No Meat Report: Day 31

So, this is my last day of the vegetarian August. I have managed to spend the whole month wihout any meat (including sea food).During this whole period I didn't have even one outburst of energy some people like to speak about while talking about vegetarianism. I also still remember the taste, the smell and texture of any type of meat I am used to eat so there also wasn't any forgetting period also mentioned in sync with vegetarianism. My left shoulder also started cracking back and fourth quite painfully during the movement which is why I had to restart the 5 Tibetan Rites to keep me from "falling apart" (it is not THAT bad, but it is annoying).I am pretty sure that a lot of people will want to tell me "I was doing it wrong". To you, I would like to say: "not eating meat is not a rocket science, all you do is not eating meat". I think all those positive effects people list are simply caused by the fanatism effect and mass "hysteria", you…

Pendulum experiment

So, I have executed a series of experiments to find out how pendulums actually work. Some of these experiments were run by me together with my wife, some were run by the former apprentice of mine and some by an old friend of mine. Experiment #1
In this instance it was needed to check the accuracy of the pendulum itself, so a random 2 cards (one red and one black) were selected. These cards were shuffled and put face down on the table without anyone knowing which card was which. The process was to use the pendulum find the red card. This experiment was within the scope of statistical error. Experiment #2
In this experiment the person shuffling cards took a peak at the cards before placing them face down on the table, this way the scryer didn't know which cards was which, but there was at least one person who knew. Thanks to this the scrying became accurate (about 80% success rate). Experiment #3
This one was done together with my former apprentice. Cards were laid face down as before…

No Meat Report: Day 20

So, it seems my body finally got used to the new diet as I gained back few of the pounds I lost on the ninth day. Yet I still think that this could be a very good slimming diet if combined with heavy exercises and cardio. But that's about as much of the benefit I find there. Frankly, if this wasn't a willpower training, I would be already getting me some meat.

No Meat Report: Day 17

So, nothing much to report, there is nothing better and worse than my usual self would have, maybe except there was some slight malfunction in my left shoulder few days ago, when moving it back and forth there was something jumping off and on again, making a clicking sound and it was slightly painful (more annoying, really).Maybe what I have noticed I am much more "mindful" person now in that I think about things and philosophy way more now, but that's simply because what I eat now is not as "heavy" and hard to digest, which might sound good but it also has a downfall, a heavy food is a great tool for the relaxation.I have to say this whole experience made me thinking, maybe I usually eat too much meat? Consider that normally I eat a meat based product at least twice a day and it is recorded that our ancestors normally ate meat just once a week. It's true that this was more based on availability of meat at the time, yet I guess it shouldn't be overdone,…

No Meat Report: Day 10

Well, I pretty much stopped feeling any different now, I am not tired anymore and hunger also seems not to be an issue. What got definitely worse is my alcohol tolerance, I got pretty much "destroyed" this Saturday and was sick whole Sunday.I also checked the scales yesterday and found out I lost 11 lbs of weight. I found it interesting as I eat still pretty much the same amount, just meat was omitted from the equation. It is even more interesting because if you remember that I had a no food fast quite recently which I was able to hold for 2 days and I didn't lose a single pound.

Spiritual poetry

Probably something that nobody knows is that I write poetry in my native language, a little poems with spiritual background that then go right into my drawer.

It's then of no surprise that I can enjoy a spiritual poetry quite a lot in all its forms. For example recently I found a following snippet online from a poem named Universal:
Everything belongs to one
We are universal
Hearts connected by love
Strange cosmic rehearsal
Life is flowing, like a dance
Loving, ever knowing
Hope and fear, lovely romance
Constantly reaping and sowing
...

This type of poetry is amazingly in sync with Kabbalistic teachings, and, actually, if you want to read more of it, you should visit a blog of its author: http://ninaintheair.blogspot.co.uk/

No Meat Report: Day 5

So, I am kinda tired, which might also be a result of my once again broken sleep cycle, and, I am also way more hungry. While I was eating meat, I was used to much longer breaks between meals, now it seems I get hungry more easily.I also managed to slip out of the "I can't eat meat" mood yesterday and was able to operate normally without constantly thinking about meat. I know this might sound obsessive, but you should understand I normally eat meat at least twice a day.This whole thing actually made be to respect vegetarians in a sense. There are so many types of meat and ways of preparing it and if you are lazy to do so yourself, you are free to visit any restaurant or fast food you want. In case of non-meat based meals, restaurants usually have a very limited options (usually fries and fried cheese), thinking about it now, I don't know where I will be going to lunches this whole month as the whole fried cheese thing is already getting ridiculous.Well, I hope I will…

Sophrology

Image
I have recently discovered Sophrology. It is not as old as progressive muscular relaxation or autogenic training I was talking about earlier, but both of these were of a great influence to the sophrology, founder of this scientific field also spent a great deal of time in Tibet and India, analyzing yoga and various practices to figure out what is really that useful part letting us relax, get rid of stress, headaches, sleep disorders, in simplicity how to become healthier without all that religionism.

Result is sophrology. I have found a very nice "sample" here:

No Meat Report: Day 3

So, this is my 3rd day of eating no meat. I have to say I really hope there is some "getting used to" period, because else all those reports like "I imediately had more energy/was more active" etc sounds like placebo now as I am very tired at the moment.
