As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), Health is a “State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Though we have these three dimensions, we would rather bear in mind very clearly that all these aspects are thoroughly interconnected. Orderly or disorderly condition of one or all of them may either guide to peace or chaos.
Personally, I would wish to primarily focus on mental health and follow it up with the physical and social wellbeing.
The human mind is the most mysterious marvel on earth! Life is a “surprise gift” that has been forced upon us by Nature/Cosmic Power, its birth and death over which we really have no choice. The energy that sustains Life is the same that sustains countless other beings, movements and evolution of so many celestial bodies in the Universe as a whole. Which is exactly why, every life must surely have a purpose and we might start appreciating this one-of-a-kind gift ONLY if we realise what the unique purpose of our existence is.
Many lives seem NOT to care to find such a purpose. For some, Life is apparently a “mundane flow” that offers no special excitement or mirth. Here are three tips to “trigger” a cascade of valuing the life that you presently live:
- Know where you have come from:
Understanding the beginning is a preemptive move we ought to make towards a better understanding of where we are headed. Only then would we be able to assess the strengths and limitations of our current scenario and utilize the former to our advantage while taking steps to overcome the latter. Accept whatever circumstances we are born into and then steer our lives towards a course that’s not just best for us but also makes our society a little better place to be in!
- Have a goal or target ahead:
Life is well-lived if it ends on a better note than where it had started off. One that began on a really rough terrain and left behind joyous, successful legacy reflects the perseverant struggle and the hopeful patience that the person had put up with! It’s never easy. But it’s totally worth it!
- Be assured that you are part of a huge cosmic family.
This should make you realize that you are at once Everything & Nothing! Confused? I guess it’s pretty much self-explanatory. There is so much of power within you because of this universal energy flow that courses through the essence of your being. Whatever you wish, you can. “The Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”, as Paulo Coelho famously put it. And then again, no matter what you have achieved and where you have reached, you are still just a teeny-weeny bit of this massive Universe. So think many times before donning an “armour of arrogance” that nullifies your actual worth.
Ruminate on these tips for a while and let them sink in, before we move on to more such interesting mindful discoveries in the days ahead!
