Fasting days 3-5 with no food and only water.
I shut myself completely off from the world. I didn’t use any phone, computer nor TV. I didn’t even listen to music. For some funny reason, I was left to be alone for the whole duration of my fasting period and I wonder why, seems like the planets vere aligned perfectly for that 🤔
Around that time, the time stopped and all the problems and worries dissapeared. The whole time it felt like I was kind of floating, instead of pulled down by gravity. Especially on moments when I was lying in my bed and forgot myself there for probably good few hours at times. It’s a great feeling, not to feel much, other than peace.
On these days, I wrote.. and I wrote a lot. And this is where it gets interesting. Throughout all the religions, fasting is something that was used, to meet “god”. It’s the time of revelations. Now don’t think that some fella will pop down and has a little “bro moment” with you. The best way I can describe all this, is that you will literally connect with yourself in a way that you’ve never done it. We think that we know ourselves and trust me, we probably don’t. At least not as much as we’d like to. Your ego and everything else is put aside and something just flows out of you. When I was writing I didn’t think, I didn’t have to think for a second what I had to say next. It just poured out. In a perfectly logical manner. And this is what the “time of revelation” means, you find out shit about yourself you didn’t know existed in you. I could’ve set up a damn writing club with Socrates. Fasting’s cool as fuck.
