To ride bicycle one has to learn to pedal and steer at the same time. Only pedaling or only steering will not enable a person to ride a bicycle. Both have to be done simultaneously. Same way we should know how to work with energy and consciousness to run our life well balanced.
Energy means a thermodynamic quantity equivalent to the capacity of a physical system to do work. A good knowledge of the rise and falls of energy ‘prana’ enable us to judge the quality of our life health and personality as well.
First thing is to realize that we are energy! Without energy the body is of no use. Prana is the primary basic energy within the subtle body; life force and it circulates throughout the body.
Dealing with energy!!! How we feel is an indication of what is happening with our energy. Energy ebbs and flows within us, so noticing what causes these ebbs and flows allows us to make conscious choices in our life from a healthy perspective.
Every moment we get energy and we lose energy. When the energy we receive is greater than the energy we lose, we feel alert happy and enthusiastic. When the energy we lose is greater than the energy we receive we feel dull, lazy and sick. A preponderance of energy indicates a mental state conducive to higher values in life.
The quantity and quality of energy and the way in which it flows through our nerves determine ones state of mind and emotions. When we are happy, serene, aware, loving and compassionate is an indication of preponderance of vital force. When we are vain, domineering, jealous, envious, hateful, restless, arrogant, guilty all shows a fall in vital force.
When our minds are lethargic, confused, sad easily angered for no justifiable cause, deluded and unable to comprehend, vulnerable to sensual impulses; it is to be understood that we have lack of life force.
Furthermore everything that acts on the body use up energy. Using nerve energy in excess of normal production, results in enervation and toxemia. A good knowledge of the rise and falls of energy level enable us to judge the quality of our own personality and health as well.
If most of the time the characteristic of gearing up energy is there we can rest assured that our personality has to become mostly pure and we have made good progress.
Dealing with Consciousness!!! Consciousness is an alert cognitive state in which you are aware of yourself and situation. It is the immaterial part of a person; the actuating cause of an individual life. It is the supreme soul that which is responsible for one's thoughts and feelings and ego; the base faculty of reason the drive momentum behind our life.
To deal with consciousness we should know how we are connected with consciousness. How the consciousness affects on nature to manifest as you. It is not present at some point in the brain, some point of your heart but it is all over the body. Each cell is surrounded by a layer of consciousness, a cloud of energy. When this cloud of energy, or consciousness, is vital, happy, pure, and free of stresses, it can penetrate into the DNA cells and clear those cells revitalize the cells.
There is so much deep knowledge about consciousness; we should sometimes meditate and go much deeper into it. We will understand more. The more you understand, the more wonder-struck we are. This happens during life style modification course the eating habits, breathing practices and meditation. You will realize that the cells do not exist by them. They are made to exist and live by consciousness, by the mind, by Being, which is basic in creation.
Nature treats You: One seed sprouts and the seed has the whole structure of how the plant will develop – what should be hard, what is soft, and what should be the inside. The entire structure of a plant is present in every seed. In the same way, the DNA contained in every cell of our body contains the whole program of our being. Affecting a change at the level of the seed can affect a change in the whole stem, the whole flower, the entirety of the plant. Affecting a change at the level of our being, the very core of our consciousness, means we have to get back to the source, the sap. We have to get back to the seed the source. That source is consciousness, path is nature and conveyance is our own mind.
Information can be acquired by reading books or browsing the Internet. You can open a book on life style modification such as how to lose weight, how to regain health, how to prepare for an interview, how to develop personality and so on. But the awareness or connection cannot be established with consciousness through perception or intellect it is possible only through planning, implementation and practice and experience.
Consciousness is the base, the cause of energy the cosmic force. Mind is the connecting link between you and consciousness. See, every cell in your body is emitting some energy and the totality of all that energy within and around you is the mind. Every cell in our body has the capacity to produces energy. Totality of the energy produced by the cells of our body shapes and manifest as mind power.
The brain is an amazing three-pound 1400cc organ that controls all functions of the body, interprets information from the outside world, and embodies the essence acting as antenna of the mind and soul. Apart from food and physical well being, our ability to connect with consciousness is profoundly affected by the predominance sattwa and Rajas and proper blending of three Gunas qualities to balance ego and act as bridge between mind and intellect and mental (Anthakarana) balance.
In the modern world fortunately/unfortunately we have access to an abundance of everything especially food far more than we actually need. Nevertheless, our diet is frequently impoverished. Many of the food we eat are high in saturated fat, sugar, salt and flavorings, and lacking in fiber, vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
