"Above all else, calmness is the most important thing." - Master Feeman Ong
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there are 2 things to look at when we speak of living a healthy life. External influences and internal ones. The TCM view is that sickness is brought about by these two things. Traditionally external is looked at first and internal second. External being those things in our environment, lifestyle, diet, exercise, etc. Internal being our mindset and emotional state.
Both of these things can bring about drastic changes in our health and wellness. Today we'll be covering internal influences. Particularly the problems stemming from excess//unbalanced emotions and correct attitudes toward life which can deter these problems altogether. This of course includes meditation so I'll be following up this post with the most important attributes to all meditation practices.
