Mindful Eating

“When walking, walk. When eating, eat.” · Zen Proverb

Mindful Eating Is All About Eating Without The Burden of Your Mind


 

Mindful Eating is all about eating consciously while remaining in the stillness. If you want to know how wise and enlightened someone is, just observe the person eating. Disclaimer ( I will not be responsible for your reaction to that person ) …

Most people while eating becomes more unconscious. I have seen so many wise, spiritual persons until the food arrives on their table and suddenly they go wild without even realizing it.

This is the basic problem of the human mind. It has inherited this problem since early ages. As we know there was a time in humanity when man used to eat like animals. At that time he was unaware of how to save the food for the next day so he used to eat wildly.Another fear was that what if the other person will do if he will know me. So at that time it was best to eat wildly.

Thanks to some external evolutions now, we don’t have this problem externally, but still somewhere in the human mind the problem is present. Mindful Eating is all about dealing with this problem.

Tips for mindful eating:

Always sense fully the taste of your food.

Yes, always sense the taste and realize the energy field of the food you are eating. Every food has an energy field. By doing this you will soon know that how healthy or unhealthy the food is. Taste the apple next time you eat, you will feel every bite differently.

Be present in the moment

The human mind wants to eat all at once. It does allow the person to taste the thing being eaten. It is also the same with water. You drink more than eight glasses of water daily but you don’t know what you are drinking. You don’t taste it you just want to finish the work. Never ever play this game with your food. Food gives you life energy.

Eat patiently

Don’t be afraid, No early men will come and take your food. Take it easy, enjoy your food. Nature has given food the power to change your mood. How many times food has been able to change your attitude. By the way a bar of chocolate works for me.

Be alert when buying your food

Use your bodily intelligence rather than your mind while making eating decisions. The mind will want more sugar, but the body knows what is the requirement of this moment. So always be still before eating. Let your body make decisions.

Know what is the meaning of mindfulness and do some mindfulness exercises in daily life. It will help you to not only eat wisely but also in every area of your life. Mindfulness is a way to enlightenment. By taking initiative on this small thing, who knows where it will take you.

GOOD LUCK!

15 Motivating Quotes For A Healthy Lifestyle

Don’t you want to live as long and happy as you can? Have less medical bills. Wake up with more energy throughout the day. Don’t worry about high cholesterol and blood pressure. These are all things that you can attain while living a healthy lifestyle. No one said it was easy. You have to be mentally strong and have will power made of steal. That’s why I decided to give you 15 motivating quotes for a healthy lifestyle.

1. The best feeling is when you know that no one thinks you can do something. Then you prove them all wrong.

Do It Because They Said You Couldn't

2. Nothing worth having is ever easy to come by. The same goes for a healthy life. There may be some hard decisions and a lot of discipline, but when you get what you earn you will appreciate it so much more.

Earn Your Body

3. Some people may think you’re crazy for giving up certain foods. Some people may think you’re even crazier if you workout two or three times in a day. Soon enough they will be asking you how you managed to do it.

First They Ask Why, Then How

4. Worry about the big picture. That means a life long habit of training your body and eating well on a regular basis. Your body will take care of the rest.

Forget About Getting Skinny. Eat Well And Exercise

5. Don’t give up just because you think you’re trying and you don’t see the results that you want. You can push yourself to limits that you never thought possible, only if you really want something.

Work Harder

6. Everyone has will power, including you. If you make a decision to change something in your life then mean it. Go as furiously as you can towards that decision. Don’t waver. That will give a chance for doubt to seep in.

It's Not About Will Power. It's About Change

7. When you hit obstacles in the road, more often then not you can’t control it. What you can control is how you respond to that obstacle that made you fall. It’s your decision how confidently you get back up and back on track. Only worry about what you can control.

It's Not How Far You Fall. It's About How Long It Takes To Get On Your Feet

8. It’s not about how fast you’re moving. As long as you’re moving towards your goals, you are making yourself better. That’s all that matters. Being healthy and strong is a lifelong journey, so you don’t have to rush.

Keep Moving Foreward

9. Look back at #6. It’s all about your mindset. If you make a decision and stick by it, everything else will take care of itself.

