STATE OF MIND- STATE OF WAR, ALERT AND PEACE

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

As per medical Sciences – The Mind controls all the organs, tissues and cells. State of mind determines the state of preparedness of the body cells, tissues and organs. We normally say ‘Secured people are healthier than insecure people’. What does it mean?

Let’s try to define 3 states of Security:

  • State of Peace
  • State of Alert
  • State of War

The Insecure mind remains most of the time in ‘State of War’ or ‘State of Alert’. In both the situations, all the cells have to function all the time. People with secure mind instruct the body to be in State of Peace.

We all know that most of the development happens during the match of  ‘State of Peace’ vs ‘State of War’.  Similarly Human Body development also happens better for Secured people against Insecure people.

We can carry forward this logic further to 4 human evils

  • Anger
  • Arrogance
  • Greed
  • Deceit

Anger means Mind declared war. All the body cells must act.  It consumes highest amount of energy.  Arrogance means I need to be bigger than the others which implies that I have to be in constant state of Alert. State of Alert gives me Protection against defeat of my Ego.  Arrogance can also lead to State of War to protect and defeat any external war-threat to ego.

Greed means I need to exploit all the opportunities of getting ‘something for me’ which tantamount to  ’State of Alert’.  It can also declare ‘State of War’ when someone finds opportunity visible in front of his or eyes.

‘Deceit’ means I need to protect myself all the time against my lies or the situation created by me. It means ‘state of alert’ all the time.   At the time of starting the Deceit action it is like State of war or when someone discovers your deceit, it declares State of war.

When Dharma says control (A)nger, (A)rrogance, (G)reed (AAG:Fire) and (D)eceit, it means bring your body to ‘STATE OF PEACE’ first.  State of peace is a must before any development can take place.  The same analogy can be taken for better physical health of human kind.  The body cells will be more relaxed in State of peace thus resulting in less stretched Facial expressions as well less stretched body postures.  That’s why we experience lot more Energy emanating from Highly secured people because the Sum total of the Body energy is now available for outward expressions as well as internal growth of the Human body and mind.

Dharma further says two elements Truth and Perseverance are the key enablers to keep the body in State of Peace. Both the elements keep human body anchored to the State of Peace.

Now even if we are aware of these facts – What is the path of moving from Current situation to Better situation? For this, Learning and awareness are two tools by which one can progress towards  State of peace.

Process of learning and self awareness starts from:

  • Acknowledgement and acceptance
  • Humility
  • Swadhya (Reading, questioning, dialogue and absorption)
  • Meditation (Contemplation)

These 4 elements are the key drivers which enable to start the journey towards State of Peace and State of better health and State of happier life.

Self Observation:

  1. I believe my IPU’s are more engaged in future elements rather than past elements.
  2. In recent past it started looking at CURRENT as well.
