Now imagine a world where every individual was in a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. I imagine this world would have a good self esteem, and people would feel good about themselves. I imagine it would be a productive world with little time for sitting around and feeling sorry for one’s self. I imagine people would be busy pursuing their own idea of peace and excitement, with no time for envy. I imagine this world would be where people respect and support each other, and not try and tear each other down. I imagine it would be a world of respect, not just for our fellow human beings but for the entire ecosystem we live in.
This is the world I would like to live and I would like my children to grow up in, and I believe it is possible.
To achieve this we need to get to the core of health, which is arguably the mind, because it’s the mind that decides whether we eat right or not, or it’s the mind that decides where we live, what we eat, what we do and how we feel. Sure the healthy body can improve the mind, but it’s the mind that decided to get the body healthy in the first place.
At the core of the mind are our emotions and how we deal with events on a daily basis. It’s our emotions that react more quickly than conscious thought, although our emotions can be trained to heel over time. It’s this holding onto emotions or excess of emotions that have been proven to create adverse physical reactions.
So how do we release our emotions without being socially rejected, like punching someone in the face or over zealously exuding schadenfreude in a crowd? This is precisely the journey I am on, to cultivate healthy emotions, and this could well have a healthy domino effect spreading to all aspects of this biosphere we share.
Now all we have to do is agree on ‘how to’ cultivate healthy emotions, and this is where the discussion begins, here and now.
So punk. You gotta ask yourself, how do you feel? Right here, right now.