Losing Weight Is A Mind Game

10. Whatever your best is, give that effort in everything that you do. If you try your hardest then in the end there will be no regrets. You will be ultimately happy with the result.

Run Faster. Eat Better

11. You only get one body and one life on this earth. Respect yourself and love yourself enough to take the best care of yourself.

Take Care Of Your Body

12. You are the only one who can change you. You are the only one who can make decisions for yourself. You are in full control so there is no excuses. Chase after the body, mind, and health that you want.

You Are The Creator Of Your Own Destiny

13. Nothing will happen if you stand by idly, or just wish for it. A healthy lifestyle requires work, and no one is going to do it for you. Climb your own ladder to success.

You Can't Climb The Ladder Of Success With Your Hands In Your Pockets

14. To reach a goal, first you have to figure out what you want. Picture yourself as the person you want to be and then go after it. Constantly have a clear picture in your mind. Think about it all the time until you reach it. Then guess what? Set another goal to make yourself even better.

You Must Begin To Think Of Yourself As Becoming Ther Person You Want To Be

15. You are mentally and physically stronger than you ever thought possible, but you won’t ever figure that out until you put yourself in that situation. Pursue situations that challenge your mind and body.

You Will Never Know Your Limits Unless You Push Yourself To Them

If you haven’t already started making changes in your lifestyle to be more health conscious, I hope this motivated you to do so. Your body is counting on you. Just simple changes in your lifestyle can save you tons of money on doctor visits and medication. It’s definitely worth the effort. The beginning can be the hardest part. But NEVER quit!

5 Tips for a Happy & Healthy Mind

Related imageWhat kind of information do you like to fill your mind with? Do you find yourself constantly reading cheap or free newspapers only to find there is a terrible story in it that upsets you? Or perhaps you get caught up in other people’s opinions and conversations and find yourself agreeing to things that you actually don’t agree with!

Did you know that you are heavily influenced by the people you surround yourself with on a regular basis? In fact, you pick up behaviors, mannerisms, opinions, beliefs and oodles of other information that your brain unconsciously absorbs, resulting in similar behaviors.
If you want to make a change, grow or break a habit or routine, look to your environment – the people around you, where you work, what you read and how you speak to yourself. All have significant influences on what you are internalizing, and have an impact on how you live your life.

Here are five tips on keeping a healthy mind to help you on your way!
 
1. Meditation/Mindfulness
We read about the profound effects that meditation has on our mind, but how many of you actually do it on a daily basis? When you meditate, you are giving your mind time to clear, reformat itself for all the new information that is going to be taken in the following day, or day ahead.
2. Media
As important as it is to be aware of what is going on in the world, the media is very centered on pain and negativity. This fuels pessimism, and ideally it’s best to avoid subjecting your mind to it regularly. There is no point in being stressed or worried about something you have limited control over; it’s a pointless waste of energy. Also, beware of brainwashing; all is not necessarily as it seems, and the media are great at exaggerating and bending the truth. If you want to make a difference to the world in some way, you could seek out some voluntary work or donate to a charity.
3. Surround yourself with people who give you opportunities to grow.
Friendships and relationships are based on love, and love is energy. When the frequencies change, you will find that particular friends and relationships may drop away, or you don’t feel you have anything in common with them any longer. If you continue to hold on to relationships which no longer serve you, they sap your energy resources or distract you from focussing your mind. Don’t be afraid to let go if you feel the time is right; you will find that new opportunities will arise as a result. You never know who that next amazing person/teacher/friend/lover/mentor is going to be!
4.  Eat healthy
Of course, eating healthy and staying hydrated are really important for brain function.
The experience is different for everyone, which is why only you know what your body needs and would benefit from eliminating. You can experiment by cutting out a certain food or drink for as short as a week if you suspect that your body is rejecting it. The turnaround time is normally five days to completely flush it out of your system.
5.  Spend your time doing something you LOVE!
The most important thing of all is to ensure you spend time doing a hobby or activity you love. When we participate in doing something we love, we radiate so many positive emotions, all magnetizing out into the universe to bring you back more joy and happiness. So many people get stuck in a rut and lose focus on what is important and brings them pleasure. Find something you love to do, and do it daily. Make time for it, and even better, make a career out of it! Life is supposed to be an enjoyable experience. Of course, you can learn through pain, but why learn through pain when you can learn and grow through pleasure?

