【Saturday Online Global Group Practice】 Facing Life
How do we nourish our body and mind with Nature’s nutrients?
As humans, we need to connect with Nature regularly to nourish ourselves with her nutrients.
Once I went to a park with a few of my disciples. When I sat down on the lawn, a fellow disciple came to me and said,“Master, let me give you a cushion as the ground is dirty.” Later on, when we were at the beach, the same disciple said, “Master, here is the cushion, the sand is not clean.” I asked. “How are the soil and sand dirty?”
In fact, if you look at donkeys, horses, cows and other work animals, they usually roll on the ground when tired. When they roll, they move their backs close to the earth, and in the process of flipping back and forth, the spinal muscles relax, and they receive the energy from the earth, sand and water.
Is this what humans need?
As humans, our natural response is to sit down in a natural environment with soil, sand or water when we are tired. Some people, especially children, may even roll around on the grass to play. Children are more in tune with their spiritual self than adults. As they roll, diseases are actually being expelled from their bodies. Children also love to step on the sand and soak their feet in sea water. All these are instinctive actions that they take to gain good health. As the children grow older, however, they become more conscious of their self-image and identity, and they never dare to do so again.
So how do we get onto the “Path of good health” offered by Nature?
I welcome all of you to join me in the discussion this Saturday, on how we can “Face Life”.
May all of you be healthier and happier!
