Advocating Health

Aversion is painful.

No pain, no gain is trying to express the core of the issue.

A healthy mistake is one that allows suffering without doing the harm to the self.

Pain can led to many bad habits or to many good habits.

Awareness will point out the meaning of the pain.

Exercise like meditation can produce good outcomes:  simplicity, compassion and patience.

Managing life requires many forms of exercise:  journaling, meditation, visualization, reading, writing, research, walking, talking, thinking, feeling and lots of work, play.

Going with this flow is real happiness.

Preaching non-violence led to inner peace which is another good outcome.

In this sense, pain and suffering can be a kind of aversion, when practicing good habits will produce better outcomes.

My Version Of Health,Wealth And Happiness

Sleep is my health, after years of hating it or the lack of it, it has become my number one.

Sure you can measure your wealth in terms of money, I need it and try to use it on my needed food,rent and other expenses. But my more abstract need range around job,meditation, journaling and hobbies like blogging.

Lastly, I value the good life: a combination of going for flow, the proper use of impressions and being the best I can be.

Teacher: You must breathe in your belly to calm your body. Or into your chest to warm yourself and accept your pain.

Student: how do I find balance, when do I breathe one way or the other?

T: Just breathe and ask me again when you know the answer.

Student: Will I ever know?

Why’s

Bored stiff, student learning to decide how to behave when bored.

Aversion needs to be manageable,

Whatever the anger, breaking it into smaller pieces until you can accept the feeling without doing harm.

Whenever a craving results in harm, break it down until you can accept the feeling without doing more harm.

Practice dealing with aversion until all aversion is manageable.

Then start with whatever topic brings up desire, breaking it into smaller pieces until you can accept the feeling of desire without doing harm.

Whenever a desire results in harm, break it down until you can accept the feeling without doing more harm.

Practice dealing with desire until all desire is manageable.

This practice is easier said than done, it requires a lifetime commitment.

I am a lifetime student of aversion and desire.
