Health is based on principles, which describe with precision the nature of things. Your acceptance of them makes your life easier because you’re not fighting what is. When you fight what is, you become a victim of self-created departure from reality. Health results from your alignment with principles and components that you can use to create. Once you know and apply them in your life, you can control the mystery by taking control of health.
Health is based on alignment with your essence, life and nature. As much as possible, make your own unique and personal connection, based on direct, personal experience of essence, life and nature. Seek experience. Search for what is true to life. Question what is widely believed, culturally popular and institutionally promoted. Examine what is historically mandated, educationally recommended, and legally imposed or enforced. Much of what you hear and read (and mindlessly repeat) is hype with weak foundation. Some of your fear-based, long-outdated superstitions need revision. Replace them with discoveries more closely aligned with life, nature and truth.
You can deliberately create health, no matter what your past, your genetics, your history or your story is. If you’re alive, you have all that you need to be healthy right now, right here, built in. If you don’t feel healthy, where are you off? What are you missing? What don’t you know? What’s in the way? What are you not yet doing?
Why do you need to look at each of the eight key parts designed by nature that I wrote about in the blog What Is Health? The reason is simple. Each part of total health is distinct and different. Each plays a unique role in total health. For total health, you have to give each one its due. Let me expand on that. Most people think of health as food and fitness. But total health is much more than just physical. Food, fitness, recovery, digestion and detoxification are the pieces of the physical part of health. All together, they only make up only 1/8th of total health.
Mastering health means you’ll look better, feel better and accomplish more. You’ll enjoy life more, think more productively and act more effectively for more consistent results. Living in alignment with nature and human nature brings you optimum enjoyment.
Let me repeat something I’ve already said. EVERYTHING affects health. When you align with all eight different parts of nature and human nature, you get total health. Each part provides one piece of the whole picture.
When you live the ultimate life of total health, you achieve three goals. They sound complicated only as long as you don’t know how simple they are to achieve. Once you know how, it’s easy. Here are the goals:
- You live your life lit up from within, fully present in all of your being, feeling whole and perfectly cared for
- You live harmoniously with all of the other creatures with whom you share this planet
- You ensure that the basic needs of all creatures are optimally met in a long term sustainable way
Each of the eight key parts of total health makes a contribution. Each has a different nature and a different function. Each part needs a different kind of attention on a regular basis. Each part goes off in a different way, and each part responds to a different kind of intervention that brings its part of healthy back to you.
