I will start this article, by presenting the research on the Internet about the causes of Obesity. I will then include Desteni perspective on obesity and from there discuss how an Equal Money system will affect Obesity. I will place the internet perspectives in italics.
What Causes Overweight and Obesity?
Lack of Energy Balance
A lack of energy balance most often causes overweight and obesity. Energy balance means that your energy IN equals your energy OUT.
Energy IN is the amount of energy or calories you get from food and drinks. Energy OUT is the amount of energy your body uses for things like breathing, digesting, and being physically active.
To maintain a healthy weight, your energy IN and OUT don’t have to balance exactly every day. It’s the balance over time that helps you maintain a healthy weight.
• The same amount of energy IN and energy OUT over time = weight stays the same
• More energy IN than energy OUT over time = weight gain
• More energy OUT than energy IN over time = weight loss
Overweight and obesity happen over time when you take in more calories than you use.
An Inactive Lifestyle
Many Americans aren’t very physically active. One reason for this is that many people spend hours in front of TVs and computers doing work, schoolwork, and leisure activities. In fact, more than 2 hours a day of regular TV viewing time has been linked to overweight and obesity.
Other reasons for not being active include: relying on cars instead of walking, fewer physical demands at work or at home because of modern technology and conveniences, and lack of physical education classes in schools for children.
People who are inactive are more likely to gain weight because they don’t burn up the calories that they take in from food and drinks. An inactive lifestyle also raises your risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, colon cancer, and other health problems.
Our environment doesn’t support healthy lifestyle habits; in fact, it encourages obesity. Some reasons include:
• Lack of neighborhood sidewalks and safe places for recreation. Not having area parks, trails, sidewalks, and affordable gyms makes it hard for people to be physically active.
• Work schedules. People often say that they don’t have time to be physically active because of long work hours and time spent commuting.
• Oversized food portions. Americans are surrounded by huge food portions in restaurants, fast food places, gas stations, movie theaters, supermarkets, and even home. Some of these meals and snacks can feed two or more people. Eating large portions means too much energy IN. Over time, this will cause weight gain if it isn’t balanced with physical activity.
• Lack of access to healthy foods. Some people don’t live in neighborhoods that have supermarkets that sell healthy foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Or, for some people, these healthy foods are too costly.
• Food advertising. Americans are surrounded by ads from food companies. Often children are the targets of advertising for high-calorie, high-fat snacks and sugary drinks. The goal of these ads is to sway people to buy these high-calorie foods, and often they do.
Genes and Family History
Studies of identical twins who have been raised apart show that genes have a strong influence on a person’s weight. Overweight and obesity tend to run in families. Your chances of being overweight are greater if one or both of your parents are overweight or obese.
Your genes also may affect the amount of fat you store in your body and where on your body you carry the extra fat. Because families also share food and physical activity habits, a link exists between genes and the environment.
Children adopt the habits of their parents. A child who has overweight parents who eat high-calorie foods and are inactive will likely become overweight too. However, if the family adopts healthy food and physical activity habits, the child’s chance of being overweight or obese is reduced.
Some hormone problems may cause overweight and obesity, such as underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), Cushing’s syndrome, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Underactive thyroid is a condition in which the thyroid gland doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone. Lack of thyroid hormone will slow down your metabolism and cause weight gain. You’ll also feel tired and weak.
Cushing’s syndrome is a condition in which the body’s adrenal glands make too much of the hormone cortisol. Cushing’s syndrome also can develop if a person takes high doses of certain medicines, such as prednisone, for long periods.
People who have Cushing’s syndrome gain weight, have upper-body obesity, a rounded face, fat around the neck, and thin arms and legs.
PCOS is a condition that affects about 5–10 percent of women of childbearing age. Women who have PCOS often are obese, have excess hair growth, and have reproductive problems and other health issues due to high levels of hormones called androgens.
Certain medicines may cause you to gain weight. These medicines include some corticosteroids, antidepressants, and seizure medicines.
These medicines can slow the rate at which your body burns calories, increase your appetite, or cause your body to hold on to extra water. All of these factors can lead to weight gain.
Some people eat more than usual when they’re bored, angry, or stressed. Over time, overeating will lead to weight gain and may cause overweight or obesity.
