Secrets of Five Elements and our Body
Just as our bodies are made up of trillions of independent cells, we all are the cells with which this universal organism is made up of. Like our cells, each of us humans has an individual existence but none of us is free enough to live independently of the whole. In fact everything which exists in the external universe has its counterpart in the living being's own personal internal universe. In short, every cosmic force is represented in us in altered form. The flow of nutrients into the body cells and byproducts of life (Waste) out of the body cells also characterizes the continuous flow of nutrients and waste into and out of human beings.
Purification of the Physical Body is accomplished in 5 different ways: By earth, water, fire, air and ether…
EARTH is that solid state of matter whose characteristic attribute is stability, fixity or rigidity.
WATER is the liquid state of matter whose characteristic attribute is flux / without stability.
FIRE is the power that can convert a substance from solid to liquid to Gas or vice versa - Increasing or decreasing the substance’s relative order. It is a form without substance. Its characteristic attribute is transformation.
AIR is the gaseous state of matter. Its characteristic attribute is mobility and dynamism. It is existence without form.
ETHER is the field from which everything is manifested and into which everything returns - the space in which events occur and has no physical existence. It exists only as the space that separates the matter.
Each element has its specific role in maintaining the health of an individual. Each element has great power to purify each other and maintain the equilibrium of vital forces in our body.
I would like to highlight the cleansing effect of these five elements. For Purification, each element requires in the first place its own element and then the element appropriate to it in the scale of ascent.
Water purifies earth, while fire purifies both water and earth, air purifies all four.
For all things made of earth, although they are cleansed by water, yet if earth or some kind of powder could be used, being their own substance they would be more effectively cleansed. In the absence of water, earth can serve to clean the palms of the hands and soles of the feet by striking them against it and this absorbs all impurities. “It has been proven scientifically that pure earth is a good disinfectant".
Water is always purified when mixed with a greater quality of its own element. The scientists also clean it of all impurities by the help of fire, its nearer element. Water, once warmed and again cooled, is considered to be sufficiently pure to be given to sick people (i.e. distilled water) since It removes all impurities.
Fire is purified by fire; this can be proven by the fact that dim fire is kindled by a brighter and more intense fire as well as by its nearer element, the air, which draws it up by its power. All appertaining attributes to earth, water and fire are kept fresh and pure by the air, in the absence of which they decay.
The purifier of air is air. For, no matter how bad the air in a closed room may be, but as soon as the windows are opened the fresh air at once purifies it. Air is also purified by its nearer element, the ether that is as vast as space. Naturally the air of the town is less pure than that of the country. All the properties of earth, water, fire and air have their existence and expansion and purification in the ether.
It needs to be understood clearly that all the five elements which make up our body are required for its existence as well. The body becomes ill if one or two out of the five elements are not given to the body according to its requirement. What we call disease is only the imbalance of these elements from their required proportion.
NATURE CURE & YOGA (LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST) If you are wondering where or what could provide all the elements that are required to have healthy life, here is the SECRET … Secret to health, happiness and life is NATURAL LIVING & YOGA ORNATURAL CURE.
NATUROPATHY or NATURE CURE is the name given to the system of treatment in which the SEVEN elements are used to restore thehealth of a patient. It is the science or Art of living. You might be wondering about the two extra elements that popped up here? They are not extra, they are the whole.
First element is GOD (CONSCIOUSNESS)! God is love and God's love is unconditional. Acknowledging and reflecting it back throughConstructive thinking, Right mental attitude, Prayer & meditation is life and Health.
What is the second element? The second element that is new here is food. Hope you remember what was mentioned in the beginning - “that food is only a transformation of all the five elements”. Natural food is a consolidation of these elements and it is through food we receive all the five elements.
Actually speaking food includes space, oxygen, heat, water, solid and all nutrients (see balanced food). Our environment is food to us.
Then comes the five great elements (Panchamahabhutas) Ether, Air, Fire, Water & Earth. Treatment by all these elements is called Nature Cure. All these natural elements have great power to purify us and also the environment around us. In Nature Cure, wewisely give these elements to the body of the patient to obtain wonderful results. The term 'wisely' is used since appropriate elements are to be used in the scale of ascent for purification of the body.
YOGA is life. Yoga helps to live life naturally. Purpose of Yoga is to increase the purity. Yoga enhances the life processes (Respiration, Nutrition, Excretion, Reproduction & Repair and Growth). YOGA is an effective stress buster. When stress disconnects, yoga reconnects. Yoga improves our awareness, sharpens our focus and increases our energy. It is a very natural, safe, and effective means to get rid of our daily stress before it accumulates and becomes harmful to us.
The term ‘YOGA’ really means UNION. It is the real union of body, mind, emotions, environment and nature. YOGA allows you to experience the real meaning of life. Regular practice of Yoga brings us in harmony with our environment and ourselves.
Physical aspects of Yoga, helps to improve our strength, flexibility and balance.
Breathing aspect of yoga helps the natural rhythm of breath for perfect purification of body, mind & emotion.
The relaxation techniques of Yoga helps us to relax during activity and conversely increase our awareness during rest or when we are still.
Thus, NATURAL LIVING & YOGA helps us to live life to the fullest. Life means JOY, LOVE, ENTHUSISM, ENERGY, FOCUS, CLARITY, FREEDOM - All these we seek in life is hidden in the SECRET of NATURE CURE.
