Psycho Spiritual Well-Being through Winter
Psycho Spiritual Well-Being through Winter.
We all seek to have health and happiness.
We probably do appreciate that the most important Health and Happiness to have is beyond the physical and material, being more a matter of the mind â€“ Psychological Health and Happiness!
The underlying cause of the distressing and destroying of Real Psychological Health and Happiness is the psychological states or Greed, Anger and Ignorance (LOBHA, DOSA, MOHA).
The wisdom of the Buddha points out that Greed, Anger and Ignorance as a Psychological Virus, are the fundamental cause all our stress, suffering and unhappiness.
Sometimes this might be due to our own Greed, Anger or Ignorance or sometimes the result of the Greed, Anger and Ignorance of others.
It is important even imperative, to know and name these three psychological states as they so easily inflict us and then infect us; even becoming us!
This is all part of illusion and delusion that these three states create for our mind.
For our mind-heart to be free from these three psychological virus states (the GAI Virus), we can put practice into developing the opposite of these. The Psychological anti-virus is that of Generosity, Kindness and Wisdom (GKW Anti-virus).
The more we engage from, live from and be from these wholesome psycho-spiritual states, the less the mind is caught into their opposite.
However there is the potent and powerful, Psychological and Spiritual Medicine that the Buddhaâ€™s Wisdom offers as the whole Path of Practice towards Real Health and Happiness.
This is the Practice of Morality (SILA), Meditation (SAMADHI) and Wisdom (PANNA).
Here Morality or wholesome living works against Greed; the calm and clarity of Meditation works against Anger; the insight and understanding of Wisdom, works against Ignorance.
If Real Happiness and True Peace is what we value, then we need to notice, note and know when our mind is affected by the virus of Greed, Anger or Ignorance and apply the good medicine of Generosity, Kindness and Wisdom by practicing Morality, Meditation and Wisdom Development.
Keep making and taking the medicine for Real Health and Happiness.
