“It’s interesting that the lowest common denominator of fear, greed, and social control decreed to be best for the people is often in direct contradiction to the natural universal laws of logic and reason.” — Suzanna Aaring 2013
It’s kind of funny really. From the clothes we wear to the roof over our heads, everything is constructed out of the blueprint of nature. Yet our ego seems to view its manipulation with regards to our food as an advancement on Nature; and we miss the enduring quality, abundance, and priceless value of the regular, unaltered and ordinary. What makes pre-established templates complete and perfect? Nature produces the most efficient pattern for each blueprint for sustainability with the whole of our environment, making it possible for cycles to occur seamlessly in complete synchronicity.
In this way the human body depends on the entire scale of planetary evolution – it’s the fruit of the tree. Evolution is a process that follows a pre-established plan with the human body as the final result, the completion of the cycle as a whole. True evolution of a species is always for the case of survival. If the mutation is correct and in the case of evolution it is, the species survives and even thrives.
While the body is the result of evolution of plant and animal species, the mind is the result of social development. In man’s unceasing thought-based evolution focused on manipulation of nature, the result has more often the weakening of species. An imagination that makes as its sole reference, the social constructs from which it develops, without deference to the authority of nature’s pre-established structure cannot, by definition, match reality.
We would take well to realize that when we are tampering perfection, invention that doesn’t fit the whole is disruptive and destructive to the cyclical processes which optimize its potential (DNA cloning and nano manipulation of pre-established molecules, is one example. The lack of sufficient land allotment for humane husbandry of farm animals, is another.). Our mind’s potential is optimized in exact proportion to it’s harmony with the body. Only social constructs which match the pre-established pattern or blueprint of nature, can provide a basis for the mind to be stabilized by the body.
We cannot determine the best action to take with integrity if we don’t understand intuitively, emotionally, and mentally the limits our natural environment can bare (especially at the rate a very small percentage of us have been using up most of the world’s non-renewable resources – having children out of social expectation is one example. Another is the dispute over water between Egypt and Ethiopia’s burgeoning population, yet exploding growth has gone out of control with respect to limits of natural environment, leading to the threat of war over manipulation of the Nile.) We need to consider whether we’re not better served by taking care of our own internal integrity, and developing and implementing green solutions, so that ALL children can fulfill their potential, and not procreate than we can properly take care of.
The degree to which our mind is based on the reality of the perfection and completeness of nature, determines how well we can survive as a species. Unless development of the mind fits pre-established blueprints, history shows even religion has fantastically assumed the mental construct that the Creator goes against creation, and orthodox academic propound justified greed instead of championing reason (building oil wells in fragile environments, etc. ad nauseum). There are, of course, precise scientific laws to cultural unity based on self-responsibility for perpetuity of the world at its highest level, and at the speed we’re approaching global limits…
“Precision that achieves fast kinesthetic balance under conditions of the physiologic pH balance gives the rapid homeostatic equilibrium that sustains a tenacious link unifying mind, body, and emotions all day long.”
Human beings have a built in survival mechanism… the sensation of pleasure and pain. Culture emerges from our historical experiments to seek ways to improve our enjoyment of life. In many ways such as art, music, and dance we have succeeded, while in other ways we have failed dismally.
That pain and discomfort restricts not only the movement of our body, but of our mind as well, this has been well known since antiquity. We now know when pain goes into the body, the acidic condition results in crystalized deposit of lactic acid which anesthetize nerve endings. The subsequent numbness in our nervous system ultimately impacts the corresponding area of the cerebral cortex reducing our capacity for free thought. This knowledge has unfortunately been used for everything from brain washing to the repression of slaves in an attempt to secure a more pleasant life.
The “no pain (for some), no gain (for others) way of thinking has affected every aspect of our lives. For example, do you live in a region where a synthetic time change occurs twice a year? In the autumn the clocks ‘fall’ back by one hour, and in the spring time jump forward by one hour. Our internal circadian rhythms however are not inclined to follow this pattern. When we lose that hour of time as the clocks ‘spring’ forward, we lose an hour of sleep, the deepest and most important hour of sleep. We cannot catch up… simply going to bed earlier doesn’t mean our body is going to want to sleep. This perpetual disruption year after year of our internal clock by manipulation of our external clocks tells it’s tale on our faces, in our health and vitality, in our creativity and productivity, and through the accelerated aging of our bodies.
The pivotal question of our times is how can we thrive as a species despite external pressures that limit our freedom? Many of our problems are so ingrained in our society they seem insurmountable. Yet within the deepest imbalances, lies the key to the solution… enjoyment. We have no control over external events, in fact, the only thing we have control over is our own mind. However the well-being of our mind is limited by the health of our body. Seek to find enjoyment through health and well being, and free both body and mind.