Some people gain weight when they stop smoking. One reason is that food often tastes and smells better after quitting smoking.
Another reason is because nicotine raises the rate at which your body burns calories, so you burn fewer calories when you stop smoking. However, smoking is a serious health risk, and quitting is more important than possible weight gain.
As you get older, you tend to lose muscle, especially if you’re less active. Muscle loss can slow down the rate at which your body burns calories. If you don’t reduce your calorie intake as you get older, you may gain weight.
Midlife weight gain in women is mainly due to aging and lifestyle, but menopause also plays a role. Many women gain around 5 pounds during menopause and have more fat around the waist than they did before.
During pregnancy, women gain weight so that their babies get proper nourishment and develop normally. After giving birth, some women find it hard to lose the weight. This may lead to overweight or obesity, especially after a few pregnancies.
Lack of Sleep
Studies find that the less people sleep, the more likely they are to be overweight or obese. People who report sleeping 5 hours a night, for example, are much more likely to become obese compared with people who sleep 7–8 hours a night.
People who sleep fewer hours also seem to prefer eating foods that are higher in calories and carbohydrates, which can lead to overeating, weight gain, and obesity over time.
Hormones that are released during sleep control appetite and the body’s use of energy. For example, insulin controls the rise and fall of blood sugar levels during sleep. People who don’t get enough sleep have insulin and blood sugar levels that are similar to those in people who are likely to have diabetes.
Also, people who don’t get enough sleep regularly seem to have high levels of a hormone called ghrelin (which causes hunger) and low levels of a hormone called leptin (which normally helps curb hunger).
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CAUSES OF OBESITY THE OBESE (OR OVERFAT) PERSON
Practically, too little or too much food will result in a change in weight. This input-output formula is HOW a person gets thin or fat. The overweight person eats too much food and does too little exercise. (See identifying the obese or overfat person). The commercial and fitness industry has made a fortune out of people with a weight problem. If you, or someone you know, has a weight problem, please remember that the excess weight is a manifestation of deeper problems which are caused by psychological and/or historical factors. Psychological “causes”, refer to an individual’s personal dynamics which contribute to how s/he uses food. Historical causes refer to practical events in a person’s life, such as the loss of a parent, the birth of a sibling, changes in schools, sexual abuse, etc.
The overweight person has:
1. Learnt how to use food as a means of coping with psychological and practical problems.
2. Eats whenever they are emotionally upset.
3. Has a range of psychological problems.
4. Therapy is not always effective.
If you wish to understand how the psyche sets up a coping mechanism such as overeating, please click here before or after you have read the following.
The following general psychodynamic causes apply to all eating disorders.
THE GENERAL PSYCHODYNAMIC CAUSES AND/OR EFFECTS OF EATING DISORDERS
1. A lack of coping skills: This means that there is an inability to manage life in a practical way. Often there is an inability or lack of skill to deal with an emotion, to process it, to work with it and to cope with it. Individuals with eating disorders only know how to deal with their problems through food and exercise. Most of us lack coping skills for at least some areas in our lives. I have indicated that they are stuck at a very primitive way of dealing with the world. We could call them orally fixated (Freud’s theory). That is, they are stuck at an oral point of coping with the world. This means that everything in terms of how they cope with the world is done around the mouth. Besides eating, other oral fixations include smoking and drinking. The other important concept that goes with this phase is “instant gratification”. This is the sense of time urgency of wanting everything now! There is an inability to wait. My clinical experience with this group of individuals confirms this concept.
2. They fail to recognize and respond adequately before it is too late because they do not have the appropriate skills. For example, in a stressful situation, the obese person reaches for and eats the doughnut before she even thinks about any other options. This brings us to the next point.
3. They cannot stop and think because the appropriate skill is often inhibited by fear, anxiety or deeper issues. Any emotion can prevent an individual from actually using a practical skill to deal with the situation. Emotions are trigger factors which can either get in the way or they can signal that an action is required. Let us look at the inverted U hypothesis.
