Unconditional Love…

To love without any condition is to accept the other just as they are. That is to see through the person without judging them, expecting something from them, or even waiting back for something.

Anahata chakra symbolizes the consciousness of...

Anahata chakra symbolizes the consciousness of love, empathy, selflessness and devotion. On the psychic level, this center of force inspires the human being to love, be compassionate, altruistic, devoted and to accept the things that happen in a divine way. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It is your ability to treat each one as a unique creation who therefore has their own unique relationship with God and know their own soul journey.

Unconditional love.. is to recognize and accept that you do not always know what is best for everyone around you, because you just love them and know they are doing the best they can at this very moment.

This is not an emotional state. We tend to associate the word “love” with emotions, however, unconditional love is more of an attitude. You begin to feel the benefits of such an attitude and how “ freeing” and liberating it is , once you start embracing it.

It opens the way to really making the best use of your energy and time for your own spiritual maturation.

There are many forms by which we can identify the attitude of unconditional love. A mother’s love to her children, children’s love to their parents, a partner’s love to his/her other partner..etc.  Through the attitudes of these different examples, we can see the power of unconditional love.

Some experts have said that we need four qualities in order to have a true, authentic unconditional love: friendliness or loving kindness, compassion, joy , and calmness. Through that, you will be able to see the right key for the right person and maintain your peace and calmness.

When we see happy people, cultivating a friendly attitude toward them will help prevent feelings of jealousy and envy. When we encounter those who are suffering, we should compassionately do what we can to help—for our own sake as much as for the person who is suffering.

In terms of chakras ( energy centers) in the body, judgments and expectations from  are solar plexus perceptions ( 3rd chakra), and the more the attention is held in these perceptions, the less likely one  feels  the heart chakra perceptions of what love really is.

While we often think that we are always surrounded by love, we are actually the ones that make the decision to put our attention on it, or to notice it, or to feel it. We are the ones who must decide for ourselves whether to love or not, and this decision must come as an aspect of free will, in order for it to make sense as a step in our evolution as humans. We all are capable of infinite acceptance to develop the attitude of unconditional love. When a mother stays the whole night next to her sick child, she does it with no conditions, when you decide to share your life with someone; you don’t tell them “I will marry you if…”, After all, there are many people we can love, without wanting to be their partner.

When the communication is clear in both directions, the love flows and is clearly expressed in both directions. The appreciation for the other continues to grow.

“Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay”, Dalai Lama.

Fantastic source of Vitamin D

Image

Do you need more vitamin D but dislike taking pills? Try eating more mushrooms. New research from a team led by Michael Holick, M.D., Ph.D., a leading expert on vitamin D, found that taking daily doses of mushroom extract for 12 weeks raised blood levels of “D” as high as daily supplements. The research team used an extract of dried white button mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus) and recruited 30 adults whose vitamin D levels were low to assess its efficacy. The participants were randomized into three groups and instructed to take either supplements providing 2,000 IU of vitamin D3, 2000 IU of vitamin D2, or 2000 IU of the mushroom powder containing vitamin D2. The team reported that 25 of the 30 participants completed the 12-week study, and that their serum vitamin D levels increased gradually until they all leveled off at about seven weeks and remained at that level for the next five weeks. The study was reported in April 2013 at the joint American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Experimental Biology meeting in Boston. Dr. Holick stated that the results show that eating mushrooms that have been exposed to ultraviolet light and contain vitamin D2 “can improve the vitamin D status of healthy adults.”

Yoga – the mental side.

This article was written by Danielle Gault. I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with all of you.

Thirty years ago when the healing arts was beginning to blossom in

people’s minds, I was introduced to Yoga, Jung and Reflexology.  These three topics formed the basis of who I am today and what I do and provided the structures that have helped keep me balanced mentally, socially, and physically.

This blog covers the topic One – Yoga – the mental side.

ImageThe Yoga Chakras showed me how to reduce inner tension through self-understanding.  The Yoga Chakra system defines energy in terms wheels of consciousness. The 3 lower wheels represent our ‘human’ side, which is more of a contractive nature, while the 3 upper wheels represent our ‘spiritual’ or being side, which is more of an expansive nature.  The pivotal wheel or center of consciousness is at the heart area. When this centre is maturely developed, it helps connect us to the upper 3 expansive centers of meaning, purpose, and love as well as assists us in the development of the 3 lower chakras which can harbour greed, martyrdom, competitiveness, and aloofness. When all centers are maturely developed they contribute toward evolving, supporting, and mentoring self and others. Staying healthy using Yoga philosophy means to use supportive actions to serve humanity. If you had to chose one of the chakras that you feel requires more attention and development, which one would it be?

On a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is totally not me and 10 is totally me, how would you rate the following in terms of what’s happening in your life right now?

  1. Upper 3 Chakras relating to meaning, purpose and love, I rate as ____
  2. Heart Center Chakra (pivotal point where upper and lower meet), I rate how connected with compassion I feel towards others right now as ____
  3. Lower 3 Chakras relating to feelings of competitiveness, martyrdom, and greed in my life right now, I would rate as ____

The first step to making change in our lives is to first become aware of our unconscious patterns.  From there, we can make more conscious choices.

Natural Healing Arts

Icon from Nuvola icon theme for KDE 3.x.

In the natural healing arts, we don’t necessarily think ‘conditions’ — we think imbalances so the idea is to get the Mental/Vata, Social/Pitta, and/or Physical/Kapha system back in balance. If one side of this 3-sided triangle: mental, social, physical, is weakened, it weakens the whole system.

As human beings, we are always negotiating with our health – we live on a physical planet and we are physical entities so it is next to impossible to not be negotiating with some part of our lifestyle throughout our lives. The goal is to stay as healthy as we can for the whole of our lives but, for me, not so healthy that we can’t find a way to check out. We do next an exit strategy too at some point at the end of the road.

Life is the push and pull of opposites – pleasure and pain — too much of a good thing that pleasures us can turn into pain. Moderation is the key as the saying goes and we strive to stay somewhere in the middle between pleasure and pain as we negotiate with our habits in life and strive to keep those habits within a margin of error so that we can maintain and continue at maximum performance.
