Start of a new self

Today I decided to start a new blog heal.thy.self which actually derived from Healthy Self. I was toying with the words and saw that the words can mean several things - healthy self or heal thy self. What is the self? It is the trinity BODY-MIND-SOUL (SPIRIT) which makes up a BEING. For a healthy self, we need a healthy body, a healthy mind and a healthy soul.

How do we become a total BEING? We have to be positive and creative in thoughts, words and action. We have to accept what is and stay present in the now. We have to be balanced in our views, like the TAO - yin and yang existing in harmony.

I have read so many self help books. I have journeyed through almost all the religions of our world. I have had many spiritual experiences. I have endured almost losing my mind in depression. Ultimately, everything boils down to the same thing. It starts with me, my self, my own true self - how I treat myself, my body, my mind and my soul. It is about letting go of my ego which plays with my mind.

A new self, much like Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth, a new beginning.