Up to point X you have a positive experience and you are able to take action. Thereafter there is a decrease in your ability to take action. For example, if a student is studying for an exam, enough anxiety will motivate him/her to study but too much anxiety will prevent this. Any stress, emotion, experience, etc, can be a beneficial experience. However, too much of anything can overload your ability to cope. People stuck in the oral phase have a very low tolerance level which they deal with through instant gratification. Compare to the curve above, theirs would look like this. (Note the smaller curve indicating the lower tolerance level).
We all vary in terms of how our own curve would look and this can affect how well we function. Try and think about what your curve would look like for say anxiety, anger, pain, frustration, etc.
4. Poor self-esteem: The entire sense of self is invested in how the individual looks and how much she weighs. She cannot give herself credit if she has lost a kilogram of weight because she is still 15 kgs overweight. Her mood will depend on how she looks or feels that day. A slight increase or decrease in weight as reflected on a scale, can change her whole outlook despite how she may have felt just prior to weighing. These are all manifestations of a poor self-esteem.
5. They lack confidence but this is often body specific. These individuals can be quite high functioning in other areas of their lives but they are not confident about their bodies. They feel particularly threatened in situations which require that they look physically good e.g. going out to a function.
6. There is a poor body image and the body mage itself is often distorted. A distorted body image is a very specific phenomenon. It means that you look in the mirror and when you weigh 45kgs you believe that you weigh 65kgs. It is a distortion, not a slight maladjustment. When these individuals look in the mirror they do not see the reality. The fat person seldom realizes how big s/he is, while the anorexic always thinks she is overweight.
7. There is an obsession with weight/food and the approach to this is often extreme or all-or-nothing. They constantly think about food. Being obsessive as well as being all-or-nothing are both defense mechanisms. All-or-nothing behaviour can be assessed by the “diet mind-set”. E.g. “I am either on diet or off diet”, “I will be 100% compliant when I’m on the diet, but will eat as much as possible when I am not on diet”. This all-or-nothing thinking is also applied to other areas of the person’s life.
The negative effects of dieting and the media play a prevalent role in poor self-esteem, the lack of confidence, a poor and/or distored body image, as well as obsessions with food. On is constantly bombarded with new fad diets or emaciated looking models. The average woman tries to model herself on this and loses touch with how she wants to look and what is realistic for her size and shape.
8. They feel isolated. There is a lack of understanding from friends, family and society. They are quite often rejected by spouse, family, friends and society, which results in feelings of loneliness and isolation. Even some professionals do not understand the phenomenon. There are ardent attempts to change the symptom and a tendency to ignore the deeper dynamics. There is often employment discrimination and they are labelled as lazy, sloppy, out of control, self-destructive. Unfortunately, these indiviudals also tend to internalize these labels and then live up to the label.
9. Emotions. This is a bit of a chicken and an egg situation. Is the emotion that is being expressed a result of the problem, or the cause of the problem? What comes first, the cause or the effect? Was this person anxious, frustrated, bored, etc before they started having an eating disorder or has the emotion been exacerbated by the eating disorder?
All emotions may contribute to, or be the result of the eating disoder. Depression, anger, boredom, emptiness, loneliness, feeling devalued, helpless, inadequate, stressed, frightened etc. These emotions need to be controlled and because the person with an eating disorder does not have the coping skills (point 1) s/he resorts to the eating disorder pattern. Emotions that are not dealt with are shut off, but do not go away. They come back when you least want them or expect them to. Food or purging or exercise is merely a comforter which restores the equilibrium. Food is also a tool for expressing emotions or feelings as a reward or punishment. For people with an eating disorder, food does not equal food. Food is not eaten for sustenance. Food is a comforter, a friend or a dummy. In summary, their relationship with food is quite abnormal.
10. There is denial of and poor communication with regards to feelings and needs. Poor communication often causes other problems in relationships and issues are not dealt with as they happen.
11. There is an inability to trust in themselves, their needs, their wants, their feelings and in others.
12. Boundaries. They cannot say no to themselves or to anyone else.
13. There is an inability to make choices. The ability to make choices is something we learn from a young age. Someone who is functioning at a very primitive level (point 1), cannot make choices in general, let alone about food.
14. Personality Disorder: It is enevitable that some people will have found different ways of coping with their personal issues, even to the point of developing a personality disorder. Personality disorders are difficult to treat as they become fixed, ingrained patterns of coping. The assessment of a personality disorder can only be made by a psychologist or a psychiatrist.
