    @federica you do not trust our arm chair moderating? :surprised: :open_mouth:

  • Re: Mindful Eating

    Indeed. Food scientists. It's a crazy thing they do.
    I have pretty good luck with junk food when I just don't buy it, which I mostly avoid by not going to the store hungry. It works out pretty well, lol. But yes, when it's here, I will eat all of whatever it is, even when I am full and even when it starts to taste bad. Even if it's been months since I ate it.

    Thank goodness celibacy isn't a prerequisite to enlightenment! :love: :blush:

    I do think it's possible a high level of connection with another person can contribute to enlightenment, including sex. But I don't think you get that from walking into someone's room and rubbing the magic lamp. I think it takes a mutual development of a relationship in a spiritual way for anything like that to happen.

    That's awesome! Minneapolis has a big Lego store in the Mall of America, which is really neat. I always wanted to go to Legoland in FL,but just couldn't justify the cost of yet another theme park when we were there. I'd probably just embarrass my kids anyhow.
