"put into perspective"

is that another example of #naiverealism ? does it show a presumption that the perspective being put in is the perspective, and that there's not any such thing as other perspectives to consider?

Visitor:

A woman along with Paul had no parking space, so there was a problem.
She said ‘I include it’ and then, there was space available for parking.

Nisargadatta Maharaj:

The place for parking is because of the determination ‘I am everything’.
The common man’s devotion is that of wanting A.B.C and so forth, it’s like bargaining, they pay no attention to the eternal.

The #Hatha Yogis in the process of the Hatha #Yoga acquire Siddhis (powers), so they are an attraction for the masses
but they stagnate there and there is no eternal realization.

Whatever your mind revels in, therein you fall in a pit.

Creation said:
“I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it.
It is the realization that they create their own reality.”
The eagle said,
“Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”
The Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it.”
The salmon said,
“I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.”
The Creator said, “No. They will go there, too.”
The buffalo said, “I will bury it on the Great Plains.”
The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.”
Grandmother who lives in the breast of Mother Earth,
and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said
“Put it inside of them.”
And the Creator said, “It is done.”

Because of the fast paced nature of our society, overcoming or reducing stress has made it to the list of top ten New Year’s Resolutions. Approximately 19 million Americans suffer from stress related illnesses. The hormone, cortisol, is released during stressful events. When stimulated constantly, over time, it can lead to mental disturbances and a risk of infection and disease. Learning to manage stress leads to healthier and happier living. Here are seven solutions for regulating stress.
· Adequate Sleep. Sleep is the number one defense against stress. It allows the mind and body to rejuvenate. When we awaken refreshed, we are more able to handle stressful situations. For the average person, adequate sleep is eight to ten hours of uninterrupted sleep.
· Meditation. Meditation is the opposite of the fight or flight mechanism. It is a deep state of restful awareness that counters stress. Practicing twenty minutes a day helps us to remain calm is stressful si... Show more...
 

Mom's Job Stress May Spread to Kids


Low job satisfaction in working mothers increases the stress levels of their children, but allowing them to spend more time in childcare can help overcome these effects, according to new research published in Developmental Psychobiology.
Children whose mothers found their jobs emotionally exhausting or otherwise less rewarding had higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol than children whose mothers reported more enjoyment from their jobs, researchers found in a study involving more than 50 nursery school children.
Levels of cortisol in the evening were more than double in the children whose mothers experienced less job satisfaction. Placing those children in childcare would help to significantly reduce their stress, the research suggests.
The researchers also found that children from families that were either highly expressive or very reserved exhibited higher than average cortisol levels.

Are You Exercising Your Way To Stress?


You’re right, the headline is a very strange one! Exercise is vital to maintain good health and most of the time, the benefits of exercise far out-weigh the drawbacks. But if you suffer from a stressful or a depressive illness, exercise can actually make you feel worse. But how can this be?
I’m sure you’ve heard the following statement over and over again: exercise can help you to beat stress, or alleviate anxiety or boost a depressed mind. This is only true in part. Because many exercises can actually worsen these illnesses. And even if you perform exercises that can help, these exercises will only help temporarily.
The reason many people believe exercise to be helpful in combating stressful and depressive illnesses is because when you exercise vigorously for longer than 20 minutes, your body floods with endorphins. These chemicals give us a buzz, and this is why it is widely believed that exercise can cure s... Show more...
 
Stress and anxiety are physical, emotional, and psychological problems usually associated with highly-driven professionals, corporate executives, artists and performers, and even individual's with a history of substance abuse. Their work involves a flurry of activities, a set of nearly impossible deadlines, and the need to consistently “perform” at peak levels.

