04 Yin and Yang
The Way of Yin and Yang
The secret to enjoy life.
Hated by who you love,
and loved by who you hate.
There are those who attack, and those who defend.
Angered even when you do your best,
but complimented for which you did nothing.
At times it's better to take a detour
than going straight ahead.
Change is the only thing constant.
Joy arrives after sadness.
Life is about not fearing death.
We, the organism, naturally try to maintain equilibrium - the balance between Yin and Yang in every layer of our being. Fore example: A person who catches cold (Yin) will raise (Yang) the body temperature. The heat (Yang) will cause thirst (dryness - Yang). Water (moisture -Yin) helps to quench the thirst. (Cooling -Yin)
We can maintain health/balance by using energy work (meditation, prayer) and a little help from the spirit of plants.
The Oriental Medicine is there to assist what the body does naturally. The focus is not so much on removing the symptoms, but to create the flow so that the body’s own immune system can remove undesirable elements, by using energy work (acupuncture, massage, qigong) and herbs.
In essence Spiritual Medicine is no different. The purpose in life is to realize what some call Tao, Union, Love, Divine Self… The name does not matter so much but one thing, to live in joy, which is our birthright.
We can achieve this by using energy work (meditation, prayer) and a little help from the spirit of plants.
