It is said from time to time that “It is not that I don’t care, it is that I don’t mind.” When it is used in the English language and coming from the person or ego there is a basic explanation that not minding has a softer feeling to it, while not caring has a colder meaning.
Why Do We Want?
It seems that no matter how much we want something, it doesn’t take very long before we want something more, or something else.
Two Keys To Health. We take a lot for granted when it comes to our bodies. We ignore the signs and symptoms of illness and disease, thinking that the body is going to take care of it.
Sadly we don’t want to take responsibility for our bodies, and so just go about choking down all manner of what are labeled as foods, yet in actuality are toxic to our bodies.
Why is it we feel the need to have a day to start over? It is as if we are postponing our efforts of getting back on track, (usually a Monday) before we make the corrections we feel we need.
Many clients will use the reason, (which is just an excuse), so they can have a few more days, weeks, months, or sometimes years before they clean up their act as my dad used to say.
Change is constant.
You are not the changing experience you are what witness’s the change without attachment or meaning.
Autumn is upon us and everywhere there are signs of the changing season. Here in Southern Oregon, it happened overnight. One day I was speaking to a client, as we looked out over the trees which were still green and the next day several trees right in front of the studio turned yellow and red. It was as if they needed to be reminded of the season change and their part to play.
You are getting in your own way. Have you ever felt like that? You keep putting up walls around you and you feel more and more isolated.
What are these walls? They are nothing but thoughts of lack and resistance. They may have more of a story to them, such as I can’t find someone to love me, or I try but I always fail. It does not matter what the story is, it always come back to the original source of not feeling whole or complete, or in another word Loved.
The health of the body and the wellbeing of the mind are in direct proportion to realizing you are not the mind or the body. I have a feeling that is a bit confusing to most.
We say the body is a servant to the mind. By this it is understood that whatever thoughts the mind chronically holds on to, or if there is a acute experience that creates a deep emotional belief, the body will begin to express the underlying thought. No matter what the catalyst is the core emotion or belief is one of insecurity, or lack of wholeness. This could be understood as; I am not good enough, healthy enough, wealthy enough, smart enough, etc.
You are asleep. Did you realize this? That seems like a completely false statement doesn’t it? As if I am completely out of my mind.
Each one of these thoughts we can speak to, so you can wake up from the delusion of the mind.
A great many times when speaking with clients the question is asked, “What kind of supplements can I take to get better results?” It is a fair question. We know that supplements in their design whether natural or man-made, support the body in its abilities to function and heal.
So much of the time we are speaking to health and fitness. Let us now give our attention to what is referred to as wellbeing.
When we think about health and fitness it is directed to the body and the condition of its physical state. Is the body healthy, and is it fit? We look to see if there is any dysfunction, illness, or disease. Then we test the body’s condition of stability, strength, power, balance, speed, agility, and flexibility. These physical attributes are referred to as Bio-motor abilities. Based on these subjective and objective attributes we then can determine the levels of health and fitness.
