How to stop the war inside
There’s an expression in the Ayurvedic philosophy called “Prajñāparādha” that I have already written about. But I wanted to bring a new perspective to it, from our modern mistake of ignorance. This sanskrit word means “war against wisdom” and what it means, truly I want to say, is the fight we keep having with inflammation. When we have this state chronically inside of us, we are in war against our own intelligence, against nature and therefore against logic.
It boils down to this : we are not an isolated species in this universe even if our Ego minds tends to classify us as such. So therefore, we do interact with everything that is going on around us. It’s interesting when you agree on that, to simply look around oneself and see how we keep trying to justify the claim of separation.
If we are not separate from the rest, our whole being is not compartimented either because every cell in your body has all the information of its main occupancy as well as the information of all the other parts. What this means is that a misalignement happening in the skin will be registered, not only in the skin cells, but in all the other cells too. The other cells will then be affected by this misalignement even if they don’t occupy the skin space.
One very easy way we can see that relationship is how a sleep disorder and a digestive issue are correlated. When one is rectified, the other very often tend to come back to balance as well.
I am telling you this because when we want to address chronic inflammation, we begin focusing on something that might seem unrelated to the symptoms of this state (this war). And that is because they are all working with each other.
So in order to stop the war of chronic inflammation inside the system, we need to start from a broader perspective and look at our patterns of behaviour. We need to look at the time we go to bed, the time we get out of bed and the time we eat. We need to look at what we do in certain times of the day and we need to see if we do certain things daily, that we are really supposed to do DAILY when everything works as it should.
Ayurveda says “if you eat everyday, you poop everyday” for instance. Another saying is “everyday you move your breath, bowel and body”. Both of those expressions say that unless you have the wrong rhythm of life (wrong = not the logical one), you should have a well functioning organism that takes in new information, treats it, uses what is useful and eliminates the waste.
This is how we avoid or get rid of, chronic inflammation. Because when that is happening naturally, there is no war zone inside.
