~ Bhagavad Gita
That fire is responsible for your digestion, your metabolim and your intelligence. When the fire is disturbed, it causes inflammatory responses in the body and anger in the mind.
We could say that all of human health is dependent on the health of this fire within your organism. It can either burn you, or it can make you as bright as the sun.
Just as the sun emits a radiance, when the human being is filled with life-force, illumination and love, the magnetic field emits a radiance. This radiance gives supreme clarity, luster of the eyes and skin, warmth of the heart, and a powerful healing presence.
It is Time to activate your radiance … to be experiential and thoroughly transformed.
and the essential to be unessential,
dwelling in wrong thoughts,
never arrive at the essential.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom,
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
Picture a glass of water, folks …
We’re not going to ask you if its half full or half empty…but rather how much
does it weigh?
Before you wonder where were going with this, open your mind for just a
It doesn’t matter how heavy the glass is – it’s how long you hold it for.
Holding it for a minute isn’t a problem.
After an hour, you’ll notice an ache in your arm.
If you’re holding it all day, your arm will become numb.
In each scenario the weight of the glass doesn’t change.
But the longer you hold it, the heavier it becomes.
Stress and worries in life work much the same way.
Think about them for a short while and nothing happens.
Look at them a bit longer they begin to hurt …
But if you feel constantly under the burden of stress, it can manifest in other ways…
Like a weaker immune system, lack of vitality, loss of wellbeing and happiness in
life, or depression and anxiety…
That’s why it’s important to remember to let go of your stresses, Friends, and to
focus your energy into positive pursuits that help both the mind and body flourish.
