Day 60 of the Fruit Feast. Today is officially two months as a 100% Raw Fruitarian. i have to say, i am having no cravings for anything but sweet fruit now. This time around is so much easier because of the elimination of salt cravings. After two months i have lost a total of 10lbs (as previously blogged, i weight 203lbs right now at a height of about 6 feet tall). i feel very strong, but know i will get stronger and more fit as the summer comes on. For example i did 400 push ups today along with 80 chins. It felt great! Every part of the Bible that i read is coming alive to me. Not that it wasn't alive before, but my level of awareness of the Spirit of Life in Christ is much higher. The exciting thing about that is, i know it will only increase. It is my determination to one day reflect perfectly, the Image of Christ. This diet, which i believe is the Original Diet the Creator gave to our parents Adam and Eve, is a tremendous help in this goal. i believe it helps clear the mind and souls for a stronger spiritual connection. What i am realizing though is this connection can be for either the Holy Spirit, or the spirit of the arch deceiver of all. For i see some choosing the former and others the latter. What i notice about those in the latter category is, most of them have no idea what they are doing. This is partly because when one begins to reach higher levels of consciousness, one tends to think its all good because its all new. But there are two spirit worlds vying for the control of the human habitation, of this i am always aware. One is the Spirit of Truth, the other of deception. The truth is honest, but the deception is powerful and deadly. Ask Adam and Eve.
John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
Its also interesting to me that, this April will be the end of 6 years on the raw path. May will begin the 7th year and i think it would be fitting if i began a permanent Fruitarian lifestyle in the 7th year. i think that would be very cool. If it continues as it is now, it will not be a problem at all. i have noticed my family gravitating towards increased fruit intake. The power of example is indeed stronger than words. Praise the Lord from Whom all Blessings flow!
Breakfast: 7 mangoes, 32oz smoothie (celeryjuice, honeydew, 4 dates)
Lunch: Large fruit salad with orange-date sauce.
Dinner: Smoothie made from leftover fruit salad and orange juice. 3 mangos. Sugar Cane.
Spiritual bread: 1Cor 3-5, 2 Sam 1-4
Exercise: 4 mile walk, 400 push ups, 80 chins. i tried a different way of doing my sets today. i did staggered sets. i started with one set of 60 pushups with 12 chins. i did this twice. Then i did the same thing twice with 50 pushups and 10 chins. The 40 and 8 and so on, ending up with 10 sets each. It took about 45 minutes and it was very satisfying. i think i will try the same principle with my leg work on the next workout.
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