Read This Before You Give Up On Your Meditation Practice

There’s a lot of information out there about meditation, and it can get very overwhelming and confusing, to say the least. Along the way, a lot of mistakes happen, even if you’re an advanced meditator. If you ask me, knowing which mistakes are the most common can take your practice to the next level and stop you from giving up on your practice.

Here are the five most common mistakes people make while meditating:

1. Not truly understanding what meditation is.

You know it’s good for you, you understand that it raises your vibration and can help you to achieve a higher consciousness level. But there’s more to it than that. When you’re meditating, you are achieving spiritual awareness on a conscious level.

This means you are aware of your spiritual body and your physical body at the same time while you’re conscious (and by that I mean not sleeping). It’s very important to understand this because you’re accessing your spiritual tools when you’re in a meditative state. You quiet the mind when you achieve a relaxed state. This allows you to become more aware of your spiritual body.

While in a meditative state, you can access both bodies and the information they hold at the same time. When you consciously become aware of your spiritual and physical body at the same time, you have a lot more access to the spiritual tools you were born with. And these tools can be very helpful in everyday life.

2. Not knowing what it means to “achieve” a meditative state.

A common misconception is someone thinking that in order to achieve a meditative state you need to be in a quiet room, sitting in a certain position, controlling your breathing. Here’s the thing: Most people are meditating every day without even knowing they’re doing it.

A meditative state can happen when you’re staring at the TV, when you’re staring into space, when you’re daydreaming or relaxing in a chair, and even right before you fall asleep. When your body is relaxing and your mind is quiet, you naturally achieve a meditative state.

But this can actually create a problem. You don’t realize that when you’re relaxing, falling asleep, or driving home from work—that’s when you’re most likely to stress out about your day. What is happening then is that most people naturally achieve a meditative state on their own. They are usually going over all of their problems, so it’s a Catch-22. And when you get into a meditative state, it’s the most powerful time to visualize.

3. Not understanding what being in a meditative state feels like.

You can feel dizzy. You can feel vibrating inside your body or even like you’re vibrating outside your body. You can feel like your arms are shaking or your legs or your body. You can feel like you’re being pulled upward.

You can also feel as if your energy spills into the entire room, as if your spiritual body protrudes from you, almost like you can touch the walls with your body. There are a lot of different variables on how meditation might feel to you. It’s not cut and dried. Some people think you’re supposed to feel a certain way or you didn’t achieve a meditative state. That’s simply not true. If you release all expectations, then you’re going to take a nap or go to sleep. Then you allow yourself to approach the edge of falling asleep, and your body will naturally go limp and relax. And your whole body will relax. It’s more natural.

4. Thinking there are strict rules for how meditation has to happen.

You must be sitting up. You must meditate at a certain time of day, each day, and be consistent. You must be sitting in a chair. You can’t eat red meat. You can’t fall asleep!

Actually, none of that matters. It’s interesting how many rules people want to meditate by, but you’re naturally a spiritual being. You access the spiritual part of yourself every single day. It’s not something you have to work to achieve, it just is. What you should work toward is being aware that it’s happening.

It’s happening whether or not you’ve ever consciously meditated a day in your life. It’s happening, and you are spiritually achieving.

5. Thinking one type of meditation is better than another.

Meditation is being spiritually aware on a conscious level, so it doesn’t matter how you achieve that awareness. If it’s guided meditation, then do guided meditation. If you don’t like guided meditation and you find your mind wandering, maybe try being more aware of your meditative state before you fall asleep.

Everyone meditates for different reasons. Everyone has a different agenda. Someone might want to have a deeper spiritual connection, someone else might want to connect with spirits, while others want to learn how to relax and lower their blood pressure.

There are no rules when it comes to achieving a meditative state. The key is awareness. Be more aware of when you achieve this state, more aware of how often throughout the day you achieve this state, and become more conscious of what you are doing and what you are thinking about while in a meditative state. Then utilize this time to the best of your ability.

Good luck!

