The health and wholeness of the body is according to the wholeness of breathing apparatus and its ability to oxygenate and render pure blood. The effectiveness of the breathing apparatus enables vitality for the body. The vital body permeates every part of the dense physical body. It is the background, the true substance of the physical body. The nature of force that animates the vital body and according to the quality of the activity of that force, there can be aliveness or sluggishness of most important parts regulated by the centers that lie behind the glandular system.
Time has come to correlate health with the behavioural patterns of the humans. If the patterns of behaviour are irregular, the force that animates the body tends to be irregular. Consequently, the vital body is put to frequent fluctuations in its vibration. Consistent and constant disturbance to the vital aspect of the body due to ignorant activity of man is the basic stimulator of ill health according to Wisdom Science. The breathing apparatus gets affected. The frequent breathing troubles, disturbed blood pressures and heartbeats are the cause of many sicknesses today.
Irregular habits of eating, restless working, inadequate sleeps when persist over years; one is bound to disturb one’s health fabric. In addition to this, if one entertains malignant attitudes such as competition, jealousy, pride, prejudice, one would cause deeper dents into health. Fear, ambition, suspicion, doubt contribute further to hinder the free-flowing life force in oneself.
Life force is a flow in the human system. Any activity that frequently disturbs the free-flowing energy would impact health. It should be understood that man cannot behave whichever way he likes and yet have good health. The activity of awareness and the activity of life should move hand-in-hand in friendliness. For this reason, the seers of ancient times suggested harmonious living through equating food, work and rest. When an equilateral triangle in relation to the three is established, health can be restored. Ill-health can be mitigated. Ill-health in turn disturbs the activity; therefore, activity should not disturb the health. The two can either promote each other or destroy each other. One should think of qualitative food and qualitative work besides adequate sleep hours.
The physicians and the healers could do well to educate this dimension to all those who come up with sicknesses. Remedial measures of activity to restore health should be part of “Prescription”. The general understanding “I eat medicines if I am sick” should be eliminated. Medicines should not be seen as the only means to cure. Physicians and healers should not be seen as magical workers. The sick too have their responsibility. They should be educated.
