Heath is the first bliss that a person has got as a gift from God. An unhealthy person can’t enjoy his life. Being physically healthy is not enough. Our mental as well spiritual health is equally important. Rather our physical health is basically dependent on our mental health. And spiritual positive thinking is essential to maintain emotional balance and remain mentally healthy.
The characteristics of all the above dimensions of health is as follows:
Physical health:- Physical health means all the organs of the body should function normally. Pulse rate, blood pressure, body weight etc should be within the normal
Mental health:-Mental health means the absence of any psychological disease. It also means the overall development of individual personality. It even includes the well developed emotional attitude of the person. If a person is mentally healthy then only he can live a peaceful and prospers life.
Spiritual health:- Spiritual health means continues awareness of self as soul(a point of light different from the body). It means one should have minimum attachment to any object including one’s own body. It means feeling of brotherhood for all the other souls. A spiritually healthy person is constantly attached to the supreme being, who is the source of positive energy. The connection with the supreme soul(God) empowers the person such that no worldly obstacle could influence him.
If a person is spiritually healthy he possess the spiritual qualities of love, peace, joy, bliss, knowledge, purity and power. These qualities are responsible for the nourishment and empowerment of following human body system
1. Love for circulatory system
2. Peace for respiratory system
3. Joy for gastrointestinal system
4. Bliss for endocrine system.
5. Knowledge for brain and nervous system.
6. Purity for immune system and the five senses.
7. Power for muscular and skeleton system.
This shows that physical health is directly proportional to spiritual health. To increase one’s spiritual power we have to connect to the one and only source i.e. the supreme power(God). But before connecting we need to know who and what is it. And before it we have to identify with the self and what is our relation with him.
Who am I :- Usually we all think ourselves as a body, but in actual we are a soul. A soul is a point of spiritual energy. It different from the body. Actually it(we the soul) uses the body to do actions. All the pains and pleasure is experienced by the soul.
God(the supreme father):- God is also a point of spiritual energy. He
Where do God resides:- God resides in param dham. It is a place above this earth, even above stars and galaxies. The place is oval in shape and filled with red light. Here God lives with his children(the soul). The soul then according to his part in this world drama comes to earth and attain a body to play its role. Initially the soul is pure and its virtues are identical to God. But after taking rebirths the power of the soul diminishes. And when all the souls on the earth are at their lowest God comes to the earth to play his part. The part of God is to replenish all the souls.
Meditation :-Meditation means joining with God. It means curing the inner self through correct use of mental and emotional energy. As we have discussed above physical health directly depends on spiritual health. If a part of your body is diseased it means the energy of the virtue related to the part is disturbed. Hence by connecting with God who is the unlimited source of all the virtues we can increase our positive energy and thus heal the specific part or overall health of the body. For this we have first imagine our selves as soul and imagine that God who is also a soul is radiating energy and healing the specific part of the body.
Thus by taking care of our spiritual health we keep in tune our mental as well as physical health. Because energy flows from soul to the body. And increasing positive energy of the soul we are directly increasing our mental and physical positive energy and as a result mental health as well as physical health.
