How Emotions Affect Our Health

How Emotions Affect Our Health

Every cell in our body is intelligent to think and act. We have *60 trillion* cells in our body and our health depends a lot on the harmonic balance and cohesion of the cells with each other.

In the movie _Eat, Pray, Love_, Julia Roberts visits a wise man in Bali, and he advises her not to try too hard to meditate. In fact, he suggests that meditation is nothing but smiling and the line that is a kicker, is “Smile with your liver.”

If you believe that this is just a metaphor, lets look at the other end of the spectrum to prove just how crucial this is.

Let us say you hold a negative emotion towards somebody, something or some event in your life. Each time you think of that your whole body re-lives the emotional upheaval of that association.

Your mind doesn’t have a mind of its own, and doesn’t know if the event is happening in real time or it is being replayed. So it produces the same stress hormones each time. Each and every cell of your body starts feeling the same emotion, of let us say “hatred” towards that event, person or experience all over again.

The body is not at ease. This is a state where the condition of dis-ease sets in.

If you continue to live in that state, your cells are now getting conditioned to live in the same state.
The Upanishads talk about *”Yatha Pinde Tatha Brahmande”* …as is the atom so is the universe.

The health of a person depends on how well all the systems of the body and the *60 trillion cells* play the melody of harmony together.

When the cells are living in a state of hatred, they soon start exhibiting that with each other and killing healthy cells in the body. This leads to many forms of auto immune disease.

Like Rumi said, “you are not a drop in the ocean, you are an ocean in every drop”.

Be careful of your thoughts, your feelings and your emotions.

*Forgive people, not because they deserve it, but because you need it. Stay happy, stay healthy.* Have a wonderful healthy life ahead filled with the abundance of good health and happiness.

She then leant towards him and whispered in his ear…

“Hand over all your cash, cards and mobile phone to me , else I will shout loudly and tell everybody that you are harassing and misbehaving with me”

Manager stared blankly at her 🙄

He took out a paper and a pen from his bag and wrote ” I am sorry, I can not hear or speak… Please write on this paper whatever you want to say”

Everyday Krishna would visit the garden and say to all the plants, “I love you”.

Everyday Krishna would visit the garden and say to all the
plants, “I love you”.

The plants were very happy and responded saying “Krishna,
we love You too”.

One day Krishna rushed quickly into the garden very

He went to the bamboo plant and the bamboo plant asked,
“Krishna, what´s wrong?”

Krishna said “I have something to ask you, but it is very

The bamboo said “Tell me: if I can, I will give it to you”.

So Krishna said “I need your life. I need to cut you”.

The bamboo thought for a while and then said “You don´t
have any other choice. You don’t have any other way ?”

Krishna said, “No, no other way”.

And it said “OK” and gave himself up.

So Krishna cut the bamboo n made holes in it, and each
time, he carved the holes, the bamboo was crying in pain …

Krishna made a beautiful flute out of it n this flute was with
him all the time.

24 hours a day, it was with Krishna. Even the Gopis were
jealous of the flute.

They said, “Look, Krishna is our Lord, but yet we get to
spend only some time with him.

He wakes up with you, He sleeps with you, all the time you
are with him”.

Gopis asked the bamboo, “Tell us your secret. What secret
do you have, that the Lord treasures you so much ?”

And the bamboo said “The secret is that, i gave myself up,
and he did whatever was right for me, in the process i had
to undergo a lot of pain.

And the Lord does whatever he wants with me, whenever he wants with me and however he wants with me. I have just
become His instrument”.

So this is complete surrender: where God can do whatever
He wants with you, whenever He wants, as He wants.

Trust Him completely and have faith in Him and Always Know.. that you are in His Hands …
Nothing can go wrong……

Krishna, Arjuna and the beggar (story)

Krishna, Arjuna and the beggar (story)

Krishna and Arjuna were taking a stroll when they came across a Brahmin who was begging. Arjuna out of pity gave him a pouch full of gold coins. The Brahmin was overjoyed and set off for home with a romantic song in his heart and dreamy eyes. On the way, a robber looted him.

So, on the following day, he was out begging again. Arjuna was surprised to see him. On hearing his story, Arjuna felt pity again and gave him a valuable gem and made sure that the man hid it in his pocket while going home. The Brahmin hid it in an old mud pot that was lying unused for a long time in his house.

His wife had gone out to fetch water from the river. On her way back she fell down and her pot of water broke. So she went home and quietly picked up the old mud pot and went to fetch water. The Brahmin was fast asleep. The moment she lowered the pot into the river to fill it, the gem fell out. She went home totally unaware of the loss she had just caused.

The Brahmin cursed his destiny when he realised what had happened. The next day, he was back to begging again. Isn’t it true that we may give something to another but we cannot change another’s destiny?

But God can! Read on.

When Krishna and Arjuna heard the tearful story of the poor Brahmin, Krishna quietly gave two paisa to the Brahmin. Arjuna exclaimed, “Oh Deenabandhu! I could not redeem him of his poverty even by giving him so many gold coins and the precious gem. What difference will two paisa make? Perhaps it is his destiny that he shall always be a beggar!”

Krishna just smiled. The Brahmin too was baffled with the paltriness of Krishna’s donation, especially in contrast with Arjuna’s largesse.

On the way home he saw that a fisherman had just caught a fish, which was gasping for life. He felt pity for the poor creature and thought to himself, “These two paisa will not be enough to buy me even a meal. So, let me buy the fish and save its life.”

The Brahmin bought the fish for two paisa and immediately put it into his begging bowl and poured water into it. He set off towards the river to release the fish. He then noticed that the fish spat out something. It was the same precious gem that Arjuna had given him that he had hid in the mud pot!

The Brahmin was overjoyed. In his ecstasy he exclaimed, “I found it, I found it…” Coincidentally the robber who had looted him of his pouch full of gold coins was sitting just there. He thought the Brahmin had recognised him and was shouting, “I found him, I found him…” Fearing that he would be taken to the king’s court and punished, he begged the Brahmin to pardon him and also returned the gold coins.

Arjuna was astounded! He said, “Krishna, what I could not achieve by giving so much, You have achieved by giving so little! What is this mystery?”

Krishna smiled His beautiful, bewitching smile and said, “Both times when you gave to him, he thought only of his personal comforts and the betterment of his life. When I gave him, he thought about the woes of another living creature. Truly speaking, when someone shows sympathy and helps someone, he is doing My work. When he is doing My work, how can I not do his?”

Change Your Destiny.

I feel like reading this again and again & again ….

👍 An Inspiring Story

A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :

Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.

The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.

The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.

**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.

At the end he wrote: Oh God! It was such bad year !!

When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad & lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on side of her husband’s writing.

When the writer saw this paper, he found his name written on it with following lines :

**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain….

**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace…..

**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator…..

**The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability……

At the end she wrote:

This year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well !!!
