Going Mental

During the counterculture’s religious experimentation of the 1960s and 1970s, I was introduced to the old Sikh gurus’ recipe for health and happiness: vegetarianism, fasting, yoga, and meditation. Over the ensuing decades, my use of these disciplines led to the discovery of how food energy affected my personality.

Vegetarianism, fasting, yoga, and meditation are all energy manipulation techniques. Vegetarianism and fasting go hand-in-hand with yoga and meditation because they reduce one’s energy, allowing for a calmer personality facilitating yoga and meditation’s mental discipline aspects. The basic conceptual metaphor is that when water flows through a garden hose (relatively lower energy), it is easier to manipulate than when it flows through a firefighter’s hose (relatively higher energy). With the flow of energy reduced, one’s mind, body, and personality are easier to control. By altering our energy level, we can change how we mentally and emotionally react to everyday situations, and we can build a personality of our own choosing.

The energy level that we sustain creates certain types of thought patterns and emotional responses. For example, increasingly higher energy levels will result in a progression of high energy personality traits: high mental noise, low patience, frustration, anger, rage, closed mindedness, elitism, paranoia, refusal to submit to authority, and sociopathic and homicidal tendencies. Lower energy levels will also result in a progression of associated traits: timidity, fearfulness, lack of enthusiasm, depression, low self-esteem, insecurity, lack of independence or self-respect, purposelessness, and suicidal tendencies.

Various energy levels elicit certain responses from others, depending on the surrounding cultural norms and morals, and therefore affect the quality of our lives. As we lower or raise our energy, we experience various stages of altered reality or consciousness that affect not only our own lives but the lives of those around us as well.

Higher energy levels are harder to control but can manipulate physical reality to a greater extent. Lower energy levels produce observational qualities such as prescience, empathy, intuition, and precognition. Lower energy levels can manipulate reality to the same extent but in a very different, much more subtle manner. Whereas high energy tends to tear down and rebuild reality in its own image, low-energy reality manipulation creates a space for new, spontaneous co-creation; it works with, around, and from within to alter reality. High-energy personalities tend to be very restrictive and controlling, whereas low-energy personalities tend to be more accepting and open to new things.

Too high of an energy level can cause things to start breaking down. People won’t be able to stand being around us and we’ll push imperfect people out of our lives. We’ll grow angrier and more violent to the point we can no longer control our actions or think clearly. We’ll spend a lot of time and effort handling (or mishandling) our energy. Our excess energy will make us do or say things we’ll later regret or get us ostracized from the society we live in, and eventually we’ll recede into our own world. Unfortunately, many people who never take steps to reduce their excess energy wind up in jail or mental institutions or arm themselves in fortified compounds.

Anybody who has experienced alcoholism or drug addiction can attest to the life-destroying effects of extreme energy dissipation. The life we have created begins to break down our home, relationships, health, family, and job. People disrespect us and take advantage of us. We aren’t any fun to be around because we are constantly sick, injuring ourselves, depressed, or always the victim of our circumstances.

Our individual energy level ultimately determines the life we live through its interaction with others and the surrounding society and environment. By learning to use our energy and manipulate it consciously, we can decide what life we will lead and the quality of our experiences.

Energy: The Overlooked Human Commodity

Physicists seek to explain the universe through a unified field theory by observing the attributes of the smallest particle of energy. This is theoretically possible because everything is made of energy; our food, clothing, computers, galaxies…even we are made of energy.

Energy doesn’t ever get used up completely. It gets traded around, passed off from one thing to another infinitely. We expend our personal energy at work and get paid with money (which represents the energy we expended) and trade that money for items others have used their energy to produce (food, clothing, fuel, etc.).

Energy is used to build things which results in a static or stored energy state (our physical bodies, plants, wood, oil). Energy also exists in various dynamic energy forms, such as wave energy, particle energy, and forms that resemble both wave and particle. We don’t really understand just what energy is, but we observe its effects and how it acts, and can harness it for our own purposes based on these observations. Living things use its DNA pattern to create a life form out of the energy it consumes and absorbs. Even what we call inanimate objects of mineral composition, use a matrix pattern unique to its form to do the same thing.

