A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek).
Some one says I am healthy
Some one says I am unhealthy
Now how does one define health
Thats the big question ?
Health is the experience of no- body
If you have a headache
Than you know you have a head.
If you have a stomach ache
Than you realize you have a stomach.
When you have no-ache
You also forget that you have a body
Every thing seems to work perfectly right
All functions of the body are working automatically
May be billions of functions are working miraculously
Your inhaling, your exhaling
Your heart beat, your blood moving
Your digestion, your purification
Your thinking, your emotions
All working just in perfect harmony
Without you every knowing about it
Without you knowing the existence of your body.
This is health !
The experience of no – body
The experience of nobodyness
When you are some `body’
You are in ill health
When you are in somebodyness
You are in ill – health.
Somebodyness means thinking that
I am a doctor, I am engineer
I am a father , I am husband
I am a mother , I am a wife.
I am a general manager , I am a director
I am I am ….. . is somebodyness
Somebodyness is disease
Nobodyness is health
SAMADHI is a state of ‘ nobodyness’
SAMADHI is HEALTH.
