Health is much more than the mere absence of disease. It is a state of holistic harmony that enables you to meet your individual needs while actively pursing your life purpose. The more humanity moves from the heart to the head, the more conflicted and disease ridden we become.
For the past few years I’ve been living by a simple philosophy that has improved my own health and helped the healing of the people I work with.
What I like to call the ‘Body Calm Philosophy’ has the power to transform your relationship with life and make everyday experiences extra enjoyable and meaningful. Living by it, you will see your stress-levels drop significantly and will be more able to help your body to heal and stay healthy.
Beyond the likely body benefits, your relationships, career, wealth and wellbeing can also be positively impacted. Quite simply, I cannot overstate the profound and positive paybacks that can come your way if you apply it.
But before I share it with you, I need to provide the all-important caveat. It won’t work if it remains an intellectual idea that you simply think about. Rather it is an experiential way of relating to yourself and your life. Let the proof of the philosophy’s validity come from how your health, happiness, life satisfaction and success improve.
At the heart of the Body Calm Philosophy is the premise that the purpose of your life is to live fully and completely. Although this might seem like a rather simplistic or understated purpose, it is profound. Most people aren’t living fully or letting life events and experiences come to their conscious completions.
All too often, people resist what happens or are attached to something different happening and in the process, stop situations from fulfilling their positive purposes. They also don’t experience life in its fullness because they are so preoccupied by their mind-made version of reality instead. Busy recalling the past, distracted from the present or focused on thoughts about the future. They miss the magnificent moment and the magic that is constantly unfolding.
Tragically, countless people only ever tentatively exist. With the intention of ‘getting by’, they never get around to living fully and end up dying unaware of their remarkable self and the awe-inspiring beauty and perfection of life.
Everything happens to help you to fulfill this purpose. You are perpetually presented with invitations to move from the head to the heart, stress to serenity and from separation to oneness. In doing so, learning how to live more fully and completely, never wasting a moment.
As a natural consequence, life is less about what you do and more about who and how you are, as you do. Less about what happens and more about how you respond to whatever occurs. Do you resist or rejoice? Do you fight life or use everything to learn how to be more flexible and free? Do you act the victim or welcome the gifts you are given to grow? The choice can be yours, as long as you know that life happens not to hinder, but help you.
Fighting against life leads to disharmony that is stressful for the body, causing dis-ease and ill health. So instead of feeling attacked by life, I invite you to assume everything happens to help you to live fully and completely.
With the right mind-set you can use all that happens, including ill health and adversity, as invitations to step up and wake up. Reclaim your power to peacefully progress towards your life purpose and be the healthiest and happiest version of your Self.
