Diet and Fasting

Diet and Fasting

The Kingdom of Pineal defines health and wellbeing as the aspiration to achieve and maintain optimal quality of life as a human being. We believe that this can only be achieved by embracing a holistic approach to how we observe, relate, react and maintain a well-balanced, mental, spiritual and physical state of being.

As the health and well-being of the custodians of The Kingdom of Pineal are of central importance, we promote natural ways of healing above allopathic ways of healing.

Our natural ways of healing include several holistic modalities which have proven to be beneficial and enhance the natural physical tendencies of the body to heal itself:

We call this the A.U.R.A. approach: Acknowledge – Understand – Research – Action.

A.U.R.A. Approach

Acknowledge
when there is a disturbance in the balance of our being, the first step is to acknowledge what and where the root of this imbalance is.
Understand
the next step to understand the root of how and why this imbalance has occurred.
Research
once we acknowledge and understand the root causes of our imbalance, the next natural step is for us to find possible modalities of how best to restore balance in the most natural way possible.
Action
the final step is to take appropriate remedial action.

There are many health related remedial modalities observed worldwide, however, The Kingdom of Pineal particularly observes three core healing practices: Fasting (detox), Diet (restore) and Herbalism (rehabilitation). We have observed that for optimal healing, these three practices must be put into action cohesively.

Fasting – Detox

We believe that the physical body is geared towards self-healing. According to this perspective every symptom which is often seen as disease which needs to be combatted, is in fact an effect of the body trying to get rid of toxins.

These symptoms are what we observe as a sign of the self-healing capacity of the body. Hence, fever, inflammation, diarrhoea, vomiting, mucus, rashes, ulcers, exosomes (viruses) and even cancer are a sign that the body is trying to get rid of toxins.

Every measure taken to suppress these symptoms is in fact detrimental to the healing process. We believe that to support the body in its self-healing capacity there is one optimal method: fasting.

When the body ingests anything, its energy is focused on processing that intake. This is what is referred to as digestion. Fasting allows the body to solely focus on expelling the toxins without expending energy on digestion.

Diet – Restore

Although diet is commonly considered a matter of physical health alone, since the Law of Correspondence “as above, so below” is a fundamental truth of the cosmos, diet is a crucial aspect of emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.

Humans naturally have an optimal state of being; this is what we call being healthy. When we are not healthy, our being is in dis-ease. Optimal diet can aid our bodies in restoring balance and ease within our being.

Diet and consciousness are interrelated, this is where matter and spirit meet and commune. A pure, clean and light diet is an effective aid to clarity of consciousness or enlightenment.

The purification of our subtler spiritual levels depends upon the purification of our physical entity.

This makes sense when we realise that all that goes to constitute a human being is formed of energies of various types, and the only source of energy is that which is brought into the body through sunlight, air, water and food.

And of course it is material food that provides by far the greatest amount of the energy from which our complex multi-dimensional being is shaped.

When we realise that all physical objects have all the levels which we have, namely, the physical, bio magnetic, sensory and will bodies, we can understand the importance of the kind and quality of food we eat. This is in alignment with the Law of Correspondence.

For not only does the physical substance of the food become assimilated into our physical body, so also do the subtler energies become united to our inner levels.

We are what we eat.

It is obvious then that the food we eat is going to determine the quality that constitutes who we are as a being. Our food is a living organism vibrating at various levels of frequency, therefore, whatever food we consume is absorbed and assimilated into our own living human organism.

When we eat something, it not only affects us on all levels of our existence, it literally becomes us: we are indeed what we eat.

Since those bodies are formed essentially from the food we eat, they will be conditioned by and function according to the kind of energy extracted from the food. When the energies within us are positive, they produce harmonious states of mind and behaviour.

But when the energies are negative, they move in a random and chaotic manner and produce negative states of mind and consequently negative behaviour. Moreover, these toxic energies can also manifest as physical illnesses or defects. These toxic energies put our cells out of ease creating what we know as dis-ease.

