I saw a documentary in Discovery channel yesterday about a woman weighing 650 lbs (295 Kgs) going through weight loss program through traumatic surgeries and spending her whole life in house prison. Even small pleasures of life like seeing the open sky or witnessing her son playing Foot ball is not within her reach as she is not mobile due to her over weight.
The cause of the obesity is because of over eating which has a root cause of some disappointment when she was 12 years old. She spends years to loose 300 lbs weight with a painful treatment like stomach by pass etc.
The American economy could feed for such silly causes and so many non value added activities for her husband!! We don't see such obesity in India as we have poverty that keeps us busy.
The point to be noted is how people discover reasons to be unhappy and spend their whole life on good for nothing sufferings. If you can't recognize the divine in you and lean upon Him you are bound to be depressed which leads to all kind of problems in life. Your essential nature is 'Peace & Tranquility' and beware of this monster 'Depression' which can kill you.
Any moment in your life if you feel bored, please wake up as boredom is the initial stage of 'Depression'. You are not born to be bored. Even animals don't get bored!!! Boredom is the result of not knowing the purpose in life. Find your very purpose why you are here in this planet. Definitely not only for eating & sleeping which is the characteristic of 'Muladhara chakra'. Rise above it for making a difference.
With whole of my heartNC