A Happy Life May Not Be a Meaningful Life

mutlu-insanlar.jpg

Psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl once wrote, “Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose.” For most people, feeling happy and finding life meaningful are both important and related goals. But do happiness and meaning always go together? It seems unlikely, given that many of the things that we regularly choose to do – from running marathons to raising children – are unlikely to increase our day-to-day happiness. Recent research suggests that while happiness and a sense of meaning often overlap, they also diverge in important and surprising ways.

Roy Baumeister and his colleagues recently published a study in the Journal of Positive Psychology that helps explain some of the key differences between a happy life and a meaningful one. They asked almost 400 American adults to fill out three surveys over a period of weeks. The surveys asked people to answer a series of questions their happiness levels, the degree to which they saw their lives as meaningful, and their general lifestyle and circumstances.

As one might expect, people’s happiness levels were positively correlated with whether they saw their lives as meaningful. However, the two measures were not identical – suggesting that what makes us happy may not always bring more meaning, and vice versa. To probe for differences between the two, the researchers examined the survey items that asked detailed questions about people’s feelings and moods, their relationships with others, and their day-to-day activities. Feeling happy was strongly correlated with seeing life as easy, pleasant, and free from difficult or troubling events. Happiness was also correlated with being in good health and generally feeling well most of the time. However, none of these things were correlated with a greater sense of meaning. Feeling good most of the time might help us feel happier, but it doesn’t necessarily bring a sense of purpose to our lives.

Interestingly, their findings suggest that money, contrary to popular sayings, can indeed buy happiness. Having enough money to buy what one needs in life, as well as what one desires, were also positively correlated with greater levels of happiness. However, having enough money seemed to make little difference in life’s sense of meaning. This same disconnect was recently found in a multi-national study conducted by Shigehiro Oishi and Ed Diener, who show that people from wealthy countries tend to be happier, however, they don’t see their lives as more meaningful. In fact, Oishi and Diener found that people from poorer countries tend to see their lives as more meaningful. Although the reasons are not totally clear, this might be related to greater religious belief, having more children, and stronger social ties among those living in poorer countries. Perhaps instead of saying that “money doesn’t buy happiness,” we ought to say instead that “money doesn’t buy meaning.”

Not too surprisingly, our relationships with other people are related to both how happy we are as well as how meaningful we see our lives. In Baumeister’s study, feeling more connected to others improved both happiness and meaning. However, the role we adopt in our relationships makes an important difference. Participants in the study who were more likely to agree with the statement, “I am a giver,” reported less happiness than people who were more likely to agree with, “I am a taker.” However, the “givers” reported higher levels of meaning in their lives compared to the “takers.” In addition, spending more time with friends was related to greater happiness but not more meaning. In contrast, spending more time with people one loves was correlated with greater meaning but not with more happiness. The researchers suspect that spending time with loved ones is often more difficult, but ultimately more satisfying, than spending time with friends.

When it comes to thinking about how to be happier, many of us fantasize about taking more vacations or finding ways to avoid mundane tasks. We may dream about skipping housework and instead doing something fun and pleasurable. However, tasks which don’t make us happy can, over time, add up to a meaningful life. Even routine activities — talking on the phone, cooking, cleaning, housework, meditating, emailing, praying, waiting on others, and balancing finances — appeared to bring more meaning to people’s lives, but not happiness in the moment. 

More broadly, the findings suggest that pure happiness is about getting what we want in life—whether through people, money, or life circumstances. Meaningfulness, in contrast, seems to have more to do with giving, effort, and sacrifice. It is clear that a highly meaningful life may not always include a great deal of day-to-day happiness. And, the study suggests, our American obsession with happiness may be intimately related to a feeling of emptiness, or a life that lacks meaning.

Where is God? Everywhere You Want

When you say you are on a spiritual path, it means you are looking for truth. But what kind of truth are you looking for? Usually, most people – whether they go to a temple, church, mosque or ashram – are looking for something that pays – something that will benefit them. But for one who is genuinely seeking, truth is not the kind that pays. It gobbles everything.

This is not for the smart who want to be “somebody” in the world. Everybody wants to conquer something. Only a fool aspires to be a nobody. Only a fool wants to surrender and be conquered? There has been a very long tradition of fools who want to surrender, who want to become nothing, who want to exist here not as proud human beings, but just like soil, just like the land. Shiva saw that these fools will not make it in this world, so he embraced them. He took them as his own. If not because of their ingenuity, because of plain stupidity they are graced.

