Contemplating Immunity So That All friends Are Healthy And Safe

Written by Gede Prama

Following the inner dialogue at the Ashram yesterday, where the message was like this: “Viruses don’t kill. It’s a weak immune system that makes viruses kill”.  Here are a series of reflections so that friends can maintain their immunity.  Of course, so that all close friends can be healthy and safe.

In terms of thoughts, distance yourself from all forms of interaction that burn panic and fear.  It is better to know a little but be safe, than to know a lot but doomed.  Among the little knowledge that saves the most is immunity.  Stop leaking too much energy through negative and critical thoughts. Just flow with everything as it is.

In terms of energy, when the sun rises nature is sharing energy.  Take natural energy in moderation.  Not only through sunbathing to get vitamin D, but also by blending with the joys of nature.  Sit in the park or enjoy yourself in the outdoors where the sun is still up.  See the beautiful sides of nature.  Grounding with deep gratitude.

When the sun goes down, take extra care of yourself.  Most importantly, don’t let bad memories produce bad thoughts.  Or even another bad feeling.  When bad thoughts roll up against each other with bad feelings, there are many dangers that can occur.  The practical step, when a bad memory comes, just be aware of its nature that comes and goes.  It is a reflection of the neurological circle in the brain.

In terms of nutrition, many sites that pursue cancer have the same conclusion.  Humans nowadays eat many food but are lack of nutrients.  For that reason, prioritize only eating vegetables and fruits that come directly from nature.  Don’t forget to chew it many times.  Keep the variety as varied as possible.  In blue regions of the world such as Okinawa is found, where people eat more than 100 varieties of vegetables (fruits) a year.

In terms of interaction, epigenetics expert Dr.  Kenneth Pelletier was right in concluding that friends are also medicine.  Growing up with friends who inspire optimism.  Stay away politely from friends who spread panic.  Especially on social media, staying away from people who spread panic prevents us from the possibility of experiencing energy leaks.

In terms of technology, have the heroic courage to put technology like mobile phone back down as a servant.  Do not allow them to stand arrogantly above as master.  Practically, when needed please use it.  When you don’t need it, just turn it off.  Specify certain hours to turn on your mobile phone, at other times turn off your mobile phone.  Especially for children.

If you have to play on social media, only interact with people you want to grow up with.  Never comment negatively on other people, it will only invite more attacks.  If they doesn’t match you, or even more, if you get hurt, dare to press the “unfriend” or “block” button.  Remember, while taking care of yourself, you are also protecting other people from getting into trouble with the police.

From a mental point of view, in this day and age the most needed mental medicine is happiness.  For the general public, laughter, jokes, watching funny things are a source of happiness.  Singing with children is another resource of happiness.  Doing things that please the soul (gardening, listening to music, serving othera) is another option.  The deepest happiness is peace.

The new discipline of psychoneuroimmunology concludes clearly and unequivocally that there is a very strong relationship between a happy mood and immunity.  Thus, life may go up and down, but keep a heart that is always happy.  At least stay away from getting angry and complaining.  It leaks a lot of energy.

From a spiritual point of view, no spiritual remedy is more convincing than combining balance with connectedness.  Be balanced in everything.  Then use deep gratitude as a bridge to experience connectedness.  To reiterate the previous message, connectedness is the deepest root of healing and peace.
