3 Enemies That Rob Your Health – Part 3

The third enemy of the 3 Enemies is a juicy and mouth watering one that tantalizes you with its thousand and one flavors available at your beck and call.

It is all around you. Without it life and living is impossible.

A good portion of the population live to do just that as another good chunk of the population is dying (literally) due to lack of that.  What is it?

You guessed it – it is CURRY. Well, when I say ‘Curry’ – I don’t just mean Indian, Sri Lankan or Thai curries.  ‘Curry’ here is synonymous with any kind of fatty, sugary, salty, spicy food and/or drink that we crave constantly.

Yes, we live to eat most of the time.  Our pantries are over flowing and girths ever expanding, whilst our physical health is dwindling rapidly due to life style illnesses that were virtually absent only decades ago – not to mention the resulting effect on the health in all the other personality domains.

There is advise streaming at us on the ill effects that excess food can cause.

And yet we ignore – I know I do.

I would like to connect the dots between the 3 enemies and show how they contribute towards dis-ease in all 5 Personality Domains.

Whichever way you look at it, the 3 enemies are connected.

Hurry causes Worry, whilst Worry can create Hurry.

Both Hurry & Worry can contribute to Curry (substitute with rich, fatty, quick, fast food that is empty in nutrients and high in calories)

Hurry leads to depletion of health in the Physical domain.  When you Hurry, you are not making time for important things in life like cooking  nutritious wholesome meals – so you reach for Curry. Curry makes you Worry because you know (deep down) the long term effects of it.

Worry robs health in the Mental and Emotional domains. When you Worry, your mental faculties are so preoccupied that you are unable to plan and execute things to your full capacity – that leads you to Hurry through and you grab a Curry.

Curry slowly and gradually depletes your physical health as well as your Social health.  When you Curry, you may gain temporary Social health (Friends, Parties, good food) but it will catch up eventually.  Lack of physical energy will reduce your social contribution.

The three combined cause severe gaps in health in physical, mental, emotional, social domains.  When you are struggling to keep healthy in so many domains, nourishing & nurturing your Spiritual Domain is the last thing you will think of.

Lack of nourishment to Spiritual domain leads to crisis that causes us to breakdown literally through dis-ease and lack of meaningful contribution.  We will neither Savor nor Serve the world.

Do you have to wait for dis-ease to arrive in order for you to wake up?

There is an antidote to the 3 enemies – but that will have to be another post.  Until then

  • Slow the Hurry
  • Reduce the Worry
  • Moderate the Curry
