Day 10 urine/water
A new time-frame

I'm trying to be accustomed to the idea that no repair can happen even till after the blood acidity has been corrected which will probably mean until day 15 onwards. So I just have to get through these five days before I can even start thinking that way.
Slept quite a lot yesterday. I hate how "lying doing nothing with eyes closed" tends to mean a lot of unwanted mental activity that is either very stressful and unpleasant or intense and stimulating - the opposite of a rest. As I said before, _qua rest_, I can't believe that's better than reading some lightiana like _The Suicide Club_. Qua detox, getting "rid" of mental/emotional garbage, I can't see the difference between this and just the usual non-fast "monkey-mind" busy-ness - there's none.
It's not, non-fasting, a stressor for me to be still and do nothing - some people go crazy with it - but at this point, it's the activity fast that is making me crave music and books and paintings and film and nature activities and instruments - those cravings and deprivations are currently much worse than missing foods. And stuff is all around me, tempting, as food isn't - it's diificult.
No detox but some skin outbreak - not weak so much as tired. Able to do a couple of minutes rebounding - I think that'll be good. I suppose after we've read the various, ever-conflicting views of others, we have to decide from our own wisdom and intuition and our body's what we think is going to be salubrious on a fast and effective, and what a negligible consideration. I know most people decide it's more important to have something to do during a long fast and lose whatever efficiency of healing doing things might cost them. Some decide they'll be healthier during the fast if they exercise. Some decide they'll feel more secure, safer and comfortable if they do enemas, and so forth.
One thing I must warn urine fasters is about dehydation. Yesterday I newly resolved to drink, as one site recommended, 12 cups of liquid a day - much more than my body weight would indicate _normally_ by the fashionable rule for water drinking. It was disastrous. By the time I'd had 64 oz., half urine, half water, by around 3.30 p.m., I was feeling stressed from drinking, my body was very tired from it and was saying so, and I'd started a deluge of urine at that point, going on to urinate about 30 oz. more the rest of the day. I made an executive decision to, rather than drink it, consign it to the "aged" urine bowl for topical application - it was diluted and almost like water, anyway, and since it was late-in-the-day urine, I didn't feel so bad not drinking it, because it'd be the "less healing" time of urine, so they say. Today I am going to have to make some adjustment. The difficult part is, that with all that over-wateriness and -drinking, I still felt dehydrated, severely so at night - perhaps that is just the kind of dry mouth that one supposedly gets during a fast and does not indicate "dehydration" per se. In any event, it makes one feel like drinking water, and drinking water is very soothing. (It also feels great during a detox spell like faint-ness - I say this as one who does not non-fast usually enjoy water.) The problem with feeling like drinking water on a urine fast, and I think it's a problem that compounds dehydration problems, is that one is so frequently urinating. One is then forced to drink that urine, and then to wait a while after it before drinking water so it can do its work undiluted, and then one is not supposed to drink urine too soon after water! And urine is not thirst-quenching! I doubt if it's hydrating, however "structured" it supposedly is. Not anyway on a urine fast when it's so concentrated - it seems to create thirst. Anti-urinists will say, duh, that's because it's full of toxins, so then your body cries out for dilution just as it would if you ate/drank something full of toxins. I don't know as to that - I do know that my urine is stll quite powerful-tasting and makes me thirstier than even before I drank it.
As for urine versus water fasting, at this stage, I see absolutely no indication that this fast is more esoterically, deeply personally powerful in any sense (physically - spritually - psychologically - etc.) than a water fast would be. However, I am prepared to believe that the urine has enabled me to feel less weak and to be more in balance, and that it will ensure a certain bio-chemical equilibrium, as indeed it apparently has so far. It also may be that it has been the factor keeping detox symptoms so far to an absolute minimum, though I've mentioned beore that I don't know if that's a good sign or a bad sign.