Doors can open because you are deadly smart and powerful, or people may open doors out of compassion. There is a whole tradition of people who do not mind even if they crawl across, they just want to somehow get across. These are shameless people – they do not suffer shame, nor anger, jealousy or anything. They are shameless, pride-less, egoless, senseless people. It is these people who attained.

“Where there is a devotee, God exists…”

389466-spirituality

Devotion means a certain single-pointedness – you are constantly focused towards one thing. Once you become such that your thought, emotion and everything is focused in one direction, Grace will naturally happen to you because you become receptive. What or whom you are devoted to is not the issue. If you think, “No, I want to be a devotee, but I have a doubt whether God exists or not” – these are the predicaments of a thinking mind. What you need to know is, God does not exist. But where there is a devotee, God exists.

The power of devotion is such that it can create the Creator. The depth of what we refer to as devotion is such that even if God is not existent, devotion can bring God into existence.

India: A Place Where God is Everywhere

Image result for indian kumbh

In Indian culture, there is no necessity that you must visit a “formal” temple. One can instantly convert anything into God, wherever they are. This is a wonderful technology, a tremendous manufacturing skill. Just a piece of stone can be made into God right there and you will see, by tomorrow morning, a thousand people will be worshipping it. This willingness to bow down even to a piece of stone is incredible technology. To be willing to bow down to anything is so simple, but it has been a powerful tool. A tree, a flower, a stone, a stick – it does not matter what – just being willing to bow down with an utter sense of devotion towards it. This simple willingness made India the biggest exporter of people to that which is beyond the physical.

This is why this land and culture was blessed with innumerable realized beings. Everywhere else in the world, if people have to bow down, it has to be of a particular form, otherwise they cannot. But if you are willing to bow down to a stone, a stick, an insect or a bird, one of them could become the doorway and something will open up – there is no end to the possibilities available to you. Because of this attitude, people opened up a billion possibilities everywhere.

13 Lesser-Known Facts About The Hindu Religion

The more you know about something, the better, especially in the case of religion. Regardless of which faith you belong to (atheism included), most of the major religions actually preach non violence, though that’s not always noticed by a number of ‘blind’ devotees. If you take a closer look, you’ll find that there’s a number of things that may surprise you about different religions, including Hinduism.

Here are some facts about Hinduism you may not have known!

1. The goal of life in Hinduism is to attain salvation, or moksha

Self realisation and freedom from the cycle of death and rebirth is the final goal.

2. Hinduism actually believes in only one god, but in many forms

The people choose which form they want to follow.

3. Hinduism is the 3rd largest religion in the world, after Christianity and Islam

In fact, 90% of Hindus live in India.

4. Hinduism believes in a circular rather than a linear concept of time

Time is divided into four ages – the Satya yuga (golden age of innocence), Tretha yuga, Dwapara yuga and Kali yuga.

5. The Rig Veda was written more than 3800 years ago, making Hinduism one of, if not the oldest religion in the world.

6. 108 is a sacred number in Hinduism and it is considered auspicious.

This is why malas and garlands have 108 beads. 108 is actually the ratio of the sun and the moon’s distance from the Earth.

7. It is one of the few religions that does not consider the pursuit of wealth a sin.

Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth (both material and spiritual), is testament to that fact.

8. The word ‘Juggernaut’ is actually derived from Lord Jagannath.

It was originally used to denote the Rath Yatra temple car, which was so massive it would crush devotees under the wheels.

9. Both male and female deities are worshipped with equal reverence in Hinduism.

This is also because in Hinduism, god is considered both male and female, or as the one who has no sex or both.

10. Om is actually believed to be the manifestation of consciousness in sound form.

11. Buddhism and Sikhism were both derived from Hinduism.

12. According to Hindus, the religion has no founder or origin.

13. Angkor Wat, Cambodia’s defining temple complex, was originally a Hindu temple.

It was built by Suryavarman II in the 12th century and originally dedicated to Vishnu, before it transformed into a Buddhist temple.
