Our mental health is not right. I mean the structure of our mind, the way it rests in the hands of the human culture on earth. We all, on earth, are success-oriented people.
We value success more than we value life. So, we are always in a hurry to be successful – more and more and more This mental hurry turns our life into a mental race.
Our mind always keeps running – here, there, everywhere We never sit in peace – not for a single second When mind is in a hurry, what does the body do? It, too, never sits in peace. This not only affects our mental health, but our body health as well.
Body shrinks itself and keeps its muscles contracted perennially, which ultimately turns into our body habit – the way our body becomes habituated of keeping itself.
It never stays relaxed.
It always keeps putting pressure on certain organs through its habitually contracted muscles and the corresponding postural deformities in its postural skeleton; which, in turn, affects the proper working of the organs concerned.
Mental health affects the anatomical health; which, in turn, affects the physiology of the mind-body system. Vision is the first victim to fall prey to the onslaughts of this nexus between the wronged mental health and the wronged body posture.
Now, what I did, was studying the wronged body posture in detail; and replacing it with the right one immediately corrected the vision. And once the replacement was done, the life should have gone perfectly smooth along with the corrected vision without any tendencies to fall back to the old patterns of body-behavior again.
But it was not to be so.
Mental health does play its role in deciding the tendencies the body is going to posture itself in It does so through the weapon of mental hurry at its disposal. As the patients correct their vision through posturing their body right, they do not correct their mental disposition; which again tends to spoil their posture the way it had done so in the past when the vision problem had taken root for the first time in their life.
The wronged mental health tends to wrong the healed body back to disease The mind affects the body. Now, my question is: Does the opposite not hold good too? Does the body – the pattern of posture – not affect the mind – the pattern of thought – too?
If the pattern of thought did it to the pattern of posture, the pattern of posture should do it to the pattern of thought as well The cause and effect relationship has always been a dialectical one on earth in life – this is as far as our knowledge of science, in general, goes.
Working with body is easier, faster and more concrete than working with the abstract mind is. But there remains an inertial effect that takes its time in bringing the requisite change in its counterpart – in this case, the mind. Pattern of posture can be corrected immediately, but not the pattern of thought.
It keeps on affecting the corrected posture negatively, so that it keeps tending to fall back to the wronged posture again; until the corrected posture (if it could be kept like that against all the onslaughts of the inertial effects of the wronged mental health) corrects the pattern of thought as well.
A matter of time, pursuance and patience Is there no other way out? I think there is, which I will be discussing in my next article.
