Food is anything that can be consumed. It could be material. It could be information. It could be energy. It could be space. It can be consumed and it can be imbibed. What you consume or imbibe becomes you. You are what you food. You are food. You are part of the food chain, literally and figuratively. What kind of food you are depends on what you pay attention to. What you pay attention to becomes food for thought, whether you like it or not. Pay attention to what you pay attention to and you know what is that you consume, and what becomes of it. You become the food you consume and imbibe.
As clichéd as it may sound, there really are two aspects of us that are poles of each other - lets call them the archetypal 2 wolves (honouring the ancestors whosoever introduced the idea of the wolves to the masses). What we eat feeds either the healthy wolf or the unhealthy wolf (I degress from tradition here - they are not the good and the bad wolves).
When we eat our veggies and drink our milk and honey, the healthy wolf gets stronger and has us choose healthy constructive lifestyles and healthy quality of life than we would have asked for. When we feed us a lot of coke, fried potatoes, more meat than our body needs, and cigarette and alcohol, the unhealthy wolf is happy and gets us into more trouble than we would have asked for.
Bon appetit !
Everything is food; depends on the proportion.
Everything is poison; depends on the proportion.
This image represents the proportion of Sattvik, Rajasik and Tamasik foods required to maintain health and activity in a constructive (libidinous) tendencies and lifestyles. Disproportion leads to destructive (destrudinous) tendencies and lifestyles.
(Will update this post with more info on the 3 types later).
Dripples (drops n' ripples) attempts to invite a relook at our current definitions, what we know and don't know, of our selves, at health and of life itself, and perhaps have a perspective that is new.
