MAS VIDAL : HARMONY WITH AYURVEDA

Healing is a natural part of life and is something we always have to think about, especially as the body ages. In life we realize more and more the importance of maintaining our health, so to enjoy our lives to the fullest potential. When I speak of health I am referring to an integral balance between the body, mind and spirit. True health as taught in the science of Ayurveda is about living in harmony with ourselves, and the elements around us. Ayurveda literally means the wisdom of life, and is one of the most ancient systems of healing in the world, dating back thousands of years from India.

Ayurveda is based on the very practical concept that the body and mind are intrinsically related to one another, and without a good relationship or connection between the two, we are more susceptible to imbalance, stress and disease. Further, the body-mind relationship is also necessary to bring us into inner harmony with our spirit. Have you ever felt a sense of not knowing what you want to do with your life? A lack of feeling purposeful in your work or life in general, can come from not fully committing to your truth. This misalignment comes from not being connected to your spirit and in order to establish this deeper relationship it must begin with a sound body-mind relationship.

Ayurveda’s teachings are based on placing us into accordance with natural law. This means establishing lifestyle routines that include a fourfold balanced approach to living. This approach begins with good quality relationships that provide us support, affection, friendship and enjoyment, known as kama. The second lifestyle principle is artha or vocation, which emphasizes the importance of any work that places us into action and fulfillment. Work is something we all need to do and Ayurveda teaches us that, it’s not what we do, but how we do it that matters most in determining the quality of our lives. Not to mention, that when we do good work we are focused and manifesting a greater discipline between the body-mind relationship.

Now this sets the foundation for the most powerful lifestyle principle of living with purpose and direction. When we have purpose or dharma in life, it gives the physical body great strength and resilience to seasonal weather shifts that can often throw us off balance, and living a purposeful life can also help the body adapt to the modern day stress of sensory over stimulation. The highest dharma as taught in Ayurveda is the relationship we share with nature’s laws, seasons, diet and self-care. Therefore Ayurveda teaches us how to care for the body and mind as we continue on our journey towards enlightenment. We are all given the blessing to have life, for a reason, and that is what each human being must discover for themselves.

Yoga as Ayurveda’s sister science provides for us an incredible methodology to actualize the grandeur message hidden in all of life’s experiences. Yoga gives us the insight to decipher the messages hidden behind the veil of coincidence. Finally, both Ayurveda and Yoga share equal interest in the last principle of liberation or moksha. To have real liberation according to Ayurveda is to get off the perpetual swing of discomfort as fabricated by the doshas (air, fire & water) through good and consistent self-care routines. To have freedom mentally in Ayurveda is to establish the mind in its pure and calm state of being, through meditation, herbal medicines, mindful walking and breathing exercises and plenty of time in nature.

Both Ayurveda and Yoga help to enlighten our efforts of finding the inner harmony we all seek. If we learn to live in harmony with Mother Nature through her wisdom as we call it “Ayurveda,” we can create a greater harmony and understanding of our inner nature and live with the spirit of our being.
