In our further the inseparability of mind and body will leave the question “if” our thoughts and feelings affect our physical health. We will come to recognize our thoughts and feelings and physical sensations, movements and functions as different expressions of our whole being. It’s never any action taken only by an isolated or “mind”, “body”. Rather whole being participates fully in every action. Our physical body is formed and controlled by our thoughts and feelings, and vice versa. These different aspects of our being are inseparable facts. Only in our minds that are able to imagine that the body and mind are separate “things.”
Once we recognize that all aspects of our being part smoothly in all actions we perform, we find evidence of this totality everywhere. This is common sense that we rely on constantly, although denied greatly in our conventional fields of medicine and the “science”. The following are some examples of how our psychology is expressed in and inseparable from our physiology.
The action we perform is always an expression of our whole body-mind and never just our “mind” or only our “body”. What happens in our mind always goes simultaneously in our body. There is a physical expression of every thought and mental-emotional every movement and sensitivity expression. Thoughts are things. Mental-emotional “dis-ease” create “disease.” Physical
Therefore, if you are experiencing physical problems “,” no it makes perfect sense to look at our mental-emotional experience of the reasons contribute? Contrary to “psychological problems” is not prudent to evaluate our physical skills, such as diet, exercise, breathing and relaxation? In addition there is no such thing as a disease that is “just physical.” On the contrary, there is no “mental illness”, whether depression, anxiety, ADHD or Alzheimer’s disease, which is carried out “only in our head.”
Chronic anxiety, depression or other mental-emotional misery is reflected in excessively tense or relaxed physical postures, facial expressions and breathing patterns. It is beneficial to learn how to balance these and to practice our body move in completely different ways than they normally move. If our physical immune (defense) system is failing, maybe we could ask others when we seem to excess defend our own actions and beliefs or the need to compulsively “right.” Or maybe our body-mind is tired of defending themselves against our unconscious habit of rehearsing threatening scenarios such as mental illness, failure, rejection, shame or violence.
Each physical and mental action can be performed deftly or clumsily. In our culture we have received virtually no training on the business use of our body-mind. Most of us are unable to even distinguish between skillful and unskillful diet, exercise, breathing and posture. Similarly few have been trained in passionately desire what is good for us and cultivate true fear of what is harmful. Few have learned to discriminate accurately between what is really beneficial and what is merely short-term pleasure. We was mentor in the use of our reason, will, imagination, emotions and beliefs? Without these essential skills how can we expect health and happiness? Where does it come from? The doctors? Medicines? Surgery? “Scientific advances”? We look outside of ourselves for healing precisely to the extent that we have not looked inside ourselves.
If we want health and happiness, we must both make our mental and physical actions intelligently and with love. Who else can eat or think for us? Each of us must perform these actions ourselves. Neither our responsibility or our awards can be given to another. These actions are inevitable our dharma, our sacred duty. They are also the most meaningful and rewarding the efforts of a lifetime. How wise and kind is our creator have performed the also the most full and happy most essential acts of life? Our physical and mental actions are portals through which love and wisdom flow Americans living with us.
