To create health for yourself, there are three fundamentals you need to take care of – food, activity, and rest.

为了创造健康,你需要照顾三个基本方面——食物、活动、休息。

 

正确地吃

Eating Right

 

When it comes to food, one of the most important aspects that you must be conscious of is how quickly a certain type of food digests and becomes a part of yourself. If you eat something and it does not digest within three hours, it means you have eaten food that should either be avoided or reduced in quantity. If the food moves out of your stomach within three hours, it means that even if it is not the best food, it is still something your system is able to handle.

关于食物,一个最重要的方面是你必须关注每个食物需要多长时间才能消化、成为你的一部分。如果你吃的东西没有在三小时内消化,那说明你应该避免吃这种食物或者减少食用量。如果食物在三小时内移出了你的胃部,这意味着就算它不是最好的食物,它依然是你的系统能够承受的。

 

If you go to bed with a full stomach, it puts pressure on other organs in the abdomen. This will also lead to various kinds of health issues.

如果你胃部满满就去睡觉了,它会带给腹部其他器官很多压力。这也会导致各种各样的健康问题。

 

If you maintain a clear gap of five to six hours between one meal and the other without having anything in between, cleansing will happen on the cellular level. This cleansing on the cellular level is most important for a healthful life. If you are over 30 years of age, two good meals a day will suffice-one in the morning and one in the evening. 

如果你保持在两餐之间间隔五六个小时,中间不吃任何东西,清理就会在细胞层面发生。这种细胞层面的清理对于健康的生活是非常重要的。如果你超过30岁了,一天两顿就足够了——早上一顿和晚上一顿。

 

There must be three hours after the evening meal, before you go to bed. If this includes at least 20 to 30 minutes of light physical activity – such as simple walking – your system will largely be healthy. If you go to bed with food still inside the stomach, it generates a certain level of inertia in the system. Physiologically, this inertia is like an acceleration towards death. Death is ultimate inertia.

从你吃完晚餐到你入睡必须间隔三个小时。如果锻炼二十到三十分钟——比如简单地散步——你的系统会更加健康。如果你睡觉的时候胃部依然有食物,它会在系统里形成某种惰性。从生理角度说,这种惰性就像是加速走向死亡。死亡就是最终极的惰性。

 

Another dimension is that if you go to bed with a full stomach, it puts pressure on other organs in the abdomen. This will also lead to various kinds of health issues. For that reason too, it is very important that before you go to bed, the food you have eaten has moved out of the stomach. As you sleep in different postures, the stomach should not put pressure on other organs at any point.

另一方面是当你胃部满满就去睡觉时,它会挤压到腹部其他的器官。这同样也会导致各种各样的健康问题。正是因为这样,在你睡觉之前,你所吃的东西最好都移出胃部。当你以不同的姿势睡觉时,你的胃部任何时刻都不该挤压到别的器官。

 

使用你的身体

Use Your Body

 

When it comes to activity, one simple thing that we need to consider is that our body is capable of bending forward, bending backward, and twisting to both sides. This much activity must happen in some kind of form. Classical hatha yoga is the best way to do it, and a scientific one. If classical hatha yoga is not yet part of your life, you must somehow make sure that every day, you bend forward, backward, twist to both sides, and squat so that the spinal column is stretched. This is a must for everybody on a daily basis if you want to keep the entire system healthy – particularly the neurological system, which will otherwise be an issue as one ages.

说到身体活动,要考虑的一件简单的事是我们的身体能否向前弯,向后弯,向两侧旋转。这些基本的活动必须发生。古典哈他瑜伽是最好的也是一种科学的方式。如果古典哈他瑜伽还不是你生活的一部分,你必须确保每一天你都向前向后弯,向两侧扭动,下蹲拉伸你的脊椎。如果你想要保持你的整个身体系统健康——尤其是神经系统(随着年龄增长容易会变成问题)那就必须每天保持那样的锻炼。

 

充分的休息...不要过多

Get enough rest...but not too much

 

The volume of rest that an individual person needs is determined by various factors. One important factor is the type and the volume of food that you consume. You must experiment with different types of foods and see which ones make you feel heavy, and which ones leave you light and agile. If you make sure that at least 40% of your diet consists of fresh vegetables and fruits, there will be lightness in the body.

一个人需要休息多久是由多种因素决定的。一个重要的因素是你吃的食物种类和数量。你必须尝试吃不同种类的食物,去感受哪一种让你感觉沉重,哪一种让你觉得轻盈和敏捷。如果你确保你饮食的至少百分之四十是新鲜蔬菜和水果,你的身体将会变得轻盈。

 

What the body needs is restfulness, not necessarily sleep. It is a misunderstanding to think that sleep is the only way to rest. Even as you sit or stand, you can either be in a state of restfulness, in a state of agitation, or in a state of inertia. If you are in a lively state of restfulness, every moment of your life, the volume of sleep you require will decrease.

