The biology of the physics of obesity might have to do with eating but the meta-physics of obesity might depend on the inner discontent with a heavy mind full of the massive load of the negative feelings like hatred, jealousy, ego, pride and anger. Universal compassion might be the best and inexpensive antidote to today’s epidemic of obesity. Rather, it is the mental obesity that manifests as physical obesity in reality.
The holistic approach to obesity starts with spiritual management by a thinking doctor. That, when coupled with a sensible simple diet, would cure obesity permanently. All other quick-fix methods like the crash diets would necessarily come to grief in this background.

When we look into one apple, we see the entire universe. All the planets and stars, our sun and moon, the oceans, rivers, forests, fields, and creatures are in this apple. The apple tree is a manifestation of an infinite web of life, and for the tree to exist, every component of the web is vital. The apple is the gift of the tree and of the infinite universe propagating and celebrating itself through the apple. The seeds fall, in the apple, to become new trees, or are eaten by humans or bears or birds and thus distributed more widely, spreading and benefiting the tree and the whole system, unfolding in utter vastness, complexity, and perfection.
Intelligence is the ability to make meaningful connections, and this is true for all living systems, such as humans, animals, communities, and societies
