Health is natural, thus effortless, to the individual who
has achieved harmony between body and mind.
The words health, whole and holy all share the same ancestry. Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary defines health as the “condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit.” We understand it more often as the absence of disease and freedom from pharmaceutical drugs. But great health is a state of extraordinary well being. It relies on more than good nutrition and physical fitness. As George Leonard says in his essay “Towards a Balanced Way,” good health involves “a vibrant flow of ‘energy’ throughout the body. It implies body/mind/spirit harmony.”
Health and well being are the vibrant stream of life through the subtle and gross layers of the human body: truth itself flowing optimally through each of the five essential intelligences. Each layer, in turn, is in balance and in harmony with the others. Health is effortless. It is natural law—the simple flow of energy, undiluted and unimpeded. Some limits to health are found in genetic shortcomings. But most illness and physical ailments are rooted in the blocks found within the layers of intelligence. These obstacles constrict the natural flow of energy, affecting the overall health and well-being of the body. Richard Strozzi Heckler, co-founder of the Lomi School, sees ill health in this way:
All disease, whether physical, emotional, or mental, acute or chronic, is the result of an obstructed energy flow. The effectiveness of any healing art, therapy, or system of learning is determined by its ability to reconstitute life flow in a balanced harmonious fashion. Creativity is movement; disease is blocked movement. Healing reconnects awareness to areas lacking vitality and movement.
