MediCation - C replaced by T - MediTation

Meditation Meditation  Meditation - What is it ?

“Practice meditation regularly. Meditation leads to eternal bliss. Therefore meditate, meditate, meditate."     -Swami Sivananda

"There is no time for Meditation - in the time available I will medicate, medicate, medicate "  - Todays Majority Thinking

Actually the act of doing and thinking nothing - is meditation. Unlearning what you have learnt is a process of meditation. The indirect advantage of meditation are many and when done regularly are more powerful than medication.

Medication is a short time quickfix to physical or mental afflictions with the hope that the body's auto immune system will then take over. 

Meditation if done porperly and regularly will prevent those physical or mental afflictions from occuring.

Is it a religious act of some kind ?  NO.

Have you ever done meditation in your life ? 

To all those who have not done meditation ever I have news for you.
We all meditate every day whether we know it or not. This the best type of meditation says the Dalai Lama. 

At night when your body instructs you to sleep and in due course your body muscle tone is loosened, heart rate comes down, there is improved blood circulation, blood pressure is normalized , your endocrine system endeavours to stabilize, overall it resets your physical, electrical and chemical systems All this while you are in deep sleep state - unconscious state. 

What was so religious about the above fact ?

We will quantify the rest and rejuvenation one achieves by sleeping 8 hours as One Unit of wellness. This is assuming this was a sound sleep without any interruptions.

Now if you Meditate while your mind is in the  conscious state the advantages your receive during meditations is THREE times more effective than what you receive during sleep.

To put it in another way, if you could meditate, in the conscious state, for 3 hours - it is equivalent to 9 hours of sleep. You now have 6 additional hours to do any activity of choice - write a book perhaps or mediate some more !

To explain this further let me go to the very fundamentals.
There are SIX basic systems in the human mind body continuum.

The Mind System -  The Third Eye - Brain
The Nervous System - Vayana  Vayu. - Over all
The Respiratory System -Udana Vayu - Throat 
The Circulatory System - Prana  Vayu - Throat to Heart
The Digestive System - Samana Vayu -  Heart to Navel
The Elimination System - Apana Vayu - Navel to Rectum

If any one system fails the body cannot last.

Breathing rate is normally 15 breaths per minute (bpm) for a healthy person who will then live to a 100 years of age.
Now if we reduce the breathing rate to 6 bpm by consciously slowing the breathing rate - this will effect the circulatory system by reducing the number of heart beats and the consequently the blood pressure. This will have a beneficial effect on the Nervous System which in turn will provide a better ambient currents to improve the Digestive and Elimination system.
You did hear of person in stress condition (mind) does tend towards constipation

One of the fact is that the Human Body can correct it self by triggering the body’s  auto immune system. The conditions have to be right for the Auto Immune System to be effective.

What are those conditions ?

  • Stillness of body. (When sleeping you can achieve it and when in a meditative pose) 
  • A quite place where one can mediate or sleep.
  • A calm state of mind. (When sleeping you can achieve it but you are in deep sleep - unconscious. In meditative state you can achieve the calm state while in the conscious state).
  • To increase blood flow to extremities and organs.

To illustrate let us visit a newly born baby and somebody in their thirties.
The baby smells good if the pamper effect is not taken into account. The baby has all their SIX systems working efficiently and in balance. One important factor in the system is removal of toxins from cells which are dead and to bring fresh nutrients to new cells. 

In the baby this system is working most efficiently as compared to an older person who has picked up bad habits during their lifetime. If the baby is not bathed she/he still smells fresh - the older body will start smelling because of non removal of toxins. On the other extreme when flesh rots the smell is awe full.

Fact- If blood circulation is increased to organs and extremities we can have excellent toxins removal and nutrient delivery to cells of those regions.

How do we increase Blood Circulation ?
You can only use your body and their systems, no chemical or physical aids are allowed to increase blood circulation.
Lets us follow a package of air ( one Breath) which was breathed in and what difference did it make.

You took in AIR which is : NORMAL

You took in AIR which is possible during  MEDITATION

So we agree if we reduce breath per minute and breath deeply and diaphragmatically so we can increase the oxygen absorption. 

So that package of air went to the alveoli and a gas exchange takes place from the CO2 rich blood coming back to the heart. Freshly oxygenated blood  is diverted by the heart into the circulatory system.

The CO2 absorbed from the blood in the alveoli  is exhaled by the lung. So that package of air was processed so as to move fresh blood forward by a few inches. 

At this point let us say we can achieve this increased absorption of O2 and increased expulsion of toxins when meditation is achieved.  We will do a practicum to prove this.

As an analogy lets us say a human has a heart which is connected to a long pipe. The blood in the pipe irrigates a body organ and comes back to the heart. The long pipe is coiled like a garden hose in the body. So merely the process of blood circulation continues as usual.

