Meditate to Heal

Meditation is mind-body medicine. It is the most effective mind-body therapy not only for disease prevention but also for self-healing.
For centuries, meditation has been associated with religions because during meditation it is easy to conjure up images of divinity or the metaphysical and thereby instrumental in connecting with the Divine. However, nowadays, in this world of stress and turmoil, meditation therapy is getting attention in the medical field because it relaxes both the body and the mind. Stress is the major underlying cause of many human diseases. Find out how you can eliminate stress from your life through the mind: No Ego No Stress.
Meditation is medicine in that your mind controls your thoughts, which control your actions, and your actions are often responsible for your health. Contemporary life is stressful, in particular in the present economic environment, which generates emotional reaction, anxiety, anticipation, and worry. Naturally and inevitably, your mind focuses on the past or the future, or both. The past is the breeding-ground for stress: your memories of past difficulties or failures are projected into the future, which become real and almost tangible to you.
Remember, in life, nearly all your thoughts, including your desires and fears, are based on either the past or projection of those memories in the past into the future as desires or worries. These festering thoughts may begin to feed on the mind, generating negative emotions that affect your hormone secretion, and thus affecting your overall health. 
Meditation is medicine in that it provides a break or relaxation for your thinking mind. Your body needs rest, and so does your mind. It is a myth that when you sleep, your mind is resting. No, it is not, because your mind still works in your dreams.
Meditation is mind-body therapy because it helps you focus your mind on the present to the exclusion of past and future thoughts.
Meditation is actually easier than your might imagine. Start meditation by paying attention to your breathing. There is no right or wrong way of meditation. Just practice it, and do it with persistence and perseverance. Go to my web page MeditationTechniques to learn how to meditate to enhance your health. Meditation makes you younger and healthier for longer.

Miracle of Mind Power

Believe in the miracle of mind power. Use your mind to control your toxic body, but let your mind be supervised by your soul so that you can live your life as if everything is a miracle.

As If Everything Is A Miracle: This 125-page book is about the wisdom in living as if everything is a miracle, just as Albert Einstein once said: "There are only two ways to live your life. One is to live as if nothing is a miracle. The other is to live as if everything is a miracle."

This 125-page book is about the wisdom to rethink your mind, renew your body, and reconnect your soul to realign your being for total wellness and well-being to live stress-free as if everything is a miracle. In this day and age, living in different phases of life is challenging. For one thing, in this world of technology and information, many of us are addicted to speed, which seems like a prerequisite for success in career and in many others facets of life. As a result, stress is unduly created, which may lead to toxic actions, reactions, thoughts and emotions.

Consciously and subconsciously we have created for ourselves a world in which our bodies, our minds, and souls have become toxic and we live as if nothing is a miracle. To do just the opposite—living as if everything is a miracle—we have to renew the mind, renew the body, and reconnect the soul, and realign the being so that we know who we really are, instead of who we "think" we are.

Believe in yourself: believe that you can be a better, happier, and healthier you. Believe that you can be a centenarian, if you choose to. The only hurdle is stress in contemporary living. Learn how to overcome your stress by letting go your ego-self. No Ego No Stress!

The Bad, the Good, and the Wise

In this world, you will find the bad, the good, and the wise, but it may not be easy to distinguish them or separate one from the others. The explanation is that we all are inherently good, bad, and wise. Over the years, through our uniquely different life experiences, we may have become more of one and less of the others. No matter what, we all have the bad, the good, and the wise in our nature; and the essence of our nature is derived from how we think.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: “The ancestor to every action in the physical world is a thought.” In other words, wisdom comes from the mind: how you think, and how you perceive and react to your thought. Wisdom is different from knowledge in that a knowledgeable person may not necessarily be wise, and by the same token a wise person does not have to be knowledgeable. Wisdom has much to do with how you interpret your own life experiences and then how you apply them to your everyday life and living. It is your profound understanding of your true self and your perception of how you are interconnected with others. In other words, true wisdom is your profound understand of who you really are, and not what you wish you were, and your perception of the interconnection between you and others. With that wisdom, you will become a better person.

To find out how to be wise in order to be good and happy, and live your life as if everything is a miracle, read my book: Be A Better andHappier You With Tao Wisdom.
