Happy Yom Kippur for those who celebrate it – although I don’t know if ‘happy’ is the right word, but you know what I mean.
It seems that several organized religions has days of fasting, and I think it is good.
It give your body time to clean itself out, and combining it with some yoga would really clean it out.
Fasting seems to mean different things to different people. I have several practicing friends who today fast in different ways, some don’t eat or drink anything, and others feel that it is OK if you drink just water, or some light fruit juice.
I guess it just depends on which traditions you choose to practice.
Note about yoga: If you fast for 24 hours, but are allowed to drink water, then doing yoga in the morning will really clean out your system because yoga simulates and massages the lymph glands, liver and other internal organs – with the ‘toxins’ getting flushed out by drinking a lot of water afterwards.