Now when one wakes up they immediately start thinking of the day to day affairs  and also the reasons which cause stress. Due to this flight response due to stress the muscle tone of the entire body implodes. This causes a constriction in the long pipe. This causes the heart to pump harder. This stress is like a person standing on top of the coiled garden hose. Generally  STRESS is defeating the forces of longevity.

Now in this state if we achieve meditation it is very productive. For a start we request the person standing on your chest to get off. This softens the muscle tone of the body  and  automatically improving blood flow to the organs and extremities and is in cooperation with the forces of longevity.

Meditation alone  improves the blood flow considerably. Now additionally by just modulating your breath easily you can further increase blood flow by additional 30%. 

Now this is specific exercises of Yoga called Pranayama which can achieve this. Presently let us learn how to achieve meditation before we learn Pranayama. 

Learn to walk before we run !

Lets go for a leisurely walk.

Love and Light

What is LOVE.....

What is Love?

Are you happy with your definitions? 

There are two laws, the Law of Expansion and the Law of Contraction. Hate others, you are going through the Law of Contraction. Love all, you are going through the Law of Expansion.

Do you feel your State of Mind (SOM) vibrates more positively when you are vibrating in harmony with the emotion called love. One of the highest emotions on the Emotional Scale.

If one dwells or acts on the love emotion as a recipient or as a provider- one's state of mind soars towards the positive.

Let us also see from a different perspective.
Hate is a negative emotion  which is caused because of absence of Love.
Yes Hate is the dichotomy of Love.

How would we know what is Love if there was no Hate ? 

We can say love and hate are drawn from the same bucket of emotions - one causes aversion and the other attraction.

In the hierarchy of the love-hate emotions the best is  the Love of Self.

All other recipients of the emotion are secondary.

Your Mind is connected to your body with the two sentries, breath - inhalation and exhalation. All the emotions come specifically from the Four Primitive Fountains of Life, conscious mind and randomly from your unconscious mind, 95% of the total mind. 

Emotions then cause thoughts or actions with respect to a recipient to who it is targeted.  The perception of the receiver will be as per their domain of knowledge, their goodness scale. The feed back to the initiator will also be perceived as per their domain of knowledge, their goodness scale. So this is how the see saw goes on.  

Now what happens when you, alone, are present in the interaction above  which occurs.

It is a fact that you love yourself if you look after your Body the best possible way you can, improving your knowledge so as to dispel ignorance,  better you perceptive powers, eating right so it does not effect your health and generally improve your virtue count during this spell of conscious living.

110 years old, loving and childlike. 
Press Picture for Details
Simply put if you vibrate positively with the love emotion you will have a profound effect on your disposition and health. 

Do not dwell into the lower emotions of hatred, shame, fear, grief, condemnation, race prejudice for they take you away from self love. 

 "We can only love another; if we love ourselves first.” - Anonymous 

We can sure say that the absence of hate is tending towards love.

What does Lao Tzu say about Goodness and love…..

A truly good man is not aware of his goodness,
And is therefore good.
A foolish man tries to be good,
And is therefore not good.

A truly good man does nothing,
Yet nothing is left undone.
A foolish man is always doing,
Yet much remains to be done

When a truly kind man does something, he leaves nothing undone.
When a just man does something, he leaves a great deal to be done.
When a disciplinarian does something and no one responds,
He rolls up his sleeves in an attempt to enforce order

Therefore when Tao is lost, there is goodness.
When goodness is lost, there is kindness.
When kindness is lost, there is justice.
When justice is lost, there is ritual.
Now ritual is the husk of faith and loyalty, the beginning of confusion.
Knowledge of the future is only a flowery trapping of the Tao.
It is the beginning of folly.

Therefore the truly great man dwells on what is real  and not what is on the surface,
On the fruit and not the flower,
Therefore accept the one and reject the other.

Tao Te Ching, Chapter 38 ,

When the Tao is lost , there is goodness. So this is the goodness scale we talk about. In a Tao centred life there is no good or bad, there is no scale. It is what it is. All is perfect in Nature. When we deal with our own selves  we have to be Tao centred in how we act. We are not trying impress our own self!

"We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves”  - Johann Wolfgang Goethe 

“He who outwardly restraining the Organs of Senses and Action (Physically restrain the Senses); sits mentally dwelling on the Object of Senses, (What the Senses will perceive as an object) that man of deluded intellect is called a hypocrite” - Bhagwad Gita.

Attachment is misery, non-attchment means love.
All of our possessions and relationships are viewed as attachments.
If we view all such with love, non-attachment rather than attachments then we will not feel the misery on their loss.
All thing and relationships are transient and should be enjoyed with non-attachment and love.

