Letting Go to Heal


Letting Go to Heal

To be diagnosed with cancer or an autoimmune disease is a devastating experience for many, especially when the doctor says that there is little or no known cure, except managing the disease symptoms with medications and other undesirable procedures. Self-efficacy, which is self-belief, is critically important in healing and coping with a disease or disorder. You have to believe that humans have a built-in mechanism not only to fight against diseases and disorders but also to get healed from them. As a matter of fact, for thousands of years, physicians and sages all over the world have acquired and assimilated this profound wisdom in healing.

Wisdom is the ability to interpret information in order to influence one's choices in actions that will ultimately transform the body and the mind. Wisdom in healing is therefore the use of right choices for right actions to facilitate the natural self-healing process innate in humans.

To have that wisdom, you must, first and foremost, have an empty mind.

"An empty mind with no craving and no expectation helps us let go.
Being in the world and not of the world, we attain heavenly grace.
With heavenly grace, we become pure and selfless.
And everything settles into its own perfect place."
(Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, Chapter 3)

The above is taken from the translation of the famous ancient Chinese classic Tao Te Ching.

According to Lao Tzu, the ancient sage from China, who was the author of the immortal classic Tao Te Ching on human wisdom, we must have an empty mind before we can attain true human wisdom. An empty mind means we let go of any pre-conceived concepts and ideas before we can receive new ones. The human mind is often "conditioned" or "programmed" into a certain way of thinking because of the regular input into the subconscious mind, which controls the conscious mind. 

It is not easy to have an empty mind because of the presence of the ego-self, which is made up of many attachments that may self-delusively identify who you are. So, to have an empty mind begins with letting go of all attachments, which include emotional and material attachments that are the raw materials with which you have created your ego-self.

How do you let go in the first place?

Letting go is an involuntary surrender; the opposite of conscious holding on. Letting go is a simple and natural process of the human mind. It provides you with real freedom--it is the absence of that feeling you may have of being trapped; it is having no strong feeling about something, whether it happens or does not happen to you.

Over the long haul, letting go may lead to an empty mind. With an empty mindset, you may have reverse thinking, which is not only thinking out of the box but also creating your own box of thinking.

With an empty mind, you may look at your autoimmune disease with totally different perspectives regarding prognosis and treatment. Use your empty mind to heal--just as I used my empty mind to heal my myasthenia gravis.

Holistic Weight Management


Holistic Weight Management

Change the Subconscious Mind to Change the Conscious Mind to Change Life Completely


The art of living well is wisdom in living. Living well does not require abundance, but a healthy body, a sound mind, and a joyful spirit are requisites for holistic living.

Everything in life begins with the mind--your thinking mind--because it affects your decisions and life choices, precipitating in your actions and their respective consequences, which then become your life experiences. So, how well you live is contingent on how well you think. In other words, your thoughts create your personality and henceforth the raw materials, the building blocks with which you build your own life.

But the mind is not independent of the body and the spirit; as a matter of fact, they are interrelated, and hence the importance of holistic living in the art of living well. Accordingly, the mind is significantly affected by the body. A healthy body constitutes a healthy mind; what is good for the body is also good for the brain, the hardware of your thoughts. A healthy mind breeds a joyful spirit.

Your body weight is often a good indicator of your physical health. As a matter of fact, your body shape may be a reflection of your current health conditions. To illustrate, if your body shape is like that of an apple, with extra weight in your midsection, you may have a higher risk for developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, among other health problems. The explanation is that the abdominal fat stored in a beer belly is more likely to be converted into cholesterol, causing heart problems further down the road. On the other hand, if your body shape is like that of of a pear, with extra weight around your hips instead of in your midsection, you may be less at risk for diabetes and stroke. Therefore, you cannot be healthy if you are obese. If you have heart problems with constricted blood vessels, your brain may also be affected due to restricted blood flow that carries oxygen and nutrients to your brain cells. To conclude, a healthy brain requires a healthy body with optimum body weight.

Holistic weight management is a holistic approach to weight loss. Effective weight control is more than just about weight--just as Oprah Winfrey told "People" Magazine: "My greatest failure was in believing that the weight issue was just about weight." Oprah was right: weight loss is about the body, the mind, and the spirit, not just the body weight. That explains why many have failed in their fight against weight gain and obesity. To lose weight permanently, you need holistic weight management, which begins with the mind.


