Once all the creatures were created and their hunger satiated they began to reproduce. Soon there were too many of them. Brahma could see that the cosmos was choked with too much life. He wondered where he had made an error.

Saraswati pointed out to him that he had forgotten to create death.for life to go on he realised death was essential. He created Mrityu, He ordered her to go and kill all creatures. Mrityu was horrified of the formidable task and fled. Shiva found Mrityu crying in a desolate place. He consoled her and assured her that all those who would die would be reborn. So she would be mother even though she would kill. Thus it came to be that Death became not the end of life but a gateway to a new one. Mrityu took the form of Mahakali, devoured all life and Shiva became Mahakala, the lord of time, the regenerator. Life became a wheel, rotated by Shiva an eternal cycle of births and rebirths.

On Healing and Forgiveness – Dolph Lundgren

Some Great Insights on “Healing and Forgiveness” from Dolph Lundgren’s TED Talk

Therapy helped him to understand himself in a way he never had before. One of the things that he learned is that certain parts of the body “freeze” when people go through traumatic emotional experiences, especially during childhood, and they will carry the energy of trauma until the trauma that is buried is brought back to the surface and resolved. He realized why he couldn’t be at peace with himself, and why he kept inflicting suffering on the people around him, continuing a cycle that seemed to be out of his control. Once he was able to connect with the painful childhood experiences that were at the heart of his patterns of thinking and behavior, he was able to shift and transform them.

Once the pattern of that energy was revealed and transformed, he was no longer trapped in a cycle of thinking and behavior that he could not seem to free himself from. He also understood who he was and why he acted the way he did as never before. This is the key to transforming addictions and other negative patterns of thought and behavior that imprison so many people. Without going back to the true cause of the issue, healing and change are monumentally difficult. Willpower alone is almost never enough.

Now, Dolph Lundgren has a new sense of purpose in his life and a new and better way of relating to the world that is focused on doing good for others. He has found a better and far truer sense of personal fulfillment through doing something that serves the greater good, instead of chasing the strictly selfish gratifications that modern society glorifies and promotes. As a believer in therapy, meditation, and improving himself by examining his life, he has found a much better way to relate to the people and the world around him. – Joseph Turiano

Is there a best time to sleep? There is a saying that sleeping early and waking up early is good for your health. How true is that? Is it alright to sleep late and wake up late?

You actually has an amazing biological clock ticking inside your body. It is very precise. It helps to regulate your various body functions including your sleeping time.

From 11pm to 3am, most of your blood circulation concentrates in your liver. Your liver gets larger when filled with more blood. This is an important time when your body undergoes detoxification process. Your liver neutralizes and breaks down body toxins accumulated throughout the day.

However if you don’t sleep at this time, your liver cannot carry out this detoxification process smoothly.

  • If you sleep at 11pm, you have full 4 hours to detoxify your body.
  • If you sleep at 12am, you have 3 hours.
  • If you sleep at 1am, you have 2 hours.
  • And if you sleep at 2am, you only have 1 hour to detoxify.
    What if you sleep after 3am? Unfortunately, you won’t have any time to actually detoxify your body. If you continue with this sleeping pattern, these toxins will accumulate in your body over time. You know what happens next.

What if you sleep late and wake up late?

Have you tried going to bed very late at night? Did you realize you feel very tired the next day no matter how much you sleep?

Sleeping late and waking up late is indeed very bad for your health. Besides not having enough time to detoxify your body, you will miss out other important body functions too.

From 3am to 5am, most blood circulation concentrates in your lung. What should you do at this moment? Well, you should exercise and breathe in fresh air. Take in good energy into your body, preferably in a garden. At this time, the air is very fresh with lots of beneficial negative ions.

From 5am to 7am, most blood circulation concentrates in your large intestine. What should you do at this moment? You should poop! Pass out all unwanted poop from your large intestine. Prepare your body to absorb more nutrients throughout the day.

From 7am to 9am, most blood circulation concentrates in your stomach. What should you do at this moment? Have your breakfast! This is your most important meal in a day. Make sure you have all the required nutrients from your breakfast. Not having breakfast causes lotsssssss of health problems for you in the future.

That’s the way to start your day

There you are… the most ideal way to start your day. After fully detoxifying your blood during your sleep, you wake up fresh to inhale beneficial energy. Then you pass out unwanted poop from your large intestine. After that, you take in balanced nutrients to prepare your body for a new day.

No wonder people living in villages or farms is healthier. They sleep early and wake up early. They follow their natural biological clock.

Living in city, we have more difficulty in following this sleeping schedule. For me, I have been striving hard to sleep before 12am for more than 20 years! With our new baby, it’s even harder to sleep early. If baby hasn’t sleep, my wife and I cannot sleep.

But once I know the importance of our biological clock, I’ll try my best to follow it. If I wake up early, I usually start my day by checking email. But when I see the clock shows 7am, I know it’s the best time for breakfast. So I’ll try to have my breakfast before 9am for best absorption.

Try to follow this timing as close as possible. I’m sure you will feel fresher and more energetic all day long.
