Food We Take Determines Our Character
When you take your food next time, take care of the food what you are taking. Because the food you take determines your character. Not able to believe this. But it is true.
Although many other reasons determine the character of a man, food becomes an important part in determining the character of everybody.
Mind controls one's action, and speech. Decision making ability is the important functions of a mind.
Decision making ability is depending upon the food we take.
Vegetarian food enhances intelligence. Even though the non-vegetarian food contains some energy vital for the human body, the same energy is available more in the vegetarian foods also.
The direction you are sitting to take food is also important. Facing eastern direction will be good.
Whether the mood of the person who is serving the food or preparing the food will affect your health. Yes, definitely.
When the person who serve you food or cook the food is in a happy mood naturally it will reflect in the food he is preparing.
Not only that when we take that food it will digest easily and we can also enjoy the real deliciousness of the food.
If the person cooks or serves with angry, decease, depressed mind, lust, hatred, then even the nutritious containing in the food become useless to us and cause more problems like indigestion, etc
I can explain it with one real example. There is one famous Hindu shrine in India.
There are thousands of cows belonging to the shrine. They gush milk and it is utilized for the purpose of temple rituals.
The temple authorities found sudden spurt in the gushing of milk from the cows. Then they find the reason after some difficulty that it was because of the audio system near the shelters where the cows are housed.
It is the routine of the temple authorities to broadcast devotional songs at specific intervals. They found that when a particular song is broadcasted the cows are gushing much milk than normal gushing.
So the power of music through the senses, increase the gushing of milk.
Another real incident is the soldiers in an army unit were used to give fresh and condensed milk every day for the better maintenance of health and for their better fighting capability.
But the story of gushing milk from the cows in the camp is very interesting. Before gushing the milk from the cows, the young calf will be released free.
By that time the dog in the camp will also be released. On seeing the dog, the calf began to run out of fear. Unable to tolerate the sufferings of the calf, which is chasing by the dog, the cow as a "mother" become in an angry mood.
The milk gushing by that time from the cow that was in an angry mood contains more nutritious which is essential for the fighting capability to the soldiers.
At least now we believe that the mood of the person who serve us, indirectly affecting us, if the food is prepared and served in a wrong mood.