The Design of Obesity
2 October 2007
Hi. This is the Obesity System Demon—System Design—excuse me. (System demons are the more ‘compacted’ manifestations in the individual human beings, whereas the Obesity System Design—as myself—is of the entirety of this existence.)
So, why does obesity exist? Again, a balancing act, a balancing equation within this existence.
Obese human beings can’t help themselves; they can’t help their thoughts, they can’t help their eating habits. Though, if they have a really, extensively strong will, they are able to break through their part of and in this balancing act and equation within this existence. What do I mean with that? ‘Obese human beings’ has got actually nothing to do with the food they eat, or even the amount they eat (that plays a part, yes, but not all of it).
The reason obesity exists is because of the following:
Now, with the mind consciousness systems developing within human beings, the mind consciousness systems—interdimensionally—literally feed off the human physical body nutrients to exist interdimensionally. Now, what do I mean by ‘it feeds off the nutrients’? [laughs] Have a look. (Human beings, you know, it’s necessary to open your eyes to this world that you’re existing in, because nothing is what it seems.) So, interdimensionally, your human physical body is of life, is of this Earth, is the expression of life that is of the Earth, within and as oneness and equality. Now, the mind consciousness system placements within and as your human physical body interdimensionally, literally feeds off of the life essence—the life force essence within your human physical body—to sustain its existence and, as it feeds off that life force essence of that which the human physical body consists of, interdimensionally, it manifests as the nutrients and sustenance of your human physical body in this reality; and thus, through a period of “time” (time-space continuum in this reality), mind consciousness system upgrades have been extensive, extreme, where the mind consciousness system manifestations within human beings have gotten so extensive that human beings’ life force essence started depleting at such a rate that human beings have become a complete, full-fledged mind consciousness system at the age of about eighteen years old (instead of twenty-eight years old) – even to the extent where babies were born with complete, full mind consciousness systems already intact within and as them, no chance of actually experiencing themselves as who they really are as the expression of life, of oneness and equality with their human physical body.
So, what happened is the mind consciousness system placements within human beings required extra sustenance and nutrients from human physical bodies. Because of the extensive amount of the infusion and the manifestation and the integration of the mind consciousness system, human beings’ physical bodies literally started depleting, very quickly. In other words, the extraction of the nutrients from the human physical body by the mind consciousness system. Now, the nutrients is as the life force essence within and as you as your human physical body. Human beings started dying quicker, and started becoming older much faster, and the mind consciousness system couldn’t stay “functioning” within the human physical body.
So, obesity—and the existence of obesity—is for the following reason: Human beings that are obese, actually, an extensive amount of fatty acids, which are—and actually very much other specific nutrients—within and as their human physical body, which come in vast amounts. So, in other words, they were another manifestation of a power source and power charge for all the other human beings within this world. In other words, their unconscious mind (of their entire mind consciousness system) was designed in such a way to transfer life force essence nutrients—from their human physical body—to the rest of humanity, so that the mind consciousness systems within human beings could continue participating and be “alive” in and of this world, so that human beings can continue with their—the rest of humanity—can continue with their lives “normally” (as mind consciousness systems) because the mind consciousness systems are fed the necessary nutrients through the unconscious mind of the human beings who are obese.
So, therefore, weight, et cetera, has got nothing to do with food, nothing. Especially not obesity. Really. It’s just that, when they eat, what happens with their mind consciousness system is that their systems are set up in such a way that, if they eat the food, the food is multiplied and quantified three times within their human physical body; and that’s why they become obese. So, in other words, their system has been quantified to three times more extensive in the amount of food they actually eat. In other words—let’s say they eat a hamburger and fries and a cold drink—what happens is that amount of food they eat, within their human physical body, quantifies to four times the amount. In other words, actually they ate four hamburgers, four fries, and four cold…three cold drinks…sorry, THREE times, quantified THREE times in their human physical body. They actually had three hamburgers, three fries, and three cold drinks. That happens EVERY TIME they eat; and as their systems quantify, their mind consciousness system—with their specialized unconscious mind—then extracts the necessary nutrients as the life force essence within them, extracts the necessary nutrients and then sends it (through the unconscious mind) to the rest of humanity so that the mind consciousness system is able to have the necessary nutrients to be able to exist within and as human beings.
