Durga Mata wrote about this:-
I write all this about food because of what Master told us, "That the pull that makes the soul reincarnate on this earth is desire, and the only way to get out of these rebirths is to learn to become desireless. The heavy load of desire weighs you back
to where the desires are formed." Master used to teil this story, "That if you have a desire for apple pie you will have to come back here in America to eat your apple pie, because only in America is apple pie made, but when the load is dropped you migrate to a finer sphere of existence." He has said also, "That souls who are already liberated who come back on this earth to heip others have no desires; therefore, they deliberately take on a harmless desire in order to keep the body from melting into the Infinite before their work is accomplished." Master intimated that he had taken the
desire of eating and food, for it was a harmless desire and could harm no one. How very privileged we were and still are that he so loved God's children to the extent of weighing himself down to this mundane world for our sake.
On the other issue, I think that the reasons for Mr Walters expulsion from SRF were rather more serious than overeating.
