DAY 356: Disinformation In The New Age

disinformation

Here’s a very interesting chapter about choosing the middle path.

The middle path requires awareness and increased consciousness which discourage disinformation.

“Because we have taken pieces of wisdom from different places, it does not always offer us a complete picture of the masters involved.

What many people may not even know is that many quotes that are floating around on the internet and which we believe are the words of our masters, are fake, misworded, or taken out of context (e.g. see FakeBuddhaQuotes.com).

While people may see this as a relatively trivial matter, it really isn’t.

After all, how would we feel if we saw a Facebook banner which displayed an image of Jesus with the quote ‘Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas! – Jesus Christ’?

[…]

While the answer is not likely not to be found in any kind of extreme, the disinformed new age appears to be split between the two ends of the spectrum: an ‘all spirit’ focus at one end (with ideals of love and light) and a hedonistic ‘all material’ focus at the other (with ideals of manifesting ‘unlimited’ abundance, fame, etc.).

There is one path we have yet to collectively try yet: the middle path that Buddha was known to speak of. The middle path leads us to a simple path; one not found in remaining disinformed, but in becoming enlightened.”

DAY 355: The Wellness Concept

wellnessThis is a lengthy post, but it contains such simple, down to earth, easy to follow and yet such profound advice from a prominent medical doctor, that I wanted to share it with you.

Simple is always better!

Prof. B.M. Hegde wrote Chapter 49 in the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge. He is an Indian medical scientist, educationist and author. He is the retired Vice Chancellor of the Manipal University and the head of the Manglore Chapter of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. He has authored several books on medical practice and ethics. A recipient of numerous national and international awards including Dr. B. C. Roy National Award, Pride of India Award, Padmabhushan, he is also the Editor in Chief of a medical journal, “Journal of the Science of Healing Outcomes”. www.bmhegde.com

Here it is! Simple and profound.

“Human beings are not just their bodies; they have their all-pervading mind and their spirit. All three of them need to be kept healthy for total health and wellness. Usually it is not what one eats that kills her/him; it is what eats one (one’s negative thoughts) that kills. The best bet to keep good health is to have a healthy mind, which boils down to practicing universal compassion. To get into that state of mind (consciousness), Yoga and breathing techniques would help a lot. Yoga has very little to do with any religion and could be practiced by all.

To be healthy, one has to change (be the change) but can’t expect the world to change overnight. Therefore one could expect others to hurt us sometime. There again, the best antidote for hurt is to cultivate the greatest asset of forgiveness.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run, this earth shall belong to you my son, and… more, you shall be a MAN‘ wrote Rudyard Kipling years ago in his celebrated poem ‘IF’. This is the best health advice that I have been able to find in the Western literature.

Eating in moderation, the foods that please one, without too much change in the food quality from its natural state, would go a long way to help the immune system to keep the repair mechanism in excellent shape. Worrying about the micro-contents of the food is of lesser importance as long as one does not pick and choose foods according to the modern food fads and corporate advertisements.

Preserved foods are a curse. Let the food be as fresh as possible. Small frequent feeds keep the metabolism on even keel. Large meals at long intervals are not conducive to body physiology.

Each region, ethnic group and race has had its own food habits that kept mankind going for 50,000 generations. The food habits evolved over thousands of years, thanks to our ancestors’ observational research.

Modern nutrition does not have a strong foundation and the reductionist cohort studies being fed to the gullible masses lack the backing of good science. That is exactly the reason why we get conflicting advices now and then! If the Mediterranean diet is good for them in their habitat, it does not mean that it will be good for another race in another continent.

Meal times should be happy times and the family getting together at mealtime is the best bet to get benefit from foods.

The two enemies of human health are tobacco and alcohol, both of which must be kept at a distance.

Regular exercise, moderate in quantity, the best being a daily walk for an hour, would be the ideal tonic for the immune guard. Very heavy exercise might not be good for the system. The key word in every human endeavor should be moderation in everything one does. Extremes are always dangerous. Swimming is another excellent exercise but is not universally applicable and could be expensive to the majority.

There is no substitute for hard work as another good immune booster. If the hard work involves physical exertion additional regular exercise is not needed. The only qualification is that one should love one’s work to get the benefit. Hating one’s work and working under duress could destroy health.

Spirituality has very little to do with religion. Spirituality for good health is just sharing and caring! Sharing provokes the immune system and hating others depresses the same. A small child smiles 400-500 times in a day. If we take a lesson from that the world would be a better place to live. Natural smile releases so many healthy, bio-positive endorphins from the brain.”

Read it again, and again… and again.

DAY 354: Mantra Healing

Medicine-Buddha-Mantra

“The ancient Indian Seers discovered fifty principle acoustic roots (or matrikas) which, either alone or in combination, are at the root of all psychic expression.

These fifty roots, on which they based the fifty letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, correspond to the fifty principle natural tendencies of the human mind, such as fear, anger, compassion, etc. These fifty natural tendencies combine together to give rise to the infinitely rich matrix of human thought.

One or more of these natural tendencies are always active in the human mind at any given point of time to one degree or another, and the combination thereof produces the phenomenon we know of as human thought.

When these fifty natural tendencies become completely quiescent, then the pure consciousness shines in its original, unaltered state.

Among the various psychic tendencies, the acoustic roots which awakened the core tendencies of the individual mind became the subject of intense research; with the passage of time the processes of rhythmic chanting or the mantras were born which tuned not only the mind and the emotions, but the body and its glands as well to the subtle wave lengths of the ‘Self ’.

