Medicine, self help, and all the various kinds of therapy (secular and non) are huge business, constantly gaining converts and money and power. While people are simultaneously getting less and less happy. The fact is that at best these approaches can cover up the symptoms a bit, and maybe give people a sort of jury rigged good enough type solution to their current problems.
But the best and simplest approach is to actually go to the root of the problem, which is, of course, the basic needs.
We like to think we’re all clever and holier-than-thou when we find some kind of enlightened, technological, or ancient secret that allows us to circumvent our problems. But in reality we’re just creating some fancy decoration that we’re so very carefully balancing, lest it topple over, that makes everything seem better, while ignoring the whole underbelly of our lives which is very likely corroding to the point of collapse.
While those who find themselves considering how easy it can be to actually eliminate the majority of their problems when they focus on building a strong platform of a healthy body, by putting in the highest quality whole living foods, clean water, fresh air, comforting warmth, and energizing light, soon discover that those fancy decorations are unnecessary, and that they are capable of flowing through life joyfully and easily with their own solid and flexible selves.
