In previous issues of Computer Times, we printed a 26-month series from the book titled Get The MOST from Yourself, by Dr. Terry Kibiloski. This is the 18th article of that series.
Harmony is the Key to Everything
The human system is similar to the personal computer system, with three major parts – the body (hardware), the mind (software), and the spirit, or soul, (user).
We are spirits having a human experience!
To maintain the human system it’s important to understand:
- Body specialists (doctors) help maintain our human body.
- Mind specialists (psychologists) help maintain our human mind.
- Spirit, or soul, specialists (priests, ministers, rabbis, etc.) teach us how to effectively use our body and mind. The ideal teacher is the Creator of our body and mind.
If you can understand the similarity between the computer system and the human system, you are on your way to getting the MOST from yourself. Let’s now look at some important principles.
- As the computer operator uses the hardware and software to have a computing experience, our spirit uses the body and mind to have a human experience
- Our overall health depends upon a harmonious relationship between our body, mind and spirit
- Our human system seeks harmony and ease, not dis-ease
- We are spirits having a human experience.
Last month, we summarized many of the principles we covered over the past several months. This month, we further explain our Body, Mind, Spirit chart.
At the top of the chart are two arrows, each pointing to the left. These represent the fact that our spirit controls our mind and, in turn, our mind controls our body. Beneath the top labels of Body, Mind and Spirit are the words Hardware, Software, and User to show the parallel between a computer and ourselves. As a computer user uses the hardware and software to have a computing experience, we (as spirits) use our body and mind to have a human experience.
The next section of the chart is the “healing” section. This shows the mode many people are in most of their lives. As their internal ease turns to dis-ease, they go to doctors to help heal the physical; psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psych…, to help heal the mental; and clergy to help heal the spiritual.
As we begin to understand more about ourselves, and decide to take control of our human experience, we progress to the “prevention” section of our chart. We begin making healthy choices and provide the steady supply of pure air, clean water, fresh food, exercise, and rest each of our cells needs to stay healthy. Notice that our spirit does not require air, water, and food, but it does require the spiritual equivalent of exercise and rest, called prayer and meditation.
As we continue to progress in our life journey, we realize that health is not enough, we need to use our health as our Creator intended – to apply the real “magic” of the human experience. We soon discover this magic is harmony and unconditional love
From the orbits of our planets to the fragile balance between our body, mind and spirit, it is easy to see that
- Harmony is the glue that holds everything together in our universe.
- Like any system, our human system is only as strong as its weakest part. Our overall health depends upon a harmonious relationship between our body, mind and spirit. Like any team, every member must support the common goal.
Closely related to the harmony that must exist between our body, mind and spirit, is the harmony (love) we need to have with other human beings. Just as the success of each cell in our human system depends upon its harmony with other cells, our success in the greater human system depends upon our harmony with other people.
Remember, our spirit controls our mind and, in turn, our mind controls our body. This interaction requires a healthy body, mind and spirit for us to get the MOST from ourselves.
Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND.
