Perfect Health
Living according to our dosha keeps our mind and body at a balanced state that brings
health and peace to our being. The absence of this balance is brought about by being in an
environment that does not suit our particular dosha. Life has its strains and pressures that have us
venturing towards the extreme traits of our dosha. However, keeping ourselves under these
conditions for prolonged periods stretches our dosha, which then drains our energies. The energy
drain is what manifests as an illness since our bodies lack energy supply that gives it vitality
(Chopra, 2001). Self-awareness allows people to identify situations that feed and drain their
energy and subsequently adjust themselves to ensure balance.
People have different gifts, tolerance levels, and reactions to certain situations and
environments according to their dosha. However, expectations from various sources within
themselves and the environment have them pushing beyond what their nature allows. When the
expectations set are unattained or push them beyond their natural abilities, they become
judgmental towards themselves. Awareness of one’s dosha and its natural tendencies keeps one
aware of what they can handle, what they are good at, and what they can’t stand (Chopra, 2001).
When one is aware of their strengths and limits, it is easy to accept what they can’t handle or
accept into their lives without being judgmental.
Thich Nhat Hanh encourages people to be more forgiving and understanding of
themselves. When a strenuous event happens, the last thing the body and mind need is judgment,
which further forces us on the prevailing situation. The author proposes being the joyful observer
of the situation through meditation and returning to a place of peace without the necessary need
to evaluate the source of stress. Letting things flow in and out of us allows us to accept our
human emotional nature and the negative feelings that come with it (Hahn, n.d.). However, it
also allows us to recognize the occurrence and let the restlessness flow through unhindered.
Meditation releases us to the flow of life’s energy through us without holding on, which leads us
to balance of body and mind.

My Neighbor’s Corn
Naren Kini
There was once a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he
won the award for the best corn. One year a newspaper reporter
interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew
it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seeds with his
“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors
when they are entering in competition with yours each year?” the
reporter asked.
“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Don’t you know? The wind picks up pollen
from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors
grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of
my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow
good corn.”
So it is with our lives. Those who want to live meaningfully and well
must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured
by the lives it touches. The quality of response and joy depends on the
quality of thoughts and love we share and spread.
And those who choose to be joyful must help others find happiness, for
the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.
