Motivation 2

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thought. With our thoughts, we make our world.” ~The Buddha
Always remember, there is more strength in you than you ever realized or even imagined. Certainly nothing can keep you down if you are determined to get on top of things and stay there.
– Norman Vincent Peale
The strength Peale spoke of is the strength of mind. Some have it, some don’t.
Those who don’t believe they have such great strength of mind likely don’t, because they have not discovered it or used it. Like many things in life, the mind atrophies in an intellectual sense with lack of use. Potential will never be realized so long as its existence is never known.
Those who know they have this powerful strength of mind and who use it do so carefully because it tends to frighten others who don’t understand the “phenomenon.” Many people unknowingly fear those with powerful minds. Some knowthey fear them but don’t know why.
How powerful is the human mind? Let’s take the example of someone who is very ill with cancer, who has friends and family praying for him to recover and “beat the devil.” This is, perhaps, the best use of prayer.
The suffering person believes that the praying friends and family will bring the power of God to bear upon his cancer. He believes he will conquer his cancer. Sometimes it happens. Not by accident.
Since all cells of the body are controlled by the brain and the mind is a function of the brain, the mind can get the brain to act to heal body cells. Cancerous cells can be persuaded by the brain to commit suicide just as easily as many other cells of our body commit suicide every day in order to make way for newer and healthier cells.
The story of a best friend comes to mind. Late one evening I received a phone call from his wife, saying that he had been taken to hospital after some sort of seizure or attack. This man had led a hard life. His dyslexia had prevented him from progressing far in school but he had prevailed by becoming an excellent baker. Following year after year of bad luck with employers whose businesses failed, casting him out to look for a new job each time, he found a new bakery business that invited him to design his own bakeshop kitchen.
In short, he was in his glory as the new bakery business took off and did very well. He was in every way, including his family, his home life and his job, at the peak of his career, of his life. This man so feared losing what he had worked so many years to find that I am convinced his brain killed him that night so that he could go out of life at his best, a success. Two autopsies failed to find any reason for him to have died.
He died with everyone who knew him being proud of his accomplishments and achievements. He died by his own choice, a choice of mind, as objectionable as this idea may be to some people. What I knew but no one else did was that this man had no idea how to develop the business he created any further. For him there was a wall at the top of the hill he had reached.
The brain can heal and it can kill. More importantly, it can work wonders while it has a body to carry it around. However, this is not the message we are taught as adolescents. Most of us learn as young adults that we are dependant on our employers for our survival and that we have many responsibilities, to our family, to our religion, to our neighbours, to our employer, to the advertisers who need us to buy all their stuff.
These responsibilities and dependancies prevent us from exploring the power of our own mind, usually because we are too busy with our responsibilities to use our brains in such a way as to discover the power it holds. The bit of free time we may have gets eaten up with recreation and relaxation so that we can recover from our work-heavy life.
We don’t take time to think. If we do, someone will surely tell us that we are wasting time because we aren’t accomplishing anything. To accomplish something–to succeed–we must be constantly at work in some way, usually either spending money or earning it so it may be spent later, according to the prevailing social norms of our society.
To learn how to use the extraordinary power of your mind you must learn to think beyond the events and trials of your everyday life. As with learning any skill to the point of being able to use it exceptionally well, you will require time to develop your mind power. It will take years of practice. Constant practice. With few rewards along the way. Much the way that Olympic athletes commit to a rigid regimen in order to compete with the best in the world.
As Peale said, “nothing can keep you down” once you master the power within your mind.

