In it we have what I call an actual fast because for 24 hours we do not eat anything, or drink water. We do not even use electricity or anything entertaining. Really, youre supposed to jes do nothing other than read the bible, and pray for forgiveness. And then we make a "pilgramage" really just a walk, wearing regular house clothes b.c youre supposed to have humility and not really be carein bout what people have to say. Its basically a day of shame for your sins, but I like it because truthfully, when it is done right, you feel a whole lot better, both spiritually and physically.

From doing this every year, Ramadan, not to undermine it, seems as though it would be a lot easier to do, but then again I never truely experienced it.

But I do like the posts some of you said about using it as a time to create a blueprint, using it as a time to change your diet and really and truely re-evaluate your life. I always used to build my relationship to God, but that sounds like a really good way to make it that much more personable and beneficial. Especially with me seriously looking at my health and just again exercising and eating a whole lot better.
nice - why judaism is off the radar and almost never talked about and build up on is still a mystery to me - people can talk about islam and christianity all day, but almost never judaism
and they seem to be the most successful

You learn a lot about yourselves when you don't eat or drink. Your body seems to drop down to a different energy source. When you do eat something after fasting, it tastes better then you ever remembered. Specially fruits, I can't even describe it. You'll never look at them the same after.

then what would be proper fasting techniques?

don't eat - don't intake anything - a full fast would include meditation where you don't take anything in to the eyes and ears - you focus on the movement of the air coming into your lungs and the vibration of your body - also tune out your inner talking
