Beloved Babaji, with all surrender and pranams, i was recently diagnosed as being at risk to developing diabetes. How do i control my urge to overeat foods that may be harmful to me? Is it my destiny to develop this disease? with gratitude for all your answers, and Love Overflowing, happy ma
There could be hundreds of reasons for being diabetic in life. As I’ve said before I say it again, nothing happens in our life which is not destined to happen. And whatever happens has a purpose behind. And the purpose is always beneficial and good for us.
The path of spirituality is the path of loving one’s own Self and orient life in such a manner that whatever is thought or done is motivated by the higher purpose of attaining the knowledge of the Self. The concept of Urge, is essentially a movement in unconsciousness or unawareness or rather unmindfulness of what is beneficial to one’s own Self.
Once you confirm the fact,that your body is the most priceless gift and that this is the only body to unravel the ultimate mystery of the Universe and also the only instrument by which you can do service to God in order to reach to the ultimate state of unconditional surrender to the Divine, then you cannot do anything which is harmful to this most unique instrument available to you in this birth. Thus your mind body is too precious for you to take it casually.
Become conscious of the purpose of human birth, ask your self every morning when you wake up from your bed how you are going to move forward toward the Divine without surrendering to addictive behavioral patterns and unconscious urges. Your positive affirmation about your positive powers to act mindfully in order to heal the body and not harm it anymore is of paramount importance in enlightening your path toward higher attainment. Just your mindfulness of the supreme opportunity that life is and your deep conviction to have God vision will always put you on the right track.
Every night when you retire to bed, relax your body, meditate upon your breath, and then fill yourself with positive affirmation that you no longer need those foods which are harmful to you for any particular disease pattern and that the need for that food is no longer there in your soul anymore. And that you are healthy and happy with foods that are always conducive to good health and happiness. Early in the morning when you wake up, do practice the same technique once again but this time have the conviction that you are going to be very mindful throughout the day of not surrendering to instinctive urges but you will be surrendered to the Divine Light which is your Divine Essence.
Love and gratitude and good luck!
