There are two parts to well being – Understanding the physical part of your existence and the Energy part of your existence. The former entails handling the structure of the physical, which is easy has quick short term results but long term implications as well. When the long term living is part of short term answers then life can be a series of band aids. On the other hand, when short term tinkering with the physical for handling the immediate is backed by a long term method of handling the energy part of your existence, well being – at least in your experience is enhanced.
Most of our medicine and methods are created with an eye at the macro. The body and the existence, however happens at the micro. As Dr. Deepak Chopra says “There is no noun in the existence. Only verbs. Even a body is a verb, not a noun.” It takes quite a leap of understanding to know that body is a flow and not a stock concept.
In view of that, this talk by Dr. Chopra is very interesting and enlightening.
