I started very young at age 12, wanting to be a great herbalist like my father. I think the toughest teaching was the mind, how our inner emotion can effect our body and our out come in life. Early on, I was learning to cope with life and death. It is not about the day we are born or the day we pass, it is about how we lived our life and the difference we made that counts. My father taught me when he passed away, he would still there with me and my mission was to create a village to pass on the knowledge that he has left to me. To create great health, it takes lots of discipline and commitment.
There is an old saying that I love:
“If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.”
I may not be the smartest or the fastest learner, but I am a practitioner and healer that is patient. I am dedicated and believe in keeping a reputation to do the best I can. I believe in the mind, the consciousness and knowledge. The door of the mind refers to our thoughts, emotions and mental images. Each experience is received in this way and is colored by a feeling tone, which is either pleasant, unpleasant or neutral. The relation of the mind, consciousness and knowledge helps us maintain our health and be aware of our inner wisdom.
We are gifted with the six senses: our sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch are the five most well know senses, the most important is the sixth sense: is the thought. The sixth sense is also called the sixth consciousness. These correspond to the sixth sense organs: eyes, nose, tongue, ears, body and the mind. This is what I wanted to share with you, the importance of our sixth sense to our health.
Kaz reminds me of the importance of keeping my emotions in balance. I am reminded to take my CE pills, I do get hormonally out of balance and for men either the DTF to support the Kidneys (essence of life) or DL pills for liver yang, liver is the organ of emotions. If it doesn’t serve you , get rid of it and don’t borrow trouble. Stay well and pay attention to your balance through all six senses.
