Hi I am Jonny John Liu
Today I would like to talk about health and food in relation to Self-Transformation.
I want to answer the following question - how important is it to keep the body healthy in terms of Self-Transformation?
Now first of all, having a healthy body is not necessary for Self-Transformation because even if you have a disability or a disease, Self-Transformation is still possible as long as you have the will, the intention for Self-Transformation. And it also, a disease, a disability can also be used as a catalyst for self-transformation.
But having a healthy body will also help you on the journey.
Let us understand why.
For instance let us use a classroom analogy.
In a classroom if you are tired and sleepy, then you would be spending most of your energy and focus on trying to stay awake. However if you are healthy and alert, then most of the focus can be used on learning the lesson right in front of you. Life is like a big classroom, if you lack the energy to focus what is in front of you then you would miss out on the lessons, as a result you would be less aware of what’s happening outside and inside, as a result you will develop only little knowing of the self, little Self-Transformation.
So it’s important to eat food that are nutritious which will give you energy, this will help you with focus and self-awareness. It’s also important to sleep well and get enough rest for the same reasons.
Actually from the perspective of the Universe, taking care of our physical body is of utmost importance because it’s something that we can definitely say that is ours, belongs to us, thus it is our responsibility to take care of it. Acutallyis you look around in this world what you will find is that everything in nature, including the birds, the dogs, the cats, they all know the responsibility of looking after their body.
Now that we know the importance of taking the body, where do we start?
We can begin the journey with the intention to improve the health. It can be as simple as studying about health, or incorporate exercises into your life. I won't go into the topic of health in detail because it's so broad. My goal here is simply to make you aware the importance of health, that by working with the body rather than against it, it can accelerate the journey of Self-Transformation. And it would actually be a very wise choice to begin the journey of Self-Transformation by looking at ways to improve your current physical state to develop the mentality of Self-Improvement which will help you when you take the more difficult journey within.
