The Third Impediment to Mastering Your Life

The first two are – quiet the monkey mind and stop overdoing everything in your life. Slow down, take a breath and smell the roses.

The Third Impediment to Mastering Your Life

Extreme physical and mental weakness will impair your ability to concentrate. Ill health will not prohibit the learning, but it will definitely impact it. Therefore we should be very careful to reduce stress, eat healthy, exercise, rest and play. A balanced and healthy life is a sure way to mastering it. But what if illness should strike? Pull back to your center, close your eyes and breathe. The gentle soothing movement of your breath will do much to nourish your body and your mind. The body-mind needs oxygen and nourishing blood flow to support health. Doing yoga poses and breathing will push fresh blood to your organs and throughout your body.
 So eat healthy, do yoga and breathe deep! Honor your health. It is the most important thing in your life. And remember that perfect health is a perfect balance of the energy known as your body, your mind and your soul.

You are a tri-part being. It would be a mistake to try and correct one part without addressing the issue as a whole; body, mind and soul.

“When health is absent wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless, and reason is powerless.” Herophilies, 300 B.C.
