Don't Be a Prisoner of Your Unconscious Thoughts

For the past two days, I've been having a stomach upset. I've suffered from stomach problems for a long time. I've started to cook again. The last time when I cooked was when I was in the U.S. In Asia, I've been eating out or in the Ashrams. Because I do a lot of Yoga, I feed my body with a lot of protein. Well, I think I fed my body with too many chickpeas and beans. I couldn't tell the appropriate portion to put into the pressure cooker. As I progress in my yoga practices, my food intake is decreasing where I can go some days with almost no food and be full energetic (note that this is not a fasting day for me). I'm just beginning to acknowledge this new change in my system. My goal is to eat only once a day. 

I took the opportunity to meditate and boy today the mind kept telling me different options and I just stood there watching all of the thoughts that rose. From going to a restaurant and eat pasta to better eat other types of foods. The thoughts kept coming unconsciously, and I just kept watching. And it didn't stop and it kept coming and coming. What I noticed was, how I can just see it and be somewhat at ease and not get caught up in the train thought process. It is one thing if you do it consciously but something else when it is unconsciously. So, will see what happens. I haven't made up my mind on what I will eat this evening until I leave the guesthouse or decide to cook. I will decide on the moment and whatever I decide, I will stick with it. And how I wake up the next day, whether I feel good or bad depending on the food I ate, it will not matter. It was just a decision with no attachments to the action.....
