Most people guard against exposing themselves to toxins in their air, water and food if they can.  Yet they daily immerse their bodies with neurochemicals produced by anger, hate, fear, stress, worry, anxiety, depression and violence.  These are just as damaging to the body and mind.  Yes, the pressures of life are inevitable for us all but you can exercise control over how you interpret the sense data your mind receives and whether you live in the past or the present.

Mark Anthony said, “Holding on to anger, resentment and hatred is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”  Many people use defense mechanisms such as denial, repression, inhibitions, victimization, control or domination to protect the wall they have built around their heart.  The body pays a price for this.  Deepak Chopra said, “We don’t just have experiences; we metabolize them.”



If this shoe fits, you have work to do to bring your mind, body and soul into balance.  Like peeling an onion, it takes time and there are tears.  Begin by listening to your body and mind; they don’t suffer in silence.  When in meditation ask your heart what it wants to say.  Listen to God speak to you in the peace, stillness and silence of meditation.  As the past comes up feel the feelings, own them, retain the lessons learned and release the emotional energy by sharing it with God or someone you trust.  Ask God for the strength to see this process through to its completion and the power to take appropriate actions to secure your well being in your living environment, work place and relationships.  Take small steps in the beginning if you must but grow in courage to honor your body, mind and soul.

  1. Rev. Carol Wood says:

    Once upon a time humans lived in a more peaceful quiet environment where they were not connected to technology 24/7. Whey they left work for the day, they left work behind until tomorrow. Today people are connected to work, friends, associates, neighbors, church, and organizations all the time. Taking time away to rest, or to find silence in this noisy world we live in is very difficult for those who are connected through technology. All you have to do is walk in a store and all you see or hear is people talking on their phones, texting, or e-mailing others while they shop. Being connected seems to be very essential to us. Even quiet walks on the beach or in parks are filled with voices and people walking with their heads down while texting or playing on the phone.

    In the past few years I have noticed people are more depressed, angry, frustrated, fearful, and violent. I believe that the economy, loss of jobs, frustration with politicians and government have taken away much our sense of peace and well being. I live in a city where road rage takes the lives of innocent people because they make a mistake on the roadway and the rage of the other driver often costs them their life.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if companies told their employee’s to leave their computers, phones, files, and work at the door when they left for the week end. How great it would be if people just went home from work and took time for themselves and their families to ride a bike on a quiet bike path, or stroll along a beach while the waves washed over their feet. It would be so great to sit on a hillside with someone you love and watch the sunset after a hectic day.

    It would be such a blessing to be able to quietly put the past in a box and close the lid. What a blessing it would be to be able to forgive the past and look forward to the future with hope and expectations of the good in life that is yet to come. I hope that everyone who reads Dean’s Blog will want to take time away for meditation, prayer, or just a quiet time alone to rest and restore your body, spirit and soul. The best is yet to come….wait on it with an expectant heart and soul,
