    Fasting takes many forms. Fasting from worry, from self-condemnation, from self-righteous judgement, or anything that gives priority to oneself. Food fasting is positive but, IMO anyway, is the easiest. Fasting of our self-centred thinking is the challenge.

    I agree that one can use the concept of fasting in a self control context. After my experience, I do not believe food fasting is easiest. But it is rewarding to return to normal eating......the graham cracker cream pie had a narcotic effect on me.

    That is funny! Strawberries and fresh whipping cream would be mine. Can you tell it is strawberry season here?
