Everyone has free will, but exercising your free will is not always liberating. People can get into disagreements with their own conscience, arguing about whether they deserve that piece of cake, and justifying it with an exercise regime promise. In the movie, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Anastasia asked Christian, ‘Why would I want to do this? What is the up side for me?’ He told her it would give her freedom, she would not have to agonize over decisions. The characters are an extreme case, with extenuating circumstances. There is a sense of freedom in the act of submission.
To have one person in charge, can have a positive impact, an example would be there can only be one Captain of a ship.
in life threatening situations, it is a relief to have a decisive leader at the helm.
Children need their parents to help them survive. When a parental figure is in charge, all the child has to do is explore, have fun and learn. There is a freedom in limits, but with that sense of freedom comes rules for safety and consequences for not following the rules.
This ties into food, because if you practice submission to your cells, you will experience freedom. You may have to give up some of your free will, but that is in exchange for a higher quality of life. It does not feel bad to freely submit, when you can feel the pleasure you receive. When you have the knowledge that if you have eaten a certain combination of food, than you will have given your body every vitamin it needs that day. It is kind of fun to think back over the day and see if there are any nutrients you missed, and it is empowering to eat the last few you missed that day. What is even more rewarding then knowing you did a complete job that day, is to feel the energy level rise in your nutrient rich system.
There is another liberating feeling, but it is harder to explain. When you tell a drug addict, how much more they will enjoy life when they are not addicted, they can hear your words but it does not change their desire for drugs. An alcoholic may realize they would get more done if they did not spend so much time drinking, but when happy hour approaches the words retreat. There is another positive feeling when submitting to your cells needs, it is freedom from addiction. It is a free feeling to walk down the potato chip aisle, and not feel the least bit tempted. Your body is satiated and does not crave the starch.
You can walk down the aisle and think of something more important, almost anything would be more important then thinking about potato chips. Unfortunately, if you have a strong free will and allow yourself chips, but also know you are on a diet, you will have to spend your time arguing with yourself. It is draining to calculate the pros and cons of each piece of food you buy. It is hard to describe the total freedom in letting your cells decide what food you buy.
