Explaining Txgvng Fast

Explaining Txgvng Fast

Fasting achieves numerous benefits. It is a wonderful way to clean
out the body as far as health is concerned.

Spiritually, it also cleanses the soul.

For both, I am not discussing one (1) day fasts. My fasts run from
4-6 days.

Originally, fasting was used to 'get closer to the higher being.'

It was also used to rid sick bodies of diseases. This was copied from
watching animals when they are ill. They either eat greens or nothing
at all.

Modern times has shown fasting to be a form of protest - thus, the
death of Barry Horne. Gandhi also used fasting to bring his point

My fast is in HONOR/REMEMBERENCE/REVERENCE of the millions of animals
that are tortured, abused then slaughtered just for this one (1) day
alone in the U.S.

It came about when I could no longer go to family gatherings for this
'holiday' and sit around a table infested with dead carcass and
Even the 'religious' holidays were laughable as we traipsed to our
building of worship only to traipse back to a home full of death,
abuse and chemical irresponsibility.

I have had numerous opportunities to join like-minded folks for a
holiday feast, but prefer to not look upon this holiday as a festive
occasion. Why? Because it also represents false facts throughout
american history. Native Americans were thwarted into slavery and
near-annihilitation by the 'white man' in the name of 'god.' Recent
findings are coming out that there was no turkey - or even any kind
of 'meat' - at the dinner; only fruits, vegetables and grains.

Then, back to modern times, it always bothered me that after these
dinners, the male attendees would gather together in front of a
television set to watch the bloodsport known as 'football,' leaving
the women (slaves again to the 'white man') to clean up and watch
after the children.

I hope this explains my 'point.'
