How leaving the law is like going gluten free

 September 21, 2017

By  Casey Berman

This past year, my wife, my 10 year old daughter, my 7 year old son and I dramatically revised our diet. For health and behavior reasons, we changed almost everything about how we eat.

We cut out gluten. We reduced our dairy intake. We drastically lowered our sugar eating and drinking. We cut out as many chemicals and processed food as possible.

Sounds great? Yes. Easy? No way.

Rewards don’t always scale long term

I’m very happy you did not visit our home last fall. The four of us were miserable: We wanted to eat bread. We wanted candy. We wanted to eat our beef jerky.

We had to continually research what we could or couldn’t eat. We had to experiment with new recipes. We had to get used to food that didn’t always taste that good.

And one of the main ways we got through it was incentivizing ourselves with rewards. Don’t eat that food, and you get this such and such prize.

But rewards, and discipline, don’t last that long. They don’t work long term. Our experiment was on shaky ground.

Feeling the benefits

It wasn’t until we moved from rewarding our discipline to focusing on our emotions that this diet change became successful … and easy … and just another (positive) part of our life.

Prizes went away. Instead we focused on the benefits of the new food we were eating. We opened our eyes to how the new food was actually making us feel better. We had noticeably less inflammation in our guts. Our chronic stomachaches went away. We behaved a lot better. We threw less tantrums. Our allergies were severely reduced.

We just noticedand became more aware of how we felt. We felt better.

The same goes for leaving the law

So too, this transformation called leaving the law will be difficult if viewed as an overwhelming, daunting task that you are mainly doing because you feel you “should†do it.

Instead, leave the law because it FEELS right for you to do. Focus on how leaving the law makes you feel. Hope. Freedom. Potential realized. Confident. Courageous. Happy.
