What do you do when life gives you lemons? You make lemon water.
Over the weekend I decided I need to do at least a three day fast. I’ve only done three days once with my writing partner. I asked her if she wanted to join me. She said she had already planned to do intermittent fasting. We always get similar ideas at the same time. She’s great support.
The reason why I am fasting is because there is so much going on in the world. I need to stop and get some clarity. As a creative it’s difficult to continue on with life when the world is going through turmoil. The world keeps giving us lemons. So here I am with the intention to focus on the world and not myself. Hopefully my tummy won’t get the best of me. I’m still trying to flesh out what my focus is. With so much going on, I want to stop and focus. Focus on the truth. What is the truth? I would love for the truth to come out. I realize not everyone can handle the truth, but some can. With fasting, I can focus on peace and love and come out with some understanding. I don’t consent to the lockdowns, the face masks, the vaccine, and all the tyranny. I’m supposed to be a free American. And so I must fast for justice for all.
I’ve mentioned before how I started fasting at about twelve years old or maybe I was ten. I read comedian/activist Dick Gregory’s book Dick Gregory’s Natural Diet for Folks Who Eat: Cookin’ with Mother Nature. I think it was my mom’s book. I don’t know what happened to it. I grew up watching Dick Gregory as a comedian. He just said the truth. He didn’t filter himself. And he was a thinking man. He didn’t repeat others. He didn’t believe what the press was telling him. He saw with his own eyes and said what he saw not what someone or the press told him he saw. And how timely that Showtime has a new documentary about activist Dick Gregory.
Right now, I am having a glass of lemon water. It tastes refreshing. So I look forward to drinking lemon water tomorrow. If you’d like to fast for one of the days I am fasting then join me. I’ll post my thoughts and my hunger pains each day. I’m looking forward to my protest.