First and foremost, there must be the intent to lose weight. Some people simply have a couldn't-care-less attitude towards their health, not to mention their weight problems. The intent empowers the mind to find out everything about weight loss: the body's metabolism, the calories, the digestive system; the buildup of fat, among others. The road to weight loss is paved with hurdles and obstacles that have to be overcome with discipline from the mind. Weight control is mind over matter. But your thinking mind can be your asset or liability. To illustrate, you want a piece of cheesecake, but you strongly believe that it will make you fat. So you may have second thoughts about eating it. But, unfortunately, your mind has created what you do not want--that is, getting fat--and you will attract what you do not want, which is gaining weight,through the Law of Attraction. Remember, your thoughts create your own reality--sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. The human thoughts generate energy, and negative energy attracts negative energies. Likewise, obsessing with what you do not want will, ironically enough, get you what you do not want.

Once you have control over your mind, you can also have power over your body with reference to diet, exercise, and lifestyle that will facilitate weight loss. A healthy mind and body cherishes a joyful spirit that focuses on who you are, rather than who you want to become, and thus taking away the stress that comes with self-image in the process of weight loss.

To lose weight naturally and permanently, you need to know about how to successfully manage your weight. through your mind.

Tao Wisdom Is Daily Living Wisdom


Wisdom is an important aspect of living because we need it not so much to make a success of living as to live well. In order to live well, understanding the ancient Tao wisdom plays a pivotal role, especially in its application in contemporary living. Understanding the ancient Tao wisdom is to live well.

What is Tao wisdom? It seems its too profound for human understanding. As a matter of fact, over the centuries, many people have found it intriquing and controversial, to say the least.

The ancient Tao wisdom is expressed in the book Tao Te Ching, an ancient Chinese classic ."Tao" means "The Way" to understanding the human wisdom in living; "Te" means "virtuosity" and "Ching" means "classic." The book, written by Lao Tzu (meaning "old master"), contains 81 short chapters (only 5,000 Chinese characters), expressing succinctly the wisdom of the great Chinese philosopher. According to the legend, Lao Tzu, who was born with gray hair (a sign of wisdom related with age and experience), was stopped at the city gate when he was riding backwards on an ox; he was just about to leave the ancient capital of China for another country. Lao Tzu was "forced" to record the essence of his teachings; at first, he was reluctant to put anything in writing because he believed that true human wisdom was ineffable and inexpressible, and anything that could be expressed in words would be self-limiting.

Tao Te Ching, written around the 6th century B.C., has become one of the most translated works in world literature because it is regarded by many scholars as one of the wisest books in the world.

Why is it difficult to understand Tao wisdom?

Tao wisdom in simple but profound; it is paradoxical but illuminating. It is all-embracing in that it is applicable to every aspect of life and living. Tao wisdom is universal and timeless wisdom. To fully understand and internalize Tao wisdom in living, you must, first and foremost, have an open mind or an empty mind that would be receptive to unconventional thinking. In fact, you must not only think out of the box but, more importantly, to create your own box of thinking. Your mind must not have any preconditioned ideas about anything. That is to say, you must have an empty mind for reverse thinking before you can intuit the true wisdom of Tao.

"Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.
Every desiring, one sees only the manifestations.
And the mystery itself is the doorway to all understanding."

(Lao Tzu, "Tao Te Ching," Chapter One)

To fully understand the wisdom of Tao, with an empty mind ready for reverse thinking, you must be "ever desireless" because your desires, once conceived, will "dictate" how you "would" like to live, rather than "knowing" the true wisdom of how you "should" live your life. In other words, if you have set your goals in life, you are in fact shaping your own life according to your goals; however, this may not be the true life that God has intended for you. Therefore, "ever desiring" will let you see only the manifestations of your life, not the "mystery" which holds the key to unlocking your understanding of true wisdom. In real life, if you are too preoccupied with what you want, you will miss the essence of life and the true meaning of living.

The Wisdom of Mental Attention


Mental Attention plays a pivotal role in the functioning of the human mind. Many people don’t know how to think, because according to Albert Einstein, thinking is difficult; that’s why so people do it. But thinking holds the key to human happiness: we become who we are as a result of our thoughts; in other words, we are the products of our thoughts.

To better understand Tao wisdom, read the text of "Tao Te Ching", the origin of TAO, which is the wisdom of the ancient sage Lao TzuNO EGO NO STRESS not only contains the complete text of "Tao Te Ching" but also the strategies to cope with everyday stress through the application of Tao wisdom.

Mental Attention plays a pivotal role in the functioning of the human mind. Many people don’t know how to think, because according to Albert Einstein, thinking is difficult; that’s why so people do it. But thinking holds the key to human happiness: we become who we are as a result of our thoughts; in other words, we are the products of our thoughts.