When there is non-attachment involved there is absence of hate and as such surfaces unconditional love.

On a survey conducted on people of 100 years and over guess what was the most important ingredient of longevity.
Yes you guessed it it was Love. This could be love and acceptance provided by family members, intellectual companionship by friends or generally a person of disposition where hating some  one was not part of the mind set. All the participants accepted this as the most important ingredient in their longevity.—Why ?

1 years old loving 
When you are angry which you will be when hate is part of your mental disposition, The muscle tone is constricted as in a fight/flight response, which in turn causes all the blood vessel/pipes in the body to contract ever so minutely, this causes less blood to reach the extremities or organs while keeping the blood pressure constant. - Loss of Blood irrigation to cells due to contraction.(minute effect multiplied by a lot of time!)

If the heart increases blood pressure to achieve irrigation levels previously sought ; The increase of Heart beats due to contraction.

If the muscle tone is relaxed and there is no constriction - You have maximum flow to organs and extremities where the toxins are removed efficiently and fresh food for new cell is received. — Simple logic , long lasting carbon life form. 

This actually can be witnessed when inspecting a baby. The baby breaths what is required, without constriction of blood vessels/ pipes, as they are all infused with love the natural emotion. This causes efficient exchange of nutrients and toxins at the cell level. The baby have an excellent body smell due to this efficient exchange. As part of human conditioning the baby learns how to hate at some point.

The only better way to live is with Love as the dominating emotion, hopefully with non- attachment and unconditional.

It is for you to see where you are and where want to go. You decide and go forth with love always smelling nice.

Being a Carbon Life Form we need to consume carbon energy - food to sustain ourselves as a living body. We can also can use energy in form of sunlight to sustain the body, that requires a little practice.

As a rule most people eat three times more than what is essential for good health. When we eat any food there are two factors which are most important  in consuming it. First is the Nourishing value and the Second is the pleasant sense of taste.

For example if one was given a bowl of shelled peanuts and said you need to eat 40 nuts only as the required refuelling for the body. 

In this experiment of eating peanuts to satiate hunger you see how we eat mentally when for good consumption and use of resource we have to consume much less.

If you ate one peanut at a time, and only have the second one after the first was chewed and swallowed well  completely, you could take 20 minutes to finish the 40 nuts. You took in some air while eating and also the time base tells your brain you have been eating for 20 mins and starts sending signals of fullness.

On the other hand if you ate 10 nuts at a time and took 30 seconds to chew it you could finish all the nuts in 2 minutes. Also the fullness factor would only come after 20 morsels of 10 nuts each. You end up having 200 nuts to feel full. This is mental eating.

It is the same taste of the peanuts  when you eat one peanut or you eat 10 at a time.

In this experiment of eating peanuts to satiate hunger you see how we eat mentally when for good consumption and proper use of resource we can consume much less.

This happens with air also. We breath air with  21% oxygen and exhale with 16% Oxygen. We only absorb 4 % of Oxygen every time the 15 times we breath in a minute.

If we reduce the amount of breaths to 4 times per minute then we would absorb more than 6% oxygen.

We learn that to err on the side of more becomes part of our learning and as such defines our goodness scale to measures all things in life.
We want to feel the fullness in the stomach and that defines - my hunger is satiated.
Any thing less would mean that you were not getting enough food.!

 As an example, the food servings given in a Texan diner are so huge if you are not used to it but adequate to the people used to that size of serving.

When I joined the naval training  as a cadet officer the daily meals given was considered not enough. I had come from home where a feeling of fulness had to be achieved after eating a meal. 

Unknown to me the food serving on the training ship was scientifically  calculated to be more that adequate for a growing kid of 17 years.

After a year, the same serving could not be finished by me and I was more fitter than a year ago. All the extra food you could not eat was shared with a new junior cadets who surely would be hungry.

We can train ourself to only to nourish ourself, just like we refuel a car - no more no less.
This will ensure less processing of food by our digestive system and also reduce the amount of nutrients lost in the excreted waste.

We would do this to ensure good health by avoiding overeating, and collectively, if the entire world agrees, the living planet will have that much less nutrients to process and the associated release of biogas.

Our learning point here is that nourishment by way of food should be what the body requires to operate efficiently- any excess should be avoided.

The portions should be adequately sized and tasting well.  We have come to an unhealthy conclusion , taste is important and portioning depends on how much you require to be full. The sense of taste was designed to reject food the taster did not like.

What to eat, when to eat, portion and  recipes are not in the scope of this post only the fact eat less and you will be healthier.  

It is all your own will,  to eat to live or  to live to eat.
There are more health issues with over eating and there ever is with under eating.

So you can attach minimum 15 more years to your lifespan if you choose to eat to live.
