“SALVATION LIES WITHIN” – Shawshank Redemption

salvation_lies_within.jpg

I find the above dialogue from the movie to be thought provoking. It is quite human to find faults in others and be unhappy about the situations we cannot always control. While we may not be able to influence other’s actions or thoughts but what we can certainly do is work on ourselves. Cliche, right? I am only talking about creating a soothing environment within so that there is better acceptability for others and the outside world. ‘Inner Happy Hours’ is what we should seek!

How do we do it?

Take out just 10 minutes in a day when you can be with yourself. For those 10 minutes you could close your eyes and focus on your breath, or go to a park or just observe things around from your balcony…remember to do things that you like the most, being closer to nature would increase the benefits. As you get into the practice, now try observing everything with unwavering attention. For eg. if you like sitting in a park, observe a flower with complete details viz its colour, shape, smell. Observe it with total awareness, if you get other thoughts don’t worry, observe those thoughts as well but once again bring you awareness to the practice. Idea is to slow down and reduce the noise, so that you can listen to inner voice. Start with 10 minutes a day, I am sure you would develop better connect with yourself.

Start Today, set-up an alarm in your phone; it is your time to meet the most important person – ‘Inner CEO’.

De-stress yourself…Simple yet effective.

A Retreat for Lessons in Life!

Really Liked the thoughts

“I can think, I can wait, I can fast”- Hermanne Hesse, Siddhartha

These lines were my takeaway from a book called Siddhartha (a biography of Gautam Buddha) which I happened to read right before going to the Hith Yoga retreat. Little realizing that I will end up practicing it all the three days of this enlightening adventure. Thinking, waiting and fasting were the three main lessons I learned from this yoga journey that was also a journey within.

Only an aware mind is capable of observing and controlling the thoughts and ‘think’ about them objectively. For this we practiced ‘maun’ on day two. We were not allowed to talk to one another or to use social media. It was seemingly the calmest day of my life. The same day we trekked up to a waterfall point, a waterfall famous for double rainbow. It was an experience of…

Work on your Anger…

A monk decides to meditate alone, away from his monastery. He takes his boat out to the middle of the lake, moors it there, closes his eyes and begins his meditation.

After a few hours of undisturbed silence, he suddenly feels the bump of another boat colliding with his own. With his eyes still closed, he senses his anger rising, and by the time he opens his eyes, he is ready to scream at the boatman who dared disturb his meditation.

But when he opens his eyes, he sees it’s an empty boat that had probably got untethered and floated to the middle of the lake.
At that moment, the monk achieves self-realization, and understands that the anger is within him; it merely needs the bump of an external object to provoke it out of him.

From then on, whenever he comes across someone who irritates him or provokes him to anger, he reminds himself, “The other person is merely an empty boat. The anger is within me.”

Some useful timeless tips

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next city; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER :Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

We all need to live life to its fullest each day, Worry about nothing, pray about everything!!!

START EATING FRUITS

Please share this post as much as possible.

Eating Fruit on Empty Stomach

This will open your eyes ! Read to the end and then send it on to all on your e-list. I  just  did !

Dr Stephen Mak treats terminal ill cancer patients by an “un-orthodox” way and many patients recovered.

Before he used solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients,  he believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his article below.

It is one of the strategies to heal cancer.
As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%.

Cancer patients shouldn’t die. The cure for cancer is already found – its in  the way we eat fruits.

It is whether you believe it or not.

I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.

EATING FRUIT
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.

It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and  *when*  to eat the fruits.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS!

FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

If you eat fruits on empty stomach,  it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.

Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.

The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so due to the bread taken before the fruit.

In the meantime the whole meal  of bread & fruit  rots and ferments and turns to acid.

The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

So please eat your fruits on an   *empty  stomach*   or before your meals !

You have heard people complaining : 

Every time I eat watermelon I burp,  when I eat durian my stomach bloats up,  when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc.. etc..

Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.

The fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat !

Greying hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes all these will *NOT*  happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.

If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the  * SECRET *  of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice – drink only * fresh*  fruit juice,  NOT  from the cans, packs  or bottles.

Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up.

Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get the nutrients at all.

You only get its taste.
Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.

If you should drink the fresh fruit  juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse or detoxify  your body.

Just eat fruits and drink fresh  fruit juice throughout
the 3 days.

And you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look !
