Stay Healthy and Forever Young

Written by Gede Prama

Such great economic growth does not seem to make people healthier. In economically super-rich countries can be found, the death rate due to excess sugar continues to increase. The suicide rate and divorce rate are also high. The consumption of sleeping pills per capita, as a barometer of the difficulty of people sleeping, is actually higher in super-rich countries. In a growing country there are not many differences. Here and there, there are people who look beautiful on the outside, but very anxious inside. In a village where the population is not too wealthy has its own secret, even though the cost of divorce fines has tripled, the divorce rate continues to rise. Like presenting us a homework, how to balance economic wealth with a wealth of harmony.

Energy source inside

People who combine biology, psychology and spirituality understand. The essence of healthy life and youth is energy. Economic wealth steals the wealth of harmony, because humans only focus on physical energy. Though besides physical energy there is also mental energy (ability to solve problems), there is emotional energy (longing to love), and spiritual energy from which help humans to be connected with the energy center inside. The old assumption that the more money you have, the better life will be, starting from the false belief that humans only need physical energy. As a result, many people everywhere are seen tired, anxious, nervous, and easily burnt by anger. Some even have problems with critical disease and some have committed suicide.

When trees wait for the morning sun and animals looking for food, their energy sources are only from the outside. Humans have a second energy source, namely inside. Failure to find this inner energy source is what makes many humans look beautiful on the outside, but very anxious inside. The economic growth complete with its own excessive competition to make ourselves always look richer than the others, it turns out it has automatically spurred humans to get closer to the outer source of energy, as well as getting farther away from the inner energy source. In super-rich countries it has been open transparently, the rich people are not only anxious, some of them even end their lives by suicide. Of course their main reason is not because of shortcomings, but because of their own complexity.

This is a clear invitation to invite people to connect with their inner energy source. In the old Indian tradition, there is a very beautiful word that is called “Shakti” (the life energy). And the peak of all shakti is life that is fully in harmony. In order to get there, all forms of barriers in your inner journey should be cleaned. At the same time, learn to develop spiritual qualities as early as possible. In this sophisticated era, the dangerous barrier that obstructs ourselves to connect with our center of energy is the increase in stress and the declining quality of our sleep. Both are born from the same uterus, namely complexity. In fact, the complexity is guided by excessive desire to always look better than others.

That is why all luminous souls in this age, begin the journey away from complexity and approaching more to simplicity. Not only simple in terms of material assets, but also simple in spiritual attainment. Not only dare to say enough on economic wealth, but also dare to say enough on excessive hunger so that life always grows in harmony. It takes incredible courage to get here. On the path of meditation, this can be achieved by always being connected with present moment awareness. In summary, the past has passed, the future has not yet arrived. The only time that people can be happy and peaceful is only at this present moment.

Feeling of well-being

Here lies the abundance of inner spiritual energy that are limitless. The theory is simple but the path to get there is not easy. Especially because modern humans have been made very complicated by the old belief that happiness and peace only exist in the future. As a result, almost all humans are chasing the future. The end is predictable, more and more humans become very tired. Philosopher Franz Kafka has long written: “The art of life is the art to stop”. It means stop chasing into the future. And learn to feel well in the present. Strangely, once someone feels well-off, he/she immediately feels rich inside. At the same time begin to connect with the center of energy.

If we assumed our inner self as an energy restaurant, the main menu that can stop all hunger and restless fatigue is the deep sense of well-being. As meditational step, learnt to unite with whatever happens at the present. When eating learn to blend with the food. When at work, learn to merge with the work. When praying, learn to unite with the prayer. Like writers who are married to their words, similar to painters who embrace with colors, like children who are so united with their toys, that is how everyday life should be lived.

Therefore, children are rarely feeling tired and sick because they are neatly connected with the current energy center. A sincere mind that means you can be friends with the joy of the present, that is the source of children’s abundance energy. At the same time it is also a sign that someone is starting to connect with the inner energy center. Anyone who works and constructs using this energy, not only does the creativity abound, they can also create anything in a very easy way. Without much force, without much effort, suddenly life has reached the peak of a very beautiful achievement called a deep sense of well-being.

While restless souls grow in a historical time that divides time into three parts (then, now, later), beautiful souls who are already affluently growing in the ultimate time only knows the now. Therefore, in English today it is called the present. It is the most beautiful gift of life that can be given to mankind. In the language of an old manuscript, you don’t need a goal. You are the destination. Once you arrive here, you are connected to the inner energy center. There are two signs that shows you have arrived, one that your life becomes more stable and flexible at the same time. Stable because they are no longer tossed around by excessive desire. At the same time, it is limber and flexible when interacting with life.

As a result, not only is there very little energy leaked out, but also, he/she has an abundance of energy inside. Especially because he/she is continuously connected to the energy center that never runs dry. The siteeducateinspirechange.orgwrites, scientists found that when someone’s quality of consciousness is amazing, the brain produces biophotons that make a person emit halos around the head. It shows not only that the person was connected to the energy center inside, but also became a source of energy for the surrounding environment. At this point, you can balance the wealth of economies with a wealth of harmony. Not only does the disease disappear, you can also grow healthy and stay forever young.
