Ayurveda

Ayurveda literally means the “science of life”. (Ayur – Life, Veda – Science). It’s an ancient medical science which was developed in India thousands of years ago.

“Balance is emphasized, and suppressing natural urges is considered unhealthy and claimed to lead to illness. Ayurveda names three elemental substances, the doshas (called Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and states that a balance of the doshas results in health, while imbalance results in disease.”

Just like the astrotheological concept of “as above so below” Ayurveda says that all the elements that make up all things are included in us as well. Once we learn about the elements and how they act with different variables we will understand more about ourselves and our healing.

Taking a quiz like http://tridosha.com/self-test will allow you to learn about your body so that you can choose correct foods that will balance you from the inside out.

I am a Student of Life currently living in India with my wife and son. I am interested in philosophy, discussions of life and how to make it better as we learn, individually, how to lead ourselves. We're waking up, and our mindset is changing. We need to increase our perspectives in order to become more tolerant and eventually more loving toward all life. The skeptics that would bawk at ideas of communities of people living in peace, choosing to "work" for themselves as a means for a "living" instead of profit and consumerism, simply means they aren't at the same level of understanding and aren't surrounded by an environment or others that would support those ideals. My proposal is for more people to leave their comfortable lives and conveniences and increase their time in nature. Reconnect with that which we are. My goal is in "being" not in "having"