But perhaps, it is high time to pay more attention to the enormous stress and anxiety felt by those people whose jobs include the daily pressure of possibly losing their lives. Needless to say, soldiers in the battlefield are among those who are most prone to emotional and psychological distress. The War in Iraq, called Operation Iraqi Freedom in military terms, began in March 20, 2003. It is considered one of the costliest armed conflicts entered into by the United States --- in terms of funding and the toll on human lives. As of August 2007, at least 3,773 American soldiers had been killed and more than 27... Show more...
 
Stress affects health in many ways, unfortunately none of them affects well-being in a good way. Many health specialists claim, as normal human experience would confirm, that stress and depression can have negative effects on physical health. In the long run, persons under high stress can develop eating disorders and sleep disturbances. These conditions could also possibly lead to decreased physical energy, chronic pain, and sexual dysfunction.

Physical illnesses are almost always present whenever a person is under extremely stressful conditions. Even the body's internal processes respond to external difficulties experienced by a person. During stressful situations, the adrenal glands inside the body release a substance called cortisol. Cortisol is a natural steroid hormone that science experts refer to as the “stress hormone.” It is known as the“stress hormone” because large amounts of this substance are released whenever a person feels stressed out. It is an important hormone in the human body because it is involved in proper glucose metabolism, regul... Show more...
 

Why Women Should Avoid Being Stressed During Pregnancy


Stress has become an inevitable consequence of modern everyday life, and as we are subjected to increasing amounts of it, we experience more and more of the effects of the great rate of wear and tear we subject our bodies to. The term was originally coined by Hans Selye in 1936, and defined by him as "the non-specific response of the body to any demand for change." This means that we are all subjected to stress, but its effects on our bodies differ greatly from person to person, largely dependent on the gravity of and how we handle the stressful situation. It manifests itself in any number of physical or psychological symptoms that are often ignored until it seriously affects our health. In fact, stress is currently one of the leading causes of illness worldwide, such as depression, erectile dysfunction, hypertension and heart disease. This increasing number of stress-related illnesses has raised alarm bells throughout the worldwide medical community.

Feeling tired all the time? Feel like sleeping after your lunch

break? Ever experienced that there are days that you're energy is

so low? Probably you are overworked or always under stress? You

may be experiencing fatigue.
Fatigue is a common health complaint. Around 20% of Americans

experienced excessive fatigue that is enough to interfere with

their normal life. However, one of the hardest terms to define and

a symptom of many different conditions. Fatigue, also known as

weariness, tiredness, lethargy, exhaustion is generally defined as

a feeling of lack of energy and motivation. It is not the same as

drowsiness, but the desire to sleep may accompany fatigue.
Fatigue is a symptom, rather than a specific disease or disorder.

People who are fatigued feel tired all the time in both body and

mind. A person suffering from fatigue has slowed reflexes and

reduced interest in engaging in daily functions. Excessive fatigue

is also a known risk factor for workplace and car accidents.

It is normal for every person to experience anxiety attacks, especially during stressful situations and traumatic events in life. As health experts say, anxiety is a typical response of person's body that signals possible dangers ahead. However, when anxiety becomes extreme to the point that it prevents a person from living the normal life that he intends to have, that person may possibly be suffering from anxiety disorder.

Defining what is anxiety disorder

Anxiety disorder is generally a term that covers different types of extreme pathological phobia, fear, and anxiety. A person suffering from an anxiety disorder may experience abnormal feelings of anxiety even without knowing the cause or he may also have intense and sudden panic attacks. The attacks may be in the form of unwanted obsessions or compulsions and uncommon social inhibitions.

Even though anxiety disorders have different forms, they are all the same in one thing – extreme and persistent worryi... Show more...

This mantra destroys obstacles in your life. One of the greatest Tibetan Mantras.

MANTRA MEANING:

The great master Mipham Rinpoche condenses the significance of Vajrakilaya in the following words:
Suchness is the natural state of all phenomena

This is the great perfection free of duality.

“Seeing the frightful transformations of Māra’s army,

There is no demon, no army, no beings; there is not even a self.
Like the image of the moon in the water, the cycle of the three worlds is misleading.”
