Self-assessment of mental content
Our mental state determines the quality of life we have.
As we are
As humans we have a clear desire for immortality, as evidenced by the way we look after our appearance... all that is seen. And that's not bad, although it's not enough for us to live longer or better....
When we live as we do not want to live, we survive, wanting to change the world, without seeing that perhaps it is our life that needs a change.
We do not take into account everything "that which is not seen" and has repercussions on our general state of health: constant tension, self-constraint, thoughts that do not cease, harmful emotions, reactivity to everything that is not as we want it to be... etc. Our mental state determines the quality of life we have, so it is very important to take care of this aspect of ourselves to stay healthy and stay away from the disease. Our cells can't take that much impact. We begin to have symptoms here and there, which is the way the body sends us its warnings, that we usually don't attend...
The care of the body depends on the mind, on how we interpret life, on how we decide to live it. If most of the time we have negative states, both from our thoughts and emotions, we are attacking the body. The mind generates every moment of experience based on what we place in it: thoughts, emotions, actions and words.
What are you thinking now?
What are you feeling?
What words did you just say?
What did you do a moment ago?
When we're healthy, we don't think about illness.
But when we have health, it's time to keep it.
When an illness arrives, it shakes and awakens enormously, changing the perspective from which we look at life, although we can do the same while we are healthy... by our own decision.