Substances that are toxic to the body include animal flesh and liquids, alcohol, nicotine and processed drugs. These substances are toxic on the inner levels of a human being. Ingestion of these toxins poison all our bodies by inserting negative energies which are going to manifest as some form of disease.

On the other hand, fruits, vegetables and grains are reservoirs of pure photonic light energy which are nourishing and life sustaining energies. These energies are easily assimilated into all our bodies and are made to take on our specific, unique optimal vibrations and frequencies for us to thrive as humans.

Veganism and Fruitarianism

Veganism is not only a diet, it is the expression of non-violence in practice. It is the act of intelligent compassion embodied by a mindful and conscious choice to live by a consistent set of moral values.

Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation and cruelty to animals for food, clothing and any other purpose.

All animals just like humans have awareness of self which we might call conscious intelligence. Intelligent awareness is when a being can look into the eyes of another being, recognise its conscious awareness and then act accordingly in a compassionate manner.

It is also important to note that veganism is not another word for a plant-based diet as this is just one aspect of a greater whole. To be vegan means to do the best we can to avoid the products of death and violence.

Within the area of human health, The Kingdom of Pineal advocates for a whole food plant based diet with extra focus on fruits, dark greens and other whole foods.

A plant-based diet is rich in protein, iron, calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals. Sources of these nutrients tend to be low in saturated fat and high in fibre which leads to lower rates of heart disease, obesity, cancer and diabetes. Eating a variety of foods is an important key to good health when living a vegan lifestyle and should include fruit, legumes, vegetables, nuts and seeds, as well as a lot of leafy greens and whole grain products.

Raw Vegan

The well-being philosophy of The Kingdom of Pineal is that cooking and other various processes of food preparation destroys essential vitamins and minerals of the food that is being cooked thereby disrupting a food’s delicate balance of micronutrients.

It is also our belief that harmful chemicals can be produced when heat interacts with the proteins, carbohydrates and fats contained in natural food.

As far as spiritual health is concerned, the philosophy of The Kingdom of Pineal is that eating food that is uncorrupted and organic leads to a better connection with one’s spirit. By choosing a raw vegan diet, you are respecting Mother Nature and yourself by connecting with the earth and all of its biodiversity: this brings one closer to a spiritual connection.

A raw vegan diet includes: fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, grains or legumes and herbs.

Benefits of a raw vegan diet may include: weight loss, better digestion, increased energy, lower risk of heart disease, improved skin quality and life longevity.

This type of diet is often low in sodium, high in fibre and potassium and contains high levels of healthy phytochemicals. This all leads to lower risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

A raw vegan diet has been linked to lower levels of total plasma cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations which leads to a longer and healthier life full of energy. This is good for people at all stages of life, from childhood to old age.

A disadvantage associated with a raw vegan diet is not getting enough of the required nutrients that our bodies need for optimal health. This can only occur when a vegan diet is not balanced and holistic.

A balanced and holistic vegan approach does not just include what we consume through our mouths, but also what our bodies absorb through our eyes and skin. Human beings absorb many vitamins and nutrients by simply being out in nature in the sun’s light, breathing in fresh forest air and touching the soil and plants.

Conclusion

Animal energies were never meant for higher consciousness. They are lower conscious beings but conscious nonetheless at varying degrees. Consequently, animals cannot be attuned to anything beyond the most mundane perceptions. And so, here is where we find the connection and difference between human beings and animal beings.

However, the energies contained within fruits, vegetables, and grains, are subtler energies of light which can easily assimilate into the human spectrum of frequency.

The human physical body can easily digest the nutrients of plants. The bio magnetic soul body can easily assimilate the bio photonic light of the plants and the human conscious mind uses the plants energy as a connective channel to the most optimal states of human health and wellbeing. It’s a choice between life and death – not just for animals but for the Earth, ourselves and other people.
