I’m speed reading through it. Almost done as of last night. Could have summarized the whole book in 5-10 pages, but I guess it needs a wrapper to draw people in.

Turns out I’m being somewhat demoted at work in order to pursue a business opportunity. They simply can’t afford me any longer at my price in this economy. I’m probably going to put my house up for sale and buy me a camper and truck and live out in nature and stuff. I need to find a place to park the thing where there will be water. If my business takes off, it will be fine though because I will be able to keep my interests more mobile.

Fall Fast – Day 1

I began another fast today. I had wanted to start this yesterday, but a couple of situations came up preventing me from doing so (Steve).

I haven’t eaten since last night. Last thing to go down was cheese enchilidas.  I had debated starting today because I had recently purchased some fresh “organic” milk from a local farm. I have yet to see what they feed the cow, but it was pretty neato to see actual milk. The fat floated on top of the milk and was slightly yellowsh in tint. Anyway, I put the milk in the fridge and started the morning out with a nice glass of Senna leaf and Green Tea.

I dran organic grape juice from concentrate most the day.

No head ache so far.

At lunch time, one of my bco-workers randomly brought me a package of pomengrante seeds. So beyond seeds, I’ve had nothing to eat today.  Going to shoot for 20 days this time. In preparation, I have bought 64 Oz. of Grade B Organic Maple Syrup.

One of the interesting things is that my eleminations have turned into green powder. This is probably from the hemp protein shake I had almost 2 days ago. Gee whiz. I wonder what else is still stuck in there. Perhaps I will find that dime that I swallowed in my youth.
