To fast is to slow down and be self-aware

Such a nice play of words: to fast means to slow down. Pay attention. Be more self-aware.

Are the sensations we feel really hunger, or is it just thirst?

Is the craving a need or a want?

Is it nourishment or indulgence?

Maybe fasting reminds us that to flourish means to pause, reflect, and be more self-aware. There are times when stopping is faster than an illusion of movement if the goal is integral human development.
