A pleasant mind is happy, natural, healthy and blissful – then, how does a disease arise?
When the pleasant mind shrinks, the sharing quality changes into snatching habit. Man forgets his greatness, behaves like beasts and he snatches others belongings, their hardwork and thereby, his mind dwindles, stiffens, its broadmindedness disappears and begets diseases. We normally say “you have a kind heart, nothing wrong will happen to you.”
Our ancestors said that our thoughts become words, words become deeds, and deeds become habits and experience. The great poet Bharatiyar said
“ Let only goodness be thought of;
Let my heart be strong,
And my mind be clear.”
Today's psychological experts emphasis the same asking their patients to feel, mentally visualize and register in their subconscious that “I am healthy, strong, energetic and enthusiastic”, instead of saying, “I should get rid of diseases.” Because in their experience, they have seen many successful cases when this thought has been transformed into words, words into deeds and then into reality. We might have heard of the following quotes:
“A single tree cannot make a forest.”
“Unity is strength and success.”
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
Yes, it’s true. A single man cannot fulfill all his needs individually without society’s help, he cannot achieve anything. But, we forget the society and remain cutoff from it. So, the circle (mutual interdependence) remains incomplete or diminishes. Trouble starts to increase. There is a Tamil saying:-
“If you feed other’s children, your child would grow up on its own.”
When we have social consciousness, broad mindedness and broad thinking, without – fear, sin, worry, anger, pride, longingness etc. in such a state (situation), there is no place for disease. The most powerful country in the world – America, which exploits all the other countries of the world, has the highest number of diseased people. Its population is little more than the population of Tamilnadu, there, in every 34 seconds, one person dies of heart attack i.e., 2300 people die per day due to heart problems. Heart stops functioning not only because it is damaged, but there is another reason too behind it. Heart is an organ related to maternal feel (love). It distributes required amount of nutrients via blood, to all internal and external organs. Why does it seize functioning? In both internal as well as external organs, when there are lot of negative registrations, distress, lack of rational thinking and organ malfunction. The heart decides to seize functioning as it thinks - what is the use in me functioning? That is cardiac arrest. If we think it intellectually, man’s stress- compresses his internal organs, it stops its function. That is why, America stands first in consuming sleeping pills where more than consuming sleeping pills where more than 45% of its population consumes sleeping pills for insomnia. This is as per the authentic report of the CDC.
In those days, qualities like compassion, sympathy, sharing, non-violence, love etc were considered as wealth of our country. Our ancestors were not affected by a variety of diseases those days. As per the American cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton, our body is made up of 50 trillion cells which live in harmony, helping each other, have close coordination, they love each other and care for each other. Their qualities are reflected in a complete human. These qualities are felt in heart and mind.
But now we consume toxic food, gulp lot of chemicals thinking that we are health conscious and also consume drugs. These make our body cells drowsy, desensitize them and cut their inter-connectivity. So, the disease progresses from common cold to SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and at last ends in cancer. Chemicals only do the task of disintegrating and impairing cell connection.
Dr. Bruce Lipton says that no drug is capable of connecting the cells. It can only be done with food, our emotions and faith. Mental disturbances, faithlessness, disappointment, deceiving, exploitation, all these emotions and qualities create confusion among 50 trillion cells and thereby lead to autoimmune diseases (a condition when the immune system attacks its own tissues) like SLE, AIDS etc.
He says that your belief is your life- “Biology of belief” and says that it is the essence of Eastern countries. In fact, our spiritual guide Vivekananda said, “Whatever you think that you will be.”
We have forgotten our strength, superior faith, our sympathy, love, health. Some instruments were invented by foreigners for grabbing money from us, we believe and run after them to find whether we have diabetes, blood pressure, T.B, SLE, AIDS or cancer.
Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
The main purpose of life is to live rightly, think rightly, act rightly, the soul must languish when we give all our thought to the body.
