Healthy living while the world is sick

Leading a healthy life in spite of today’s increasing pollutions and stress is a real challenge.

In developed countries, authorities offer recommendations such as eating less meat and more fruits and vegetables, practising sport, avoiding tobacco and drugs, reducing intakes of coffee and alcohol.

On the face of it, all this sounds fine.

In fact, it is incomplete, superficial and misses the essential.

Take fruits and vegetables. Eating more of them is a good idea, but only if they are fresh, seasonal, natural (not genetically manipulated) and unadulterated by fertilisers, pesticides, artificial radiation or transportation.

But most people in developed countries buy their fruits and vegetables from large scale retail, whose products are generally far from meeting the basic requirements just highlighted.

As for meat, eating modest quantities is probably quite healthy. But again, provided it is natural and unadulterated.

And provided animals have been treated well and killed with care and respect. The latter is as much a health issue as an ethical one.

In fact the two are inseparable. Animals that have been tortured in large intensive installations are not only full of toxins and drugs, but their cells carry negative vibrations which cause invisible but real harm to whoever eats them.

Practising sports: always a good idea? Not necessarily.

What the body and the mind (and the soul) need is regular exercise. Natural exercise, such as walking or swimming, is perfect if done in moderation, taking into account one’s constitution, condition and age.

But exhausting energy in competitive sports whose aim is by definition to go over the limit cannot be good, except possibly for exceptional individuals. And even for them?

Avoiding drugs. Of course it’s a good idea, but not just illegal drugs: also the myriads of legal drugs, including vaccines, produced by pharmaceutical companies and so liberally prescribed by conventional doctors.

By the way, bear in mind that companies spend tens of thousands of dollars per doctor in marketing and promotion, pay armies of full time lobbyists and finance university departments and research institutes.

Don’t expect any objectivity from the system concerning benefits and collateral damages of pharmaceutical products.

And now other recommendations that should be made and almost never are.

Avoid using cell phones, wifi’s and micro wave ovens. Try and not watch TV. Limit time spent on computers.

Make sure your home (and work place) is healthy. Not only in terms of basic hygiene and safety, but also in the more subtle terms of harmony: shape of rooms, light, colours, orientation, placing of furniture…etc.

In all your activities, pay heed to natural daily and seasonal cycles of energy attached to your constitution.

Know yourself and stay in touch with oneness. Practice meditation. Be genuinely self confident and mute your ego.

Avoid check-ups and tests; most of them cause unnecessary anxiety and are done primarily to find new patients for the medical industry.

Healthy living is infinitely more than a series of robotic dos, don’ts, and tests.

In the holistic world view, healthy living is not so much trying to avoid diseases and keeping smug, comfortable and self centred while the world is being destroyed.

It is respecting your body/mind/soul to accomplish your divine mission in this brief incarnation.

And, whoever you are, your divine mission is particularly important in our time of crisis.

Keep radiating positive loving thoughts and emotions, and your body/mind/soul will resist increasing pollution and stress as long as needed for your mission.

Fear not, sleep tight.

Love,

Leo
