Health Consciousness: The Essential Unity of Body, Mind & Soul as the Key to Well-Being
"The mind creates multiplicity everywhere to cover the simplicity in nature."
Health is not merely of the body. It is the natural expression of the body, mind and soul when they are in rhythm with the One Life. True health is the harmony of life within us, consisting of peace of mind, happiness and well-being. It is not merely a question of physical fitness, but is rather a result of the soul finding free expression through the mind and body of that individual. Such a person radiates peace and happiness, and everyone in his presence automatically feels happy and contented.
If we really want health, we must be willing to work for it, the same as we do for wealth, education or any other accomplishment in life. And those who seek health, truth and love will find it, if they devote themselves to it with zest and a purpose that never waivers. We become that which we contemplate. Negative thoughts and fears make grooves in the mind as negative energy waves of despondency and hopelessness. We cannot think negative thoughts and reap positive results, and therefore we must assert the positive, and maintain a positive pattern of thinking and acting as our ideal.
At the very core of the search for true health lies the essential question of what life is for. What is our personal goal, in terms of the use we make of this body and mind - and what is the purpose of the divine gift of this human life? Merely having no physical pain does not always mean a happy condition of mind. We are entitled to more and have a greater purpose for being in this world. Each one of us is seeking the inner happiness that comes not from outward accomplishments,