The various types of dynamic energy affect us in different ways, positively and negatively. Sunlight has a mostly positive effect, whereas gamma ray radiation is mostly negative. We have created various devices to sense, measure, and set safe limits on the many forms of dynamic energy we are subjected to. A Geiger counter can tell us how many units of radiation are present. We know that X units of radiation is dangerous to our health because we have observed the damage caused by exposure to X. We know in the presence of X, Y happens.

Food energy is the same. We can burn food (outside the body) and measure how much that released energy will raise water temperature (units known as calories). This provides some relative measurement of the food’s energy when comparing different foods but doesn’t fully describe what the food’s energy effect is inside the body. We can’t watch the energy being released inside the body from the food we eat, we can’t watch the body react to it, absorb it, or use it. We can however, observe the results of food energy effects on the body and mind.

Food’s various externally measured qualities have been shown to react differently once inside the body. High acid content citrus fruit, for example, is acidic outside the body but creates an alkaline condition once it gets inside the body. Additionally, every food has a unique effect on our stored energy level (beyond its caloric content) which affects our strength, stamina, and internal systems (organs, immune system, regenerative system, mental processes).

There is only one instrument that can measure the effects of food energy internally and that is the human body through its senses and physiological reactions. The body can be seen as one big complex device that will indicate food related energy levels. With a little calibration through experimentation, attention to detail, and experience over time, we can learn to use this aspect of the body to our great benefit.

Just as too much radiation or sunlight can cause physical damage, so too can too much food energy harm us. Just as not enough sunlight can cause ill effects, so too can too little food energy. We can train ourselves to use our senses and observe that in the presence of X food, Y happens to our body, and take steps to correct the issue by removing, reducing, or increasing X.

All the little nagging minor health symptoms, many chronic symptoms, and even disease, can be a result of too high or too low food energy. Our immune and regenerative systems, the two main pillars of our health, are largely controlled by the energy we consume. They do not function properly without the right level of energy.

Consequently, we can explore and explain the universe of our body through the observation and manipulation of the energy we subject it to.

Dissipation

We spend most of our lives trying to dissipate our energy. Even if we don’t have enough energy we consume substances and engage in activities that dissipate what little we have. We do this because we live in a society that has an over-abundance of energy. Beef, dairy products, and salt are the foundation of our Western culture, all of which are high energy foods.

This diet has given rise to a sub-culture of dissipation: alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, the sex trades, partying, sitting in front of a TV or computer screen all night, and sugar and chemical laced convenience foods. It’s a standard of habits that we grow up in and get carried away with before we can gain an understanding of what we are doing to ourselves.

When we hit middle age, our body goes through drastic changes for various reasons. Our health begins to suffer because we have dissipated our supporting energy for so long that our organs begin to fail, we get cancer, and we become sickly shadows of our former selves. This condition is reversible if we are willing to put in the time and effort required.

The main hump to get over is that our habit of dissipation has trained us to be fearful of any kind of energy buildup. A healthy store of energy has become uncomfortable. Habit retraining and consumption of energy building substances while eliminating the dissipating influences will result in a healthier and more satisfying experience in our senior years.

What Is Healthy?

How do we define healthy foods? I define foods as healthy if they cause no net decrease in our health. These foods must support our health and build us up in such a way as to provide sufficient energy and nutrients to maintain our internal systems. Our internal systems require a certain level of energy to function properly. If those requirements are not met, our health begins to suffer.

The confusing issue is that these requirements are largely unique to the individual. Compounding the confusion is the fact that our social and commercial definition of what is healthful changes over time.

We know what we feel like when we are healthy and when we are sick, but most of us, at one time or another, don’t have the faintest clue as to whether something is healthful or not. At first, somebody must tell us the difference—and herein lies the big problem. Most of our ancestral information on how and what to eat and how to live our lives in a healthy way has been run over by the fast-paced and prepackaged life we live. We have lost touch with the earth and what is naturally healthy; we can’t even get that individual information from our intuition or experiences anymore, as our taste preferences have been trained to crave health-damaging, even deadly, foods.