So, human beings, the solution to this situation would just be to stop your mind—stop the mind through forgiveness, self-honesty in every moment—because this must stop (it’s really, really unnecessary); and to those human beings who are obese in the world, we have sorted the situation out. Now, all you have to do is also just stop your mind, and don’t believe that it’s actually the food that is causing your obesity. It’s actually the mind consciousness system within you; nothing else. Food is harmless.
Article taken from the Desteni Forum Archives
Now that I have quoted the research done by various sources on the internet, including that of Desteni – I will place the following perspective:
Will obesity still exist in an Equal Money System?
By using the various factors that cause obesity mentioned by the internet research groups – I will take each ‘cause’ of obesity and show how the factor itself will change in and because of the changes that occur within people, once we are in an Equal Money System.
Let look at the first point:
1. Lack of Energy Balance
What has happened in our society today, is that we have become addicted to consuming – either in the form of the perceived energy we get from being around our friends, partners or family or through consuming goods such as food, entertainment, products. Every time one experiences an energetic jolt within oneself that drives one to buy or do things, which you don’t really require, it is always based on fulfilling a energetic void within oneself. That is why the media are able t to impulse people to buy things not because of practicality but simply because of the desire within each to have a specific feeling, to quench a thirst in one’s life. Through ‘experiences’ we think and believe we can enjoy ourselves, and through the generations we have trained our children to rely on the outer world to fulfill a gap inside self, which should be fulfilled simply by ‘Self’ accepting oneself as ‘I am here’. The people who design products understand the psychology/thinking of man, therefore corporations make use of ‘human psychology’ to design products and use media and advertising to sell the product by playing on people’s needs, desires and pre-programming. Pre-programming is a vast subject, for now I will mention that pre-programming is each persons design within consciousness as various systems dependent on energy, generated through the action of thinking, feelings, emotions, fear, reactions. This is the make up of consciousness as it exist currently as the human – it is not a pretty picture – and the problem is that humans have come to accept ‘human nature’ as ‘normal’ not realizing how we are directed as the mind, and how corporations and those with money use our own ‘weaknesses’ as our ‘design’ to direct us every day into participating in the current system. If we did not exist in the mind, dependent on the mind as energy – then corporations would not be able to direct us through how the mind works. Currently we believe we are the mind and every experience we have as who we are as our ‘personality designs’ must be valid – because hey ‘it is who I am!’. What is not taken into consideration is how the mind as the system works, how it acts on our behalf to keep the human as a system functioning.
Therefore food as with any other action done from the starting point of overindulgence is done from the staring point of filling oneself to the brim through ‘experiences’. In an Equal Money System, we will change how we live as humanity. Our values will change from what I have described above – because our values currently have been designed through the principles of the capitalist system. Nothing that we do currently is based on ‘what is best for all’, but instead is designed around impulsing the human to participate in the money system, which is based on greed of those who direct the capitalist system. So lets look at obesity for example:
In an Equal Money System we will no longer impulse people to buy – so from that side you will not have people being directed through ‘feelings’ and ‘experiences’ to buy things. Secondly because our value systems change people will start becoming aware themselves and will seek assistance through experiences which before they either did not know about, or the issues were not advertised because the problem itself as the human psyche supports the capitalists system or because the person could not afford assistance.
Let us look at the experience of ‘filling the gap’ – which is the predominate reason why people overindulgence and consume more than what they require. Again in an Equal Money System we will all be able to experience everything equally. All resources will be equally available for all people to express ourselves within, therefore you will no longer have the generational problems we have now which was caused through the gap between rich and poor resulting in people becoming ‘bored’ within their lives – and desiring new, fresh experiences. Such experiences are then replaced by sex, food, drugs etc. In an Equal Money system boredom will not exist as the failure to be able to study and pursue a certain career/life experience. Therefore the total human experience will change from what is it now, where each are trapped by their socio-economic status to a life where we explore all facets of our world and human abilities.
2. An Inactive Lifestyle
This was covered in the previous point.
