To you it may concern: I would like to share how I stay on target with my diet and eating the right foods to maintain my health. I know that I have two selves—the Moors refer to them as the higher self and the lower self. The higher self is the spirit seed of God, which lives within your soul inside your brain. The lower self, which is the body of desires influenced by your senses such as: sight, hearing, feeling, taste, and smell. Through these senses the body is able to determine what it cares for itself. You have to become acquainted with yourself. Think about your thought—before acting on it. Analyze your thought to see whether it is harmful or helpful to your health.
Plan to bring what you desire to eat when you are visiting someone. Be warned that they are likely not to have the type of food that you are dieting on or have the temperament to fix something just for you.
So, listening when I go to my Moorish meeting I bring my snack on Fridays such as: granola, mixed nuts, dates, raisins, sliced apples, and apple cider vinegar with water to keep my blood pressure down. At Moorish Sunday school class our host and friends usually fix eggs, grits, waffles, toast, and sausage for everyone. My appetite for this is good, but I know that the salt content in sausages will raise my blood pressure (which I know I will want to eat). Thus, I bring my own meal. Now, my wonderful host is happy in that everyone (including dieters) is fed and full.
Good News: God is great. By listening to the still small voice in my soul and controlling my body wants, and the help of my doctor, my heart is much better and my next appointment will be six months from now.
