So you can also be starving for vitality, which is just the life force energy that comes from being out in nature, and it also comes from live foods because if you think about it – maybe 100 years ago, 200 years ago or even 1,000 years ago we were always outdoors. We were getting sunlight, we were getting fresh air, clean water, we were getting live foods, and all this stuff had life force from the sun. That’s the life. If you think about it, there’s no life without the sun, right? And that sunlight gets captured in plants. The chlorophyll actually captures sunlight and turns it into nutrients, and that sunlight is there in live foods and our bodies crave that sunlight. The problem is we can’t measure that, and because we can’t measure it we think it doesn’t exist. But, for a long time we couldn’t measure radio waves or x-rays but they existed. Lots of things exist that we can’t measure, but you know that if your body is used to, for thousands of years we’ve been having food with vitality and being out in nature, and now we’re not. Everything is dead and pre-packaged and we’re in cubicles indoors all the time. Your body is starving for this essential nutrient, and just this week I was in Sydney to do a talk and I spent three days in a hotel room in Sydney and I noticed that I was hungry all the time, which is not what I’m used to. And I’d have sushi, I’d have this, and two hours later I’d be thinking about another meal. My body was looking for something that it wasn’t getting. So what happened was just two days ago I woke up, I had my breakfast at the hotel, I couldn’t wait to have breakfast because I’m hunger, I had this big breakfast, and then I say I’ve got to get out of the city and I go off to this island that’s an hour out of Sydney and that’s where I started staying. It’s got no roads, it’s right on the water, I’m not hungry the rest of the day. I had an apple or two in the afternoon; I just wasn’t hungry. I went to sleep without dinner, it’s like my body totally changed. It’s like okay I’m getting what I need. And so I know from firsthand experience that you’ve got to place emphasis on the fact that life force vitality is something your body needs and where are you getting it. So that’s something you need to ask yourself every day. Are you getting it in the foods? Is there any life force in the food you’re eating? Are you spending any time outdoors? Are you seeing the sun? Are you seeing water? Are you seeing nature? Where are you getting your life force vitality? That’s something you need to ask yourself every day.
