To fast is a widely used way to attain mental cleanliness. To stop eating, namely junk, also affects the mind, in a beneficial way. We don´t attain mystical states just by stopping stuffing ourselves with food but it does help in making things be clearer. The most I was without eating was 17 days, now I will be 16. The objective is to help me getting rid of black energy that is launched against me every day, it will give me some clarity and focus. If I don´t succeeed I will die, so it´s a win-win situation, right? It´s a battle, I´ll win it.
