Without a regimen in life, we tend to become inert physically and gradually, mentally, and, in the long run,we become static in life i.e. we don’t channelize all the energy we gain by food and other natural resources,in a constructive way . That same energy, which,when channelized, can open up new avenues for us in life and keep us dynamic, gets blocked, and, it affects our physical and mental health. This energy can be physical, intellectual or mental, or, all of them . An obstruction in the flow of any of these three energies can create a respective dis-rhythm in the psycho-somatic level. The intellect will be dulled; emotional imbalance can set in; mental disturbances can storm into one’s life….if one does not use all the gifts given by God to man. It’s like this…a machine,which runs on electricity, will be in good condition as long as it runs, and, as long as it is maintained, with regular servicing like oiling, etc. If it is not used for sometime, it may get rusted and may become useless after a period of time.
Hence the need for making one’s regimen in life…can be physical exercises , yoga, meditation, Sudarshan Kriya, sports,fine arts, etc. In fact, all the traditional customs such as making rangoli early in the morning, going to the temple, praying together as a family in the morning and in the evening, doing puja,or, following some ritual, are not an end in themselves , but, are the means to this end…..of disciplining and tuning the body, mind, intellect and emotions to collectively aid man in living life to its full potential and live it Nature’s Way. The optimum alignment of mind, body and breath leads to good physical , mental and emotional health, sharp intellect, unclouded memory and a fulfilling life…. a blessing to oneself and to all around.
Man is not an island in himself…he is a social being…and his life is incomplete without sharing all he has with his family, kith and kin, friends, society, and the world , at large. Of course, he benefits if he lives his life in seclusion. But, ultimately, he will not be content…for, what is that life,which is of no use to others? Hence . there is an innate, instinctive urge in man to share… and such sharing between men enriches the lives of all concerned…to bring happiness, positivity, bliss, peace and contentment wherever they go!
Even Nature manifests a regimen …her seasons coming in rotation, the blooming , withering and again blooming of flowers as per the seasons, the sequence of the low and the high times on the Sea, the sunrise and the sunset…all these phenomena of Nature are a lesson to man…to maintain a regimen in life…one that will benefit oneself and others as well!
