Healthy Food and a Proper Diet, How Does One Decide? | Sadhguru

Questioner: So my question is
should we believe in that
like the qualities of vegetarianism,
practice them so that we make our body fit.
So that that kriya of eleven minutes will be more effective?
Sadhguru: See, this is what I have been saying right through
why even eating is a moral value?
Food is about the body.
We must eat what is suitable for this body
but right now you are talking about making food into a habit.
I want to tell you there is no such thing as good habit and bad habit.
Habit means you’re functioning unconsciously.
If you are functioning unconsciously,
that’s a bad thing
because the whole thing about being human is
we are capable of doing things consciously.
That is the beauty of being human
that we can do everything consciously.
What an animal does unconsciously,
we can do the same thing consciously.
We can eat unconsciously
or we can eat consciously.
We can breathe unconsciously or we can breathe consciously.
Everything that we can do,
we can do it consciously.
The moment we do something consciously,
suddenly that human being looks very refined and wonderful.
Just because somebody walks and speaks consciously,
doesn’t he become a beautiful human being?
Yes or no?
Audience: Yes
Sadhguru: That’s all.
So why is it that we are trying to develop habits as if this is a good thing?
Habit means fixed realities where you don’t have to think.
You get up in the morning and it’ll happen to you.
No, don’t try to automize your life.
That is not efficiency.
That is the efficiency of the machine.
This one is supposed to function intelligently and consciously.
Nobody is expecting it to function like a machine.
So, about food and stuff
food must be suitable for the body that we eat for.
It is for the body.
This is the building material for this body,
the food that you’re eating.
What is the appropriate food
unfortunately is all messed up right now.
Traditionally we ate very sensibly in this country
but these thousand years of invasions have brought other kinds of food cultures
and today the national diet is pizza or pasta.
What is it …which is one, I don’t know,
both were competing.
So we are losing our sense about food.
It’s definitely time to look at what is the most suitable thing.
If I go into that food,
it’s a very long process
but you must experiment with food,
not just by the tongue,
but by the body.
You eat something today and see
just learn to observe how agile and how active your body feels after eating this food.
If it feels like it wants to go to the grave, that’s not good food.
if it feels like it wants to be alive after eating this
except coffee because that’s a stimulant
if you eat food and your body feels very agile and alive
that means it’s good food,
body is liking it.
If you eat something, it feels dull, that means it’s not liking it.
It’s having difficulty with it that’s why it feels dull.
So just on this basis.
There’s a much,
I mean this is the very simplistic way of putting it.

    Everything in the world is natural and has many possibilitys of how one can see the same object diffrently, for example when im unhappy and I see happy faces my disturtion vision can persive it like they are happy that I final get it paid back of things I did to somebody, just see how many possibility you can create with a grim face our loud voice in a hall like that, that way you can become more ignorant of your thougths and be more at ease with yourself and take responsibilty of your thougths.

    Very nice and simple and to the point teaching

    look closely … you are looking in a mirror … It's your arrogance, or humility, that you are seeing …

    Okay, those are also mask to pull people. But still, also Sadhguru makes mistakes, and whoever has the personal demands to be completely honest with oneself and the audience in every situation? Sure, go for it !! If you want to take your right to see the mistakes of even great great people, go for it ! Everything in order to become evenmore honest with yourself. I know what tylermolander ment by saying "arrogant", and it´s just in some little parts of some of his speeches.

    one thing i am sure of :any thing man make or interfere with become somehow poison.our food should come from up or from down..from a tree or from the ground… washing it should be the only process going trough…about meats and animal product..I dont know…too much man interference.
    We still are the only living being not to know which is his own food.
