Become aware of yourself. Part I 

When we buy a car, an appliance, a watch, a cell phone ... the first thing we do is remove it from the wrapper, well, except the car. The next thing is to observe it with a mixture of curiosity and amazement. A marvel of technology! The most advanced in HST! We have no idea what is HST, but it sounds good and in advertising was emphasized that it was the most advanced ... in HST Nor do you need to have bought something very sophisticated. Who does not fancy a shake after buying a blender? ... And evaluate for ourselves how it leaves the texture smooth, without lumps, with all the amalgamated fruit ... If we have even put larger pieces than usual to verify the performance of our four-speed blender with turbo Split function and system Non-slip that allows you to work on wet and sloping surfaces ... Was it necessary??? Does your blender not work on sloped surfaces? Sure, you do not have the latest in HST. Well, do you know that there is no more advanced technology on the planet than the one you're wearing? Because getting back to the blender issue. Neither yours, nor mine, nor the most sophisticated kitchen robot can tell you if your shake is lacking sugar, has too much banana or would look better with a little cocoa. Instead, it is enough for you to take a teaspoon, dip it in the smoothie and put it in your mouth. Now the question: How many times a day, a week, a month ... do you eat without knowing what you are eating? Without tasting, enjoying what is brought to the mouth?  None  Sometimes when I'm in a hurry  Almost always, I eat mechanically.  I eat very fast, I chew little and everything tastes the same Here you have the link of an experience made by psychologists and doctors. It's simple, but okay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wxk1GaznDWo If in the previous survey you marked none, congratulations! Surely you eat without haste, almost all foods satisfy you, eat less than you believe and have excellent digestion. You are present at the time you eat, you enjoy eating and your mind is aware of the act of eating. If you scored any of the last two, you probably will not be aware of how wonderful your own body is. Let's do an experiment. Do not think it's silly and you have so many things to do! Take a piece of bread that you always use to accompany your meals, or a cookie. 1. Cut a small piece and listen carefully to the noise it makes when it breaks. 2. Look closely at the crust and crumb. 3. Take it. Surely your salivary glands have begun to excrete saliva (mine too as I write and imagine) 4. Insert the piece into your mouth. 5. Begin to chew it slowly, pass it through every corner of your mouth, let saliva moisten it. 6. Capture the acid point of the yeast and the aroma that exhales (passes through the choanae and goes to his nose) 7. Enjoy salty taste (breads and crackers carry salt) 8. Check the sweet taste (also carry sugar) 9. Now you will notice something very tasty, it is the glutamate that excites the umami receptors 10. Start swallowing with attention. You will see that there is another taste sensation when it passes through the veil of the palate. Have you done? How did it go? In fact, three things may have happened: A. You skipped all the above because you are looking for a quick fix to your problems. Believe me, you will still have exactly the same. B. You did the experiment, but your head was thinking “I had to put a washing machine, go to the bank, make food, put the kids to bed, wash the car ...” That's good! Now you know that it is not you who command, but your mind. Your mind, which should be an efficient secretary, has become the boss and your real self has stayed in a corner wanting to enjoy. In that case do the experiment again and force it to concentrate on eating. C. You did the experiment, your mind tried to go into the future, into the past and finally managed to concentrate on the piece of bread. Excellent! Now you know that there are two people living inside you. Be prepared to go further, start to be aware of yourself. If something else has happened that is not in these three, I beg you to tell me. There are as many variables as people ... I also leave a link on the consciousness in animals. It’s curious… BBC Consciousness Documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FLJnYSgozw