Mental attention is the capability of staying focused. In a way, many of us are suffering from attention deficit syndrome: our minds cannot stay focused; it is forever shifting back and forth between the past and the future.  

Remember, the mind always expresses its power as mental attention, which is acute awareness of the mind and the body. Most of us do not pay much attention to the body—except when we experience physical pain—let alone paying attention to the mind. But mental attention is important to the art of living well because the mind and the body are interconnected. Mental attention is essentially body consciousness or attention to the physical conditions and the needs of the body in relation to how the mind thinks.

The brain and the body are interconnected. The body is created to support the mind. For example, your thoughts affect your body sensations. If you are kissing someone you love, it is more than a physical sensation: your mind becomes elated, and your soul rejoices.

Therefore, to sharpen your mind power, you must also enhance the awareness of your body first. If you feel that your body, mind, and soul are not connected, most probably there is lack of body awareness by the mind in the first place. Learn how to align your body, mind, and soul, and live as if everything is a miracle

Don't let your mind drift. Learn how to concentrate and focus on the present moment. This is not easy, but can be done. First and foremost, stop texting while walking or driving to maintain and sustain a quiet mind.

Younger and Healthier for Longer with Vitamin D


Younger and Healthier for Longer with Vitamin D

1 billion people don't get enough vitamin D.

A study has linked vitamin D deficiency with an increased risk for cancer and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis MS, and lupus, and even heart diseases. According to researchers, mapping vitamin D receptors binding throughout the human genome, vitamin D deficiency is a major environmental factor attributed to increasing the risk of developing these disorders.

The cause of deficiency is a combination of not getting enough exposure to the sun and not having enough vitamin D in their diets. 

You can ask your doctor to give you a simple blood test called, 25-hydroxy vitamin D test.  It can tell you how deficient you might be in vitamin D.

Increase your level of vitamin D by eating more oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel and tuna, egg yolks and mushrooms, as well as  cereal and milk fortified with vitamin D. Of course, exposure to the sun (in the morning or late afternoon) may give you 20,000 IUs of vitamin D. Vitamin D must be processed by the liver and kidneys into a form (calcitriol) that can attach to vitamin D receptors in most of the body's cells. Your body stores one form of previtamin D, called dehydrocholesterol, in the skin.  When your skin absorbs sunlight, it is transformed into previtamin D3 (cholecalciferol). 

Vitamin D can lift moods and strengthen bones -- they are critical to te he elderly. Advancement in age may make an individual become depressed, especially when confronted with life challenges and health issues. Brittle bones are conducive to falls, one of the many causes of death among the elderly.

A lack of vitamin D may play a role in chronic pain caused by a variety of conditions. Research has indicated vitamin D deficiency may be implicated in musculoskeletal conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy, migraine, and inflammation.

Tao Wisdom is Daily Living Wisdom


Wisdom is an important aspect of living because we need it not so much to make a success of living as to live well. In order to live well, understanding the ancient Tao wisdom plays a pivotal role, especially in its application in contemporary living. Understanding the ancient Tao wisdom is to live well.

What Is Tao Wisdom?


Tao wisdom is the ancient wisdom from China based on the the sage Lao Tzu who was born a few centuries before Christ.


Lao Tzu was the author of the immortal ancient classic "Tao Te Ching" which has become one of the most translated works in world literature. The word "tao" literally means "way" or "pathway", and hence "the Way" referring to Tao wisdom, which is the wisdom of Lao Tzu. It must be pointed out that Lao Tzu was reluctant to write "Tao Te Ching" because he believed that true wisdom must be intuited and therefore could never be expressed in words. But he was told explicitly that he would be permitted to leave China for Tibet until he had finished his book. Very much against his will, he deliberately put down his wisdom in exactly 5,000 words, without any punctuation mark. As a result, his profound wisdom was concise, intriguing, and even controversial.

Tao wisdom plays a pivotal role in wisdom in living. For one thing, Tao wisdom enables you to live a stress-free life, which is almost impossible in this day and age. For another, it shows you how to have an empty mind, giving clarity of thinking without any conditioned mindset. The essentials of Tao wisdom provide a blueprint for living a life of balance and harmony, which is the prerequisite of self-healing or recovery from any autoimmune disease.


The Book of Life and Living is a 190-page book on wisdom in living, based on the integration of conventional wisdom, the ancient wisdom of Tao from China, and the spiritual wisdom. The art of living well is holistic living with harmony of the body, the mind, and the spirit.  Life is short. Make the best and the most out of your life. Learn how to use your mind to control your thoughts to live the life you want.
