"People who are happy don't use food to
sublimate. Food is supposed to be good
for you - not make you feel good!"
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~
All compulsive overeaters use food to
sublimate. Sublimation in layman’s terms
is any habit or technique we use to
alter or change our reality - for better
or worse! Sublimation methods of choice
are a great gauge to measure mental and
physical health. Poor choices are using
food, gambling, television, alcohol,
drugs, shopping, excessive sleep or too
many passive activities. Healthy choices
are meditation, visual imagery, prayer,
journaling, yoga, physical exercise,
relaxation exercises, deep breathing,
etc. Anything from lawn mowing to
vacuuming could be an act of sublimation
- IF done with high level of awareness
and concentration. A person who's high
up the ladder spiritually sees Higher
Power in all things at all times. Since
we sublimate regardless, the trick is to
make it a consciously controlled
positive sublimation rather than
subconscious negative sublimation.
ONE DAY AT A TIME . . .
I will consciously incorporate positive, healthy methods of sublimation.
