I am not talking about the wisdom of great philosophers, gurus and teachers. I am referring to simple day to day living practices of our ancestors.
Olden times, hunters spend time to gather food for the families, groups and clans. And when the food was brought, everybody assembled to eat.
Probably the hunters spent 16 hours to catch enough food so that everyone could eat for the rest of the time. And that’s exactly the, now popular, Intermittent fasting.
Olden times food was raw, fresh, natural and without external stimulants. We now advocate fresh, unprocessed and organic food.
Humans and animals had the ability to identify and use natural herbs and medicines. Though we lost the ability to spot the right herb, there’s a quest for herbal medicines.
Animals, however haven’t lost their instinct, but the challenge is destruction of nature for them to spot remedies.
And we make a hue and cry about this destruction and replacement of virgin jungle with concrete jungle.
Basically the challenge now is to acquire the animal instinct, back.
