Why we need balance
An absence of virtue is a disturbance in the natural balance of nature. Nature is pure and vices such as worry, hate, fear, jealousy, anger, greed, cruelty, self-love, instability, ignorance, and pride disturb the balanced energy of the soul. Science even tells us that when there is an energy imbalance in the body-mind, it results in a breakdown of the system, otherwise known as disease.
Disease of the body is not necessarily due to physical causes, but rather to certain disturbing moods or states of mind that interfere with an individual’s happiness. This is because the mind and its infinite energy exercises control over the mental and physical state of every human being. The mind however can either draw its energy from the intellect self, which is the energy of the soul, or from the lower layer of self and get caught in emotion. In these lower layers stress, worry or fear results in a loss of peace and serenity. This energy transports through the body’s nerves system sending a message that disturbs the balance and health of the body. Continued stress and worry create energy that eventually deprives the body of vitality.
Although the soul is our purpose for being here on earth we often usurp its importance in favor of the body and the mind. We relegate the soul to the back of the bus. But it does not feel slighted. It quietly sits back watching the body-mind act out its life. It matters not whether it gets heard in this life or the many lives hereafter. A life is a blink of time for the soul. It knows eventually it will get where it desires to go. But we do need the body and the mind to take us on this journey. They are the vehicle and the GPS. It behooves us to treat them well and attend to their good health.
