A small thought on…. Meditation and Awareness

Meditation can help us come into touch with some of our inborn enlightened qualities like Unconditional Love, Faith, Strength to endure hardships, Peace of Mind and Forgiveness….

When we get to have – through meditation – a glimpse of our True Being, we feel a deep Peace of Mind. We become more aware of the twittering birds around us, as well as of the smell of the flowers that we cannot see because they are not near us…. all our senses seem to be awakened, and the Nature around us speaks a language we are able to understand – and yet we have never learned… a language of true Happiness, of Gratitude for the blessings all around us, a language of True Love.

Unfortunately, many times life brings us apart from our natural unity with the Universal Consciousness. Trying to always be present in the moment and remembering that we are not alone, is a way to tap into this Universal Awareness. How lovely it is to go walking in the park… seeing the green and listening to the twittering birds… or how lovely it is to walk along the seashore, only listening to the sound of Nature…. Let us be grateful for the Beauty of Nature that surrounds us: the plants, the animals, the flowers….

Peace of Mind, Joy and Feeling satisfied of what we have all give us a glimpse of Enlightenment or Fulfillment in life. Everyday life makes us forget who we truly are. Always remember that we are also Light and Pure Awareness. We need to experience this joy and peace through our True Selves, just like we need to breathe….. Being the Light we are is all that matters, because this is our unique Self.

“As I have said, I have only one purpose: to make man free, to urge him towards freedom, to help him to break away from all limitations, for that alone will give him eternal happiness, will give him the unconditioned realisation of the self.”

Dr Edward Bach’s explanation of the real cause and cure of disease

Dr. Edward Bach’s “medical-philosophy” is contained in his booklet Heal Thyself, first published in 1931 in Great Britain. In his book, Bach gives great importance to the individual’s spirituality, and being first of all a physician, he relates Body and Spirit, that is disease with the individual’s evolution. According to him, disease is nothing but a conflict between Soul and personality, as to say that we fall ill whenever we don’t go toward the right direction, toward our true evolution, free from social and psychological conditions.

Bach, like Epicurus, was convinced that true disease is the one that hinders happiness. He thought that happiness equals wellness, because he was convinced that a happy man – that is a man whose true Self is not in conflict with his mind – does not suffer of any disease. To confirm the latter, Philip M Chancellor in his book on the Bach’s Remedies, reported case studies in which as soon as the patient was feeling happier, more hopeful and less depressed, his body was responding faster to the remedies, and the patient was healed.

As Dr Edward Bach himself wrote, he hoped that his booklet Heal Thyself  would be “a guide to those who suffer to seek within themselves the real origin of their maladies, so that they may assist themselves in their own healing”. As a matter of fact, loss of one’s individuality (which is the result of our interference with another person) is for Bach one of the main causes of disease, because the meaning of life of each individual is to acquire experience and understanding, in order to single out and then make one’s personal evolution perfect.