In an Equal Money System corruption, theft and fraud will no longer be possible or necessary – therefore people will be able to go where they need to go to get exercise and money will no longer be the reason why people are not able to go for exercise or to a health care professional. Work schedules will change as we will no longer work long hours or overtime, as that exists in the current system simply so that corporations can make more money. Therefore people will have sufficient time to exercise/do activities/enjoy themselves. Food advertisements will obviously also change from encouraging overindulgence to common-sensical eating – because the food industry will no longer be about greed – but about supporting the physical body.
Firstly in a Equal Money System, we will actually fund the proper research necessary to find out what methods or medication is required to effectively support the person. The deception that exists today is that the medical industry profits off sick people – therefore – the scientists are not being paid to find solutions for illness – they are being paid to keep people sick within an ever lasting cycle. Medication costs a lot of money and only alleviates some symptoms. In an Equal Money system because our values change to that of supporting life, we will develop and maintain support modalities like the Desteni I Process that works with the person to bring them to the core of their illness by understanding what the illness represents about the persons pre-programming and total design. Therefore to stop illness, we go to the core and work from the inside out. If an illness has become a genetic trait, then again we work through the layers of information that has become the water of the person, to self purify ourselves, so that what was in the past is cleared so that we do not have to live out the future, paying for ‘the sins of the fathers’.
5. Genes and Family History
Everything that has been written above, applies here as well. Whatever ‘trait’ gets passed down through the generations is simply our dishonesty we have come to accept as ourselves as ‘human nature’. Human nature is based currently on surviving in this world, therefore nobody actually lives, but simply adapts as our personalities to survive in the current world systems. The current world systems are designed around Money. So while people believe they are living ‘quality lives’ – they are actually justifying the capitalist system, in which you can buy your comfort and your survival. If you cannot buy it like a majority of families in the world, then sorry for you. And in this case ‘sorry for you’ will usually be followed by ‘it is karma’ or ‘god made you this way’.
So – hand in hand with an Equal Money System – which is the foundation system which allows all an equal opportunity at a dignified life, as your birth right on this planet – together with it as I mentioned above – goes the changing of ourselves as the nature of humanity we have come to accept. Now we accept struggle, comparison, survival, self-interest, greed. In an Equal Money System – when people are taken our of the need to survive and the need to compete -because you have all your basic needs taken care of and all resources are yours to utilize equally within self responsibility. Together here we have a new way of living, a self purification of the human from what we accept to be human nature now – to living what is best for all, as yourself – equal to everyone else. This equality based living includes, working through any ‘issues’ one might have which means that you are not able to live a fully functional, effective life. So in the current system, we have come to accept that as part of this ‘life’, people get stuck in survival, fear, pain, depression, anger, comparison, etc. In an equality based system – while the Equal Money System provides you will your living requirements, you have an equal opportunity to address all your ‘problems’ – which you are being burdened with, within the current world system. The Desteni I Process, is such a modality, where one walks through your entire life design, to delve into the patterns of self acceptance we have become that do not serve us. The Desteni I Process for example is a structured modality/course which covers the layers of the mind, through which we are able to go into the patterns we exist as, find their cause, find out why we use these patterns, and let go of the pattern through specific tools and the key application of self forgiveness, self honesty and self responsibility. In an Equal Money System, these courses and all other modalities that assist in self support, will be available to all – because again – they key emphasis here is that in an Equal Money System – it is about restoring the human to our fullest potential, whereas in the current system if we were to restore the human to our fullest potential the capitalistic system would not be able to survive.
If we clear ourselves as the layers of family history that we have manifested as, within our total design – then we are ensuring that the future generations do not have to live out ‘the sins of the fathers’ – as we are currently experiencing. All assistance will be made available for people to be able to support themselves to an actual solution – not to merely keep going in circles.
