‘War On Terror’…It Forgets The Terrorist Within!!!
While a majority of our political leaders, and the media too, continue to scare the world out of us that every nook and cranny is filled with terrorists, somehow there are only a handful among them who remind the people of the terrorist within that is taking away their natural resistance to an assortment of physical, emotional and mental ailments.
In the Indian subcontinent the ancient texts clearly emphasise that negative emotions created by fear, greed, anger, lust, etc, lead to dissipation of natural strength that exists within every human being, and which has enough power to fight any disease. A decade-long uncertainty is now taking a heavy toll of human health because of the negative emotions generated by the so-called ‘war on terror’ that seems unending.
This fallout of the ‘war on terror’ is not getting the attention it deserves. Not only the soldiers fighting on different fronts but even ordinary people sitting at home have been affected by the continuing violence and uncertainty…and, yes, we also have the fear of recession looming large on the horizon.
But then history tells us that humanity has seen even worst crisis/challenges…and overcame it. So why worry? And, yes, even worrying depletes natural resistance to fight disease!!! But since we are ordinary human beings we would succumb, in some way or the other, to the depleting factors.
However, one theory is that we are now more susceptible to ill health because most of us have stopped, or heavily reduced, walking. Why walk? As the picture above, sent by a friend, shows the organs of our body have their sensory touches at the bottom of our feet. If you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains…You can see the heart nerve ending on the left foot. The belief is that the nerves connected to these organs terminate here. This is covered in great detail in acupressure studies or textbooks.
“God created our body so well that he thought of even this. He made us walk so that we will always be pressing these pressure points and thus keeping these organs activated/healthy at all times,” says the mail from my friend.
So, don’t just keep sitting in front of computers/TVs with a grumpy expression on your face…Instead, SMILE…And KEEP WALKING…!!!
