Lesson 81

"An oxygen diet consists of inhaling and exhaling deeply filling the lungs with fresh air down to the lower lobes this should be done either out of doors or by an open window and should be practiced from 6 to 12x every hour it should not however be undertaken by weak individuals or invalids."

Yogananda explains that our energy needs can be supplied by other means, like sunshine and oxygen,
rather then food alone.

Lesson 83 in review.

Since the foods one eats contains the building material of the body, and the condition of the body influences the disposition to a great extent, it stands to reason that the mind should take command and use discrimination in the selection of food.

As it is important to introduce the right food into the system so it is of equal importance to awaken the vital forces by proper exercise in order to develop the powers of digestion, assimilation, elimination, and all the steps in the process of converting the food into usable energy for the well-being of body and mind.

You understand the importance of making plaster for a house of the right ingredients, or of not omitting any of the ingredients in making a cake. If you forget to put some of the right materials in the cake you will find there is something wrong with the cake and so it is with the human body. Sixteen elements are necessary ingredients in good body-building. If any of them are omitted, there result  bodily defects which are called disease. So you see, it is up to you to see that you build your body of the correct materials including all of the necessary elements. All the proper food materials can be classified under the following: minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, fats.

Individuals differ in their needs as regards amount and proportion of these classes of foods. Occupational activity is one factor. The need of strengthening certain faculties and organs and body parts is another consideration. So it takes study of foods and study of your needs, in order to select your food properly.

Give attention to this lesson and note the corrections you should make in your own diet then start right away to do something about it. Practice the stomach exercise to stimulate and improve digestion.

It must be remembered that the lessons on vitalopathy are given to help you awaken the life force in each organ. You are not the body, not the breath, not the mind. You are the life of all beneath and permeating all; That in which everything in the universe has its being. Spirit alone, with its ever new joy has expressed itself into a vast body of nature. P.Y.

He explains that this method may be practiced outdoors while alternately walking slowly and resting. This aids spiritual growth.

That last post about the oxygen diet: "Inhale and exhale deeply from 6 to 12 times every hour"!!!! He apparently felt it beneficial!

Paramahansa Yogananda

The Master also mentions that; "Meat eating produces gross material reactions that develop the material or animal mental tendencies, whereas eating raw fruits and vegetables helps to reinforce and develop the spiritual qualities."

I found this fascinating;

The quality of the foods taste and color is reported to the brain through the nerves of taste and sight, and is experienced as specific pleasant or unpleasant sensations. These are elaborated by the kind into perceptions and conceptions. Dwelling mentally on certain conceptions about foods forms definite mental habits that manifest as material, active, or spiritual qualities of thought and behavior. P.Y.

....So it takes study of foods and study of your needs, in order to select your food properly.

Thanks Steve for reminding about this lesson which is a pillar of the metaphysics of food.

The mind MUST take command, and ignore the likes and dislikes. The mind must govern and rule the body that it eat only the healthy foods. It must be said that I exercise discrimination and like the healthy foods I eat whereas I dislike unhealthy foods, by the sheer fact that they are unhealthy. For example, I cannot eat ice cream or regular cakes or sweets now. They taste horrible because they are junk food.

Study of food: is what I'm doing now. There are so many opinions about food, but discrimination can and must guide us together with self experimentation. Modern metabolic science has given to us the power to tweak some main switches in the body by simple dietary intervention.

Yes I know exactly what you are talking about; 'the likes and dislikes' of the mind. I am attempting to eat more and more foods from the 'Daily Diet' (Lesson 82) Paramahansa Yogananda recommends. I have some preferences and other disinclinations. I am making an effort to change and not be so choosey because of what my taste buds desire.

The 'daily diet' in lesson 82 has been my guideline for the past 40 years and sure has served me well.
That's an outstanding example of balanced vegetarian diet and I'm not going to change it now, just tweaking it to my purposes.
