The seeds absorb water and help to make the body less hungry.The ancient runners of the Americas use to eat these seeds and drink water before they ran extreme distances.In our fasting, we find ourselves being made new and, yes, that actually makes us happy. Escriva was fond of saying the happiness of heaven is reserved for those who learn to be happy on earth.When I fast, I try to remove from my life a crutch or an excuse I have been using to comfort me.The touch screen on my computer was actually promoting fast, fluid, and perfect touch.
Got a crush on Mitt Romney, or maybe one of his sons? It seems that America is going through a bit of a Mormon moment, with Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and "The Book of Mormon" bringing attention to the Latter-Day Saints in popular culture.I quiet walk with Jesus Christ throughout the season called Lent. In that time of communion with Him I find the comfort of God instead of the comfort of food and I get happier.Over the past 3 weeks have written about Hara Hachi Bu (stop eating when you are 75-80% full), walking like St.We are temples of the Spirit, and it's OK to use the gifts given to us to make that temple clean, beautiful, and thus more fit for the Spirit to dwell more fully within. I am speaking of taking the gift of fasting, practicing it, and then letting the whole person be blessed through reaping its many effects, spiritual and physical.The body loses weight and cleanses, the soul/mind becomes cleared of that chemically induced food fog, and our spirit is jumping for joy as we come closer and one with God.Chances are you've at least met a Mormon, but what are they like when it comes to dating?