So, we are left to figure it out on our own, reading this or that report, claiming health benefits for all types of products. Additionally, what’s healthy for one person may not be healthy for another. If we eliminate the questions of quality and nutrients, what remains is the individual energy requirement of each person. We can buy the finest quality organic, locally sourced, family-farm-raised, grass-fed beef, confident that it is perfectly healthful. If our energy pattern is such that we need the high energy of beef, then we will thrive on it. However, if our energy pattern clashes with beef, if the beef gives us too much energy, then it will not be healthy for us. Food is healthy if it a) harmoniously meshes with our energy pattern, b) is minimally processed and free of health-harming additives and chemicals, and c) provides the nutrients our body needs.

We can begin to build our personal database of what is healthy or not by observing the early warning symptoms that our body and mind exhibit, and by attempting to correlate the symptoms with our recent consumptive habits. These symptoms (body odor, runny nose, aches and pains, skin issues, infections, constipation, diarrhea, gas, impatience, anger, depression, etc.) alert us to imbalances or deficiencies that can be addressed in a timely manner to avoid illness and disease in the future.

New Relationships

Become a weepy, whiny, depressed, co-dependent mess several months into a new relationship? Regular sex is the culprit. If you don’t replace your energy loss caused by all the new sexual activity quickly enough, your energy stores are gradually drained, compromising your immune system and negatively affecting your mental state. The issue is compounded by the typical social habits associated with romantic courtship that also drain your energy such as alcohol and drug use, and less sleep.

The issue is easily solved by rationing the sexual activity and cutting out all sweets, fruits, tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, and recreational drugs along with increasing your consumption of whole grains and/or red meat. A few good night’s sleep will also go a long way to rebuilding your energy, stamina, and healthy outlook on life.

Basics

The basic concept of the energy manipulation technique is that by being aware of our body’s energy level and quality we can prevent, diagnose, and cure physical and mental health issues. Our own actions (or inaction as the case may be) are largely to blame for most of our pain and suffering.

We cause our own health problems by allowing our energy to get too high or too low, or by allowing ourselves to be exposed to harmful substances such as recreational drugs and food additives to industrial and consumer chemicals.

The body must maintain a system-wide balance of energy as well as an individual balance in each organ or internal system. If an imbalanced condition is maintained for too long, illness, disease, and eventually death will occur. Our energy level and quality are directly affected by the substances we ingest or absorb through our environment.

The regenerative and immune systems are the two main functions of the body that assist in keeping ourselves healthy. The survival of these two critical systems depends entirely upon the energy we supply them, and in return are depended upon by all other systems and organs for their survival and operating efficiency.

Energy balance issues are communicated to us by what we have come to call “symptoms”. Everything from a runny nose to cancer is our own body warning us that corrective action is needed.

By controlling the energy we take into ourselves every day, we can support our internal energy in a positive way and prevent health issues from developing.

Our Children

The greatest gift we can give our children is a healthy diet when they are young. They may grow up and eventually discard any diet we impose, but by protecting them from chemical laden, nutritionally hollow, sugary, or salty foods their body has time to build a strong immune system and internal organs that will carry them well into old age. If we provide them with low quality adulterated foods when young their bodily functions are compromised and begin to break down at a much earlier age. By feeding them a fast food diet, we also teach them bad eating habits that will burden them for the rest of their lives.

It’s easy to fall into the habit of a poor diet raising children. With our fast-paced lifestyle and two income households there is usually little time to cook three meals a day, so pre-cooked and easily prepared convenience foods are hard to resist. Peer pressure to eat candy and junk food is ever present and virtually irresistible to young children through TV marketing. Day care and the public-school system where our children eat once or twice a day are more concerned with economy and profit than healthy food.

The scientific/medical community largely resist the obvious ill effects of a poor diet simply because it’s many aspects haven’t been scientifically proven. While this proof is being sought independently, food corporations are busy with their own propaganda studies that obfuscate the issues in their attempt to protect their profit and market share.

At the very least, most of the food we eat and feed our children should be food that supports health. Three times a day or more we are presented with an opportunity to sustain and even build our family’s health. We create our future health every time we put something in our mouths. Do we want a family that is addicted to the nutritionally hollow and destructive effects of fast food, junk food, and convenience food? Or do we want to provide our loved ones with unadulterated food that supports health and provides them with a healthy future?
