POISON IN THE GUISE OF SPICES
Spices add flavour, taste and appetite. Spices make life spicy.
Garlic and onions invite you from furlongs sending their stimulating aroma, especially when fried. A day without onions is a day of mourning for many. Such is the captivation of these nervous perks.
Every spicing makes you eat more and more. Without such spices we cannot eat 1 /3 the amount. What is happening to this extra food? It is making you excited physically, mentally and sexually. Your nadis (nerves) are put on a high state of tension and pleasure-just like what alcohol does to alcoholics.
No person who is on alcohol knows that he is excited and talking and doing things without awareness. He thinks that he is alright while others notice the mess he creates.
Eating spices has a similar effect-in a milder form spices enhance lust, anger, greed, covetousness etc… These, enhanced aggravations are accepted as normal human traits and everyone condones them. The entire work of social reformers is to set right the society ruined by such emotions which are set free by spices.
A drug addict lives for a very short period. An alcoholic lives a little longer. People eating spices, meat and cooked food lose a large portion of their longevity and much of the inner joy of life while living. Spices are the demons-calling you, enticing you, captivating you, making you their slaves and destroying your real silent happiness. Beware of spices. Overeating and then using ginger to quench the acidity is not the solution. Modem man wants to keep his gluttony and take medicines to overcome the uncomfortable results of his gluttony. Foolish ! But it is hardly recognised by the stimulated spice addict. His senses, perceptions and logics are all perverted.
Cancer, blood pressure, diabetes, ulcers, arthritis etc… are some of the diseases he enjoys as a result of gluttony, mainly caused by spices and cooked food.
Beware of all spices and nervous stimulants like chillies, onions, garlic, coffee, tea, cigarettes, etc… Everyone of them is poison in its own way.
When you eat natural food you will discover its natural taste and sweetness.
