I remember being very hungry, afterwards. It was difficult to distinguish between meditation and the lightheadedness that settles in, after such forced starvation. At one point, lying weakly on the floor, I thought I saw Shiva, dressed as a tuna fish sandwich. The mind plays odd tricks. He even had a side of chips, and a dill pickle spear. Freaky stuff - I wouldn't mess with it, except under close supervision.

Nothing - not even a peanut, or half cup of tap water - zip. You probably don't believe me, but its true. I think my years of TM helped, a lot. I must have been in a trance or something, to withstand it. I seriously thought I was going to pass out. Almost like Richard Harris, in that scene, from, "A Man Called Horse". Even so, I am working with a teacher, now, who says I can achieve *five hours*, of non-food, non-water - no problem. He's expensive, but worth it. I think he's Indian. Total cost is ~$1,000 (not including the non-food and non-water, of course). This is a tough crowd, here on FFL, so I'll say up front: This guy is no cult leader. After all, I've been around the block. Don't knock it, 'til you've tried it. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <email@example.com> wrote: Michelle Pfeiffer, the actress, has disclosed that she was once part of a “cult” which believed humans can exist without food or water. http://tinyurl.com/odb3y4c http://tinyurl.com/odb3y4c
