Holistic Viewpoint on Vegetarianism

Origin of “Life” on earth needed only 3 essential components – sunlight, minerals of earth and water. Life appears to have begun in water few billion years ago (Propelled by a Supreme Entity we may call – God / Nature) – first in the form of single cell bacteria, thriving by consuming dissolved minerals of water. Concurrently or later, plant life also began on earth in the form of Lichen (Algae) – propelled by the same supreme entity – by combining minerals and transforming it into plants by using water as the main element for ingesting food, and using sun light as the source of energy for the process.

Evolution of life progressed with time, to higher forms from the lower, both in water and on earth. On careful observation we can broadly find two main categories of life on earth – animals that can move on their own from their place of birth to another location in search food for survival – and the plants which stay where they are born and draw food from the minerals of earth with the help of water, with no capability to move to another location. This resulted in the plants becoming the source food for the animals – as plants cannot run and escape. Read the rest of this entry

Drugs Make You Sicker!

You may have been consuming drugs for health – but getting sickly more and more?  Did you ever think why?  Drugs don’t cure! Do you know that?  They only relieve or control..! Medicines alone help cure!  Actually Body & Mind can completely cure themselves with the right kind of help.  Do you know the actual difference between a drug and a medicine? Contrary to the normal belief that they are synonyms (same) – they are actually antonyms (opposite).  Drugs take away control of your body & mind from you! Medicines reverse this and restore the control back to you!

Let me elaborately clarify here how it is so …

Drug: A drug is a chemical substance that takes control of your body or mind depending on its own inherent nature.  For example – when you take a sleeping pill, it puts you to sleep no matter how much you want to be awake! It rules over your body & mind. You can repeat this exercise many times – and you will experience the same every time.

It does not stop there! Subsequently when you want to sleep, it will make your body ask for the pill again. As you start yielding to its demand, it will keep asking progressively for more and more pills for the same amount of sleep while reducing the quality of sleep!  You will finally end up in a state that – unless you have many pills each time – you simply cannot have even normal sleep – which is so natural to all living creatures. By now you have become totally a slave to that pill. Pill is the lord & master! This state is called drug dependence.  Your life will not be under your control – but the drug.

Anatomy & Physiology of Pain

Life is all about “Survival”.  No matter what you do – it is always for the purpose of momentary survival –or- to enhance future potential for survival.

Primary cause of pain is enforcement. This can be internally self-imposed, or externally imposed by others. An enforced compression (blow) – or- enforced expansion (pull) on any body part can cause pain. Similarly on the mind too!  If a capable person is given lesser position of responsibility – it amounts to enforced compression and thus the pain. Similarly if an incapable person is given heavy responsibility – if amounts to enforced expansion and thus the pain again.

Pleasure is pro-survival.  Pain is contra-survival.

Hence all our conscious actions are directed towards obtaining pleasure and avoiding pain. But our sub-conscious instincts drive us and misdirect us towards pain – as a result of confusion – while actually seeking pleasure.

Pain is inevitable in life – as life is dynamic. But sufferance is optional. Read the rest of this entry