Purpose

How do you discover your real purpose in life? I’m not talking about your job, your daily responsibilities, or even your long-term goals. I mean the real reason why you’re here at all — the very reason you exist.
Perhaps you’re a rather nihilistic person who doesn’t believe you have a purpose and that life has no meaning. Doesn’t matter. Not believing that you have a purpose won’t prevent you from discovering it, just as a lack of belief in gravity won’t prevent you from tripping. All that a lack of belief will do is make it take longer, so if you’re one of those people, just change the number 20 in the title of this blog entry to 40 (or 60 if you’re really stubborn). Most likely though if you don’t believe you have a purpose, then you probably won’t believe what I’m saying anyway, but even so, what’s the risk of investing an hour just in case?
Here’s a story about Bruce Lee which sets the stage for this little exercise. A master martial artist asked Bruce to teach him everything Bruce knew about martial arts. Bruce held up two cups, both filled with liquid. “The first cup,” said Bruce, “represents all of your knowledge about martial arts. The second cup represents all of my knowledge about martial arts. If you want to fill your cup with my knowledge, you must first empty your cup of your knowledge.”
If you want to discover your true purpose in life, you must first empty your mind of all the false purposes you’ve been taught (including the idea that you may have no purpose at all).
So how to discover your purpose in life? While there are many ways to do this, some of them fairly involved, here is one of the simplest that anyone can do. The more open you are to this process, and the more you expect it to work, the faster it will work for you. But not being open to it or having doubts about it or thinking it’s an entirely idiotic and meaningless waste of time won’t prevent it from working as long as you stick with it — again, it will just take longer to converge.
Here’s what to do:
1.Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).
2.Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”
3.Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.
4.Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose.
That’s it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a counselor or an engineer or a bodybuilder. To some people this exercise will make perfect sense. To others it will seem utterly stupid. Usually it takes 15-20 minutes to clear your head of all the clutter and the social conditioning about what you think your purpose in life is. The false answers will come from your mind and your memories. But when the true answer finally arrives, it will feel like it’s coming to you from a different source entirely.
For those who are very entrenched in low-awareness living, it will take a lot longer to get all the false answers out, possibly more than an hour. But if you persist, after 100 or 200 or maybe even 500 answers, you’ll be struck by the answer that causes you to surge with emotion, the answer that breaks you. If you’ve never done this, it may very well sound silly to you. So let it seem silly, and do it anyway.
As you go through this process, some of your answers will be very similar. You may even re-list previous answers. Then you might head off on a new tangent and generate 10-20 more answers along some other theme. And that’s fine. You can list whatever answer pops into your head as long as you just keep writing.
At some point during the process (typically after about 50-100 answers), you may want to quit and just can’t see it converging. You may feel the urge to get up and make an excuse to do something else. That’s normal. Push past this resistance, and just keep writing. The feeling of resistance will eventually pass.
You may also discover a few answers that seem to give you a mini-surge of emotion, but they don’t quite make you cry — they’re just a bit off. Highlight those answers as you go along, so you can come back to them to generate new permutations. Each reflects a piece of your purpose, but individually they aren’t complete. When you start getting these kinds of answers, it just means you’re getting warm. Keep going.
It’s important to do this alone and with no interruptions. If you’re a nihilist, then feel free to start with the answer, “I don’t have a purpose,” or “Life is meaningless,” and take it from there. If you keep at it, you’ll still eventually converge.
When I did this exercise, it took me about 25 minutes, and I reached my final answer at step 106. Partial pieces of the answer (mini-surges) appeared at steps 17, 39, and 53, and then the bulk of it fell into place and was refined through steps 100-106. I felt the feeling of resistance (wanting to get up and do something else, expecting the process to fail, feeling very impatient and even irritated) around steps 55-60. At step 80 I took a 2-minute break to close my eyes, relax, clear my mind, and to focus on the intention for the answer to come to me — this was helpful as the answers I received after this break began to have greater clarity.
Here was my final answer: to live consciously and courageously, to resonate with love and compassion, to awaken the great spirits within others, and to leave this world in peace.
When you find your own unique answer to the question of why you’re here, you will feel it resonate with you deeply. The words will seem to have a special energy to you, and you will feel that energy whenever you read them.
Discovering your purpose is the easy part. The hard part is keeping it with you on a daily basis and working on yourself to the point where you become that purpose.
If you’re inclined to ask why this little process works, just put that question aside until after you’ve successfully completed it. Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably have your own answer to why it works. Most likely if you ask 10 different people why this works (people who’ve successfully completed it), you’ll get 10 different answers, all filtered through their individual belief systems, and each will contain its own reflection of truth.
Obviously, this process won’t work if you quit before convergence. I’d guesstimate that 80-90% of people should achieve convergence in less than an hour. If you’re really entrenched in your beliefs and resistant to the process, maybe it will take you 5 sessions and 3 hours, but I suspect that such people will simply quit early (like within the first 15 minutes) or won’t even attempt it at all. But if you’re drawn to read this blog (and haven’t been inclined to ban it from your life yet), then it’s doubtful you fall into this group.
Give it a shot! At the very least, you’ll learn one of two things: your true purpose in life -or- that you should unsubscribe from this blog.

Asthma Natural Cure – 1

Ayurveda approach

According to Ayurveda, increased in kapha dosha in the stomach is the underlying cause of asthma. From the stomach, the increased kapha blocks the flow of natural air, creating spasm in the bronchial tree, hence it progresses to the lungs, trachea and bronchi. This results wheezing in asthma.

To treat asthma the Ayurveda way, the kapha lodged in the lungs and bronchi, need to return to the stomach where it will be eliminated. Asthma is usually brought on by allergies and no matter what is the cause, it is important to relive the person from difficulty in breathing and asthmatic wheezing during an attack.

1 teaspoon of licorice root (yashti madhu)

Prevention is better than cure. Try and avoid the following:

Avoid dairy food like cheese, milk, yoghurt and even cream. Fermented food such as soy sauce and even alcohol, and all hydrophilic food such as salty items, cucumber and tuna should be avoided. You may also want to avoid yeast, mushrooms, peanuts, walnuts and all kinds of nuts. For people who are very sensitive to these food, may reaction at once, or may take a few hours.

· Allergens
Avoid any object that may cause a reaction and bring on an attack. If it’s dust, avoid book shelves or moldy basements, certain chemicals and even cuddly toys and pets with fur.
