Make yourself stress proof

  • THE world is made up of two categories of people: those who are stressed and those who are not. Stressful people are those who desire to control life. They like to mould life in the way they wish it to be. They are focused only on themselves. Those who have no stress are those who accept what life offers them without complaints. Their focus is about what they can do for others.
    We are merely a bio-machine as long as we believe we are mind and body. The purpose of human life is to transcend the mind and ascend to a higher state of consciousness. In that state we are truly in the divinity that we descended from. Until we reach that state of unity with what we truly are, we are in turmoil. Stress or tension can be identified as this turmoil, this confusion between our true nature and what we pretend, struggle and strive to become.

        The reasons for stress in one person does not necessarily cause stress in another. Someone said that the reverse of ‘stressed’ reads as ‘desserts’! Nowadays, talking about stress and offering solutions that work temporarily at best is a huge business.
        Rather than fixing what is wrong within, people try fighting or dissolving stress by manipulating the field of outside circumstances. How long can you run? From what will you run away?

        Stress becomes an inevitable part of life because we feel it is connected to the fast world outside of us. We feel there can be no life without what we term ‘stress’. The truth is, stress is just our own mind-body’s response to what happens outside of us. It is not the disturbance outside that creates trouble, tension and stress. It is the disturbance inside that does it.

        Stress can be avoided by changing yourself. You can make yourself stress-proof. This is very simple. Choose not to be affected by what happens outside you. This is not impractical. It is your conditioning that influences you to get affected by what happens to you through events that are beyond your control. Nothing is inherently good or bad except what we judge them to be.

        Drop your judgement about yourself, about the people around you and about the situations. You will get freedom from stress. You experience stress when you flow against the current, not when you flow with it. You lose yourself when you flow with the current. It helps you reach the restful mind state from which you can witness events around you without being touched by them. You really have nothing to lose by trying, except your stress! Be Blissful!

  • Millions of people are looking for a magic supplement and herb combination that will increase their health and vitality. People are ingesting Coenzyme Q, pycnogenol, magnesium, Vitamin C, Gingko, Echinacea and thousands of other products and combinations. In many cases, these supplements give a slight energy and health boost. In some cases, the body needs both healthy foods and supplements to help recover from an illness. However, for most people, much of the increased need for nutrients is due in a significant part to a high level of daily physical and/or psychological stress.

    Taking steps to relax and body and mind (in addition to getting adequate sleep) can be enormously healing and is highly recommended for those interested in healing acute or serious chronic illnesses or preventing future illnesses. Relaxation techniques can add enormous power to other holistic healing techniques. I hope that you take the time to make gradual changes which will allow deep relaxation and the healing and vitality that comes with it to become an increasing part of your life.


    Some Common Signs and Symptoms of Excess Stress
    Regularly walking, eating or working in a rushed way.
    Regularly thinking and worrying about the past or future.
    Frequent tension in the body (esp. neck, face, shoulders, back and chest, and stomach) which often goes unnoticed until one slows down, breaths deep and carefully surveys the body.
    Feeling of the "weight of the world" on your shoulders.
    Emotionally "on edge."
    Regular tiredness during the day.
    Significant need for outside stimulation to feel good (coffee, sweeteners, food, sex, TV, alcohol, money, accomplishments, etc.)
