One­ness and Well­ness

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

The word ‘health’ comes from the root word ‘whole’. When we say we’re “feel­ing healthy”, we’re say­ing that we have a sense of whole­ness within us. A per­son can be said to be of good health only if he feels com­plete in body, mind and spirit. Mere med­i­cal fit­ness does not in­di­cate com­plete well­ness in the true sense. In or­der to ex­pe­ri­ence this sense of whole­ness and one­ness, it’s im­por­tant that in body, mind and en­ergy func­tions, there is a cer­tain level of in­ten­sity.

In yoga, nei­ther the body nor the mind is looked at in iso­la­tion — the fo­cus is on en­ergy. If your en­ergy body is in proper bal­ance and full flow, your phys­i­cal body and men­tal body will be in per­fect health. For this, you have to go to the foun­da­tions of your en­ergy sys­tem and ac­ti­vate it in a proper way, build­ing a foun­da­tional yo­gic prac­tice that es­tab­lishes your en­ergy in a man­ner that your body and mind are nat­u­rally fine.

No one gets to live in per­fect con­di­tions. The pres­sures of life, the food that we eat, the air that we breathe, the wa­ter that we drink, can af­fect us var­i­ously. The more our ac­tiv­i­ties, the greater our ex­po­sure to things that can throw our chem­istry asun­der, cre­at­ing health prob­lems. But if the en­ergy in our sys­tem is prop­erly cul­ti­vated and kept ac­tive, these things will not have an ef­fect.

This life en­ergy in you cre­ated your whole body: bones, flesh, heart, kid­ney, ev­ery­thing. Do you think it can cre­ate health? If your en­er­gies are kept in full flow and proper bal­ance, they are ca­pa­ble of much more than just health.
