What is a fashionable habit that’s harmful to oneself? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today so that we may be cautious.

Simply because tasty food is available and is offered, one is tempted to overeat. We have air all around us but we do not breathe in more than we need. The lake is full but we drink only as much as thirst craves for. But overeating has become a social evil, a fashionable habit. The stomach cries, ‘Enough,’ but tongue insists on more, and man becomes a helpless target of disease. He suffers from corpulence, high blood pressure and diabetes. Moderate food is the best medicine to avoid illness. Do not rush to the hospital for every little upset. Too much drugging is also bad. Allow nature full scope to fight the disease and set you right. Adopt more and more principles of natural healing. The type of food you consume decides the degree of concentration you can command; its quality and quantity decide how much your self-control is lessened or heightened. Polluted air and water are full of maleficent viruses and germs and must be avoided at all costs. There are four pollutions man must be vigilant – of the body (removable by water); of the mind (removable by truthfulness), of reason (removable by correct knowledge) and of the self (removable by yearning for God).

– Divine Discourse, Sep 21, 1979.
