How do the Health Obstructions can be prevented?
a positive expression of our personality,
means real source of happiness lies in our own nature and
attitude, and not
within those health
obstructions that in fact are considered to be the
impediments in achieving the health and happiness. If our innate nature is "emotionally
balanced", we shall be happy, regardless of our external conditions, but if
we are emotionally imbalanced we shall never gain the health and happiness, no matter how much we try to change our external circumstances.
Although happiness is inherent,
still many of us remain unhappy for most of the time, since our "behavioral negativities" (-like shame, guilt, arrogance, envy, jealousy,
greed etc.) block our happiness.
Persistent accrual of "behavioral negativities" at
the core of our psyche, over a long period of time makes
us "emotionally imbalanced" and triggers a sequel of various stress-related
illnesses, symptoms or numerous ill-health conditions.
While dealing with behavioral negativities, most of us respond in
either of the three ways.
1)We react them,
2)Repress them, or
3)we try to run away from
Repressing negativities is the harsh way of handling them!
we push them to the back of our mind, hold back them up, and ignore them. The problem with repression is that those negative feelings really never go
away! They build up and fester deep inside -over accumulation- causing
numerous disorders like hypertension or anxiety and eventually drive
us towards such a behavior that either we don't like or we can't
control! Many people drink or smoke at this stage.
OR, we vent our feelings.
We often tend to relieve the pressure of accumulated negative feelings through strenuous physical actions, by exploding
emotions (-getting violent), losing
the temper (-uncontrolled anger), or engaging in destructive behavior
(-abusing or bullying). We may feel relieved for a while, but
subsequent feelings of guilt or grief erase the "gain". And, often expressing
inner feelings in this way is unpleasant to others.
OR, we then try to run away from that unwanted situation and avoid
confronting life situations that
we come across. (-escapism tendencies)
We turn the TV on, try to concentrate a book, go to the movies, smoke, play music, drink, etc.
We resort to anything to get away from that unsettling feeling which
is accumulated at the core of our psyche, but it doesn't work...it's still debilitating
the mind...although it obscures for a while, yet it may reoccur in
different forms over the period of time, like causing an ailment
ill-health condition, -like learning disability or ADHD- even when we are not aware of it.
It is needless to reiterate that, overcoming "Behavioral
negativities" implies restoration of
"happiness" and to bring the happiness one must be able to achieve
the 'peace of mind' first, however 'peace of mind' is a result of satisfaction and satisfaction is
a widely relative term, which varies with person to person! Level of satisfaction
in every individual is linked to his (or her) expectations.
We often expect that things should always be happen as per our
wish and when we find that things do not correspond to what we
were expecting, we do not able to adjust ourselves to what life
has brought and become unhappy, obviously the greatest source of unhappiness comes from inside.
-in fact- is an art of learning of, how to derive contentment
within our limited available resources,
whilst try for the better than that on our hand. When we feel contented
on the inside, we can do our work better and take more pride in
it. Apart, we can face life situations with patience.
This is because, our tolerance capacity is directly proportional
to our contentment and patience. Obviously, our tolerance capacity
and patience are primarily responsible
in determining our 'level of satisfaction'. This means that, satisfaction
depends upon the tolerance capacity and patience in a person. The more the person is sensitive the lesser will be his tolerance
capacity, patience and the 'level of satisfaction' and vice-versa.
The tolerance capacity and patience in a person depend upon
the innate nature and and mental make-up (-attitudes and personality
traits) of that person. Accumulated behavioral negativities at the
core of psyche (-such as fears and doubts, shame, guilt, ups and downs in life, previous
sad and gloomy memorable incidents/accidents of
life etc.) play important role in determining the level of
tolerance capacity and patience in a person.