The rhythmic chanting forms a complex pattern of vibrations meant to activate certain centers in the human body by repetition of the mantra. Each Mantra holds the ability to open y our energy body, emotions and soul to a higher vibrational level. Silently repeating rhythmic chanting creates a mental vibration that allows the mind to experience deeper levels of awareness and leads into the field of pure consciousness from which the vibration arose.”

DAY 353: Astrology – A Tool For Healing Energies

Horoscope icons

Horoscope icons

“Throughout history, famous people have studied astrology and used it for various purposes.

The Three Wise Men in the Bible were astrologers and learned that Christ would be born at a conjunction of planets. The Bible is filled with astrological information.

Pythagoras and Sir Isaac Newton were astrologers.

In India, astrology is the part of the Vedas. Veda means original knowledge and truth. Vedic means ‘of the original knowledge and truth’.

Astrological principles were written 12,000 y ears ago by 12 famous Maharshis like Narada, Bhrigu, Vasista, Parashara, Jaimini, etc. These Maharishis are acknowledged as having been instrumental in preserving the ancient knowledge.

The Vedic chart is a road map depicting history, genetics and karma of a person. Vedic astrology has details of the horoscopes of Lord Krishna, Lord Rama and many other ancient Indian kings and queens, recorded thousands of years ago.

Astrology, when used for fortune telling and understanding the personality is only a very limited part of astrology and does not highlight the complete value of it.”

Dr. Dipikka Sanghi Gupta wrote Chapter 47 in the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge. She is a gifted and famous astrologer based in Delhi, India. She is the author of a great book on numerology, entitled “Numerology – An Amazing Science” www.deepikaastro.com

DAY 352: Color Therapy

color

“Light and its constituent colors have a strong effect on both body and mind whether we realize or not. We always respond to color at all the levels: mental, emotional and physical.

The  red end of the spectrum tends to make our body tense and an excessive exposure to red increases blood pressure. On the contrary, blue relaxes our body and lowers blood pressure. When we see a red room, it appears smaller than a blue one. Emotionally, red excites us whereas blue calms us.

Of all the colors, red and blue light have the most significant and marked effect on our body. Red light increases blood pressure, respiration, muscular activity and heart rate. Blue has an exactly opposite effect, relaxes the body, calms and soothes the mind and helps insomnia sufferers. Exposure to blue light over the whole body has long been a cure for children with jaundice.

Our general health and well-being is affected by too much and too little light. People who do not get adequate light because they spend too much time indoors in artificial light, which does not provide the full spectrum found in the natural daylight or because they live in latitudes where the sun is absent for long periods during winter, are prone to the ‘winter blues’. On the other hand, excessive exposure to light speeds development and can even induce an ageing effect.”

DAY 351: Feng Shui

office_feng_shui“In Feng Shui, the application of the concept of Yin and Yang brings harmony, balance and good future.

If the Yin and Yang are not balanced in your home and workplace, their imbalance can cause physical, mental and emotional problems. Very dark rooms can cause depression and fatigue. On the other hand, extremely bright rooms can cause headache.

Feng Shuing your house should be simple. Feng Shui is the art and science of living in harmony with nature. By living in harmony with our environment, we can harness the beneficial energies known as ‘Chi’ to promote prosperity and vitality.

Chi (Pronounced Chi) is described as the air we breathe, Earth’s magnetic field, cosmic radiation, sunlight, spirit, our luck. Chi means all this and much more. Chi is ‘Life’s Breath’. To Japanese Chi is ‘Ki’, to Hindus Chi is ‘Prana’ and ‘Ankh’ to Egyptians.

The concept of Chi is known to all cultures. Chi governs our health, wealth and happiness. Feng Shui harnesses the positive aspects of Chi for our holistic well-being. Chi rides the wind (Feng) and is retained in water (Shui). Feng Shui enables us to harness the Chi of our living places like home and offices.”

DAY 350: Akashic Records – An Illuminating Healing Journey

akashic records“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love. And then we return home” – Australian Aboriginal proverb

Akashic records have existed from the beginning of time. Even though the name is derived from Sanskrit, they are recognized and interpreted across different cultures and belief systems (in the Torah’ as the Book of Remembrance; in the Bible as the Book of Life).

According to the Hindu Garuda Purana, Chitragupta tracks and builds a record of every action of each life form from birth to death. In mystical traditions these documents are referred to as the Akashic records, said to contain every action that has ever taken place in the Universe.

Edgar Cayce (1877- 1945), the American mystic also known as the ‘sleeping prophet’, used the trance channeling method to access the records and relayed information and wisdom pertaining to spirituality and human evolution.

Besides Edgar Cayce, theosophist Helena Blavatsky (1831- 1891) referred to “indestructible tablets of the astral light”, recording both the past and the future of human thought and action; anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner (1861- 1925) also referred to the Akashic Records in his writings.

According to quantum physicist Ervin Laszlo – “it is the electromagnetic imprint of everything that’s ever happened in the Universe”. In simple language it would be fair to call the Akashic records a vibrational filing system where every thought, word, emotion and action generated by soul experience since its beginning is recorded, which translates directly to past, present and future possibilities. Whether you come from a scientific or spiritual perspective or both, the energy of the Akashic records is deeply healing and liberating.”