身体需要的是休息,不一定是睡眠。有一种误解是认为睡觉是唯一的一种休息方式。甚至你坐着或者站立,你也可以处在一种休息中,或一种烦乱中,或一种惰性中。如果在你生活的每一刻,你都处于一种活跃的宁静中,那么你所需要的睡眠时间会减少.

 

身体的五个层次

The Five Sheaths of the Body

 

In yoga, we look at the human system as five sheaths or layers. Every aspect of the human system, including the mind, is seen as body, and yoga is a technology to transform it. These five layers of the body are called Annamaya Kosha, Manomaya Kosha, Pranamaya Kosha, Vignanamaya Kosha, and Anandamaya Kosha.

在瑜伽中,人体系统分为五个鞘或者层次。人体系统的每一个方面,包括思想,都被视为一种身体,而瑜伽是一门转化它的技术。身体的五个层被称为食物体、心智体、能量体、以太体和喜乐体。

 

Anna means food. Your physical body or Annamaya Kosha is basically the food that you have eaten – small or big is your choice, but it is a heap of food nonetheless. As there is a physical body that you have gathered from outside, there is a mental body. The mind is not in one particular part of the body – every cell in the body has its own memory and intelligence. This mental body is known as Manomaya Kosha. The physical body is the hardware – the mental body is the software.

Anna意味着食物。你的肉身或食物体就是你所吃食物的累积——或大或小,这是你的选择,但这仅仅只是一堆食物。正如你的肉身是从外部积累而来,你的精神身亦是如此。头脑不是身体某一个特定的部分—身体里的每一个细胞都有它的记忆和智慧。这个精神身叫做心智体。肉身是硬件,精神身是软件。

 

If you bring the physical body, the mental body, and the energy body into proper alignment and balance, you will not have any physical or psychological ailments.

如果你的肉身、精神身、能量身得到适当的校准和平衡,你将不会有任何身体和心理疾病。

 

Hardware and software cannot do much unless you plug them into quality power. The third layer of the body is called Pranamaya Kosha or energy body. Physical body, mental body, and energy body are all in the realm of physicality, but on different levels of subtlety. To use an analogy – you can clearly see that a light bulb is physical. But the light it diffuses is also physical. And the electricity behind it is physical as well. Light bulb, light, and electricity: all are physical but differ in subtlety. Similarly, the physical body, the mental body, and the energy body are all physical but differ in subtlety.

硬件和软件只有被充了电才能使用。身体的第三层叫能量身。肉身、精神身、能量身都是属于物质层面的范畴,但是精微层次不同。打个比方—一颗灯泡很显然是物质层面的,但是光也是物理的,其背后的电也是物理的。灯泡、光、电都是物理层面的但精微层次不同。同样,肉身、精神身、能量身都是物质的但属于不同的精微层面。

 

The next layer of the body is a transitory body that is known as Vignanamaya Kosha. It facilitates the transition from the physical to the non-physical. It does not ascribe to any of the physical qualities, but at the same time, it is not yet completely nonphysical either. The fifth layer is called Anandamaya Kosha, which in English translates as “bliss body”. This does not mean there is a bubble of bliss in you. We call it bliss body because in our experience, whenever we touch it, we become blissful. Bliss is not its nature, bliss is what it causes for us. Anandamaya Kosha is a nonphysical dimension which is the source of everything that is physical.

下一层的身体是过度状态,被称为以太体。它是物质和非物质之间的连接。它既不具有物质层的特质,同时也不完全是超物质的。身体的第五层被称为“喜乐体”。这不是说你的内在有幸福的泡沫。我们称它为喜乐体是因为在我们的体验中,不论何时我们触及它,我们都会变得喜悦。喜悦不是其本质,而是它给我们带来的。喜乐体属于超越物质层面的维度,是一切物质的源头。

 

If you bring the physical body, the mental body, and the energy body into proper alignment and balance, you will not have any physical or psychological ailments. I could show you hundreds and thousands of people who have come out of their health issues – particularly chronic ailments and psychological problems – simply by creating the necessary alignment within themselves. It is misalignment that causes all kinds of problems. When the body is at ease, there is no disease.

如果你的肉身、精神身、能量身得到校准和平衡,你将不会有任何身体和心理上的问题。我可以向你展示成千上万的人从疾病中(尤其是慢性疾病和心理问题)走出来,仅仅只是因为内在得到了必要的校准。身体的问题都是源于校准的缺失。当身体自在了,就没有疾病了。

 

Only if you bring the first three layers of the body into alignment, there will be a passage and a possibility of touching Anandamaya Kosha, where blissfulness becomes a natural state of being. Not blissful about something in particular – simply blissful because that is the nature of life.

只有当你校准好肉身,精神身和能量身,才有通道和可能去触及喜乐体,这时喜悦将成为一种自然的存在状态。不是因一件特定的事而喜悦—而是能够单纯地喜悦着,因为那就是生活的本质。

 

爱与恩典
