"I can think. I can wait. I can fast." ~Siddhartha

***WARNING** Please do your own research and consult your doctor before altering your diet.***

MG resumes the fasting discussion after recognizing there were a few items left on the "table."

Beginning with this passage from Siddhartha:

"I can think, I can wait, I can fast." The statement raised the question, "Can I really fast?"

More Siddhartha excerpt for additional insight and value: >>>><<<<
Is that all?

I think that is all.

And of what use are they? For example, fasting, what good is that?

It is of great value, sir. If a man has nothing to eat, fasting is the most intelligent thing he can do. If, for instance, Siddhartha had not learned to fast, he would have had to seek some kind of work today, either with you, or elsewhere, for hunger would have driven him. But, as it is, Siddhartha can wait calmly. He is not impatient, he is not in need, he can ward off hunger for a long time and laugh at it. Therefore, fasting is useful, sir.

>>>><<<<

Beyond the Siddhartha reference, fasting offers a relatively quick and powerful way to demonstrate self-efficacy, which is the ability to produce a desired result.

When you fast, you are telling yourself that you will not eat for a period of time, and therefore, when you do precisely that, you feel a sense of control, which is a key factor in happiness.

MG further points out that for those who may be looking for an inexpensive adventure, fasting fits the bill. Not only does it cost nothing, it ends up saving you money.

Further, fasting resulted in a both an increased level of energy and creativity.

***WARNING** Please do your own research and consult your doctor before altering your diet.***

"No man is free who cannot command himself." ~Pythagoras

***WARNING** NOT medical advice. Do your own research and consult your doctor before altering your diet.***

In long-form, discussion format, MG shares his experience with fasting for 36 hours, once-a-week (for 26 weeks).

Like the Burpee experiment that arose from a mediation last year, an early February mediation this year brought forth the idea to experiment with fasting, just once, for 36 hours (no food/no protein).

What began as a one-time experiment evolved into a half-year journey. In this episode, Martin discusses the experience from week one to week 26 and shares the good, the bad and the ugly.

The primary driver was simply to see WHO is in control? Reflecting upon Pythagoras' great quote, "No man is free who cannot command himself," the question became, "Am I really free or bound by impulse? Who is in control, my behaviors and body or my mind?" "Could I go 36 hours without food after a lifetime of being conditioned to eat whenever I felt hungry?"

As the journey progressed, MG learned about some of the amazing benefits of fasting, which include "autophagy," a process the body undergoes to remove or recycle damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells.

Another benefit of his experiment was seeing friends try their own 36-hour, once-per-week, fast.

***WARNING** This is NOT medical advice and should not be taken as such. Do your own research and consult your doctor.***

Enjoy the episode!

"You are energy and achieving your goal will require energy. Therefore, putting your energy toward creating and aligning habits that support your goals is the most efficient means to achieve them."

In the business world the phrase "return on investment" is fairly ubiquitous. People want to understand, for instance, how spending $1,000 on marketing or advertising will translate into greater sales.

In today's extreme, political and Covid-19 climate, many people are sucked into spending enormous amounts of time and energy debating and debasing the 'other' side.

The question is, what is the "Return On Energy" for those efforts?

Everything has a cost. The cost, as Thoreau put it, "is the amount of life you trade for it".

Where you put your time and energy always produces results. The question is, are they the results you are looking for?

Is the time and energy you devote to combating others within your social and social networking circles moving you favorably toward your goals and ideals?

Some people will devote hours and days of their life —enormous amounts of energy— trying to sway people to their line of thinking. Yet, the old adage remains, "A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."

With each new day we are "given" twenty-four, fresh hours of time and energy (hopefully) to direct toward our most important goals and ideals. Be sure your efforts produce a solid "Return On Energy".

Enjoy the episode!

"Remember this: The trend is your friend."

In Earnest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, there's a scene where Bill asks Mike, "How did you go bankrupt?" "Two ways," Mike responds, "Gradually, then suddenly."

We can find this, "The Law of Gradually, then Suddenly," nearly everywhere.

How does one get old? How did the oak tree get so big? How did you get fit or fat or wealthy or broke? Gradually, then suddenly.

Consider Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett's extreme wealth and how it was acquired. Chances are good they would answer the same, "Gradually, then suddenly."

For the most part this is how life goes, from gradually to suddenly.

Within the context of any given day, things are imperceptibly small and slow. Then, suddenly, the compounding effects are impossible to ignore. Gradually, then suddenly.

This is precisely how the force of habit compounds within our lives. The good or bad habits compound until one day they are impossible to ignore.

The beauty is, when we take the time to pause, observe and reflect, it's possible to identify a trend. Are we trending in a positive direction or not?

Nobody is ever trending favorably all the time. With honest observation, we can and should assess all the major aspects of our life (wellness categories) and correct course before it's too late. Thus, the trend is your friend, but you must take the time to pause, reflect, and correct course if necessary.

Enjoy the episode!
