Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 03/20/17

“The compulsion for food, just like any other addiction, creates resistant neural webs that transform into deeply-rooted patterns of behavior that are difficult to transform. Oftentimes after undergoing a healing in which we are able to liberate denied feelings that were feeding a destructive behavior, we are able to free ourselves from some symptoms. But when we least expect it, often during moments of stress and emotional vulnerability, gluttony comes back in through the back door and we fall again. Certain neural webs need more time to be deprogrammed. In this case, it is necessary to use the sword of willpower. When gluttony comes back to get you in the same way, you affirm: ‘Enough! I am in charge of this body! I will no longer feed this addicted self inside of me.’ ”
