What are Fasting’s Subliminal Objections?
Sometimes we are subliminally conditions to reject the possibility of health out of health fasting.
One of the things that puts modern man against fasting is that health is seen as related to what we put in our bodies. It appears that many think we are sick because we have a pharmaceutical deficiency.
For example, I am always hearing about the need to get immunized for this or that.
When I was in barbering, the boss was going to pay for all the barbers to get their flu shots.
Two of us did not want them. It was interesting to watch them have the side effects of the shot. And I and the other barber did not get the flu. They got the side effect, and we did not. [Flu shots may be important to someone who has special health issues.]
There is currently an ad going around that you have to be immunized against whooping cough
or you are a danger to any baby you come in contact with.
I am not questioning their true belief in immunization. But they are subtly telling you that health is dependant on what you put in your body.
However they completely dismiss the fact that if you cultivate good health almost always your body will reject the disease out of hand. You will not get it. You come in contact with germs every day. But you do not get sick every day. Your healer within says no to the pathogens. This is self immunization.
I know of one lady that her daughter-in-law would not let her see her new grandchild because she had not taken something into her body. She was deemed to be danger because of a pharmaceutical deficiency, the inoculation. She was not sick and did not appear to be sick. She was the picture of health, but she had not taken the right things into her body.
[Jesus did say that those who continue to be sick are in need of a physician. Just asking. Why do we seek medical advice when we are not sick? Just a thought, not advise.]
Now when we look at fasting, we view it with jaundiced eye because we associate health with “healthful” intake, and that is diametrically opposed to idea that health can come or be enhanced by purposeful abstinence from things. We are conditioned to think, “You have to do something to be healthy.” So, you can not, not do and expect the end product to be health or better health.
I am not judgement of those who use immunizations. But the message of the salesman of inoculations is that you’re being sick or that you will become sick because of a pharmaceutical deficiency. They and their listeners completely discount the idea that working for a healthy body will also make your body immune from pathogens.
Others beat their drums about our depleted soil, processed foods, and such. They say that we are sick because we have a supplement deficiency.
[I am not discounting benefits from supplements. I have written much about them.] Other talk about balance in our diet; other preach about fat, eggs, meat, etc.
[I do think a health diet is important.] While they might be pointing out some important consideration, they are leaving the subtle thought that health is related to intake, and so if there is no intake, there can not be health or better health as a result.
No one is saying that you do not have to have intake or pay attention to your intake. But even to think that interrupted in take as in fasting becomes eccentric. It is not. It his natural. It is historic. It is proven to have a place in both returning health and maintaining health.
Many of these things may have their place as considerations for a more healthy lifestyle. But it appears that almost of the reasons given as a solution for health problems has to do with what we consume. Even when you consider a cleansing of an organ, it has to do with what you take in, a drug, herb, or vitamin.
You may get a strange look and the brush off is you said you could cleanse your organs by water fasting.
So, if you stop taking any thing in, the fear arises that you are not doing what you need for healing because healing is assumed to be related to intake. You are thought to be harming yourself. However in some, maybe many, cases this might be wrong, even dead wrong.
