There are many things we do on a daily basis, but every now and then we need to stop and ask why?
Why do we do this? What is the real reason?
Here is an example.
Some people pray and ask for their food to be blessed before eating it. But why? The most likely answer you will hear is, because that’s what the Bible says. Ok that might be the reason people believe it is done today, but I always like to look deeper, or further.
I believe humans have been on this planet for tens of thousands of years. This being said, what we think we know about our behaviour has most probably been lost or forgotten over time. We have short memories, and it seems our storytelling skills aren’t very good either. So we only remember the latest story we were fed, which in this case happened only 2000 years ago (sorry if I got the date wrong, but you know what I mean).
But were humans blessing their food before this?
Difficult to know for sure, research would need to be undertaken. But let me bring in some interesting research done by one Dr Masaru Emoto (http://www.masaru-emoto.net/) into the discussion.
Dr Emoto performed experiments on water where he exposed it to words, spoken and written, thoughts, and music. The words, thoughts, and music consisted of both “good” and “bad” types. After the exposure, the water was frozen and the crystals were observed under a microscope. The result? Water exposed to “good” formed beautiful symmetrical structures. Water exposed to “bad” did not form at all.
So what could this mean?
Talking or thinking towards our food and drink appears to actually change its state. If it is a good message, it would “appear” that our food and drink may actually change for the better. This leads to the possibility that this practice may have been known to humans long before the Bible was ever written, but subsequently lost over time.
I like to believe that at some point in our history we knew the reason why we gave positive energy to our food and drink, but over time we just forgot. It would be interesting to see if there is any mention of this in the Vedic texts.
So, continue sending positive thoughts to your food and drink, and if you don’t, perhaps it’s time to start.
I will delve into other everyday habits in future blogs, and try to understand where they come from. The next will be “Lemon juice, natural selection”
