Living Healthy and Well

In today’s post, Sadhguru explains how a person can be truly healthy in every aspect of life, not just free from disease: “The word health comes from the word whole. When your body, your mind, your emotion, your energies are in tune with each other and you feel wholesome within yourself, that is when you feel healthy.”
 

Sadhguru explains how a person can be truly healthy in every aspect of life, not just free from disease.

Sadhguru: The word health comes from the word whole. When your body, your mind, your emotion, your energies are in tune with each other and you feel wholesome within yourself, that is when you feel healthy. A large number of people in the world, including many who considered medically healthy, are unhealthy. They may not need any medication but their system does not know any wholesomeness. There is no sense of peace or joy in them. You think you are unhealthy only when you get depressed beyond a certain point, but you are unhealthy if you are not bubbling with joy. There is no wholesomeness in terms of the internal composition of who you are.

This has happened because you never paid any attention to it. This whole attitude of trying to fix everything from the outside has to go. No doctor or medicine can ever give you health. They can assist you when you have fallen into ill health and help you out of it a little bit, but health has to happen within yourself.

If health has to come from within, we definitely have to do some inner engineering.

Health is not just a physical aspect. Today modern medicine says that man is psychosomatic. What happens in the mind naturally happens in the body. What happens in the body in turn happens in the mind. So the way we are living here, our attitude, our emotion, the basic mental state, the level of activity we are going through, how streamlined our minds are, all these are very much a part of your health.

If health has to come from within, we definitely have to do some inner engineering. We definitely have to create an atmosphere where our body, mind, emotion & energy are in good harmony.

If people invest about twenty-five to thirty minutes a day in the morning towards their inner wellbeing, towards certain simple processes with which they can engineer their body and mind to experience full health and wellbeing, then every human being is capable of living healthy and well.

I seldom leave a response, however after browsing
through a bunch of responses on Living Healthy and Well. I
actually do have some questions for you if
you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks look as if they are left
by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I'd like to keep
up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your
social community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
