Spiritual Health


Recommended Posts

How do we achieve inner peace and find meaning and purpose in life on today's unnatural hectic society. Where most people are so far away from reality due to the modern stressors on the mind. To even begin to achieve this first your mind has to be in the right frame of mind or you will struggle to get to that level of spiritual enlightenment.

for instance 200 years ago people were more spiritual and open to religion. Due to their mind being free from the many ill effects of modern society . ie bad diet, no exercise. all this effects the mind and consequently ones spiritual health as we cannot attain spiritual well being when our mind is not correctly functioning to begin with. Just like our bodies have become overweight and unhealthy due to diet and nutrition so has our mind. but the only difference is you cannot see your mind hence its not that obvious to people and ourselves to the actual condition of it. Its like trying to run a marathon when you haven't done any exercise all your life and then suddenly have to run 26 miles.

ie if your mind is unhealthy how can you actually be a good Sikh and even understand and feel the benefits of peace from region when our minds are completely out of shape. I believe to reach this goal, first your mind needs to be in shape also before you can even fully begin start this journey.

what causes our minds to become unbalanced and lead us onto the path of self destruction and also committing bad deeds?? ie to feel the pleasure that comes from our religion first our brain must be in an actual position to feel this.

I think one of the best things we can do to get our mind in shape is to do physical exercise. as exercise is not only good for our physical health but also more importantly good for our brain/mind. I would say we need to jog a few miles a day.

What the jist of this thread is.

How can one truthfully and fully experience Waheguru if our mental state is not ready to connect. ie due to the modern lifestyle ie poor diet high in fat and low in essential fruit and veg. This has a big determent to our mental well being and health. It causes us to be unable to connect to God even if we wanted to.

to fully experience God we first have to get our minds healthy otherwise it wont come from the heart.

Im not saying you wont be able to experience God. But not to the full potential. That only comes when the mind is pure and clean and correctly working to its full potential.
