I know some folks here do not believe in God, but once I was reading Bible and this verse was just so perfect: Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.-Genesis 1:29 Thats lfrv-ism right there! I believe that humans were designed for this kind of lifestyle and to claim otherwise is almost ludicrous. I would not enjoy living off of air or sunlight, I've tried that way to many times in the past (starving to lose weight). I would hate my life again! But this,-low fat raw vegan, fresh ripe fruit, veggies and greens, it's perfection, doesn't get any better. No matter what kind of program any human being will try to come up with, it will come nowhere near this natural life style. Lol I love food (the real food aka fruits etc) waaaay too much to even consider the validity of breathairianism. I know some would beg to differ, but this is just my take on it :)
+1, except for the fact that I don't believe in God. It's still a great quote though.
with all respect, then why is your username that of a goddess? ;0) just curious?
could be her given name just like my user name and I am assuming your user name. I have a friend named Athena oddly enough I also have a friend named Panther. These are their actual names that their parents named them. Athena is a beautiful name :)
... Humans cannot perform photosynthesis. Even plants, who can perform photosynthesis, take in nutrients from other plant and animal matter (mass is neither created nor destroyed), and drink water through their root system.
I'm sorry this poor woman died, I'm sure she must of had some incredible visions on her spiritual journey, but it's dangerous to gamble with death just to get a high. Even people on water fasts at least take in WATER.
I love that! First chakra comes first, you know. Taking care of the physical, before going all space case, is a must.
Not sure if anyone's mentioned this yet, but there's a great documentary on the subject of bretharianism and sun gazing. It's called Eat The Sun. I enjoyed it.
Yeah, in the documentary, the protagonist goes to get some serious eye tests done, and the outcome is interesting. Not sure if I should include a spoiler though ;)
include the spoiler, please! it's a breatharian movie, not the new episode of Walking Dead. Or... actually, that depends on how you feel about "breatharians." Hehe.
The protagonist finds out from doctors at a reputable eye specialist center that he has fairly severe damage in his eyes. I don't remember the particulars of it, but it had the doctors strongly suggesting that he stop sun gazing. Later in the movie, we find out that the guru who claims to have been living on sunlight for years frequents a local Indian buffet on the down low. Our adventurer reaches his main sungazing goal (of working up to a certain per-session sungazing length), and then goes back to leading a regular life (and starts eating again).
I definitely found the movie entertaining, and I appreciated that it included some positive and some negative opinions on the matter.
LOL the ever-enticing world of strange and unusual ideas. you gotta just feel bad for these people. thank god the eye-damage guy put the brakes on it before it was too late! thanks for sharing, Bart
well, the funny thing is, he did not put on the break...he continued in spite of the damage....just to finish the 44 minutes at one standing. He really wanted to find out if there is anything special with that amount of sun gazing at one time, daily.
I found him very sweet, and loved his adventurous spirit.
