today's modern world, we are seduced by comfortable lifestyles. We abuse our technological
advantage. We seem to forget the power of our bodies and minds. In many cases,
we prefer to lean back in the controlled comfort of our
living rooms watching TV instead of using our time creatively for personal growth.
In today's modern
life, our modern societies are geared for mass production which in many ways takes
the richness from nature and returns the waste of its products. Mass-production
and the abuse of technology have disrupted our harmony with nature. Observe how
disposable products are increasingly replacing objects of pride and beauty, simple
things that would last a lifetime and beyond.
how children are also affected by the abuse of technology; they are overloaded
with desire for material things and they demand to be entertained according to
what they see on television. Most of the master craftsmen have also been affected
by mass production. In the past, their hands and creative ability were applied
to fulfilling our needs. Now machines do most of their work and gradually skilled,
hand-crafted, custom-made products are becoming things of the past.WHAT
CAN WE DO TO GET CLOSER TO THE NATURAL ORDER?One effective way to live
closer to the natural order is to take good care of your mental and physical state.
this you need to develop good eating habits and exercise your body every day using
natural forms of training. Stay away from machines and equipment that are not
practical to use. A good training system is one that you can use every day, anytime,
anywhere and for the rest of your life. A good training system should also integrate
the adoption of good mental and physical habits. If you consider simple solutions
like taking pills to reduce weight or supplements to build big muscles without
symmetry or flexibility, then you are erroneously defying nature.
Having good eating habits and training your body correctly is the most responsible
way to live closer to the natural order. Gradually you will be a responsible consumer
that only buys the products and services needed to sustain your best physical
and mental state. Gradually our societies will produce products for our well being
and those products created for mere convenience and selfish reasons will be eliminated.
to acquiring good eating habits, exercising, meditating and interacting with society
and nature. Learn how to enjoy your body and mind naturally. This attitude will
attune you to the natural order, and will plant the seeds which will make our
societies aware of the importance of living closer to nature. Then, gradually,
the natural order will prevail.
