Health

  • “Disease and medicine are two sides of a duality and both come from outside.
    Health is Real inner nature.
    Medicine just removes the disease.”

 

  • “Health is ordinary. Extra-ordinary people are found in hospitals. The even more so in mental asylums. Extra-ordinariness is a disease.”

 

  • “Need cannot be the basis of any relationship, including a leader-follower relationship. Any relationship cannot be based on need, because when you need something from somebody then you will not let that person free. The basis of relationship has to be one’s own fullness. “I am so complete in myself that I am not begging something from you, I have come here to give” –this is what love is. Two people who are perfectly alright in there aloneness, when they get together, that is a healthy and beautiful relationship. They do not need each other, yet they are with each other.
    “We do not need each other, yet we are with each other, in our freedom” — that is a healthy relationship.”

 

  • “Innocence is not merely health. Innocence is the inability to fall sick.
    What you normally call as health is just the gap between two periods of sicknesses. You are healthy and you are moving towards sickness. It is dualistic. Innocence is the absence of that which can fall sick. Innocence is the inability to fall sick. Even if you want, you cannot fall sick — that is innocence. “

 

  • “Healthy relationship is possible only to a healthy mind.”

 

  • “To try to live rightly without caring for the right livelihood is like trying to live healthily without giving up unhealthy food.”

 

  • “To scratch an itch is pleasure. Pleasure arises from disease.
    To not to have an itch is joy. Joy is health.”

 

  • “Mental health is such a stranger to us. We start feeling uneasy in our rare moments of simple innocence.”

 

  • “We all carry loads of rubbish, most without knowing. To know this enormous junk is healthy. Dirt gathers twenty-four hours, must be known twenty-four hours.”

 

  • “Joy is to retain one’s health even in middle of all kinds of diseases and diseased.”

 

  • “Those who are free of the world, are free to relate with the world in a healthy way.
    And those who are dominated by the world, have no real relationship with the world.”

 

  • “When your internal health is good, then you radiate Love. When the being is healthy, and strong, it radiates Love.”

 

  • “Compassion can arise only when first of all you have a deep sense of inner rootedness and health.”

 

  • “Healthy relationship is possible only to a healthy mind.”

 

  • “Sickness can be cured only by the touch of Health.”

 

  • “What is healthy is forgotten, what is sick is remembered.”

 

  • “Retain your Health in the middle of all aches and sickness.”

 

  • In a healthy society, you do not need rules, what you need is Intelligent people. If people are intelligent then there is no need of rules. And the more rule driven a society is, the more unintelligent it is.

  • “If you can be honest with the small, the Huge has already come upon you.”

 

  • “When mind is calm and peaceful, relaxed in immersion in its own source then the mind is not aggressive, violent or ambitious towards itself. When the mind is immersed in its own source that is called “Mind’s own health”.”

 

  • “When mind is calm and peaceful, relaxed in immersion in its own source then the mind is not aggressive, violent or ambitious towards itself. When the mind is immersed in its own source that is called “Mind’s own health”.”

 

  • “The expression of your inner health is love.”

 

  • “Faith, is to be all right without a reason. Faith, is to feel secure without being dependent. Faith, is to feel healthy without checking whether you are really healthy.”

 

  • “In real completeness, there is no question of feeling anything. All feelings and thoughts arise from your center of incompleteness. In completeness, you feel or think nothing about completeness. It’s almost like health: If you are healthy, do you go about thinking that you are healthy? If you are thinking that you are sick, then you are sick. If you are thinking that you are healthy, you still are sick. You are healthy when health ceases to be something on your mind.”

 

  • “You must have the ability to be and to operate as a healthy being even in the middle of sicknesses, difficulties, and imperfections.”

 

  • “You retain your inner health in the middle of all aches and sicknesses. Let the fruits of karma be for the one who was the doer of the karma. Let the doer experience the fruits of the doing. You are neither the doer, nor are you obliged to experience and bear the results of the doing.”

 

  • “In health, everything is so extraordinary that it is ordinary. In health, there are no fragments. In health, you do not value one part of being over another part.”

 

  • “Our relationship with the mind is usually of two kinds, either the mind rules us or we rule the mind. Either the mind is our master or we are the masters of our mind. Both these relationships are not healthy. Neither of these is healthy. When the mind is ruling you, then for sure you are not aware of what is happening and you are just acting mechanically. When you are trying to rule the mind, then there is suppression and even that is not healthy.”
