It’s amazing how our mind, body and heart pull us in different directions….
Our heart feels the pain but our mind asks us to move on…. Our body feels the pain but the mind says, I don’t feel anything….
When I go for my physiotherapy sessions , I notice how different people are suffering from various pains. Some aren’t able to move their arm all the way, some can’t move their neck…but that’s not the main point…… The main point is that when the instructor asks them “Do you feel a pain at this point, this looks sore.” They say, “No, I don’t feel anything!”….
As we all neglect our bodies and don’t take care of our health, pain becomes an integral part of our life. It becomes difficult to disconnect the body from the pain. You know it’s there yet you don’t feel how much, how often and how to deal with it?
There is a hindi saying, “Pehle kaya, phir saya, phir maya”…which means ..”First body, second partner/family, third wealth.”….however only a small percentage of people follow this priority order.
The synchronization between mind, body and heart is so difficult to establish that our entire life can be spent in trying to achieve it.
I think there should be courses that teach people how to maintain your internal thought balance, when your heart and mind pull you in different directions.
Meditation is probably a key to achieving this….
Can’t write more right now…. Stuff to do 🙂 …Will write more later!
