[3/3] Fasting notes
6:30h: I'm such a rookie. This morning I feel great, peaceful mind, right energy levels. But this unbearable thirstiness is awful. Upon waking up, not only my mouth, but also my eyeballs felt dry. Then, I recalled that I was supposed to drink water with a pinch of salt to keep me hydrated (ಥ﹏ಥ).
13:15h: All is good. Drinking saline water made a huge difference. Two cups of black coffee, no anxiety at all.
14:45h: Inexplicably, I feel so happy.
16:50h: As I'm reaching the end, I feel a tad bit uneasy. Counterintuitively, with more energy and clarity than yesterday around this time.
17:30h: I have finished the task I had planned for today. My brain could keep up just fine.
It is done. I'm still alive.
I started with some berries from the garden, then two bowls of beef broth with vegetables, and finally some pieces of pure chocolate.
Actually, I'm feeling a bit drowsy now. A heck lot of energy is needed for digestion!
It is interesting how the eating experience change after a prolonged fasting period. You're able to taste more subtle flavours. The processed food with strongly artificial flavours causes repulsion.
At some point today, I recalled something Dr. Jamnadas mentioned during an interview: fasting is an empowering experience for many people. It was for me. I believed fasting this long was completely unattainable for me just one year ago. This is empowering. Now I'm even thinking I will eventually speak Dutch fluently one day. Who knows, everything seems less impossible now.