In an Equal Money System, the main focus as I mentioned above will be on self-purification. This means that a person will walk through available self assistance modalities and together with that utilize other therapies or methods which assist effectively (in an equal money system most current therapies/services will be applicable according to what support the physical requires). With regards to smoking – this falls under the same banner as ‘self support’ if it is used as a means of aligning oneself back here effectively into and as a fully functional being. Therefore while walking through programs/courses that assist in peeling the layers of your self design – if one finds smoking to assist, then that could be valid. If however just like anything else, it becomes a life line that you are not able to eventually let go of where it replaces self honesty and self correction – then again – this would form part of the evaluation process one would walk through, where one consider all your patterns and through that find out – is this supporting me or am I using this to not have to apply self forgiveness and let go of my addictions? Therefore in the case of smoking causing weight gain because nicotine raises the rate at which your body burns calories, one would look at how to move yourself physically and improve your breathing to align the physical so that it supports itself effectively with regards to food assimilation – instead of relying on an outside source. Again because there would be no restriction on what resources you would be able to utilize, people will not have the excuse of not being able to physically apply themselves due to time or money restrictions. All aspects will be noted down as part of your self assistance – and if any ‘problems’ come up, one can assess it in self honesty, without denying anything, based on money.
7. Emotional Factors
Again this point of boredom, suppression, denial, anxiety etc that could be the cause of overeating – was covered above. Again if money is not the issues then who will become bored? Currently people place themselves in life and work situations where they are not happy, but they have to be there because of money. Take Money out of the equation – and what different life decisions would you make, when you are not dependent on another and have access to equal opportunities to everyone else?
Here again one can address factors like menopause etc, by effective research into the human design. If research is no longer about money, then, we can get on with effective research into the human design, such as how consciousness really functions and what the body really requires. From there we can focus on effective solutions for health care problems we have come to accept as ‘normal’. Also refer to the article above taken from the Desteni Forum archives called: ‘The Design of Obesity’. You will see that the research points towards the survival of the human which over time evolved the mind consciousness system to adapt the physical to be able to support the mind of the individual, which has to function in the current system. Change the system and how it requires of each to survive and not live, and there you will find the key in redesigning the human so that we no longer exists as reservoirs for the mind, but instead the physical becomes fully functional as life as you.
Weight gain during and after pregnancy has also been designed within the mind consciousness system to prepare the baby to become a fully functional system. Again please refer if you have not to the article called ‘The Design of Obesity’ to get a clearer understanding of how the mind adapts the physical body to become an energy resource for the mind. Therefore taking into consideration what has been mentioned previously, change how we live and why we live, as the values of what it means to be human, and many ‘health issues’ that are currently accepted like ‘excessive weight gain in the mother’ will be effectively addressed and will change because of who the mother has become as life. This will affect her total design as she will support herself and the child – not to design a complete system that runs off energy to survive. Again proper research into how to assist the mother during and after birth, will allow mothers to support themselves through the necessary means, which will not be hampered by ‘lack of money/lack of time’. The mother will also be able to have assistance from others which in the current system is only possible if you have money or family that are available. In an Equal Money System mothers and pregnancy will be something we will support effectively because we value life and therefore value the mother’s body and that of the new born child – whom we want to come into this world with the best chances at living a full life.
10. Lack of Sleep
Again here one would ask the question -why does the person not sleep well? What is the core issue that requires to be addressed? Mostly we find that people have difficulty sleeping because they experience anxiety over money and survival. Therefore in an Equal Money System anxiety over survival will not exist and if a person finds themselves anxious over any particular point – they will have the tools such what is presented in the Desteni I Process to see the pattern and stop the pattern through writing, self honesty, self forgiveness and self responsibility. Hormones are chemical messenger within the body that transports a signal from one cell to another. The function of the hormone is therefore to transports a signal which then instruct changes within the body. So again – of one says ‘I have a hormone imbalance’ – one would look into why over time this message has become more prevalent and has thus created a ‘imbalance within the hormones.’ Through the generations – the physical adapts itself to those who have gone before us, according to their personality designs and how they programmed themselves to survive in the world. Therefore ‘genetic hormonal imbalances’ are yet again showing us that we inherit from our parents that which they programmed themselves as. In these designs you can see how the person lived, according to what they believed, feared, thoughts, their emotions, feelings, likes, dislikes, All of this eventually becomes your water and gets programmed into your physical – as ‘who you are’. Then you have a child and into the child gets programmed a combination of the traits from mother and father, which also consist of traits combined from their mothers and fathers and those who went before them. So somewhere in your family lineage, an imbalance was created for example in certain hormones because of what those hormones functioned according to. In an Equal Money System, we wont just ‘treat the hormones’ as a form of suppressing the core design of the being, but instead we will look at why the person’s body functions the way it does.
