Food and sleep are necessary for life and also exceedingly pleasurable. It is easy to justify the abuse of things that we both need and desire. The insidious indulgence in (of) appeasing my natural and necessary appetites has made me a fool for food and a slave to sleep. The human appetite for such things is utterly insatiable. How many meetings with God have I missed while asleep long after acquiring the rest my body requires? How much irredeemable time have I squandered consumed by (with) the habitual process' in place to ensure that I eat- excessively, far beyond what my body requires? (Shopping, cooking, eating, cleaning etc.) Imagine the effectiveness of a disciplined life in this area- a soul that studies the subject of self control, only allotting food and sleep the exact (time and) attention they deserve and not a bit more.
