Let your soul drink your food and chew your drink – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down.
Here is something to inspire you when you eat, read, feel, think or act: also as a soul you need to drink your food and chew your drink!
This old Indian saying is not only for food and drink, but also for your soul and mind.

The speed in modern society is increasing on so many places; sport performance, the speed of driving a car, how quick the news are updated, how quick your software is obsolete etc etc.

The attention span goes down. To make things quick people use calculators, speak to their computer instead of writing, look at YouTube instead of reading etc.

A tree that grows fast does not create strong wood. Knowledge that is superficial is not a part of you. Superficiality is not satisfying and we run on to experience new things hoping they will fulfill our needs and desires.

What we need to do is to slow down. To repeat things again and again just the same way kids do. Have you ever read a story to small kids night after the night the same one? Have you ever heard a kid say Can we do it again or just again, again?

Repetition is a secret worth millions. You can be good at anything almost if you invest 10 000 hours on it. Any master of any art or any profession has repeated and repeated what they do. Kids at school need to repeat and repeat.

What seems a challenge, what is difficult or full or resistance is dissolving with repetition in the same way as your food is dissolving so much that you can drink it if you chew enough.

When I have a challenging client, not as a person but challenging to perceive in a unified way, I read the case file again and again and again until the apparently unrelated information starts to come together into a unified picture.

If you are learning a new thing, do it slowly in the beginning, you can even imagine how you do it with closed eyes. High school students that were supposed to learn to hit the basketball target were divided into three groups. One was asked to relax and wait, one was asked to imagine the movement and hitting every time, the last was practising with balls. The group imagining did best and the group relaxing did worst.

Chewing slowly and again and again is the key to solving many challenges.

Also chewing liquids or not letting the easy stuff just pas through, but giving it an extra chew is a good trick to deeper understanding and mastering. What seems obvious, what you think you know or understand might give you a deeper depth or perception if you give it an extra chew.

Asking and asking again, is it like that, what if it is different, what is my presumptions. Can I give myself the freedom to question everything I believe is true or take it for granted?

Digestion is not only a question of the body it is as much a question of the soul and its growth; drink your food and chew your drink!

About author

This article was written by Andreas Bjørndal

Even if my work is in different fields and expressions there is a common core theme to most of my activities. I love to be an active part of growing awareness, insight, inspiration and spreading a unifying knowledge. I care for stimulating health and development, creating improved harmony and unity within the individual as in their relation with the group. Lecturing, writing articles, debating, teaching around the world has been a big part of my life. To day I also communicate through my blog holonity.com The way we humans communicate “meaning” is so different and still so similar. The study of the old cultures, their medicine and understanding of life compared with the modern scientific approach has lead me to a unified understanding across seemingly unconnected areas of knowledge. Since 2008 I have explored new ways of knowledge; holonistic knowledge, which I share in my blog: holonity.com I have lectured about a unified approach to complementary medicine, principles of healing, typology, the cosmology of the old cultures, Egyptology, kabbalah and much more. I love to work with people, in group-dynamics to be part of an evolving dynamic process and surrender to a higher intention. I counsel and supervise individuals, partners, couples and families to find the core theme in their lives and how they can resolve and master that. We all have a core theme in our lives and all challenges we encounter is trying to tell us what it is, help is master it and become a better version of ourselves.
