Through the devoted practice of understanding the unique chemistry of one's life and its relationship to this world a profound state of health and self knowing can occur. Assistance and proper guidance is tremendously helpful for those who want a long term change to the forces that restrict genuine health. In order to discover this quality of “health” one should devote themselves to understanding the influences of “actions” that are presently being made within the body and mind.
Purpose. The essence of the ayurveda approach is instilling meaning to life. Ayurveda (science of life) views an individual as one who holds unique purposes which must be brought forth to instill peace. This understanding relies on personal health for these purposes to be expressed. Through my travels I see great vitality amongst people living with purpose which in return bestows wellbeing into their life and society. Living for truth is understood as a pursuit of dharma which directly supports one’s place in time. Dharma can be seen as honest actions that make life continue towards greatness. This approach relies on performance of responsibilities that uphold relationships. To understand this concept meditate on the following:
- what are my personal responsibilities for this current place and time in life?
- what are my talents and how are they being expressed to the world?
- what current actions are supporting my environment and society?
