The environment within and the environment without are one-in-the-same. Life’s pretty simple really. Once we didn’t have to learn all this. It was automatic: we worked the soil with our hands, so we understood life, really understood life. But now, with our digital worlds, our isolated offices, television and Good life, good work and good health it’s all very natural. We can over filled minds we struggle to differentiate between virtual reality and make it complicated, we can make it less than intended, but if our real reality and we pay a high price for it. mission is to have a good life and make sure others do too, then it’s not My aim is to bring this simple understanding of life to the whole so complex. world.

Nature’s harmony and human happiness were considered as one. They observed that what happened outside of us, was already happening Mind within. But now, with time and technology, we have lost touch with this awareness. As our culture evolves into this current era, we suffer the separation from having worked with the land, understanding natures rhythm and a dependency Day 3 on nature for her sustenance. As we modernise, we have moved away from that harmony. V.I.P. The outer world has risen and taken precedence in our life, we look for solutions Future Vision instead of awareness. We can all benefit from a Spirit more honest and deeper approach to life. If we can re-connect with the harmony of nature, while remaining a part of the evolution of humanity, we will be able to celebrate both worlds, inner and outer harmony.

  6. 6. BALANCE Inner Peace - Stillness THE QI TO LIFE “Personal balance starts with PHYSICAL BALANCE two feet firmly planted on the earth” BUILDING RESILIENCE - FINDING BALANCE People are surprised to hear that life force comes from the earth. If we are out of balance, we block it or lose it. So, we begin with an understanding of personal energy, life force.

Directing Energy - Manifestation Try a HA Breath..... in the mornings... Drawing in, pushing aside, directing life force. [6]
  8. 8. Life Force - vitality THE QI TO LIFE If you come home from work with less energy than you came to work with, something is wrong. If you think that food is the primary source of life force, something needs to change. If you know how to hold, build and stop the loss of nature’s Qi you are very blessed. THE QI TO LIFE Manage your energy - life force - build it, store it, save it and direct it. If we translate all the teachings about management and spirituality By far, the most critical of those three is the stopping the loss of into one single topic, it would have to be the management of energy, life energy. If we cannot stop the loss then building the energy levels and force. holding the energy levels are going to be very difficult. So, this is If we are able to focus our energy we have a very great why we are going to spend significant effort on this topic in achievement because we will get things done with a the program. minimum of fuss.

So, poor breathing practices. We sit badly so our connecting to nature, your God, the universe, lungs starve, hence, we lower our blood friends, family, lovers and your bigger self are oxygen content, hence we starve the brain, the most potent way to build Qi. and bingo, we get sick.

If you are bent all out of shape, so, uncontrolled movements, fidgeting, nervous your idea of balance will be compensatory. movements, habitual actions (like bum or nose scratching) are really just ways we use to Nobel Prize winning work was done by release stored and vital energy.

Pain is something that comes vitality comes from the mind, mental loss. Low and goes, you know it will leave eventually. self-esteem, self-importance, self-indulgence, Suffering is something that you don’t know self-improvement, self-criticism. Add to this, when it will leave. So, it’s both painful and anxiety, judgement, criticism, anger, pain, debilitating because it feels like it may last emotionality, grief, uncertainty and you’ll start forever. Pain borrows energy.

We treat people and conflict movements of healers, priests, saints in with people and those we are responsible for history and holy people. with the same attitude at home or at work. To the majority their movements are Sometimes the way we treat people is Mudra spontaneous but to the educated eye, they are expressed or repressed. deliberate science called mudra (and other The key here is to see that we treat labels.). Mudra are hand, body and internal others as we treat ourselves. Although we organic positions that are believed to store, might have short term aberrations of attitude build and distribute energy. we are generally trapped in this. So, the greatest self-help program on Simple Bundha earth comes in the form of how we treat people. That’s attitude. What do you notice about people when There are four attitudes that are they lose their spirit for life, get tired, burned considered to be the finest in the land. They out or depressed? So, we can clearly say, that are: if we don’t do those things, we’ve got a good 1/ chance of not getting burned out, exhausted 2/ or depressed. In the science of yoga those 3/ things are called the Bundha, and they are 4/ designed to store more Qi. Sleep Attitude Sleep deprivation causes mood swings, Few things store more juice than depression, mistakes, emotional instability, happiness. Two people doing the same job Attitude tiredness, exhaustion, hunger, and addictions can come out of it totally different based on - so it’s important to get it right - we sleep their attitude. Anything done with resentment about 1/3 of our life ....zzzzzzzzzzzzz kills us. Whether it’s in relationship, work, The keys to great sleep are... cleaning the car, washing the cat, cutting your nails or changing the diaper. But attitude is not Sleep Sleep deprivation causes mood swings, depression, mistakes, emotion, tiredness, hunger, blood pressure problems, addictions and grumpiness. [13]

So trying to fix things it, I couldn’t believe that, after all these years of is like coating the world with leather instead of exploration and search and fear and struggle, wearing shoes.

Perspective Peace of mind comes from your perspective. Peace cannot exist in a righteous mind You may see things in the world you would love to change, this is your purpose and vision. But there is a vast difference between purpose, vision and being right. [15]

In that state your mind is nothing lacking; there is no desire, no calm and receptors are open. That state of motivation to fix, or repair, or change.