I suggest take a look through the section called:
THE GENERAL PSYCHODYNAMIC CAUSES AND/OR EFFECTS OF EATING DISORDERS
Again what does one notice here – survival. In most cases we are looking at financial concerns as well as the persons believe structure about themselves. What we have focused on in the Desteni I Process for example is to stop all self definitions as they separate us from who we are as a physical body into a projected image we hold in our minds, which comes from what others have taught us, we should be. Therefore, self-image for example comes from growing up and being subjected to the image others tell you is acceptable. Then one starts believing this is normal because everyone is society is subjecting themselves to an idea of whom we are based on pictures and pleasuring each other. This in turn causes people to develop ‘self esteem issues.’ In an Equal Money system Money does not direct people’s decisions because there will be no corporations impulsing you to believe the lie which is that you must be a certain someone to be ‘acceptable.’ That ‘certain someone’ is a personality and picture design manifested from layers and layers of lies designed by the capitalistic drive. Therefore to make money people have to sell ideas. The greatest lie that has ever been developed has been the idea that we are dependent on becoming something more than what we are here as the physical body. This is how capitalism functions. Have you noticed how many billions of ads there are for useless products trying to tell you that you are needing their product to make yourself better? This is all based on the deception we have come to accept about ourselves. Again in an Equal Money System, as I previously mentioned, we will change our values, because we will realize that what we value now as beauty and sex, is in fact harming us to the extent where millions of people, animals and nature of being abused. We abuse not only animals and the environment, but each other in the name of beauty/ugly. Such frivolous ideas, that cause much suffering. We teach our children from young that it is acceptable to want to fit into a certain image of yourself. Again this is based on Money. Woman allow themselves to fit a suitable image, so that they will find a good mate that will provide for them. In this is also the subliminal factor of finding a suitable mate that will ensure a strong offspring – again here we are looking at survival of the human. Survival of the human has become about who is the best, instead of living here equally within the physical reality. Being the best is again an idea that is sold to people through the media, and is the driving force of the capitalist system for you to wake up in the morning and go earn money – so that you can be better than the next person. Unfortunately people do not see how they are allowing themselves to be sold a lie about who and what we are. We see it as harmless and almost ‘fun’ if you have the money to participate in the rat race of humanity. It is not fun for those who suffer within the capitalist system due to the greed that is cultivated from what we as humanity accept. Each time, we give permission to a new trend – then we are giving permission to the corporations to lie and cheat to your face to sell you the product. In that they will use all human ‘weaknesses’ to impulse you to buy things – so that on a subconscious and unconscious level – we will feel complete.
More on the Desteni I Process:
In the psychology of the design of personality, the human will make a life decision of personality trait in less than a minute between the ages of 8 and 18, such a trait will then be a lifelong pattern of self-sabotage. In the Desteni I Process we capture this/such moment(s) in detail to assist with self-correction and life change, as we work with personal history in self-honesty to understand the relationship dynamics and accepted patterns that have come to define our life/experience. Self-creation as life entails transcending the definitions we wear in this world as if it were make-up; letting go of fake values and delusions of grandeur and seeing the actual truth of ourselves and this world.
The value of life is life. Who are we as life? Can we value ourselves and each-other as life? Can we let go of the mental boundaries and move beyond the limitations of the world consciousness that makes us believe we can only survive through war, separation, secrecy, abuse… Can we stop our fear of ourselves and each-other and self-realize life? Who will we/will each one be?
The daily self Task to place yourself in writing in a structured way will in time be your proven sanity, trust , honesty and consistency that transcend all ego. All the structure must show is your dedication to what is best for all life and the confirmation through cross-referenced feedback that you are in fact living this commitment breath by breath into being as you as life. This will support you effectively when you get to the point of no return called death and you are measured to see if you are in fact life and worthy to be recognized as life. At Desteni our interest is life and the living. Join us in this journey of creating the way to life to stand the test of time. Desteni I Process is available to all regardless of affordability.
