TAO Wisdom to Cope with Myasthenia Gravis

Life is forever changing. A static life is not worth living. Ironically enough, many people resist any change in their lives; they desire consistency and stability. Unfortunately, whether you like it or not, changes are inevitable as you continue to age. You may develop diseases, such as myasthenia gravis. The only ways to cope with life changes is adaptability and acceptance.

Adaptability is changing the mind's perception of the change and challenge you confront, and act or react accordingly to the circumstances. This mental perception requires awareness, without which actions or reactions may not take place, because often times changes are slow, gradual, and even subtly imperceptible. Awareness means knowing why and how changes are taking place. with Myasthenia  
.“We need a still and composed mind
to see things with greater clarity.
Because trouble begins in the mind
with small and unrelated thoughts.
So, we carefully watch the mind
to stop any trouble before it begins.”
(Chapter 64, Tao Te Ching)

Acceptance is taking the responsibility of the results of the actions or reactions taken. Acceptance may not be easy, especially if you have a pre-conditioned mindset of expectation or comparing the condition before and after the change.

Both adaptability and acceptance requires wisdom -- the wisdom to know and understand that nothing is permanent because everything remains only with that very present moment, and that everything follows a natural cycle, such as success .

"Success and failure are no more than expressions of the human condition.

So, accept both gracefully and willingly, with no judgment, no preference.
The Creator loves us unconditionally, irrespective of our success or failure.
What is meant by “accept both gracefully and willingly”?
Success is avoiding failure; avoiding failure is seeking success.
Both originate from fear and pride: the sources of human suffering.
Seeing ourselves indiscriminately as everything, including success and failure,
we see not only the manifestations but also the mysteries of the creation.
(Chapter 13, Tao Te Ching)

TAO wisdom is profound human wisdom based on not acquisition of knowledge but self-intuition of the nature of things. Through this self-enlightenment, one become wise, and accordingly knows how to live one's life as if everything is a miracle. Click here to find out more about Tao wisdom..

Relaxation to Overcome Myasthenia Gravis Symptoms

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease as a result of a dysfunctional immune system. The hallmark of myasthenia gravis is muscle weakness. To cope with the disease symptoms in the limbs and the eyes, learn to relax. Nowadays, the human mind is often too preoccupied with thoughts and worries about career, money, children, relationships, health, and social responsibilities that it is almost impossible to slow down. A compulsive mind is the underlying cause of many human diseases, including myasthenia gravis.

First and foremost, get rid of a compulsive mind, which is the underlying cause of stress, which is a complex problem involving the body's response to increased mental tension, which is a byproduct of modern living. Knowing how to relax is the only solution to this complex body-mind problem that may inhibit the natural cure of myasthenia gravis disease symptoms.

Relax with mindfulness

Mindfulness is a way of being—it has been around for millennia. Mindfulness is deliberate presence of mind in a non-judgmental way, often focusing on something apparently insignificant, such as our breathing. Mindfulness is letting go of doing, at least for now, and learning how to be in the present moment.

As an illustration, you have been diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, and you feel distressed and distraught. Instead of taking drastic actions to cope with the disease symptoms, you let yourself to be doing less, but noticing more, with the ultimate objective of probe into your mind to release wisdom on how to deal with your myasthenia gravis. Mind empowering is important to recovery and recuperation from any disease. Read my book: As If Everything Is A Miracle to find out how to use the body, the mind, and the spirit to live as if everything is a miracle in your life.

Mindfulness begins with breathing. Be mindful of your breathing is the first step towards learning how to be mindful of everything around you. Notice how you breathe in and breathe out. We all breathe, but not many of us are mindful of our breaths, that is, how we breathe.

Relax by way of Zen

Learn how to relax by way of Zen by taking a holistic, practical, and honest approach to relaxation, which involves the body, the mind, and the spirit. Relaxation is not about taking a holiday, going fishing, watching a movie, or reading a book. According to Zen, relaxation is an integral part of life, without which there is no ultimate stress relief.

Learn how to deal with life's natural flow, and how to go along with it; that is, going around life's problems, instead of confronting them head on. It is all about spontaneity of living. Spontaneity is embracing all life problems; in any life situation, you can be either a student or a teacher, and make the most out of it.

Remember, according to Zen, life is simple, and never a problem. If life is a problem, it is because YOU have created the problem for yourself. If there is no problem, then why do you need a solution? Fixing a non-existing problem in life is only creating more problems for yourself.

Learn how to relax by acquiring the wisdom of neither avoiding problems in life, nor seeking solutions to problems that may not even have existed in the first place.

Start Zen: Learn the healing art of Zen meditation. Free yourself from the thoughts and emotions that are holding you back in your life. Dramatically improve the quality of your life by enhancing the quality of your mind.

Relax with natural sleep

Sleep relaxes and rejuvenates both the body and the mind. Natural sleep is a natural human instinct for relaxation of muscles. According to Chinese medicine, natural sleep is holistic health and wellness. .

In a CNN news report, sleep deprivation affects the size of your brain. In the article, Dr. Neal Maru, a neurologist and sleep specialist with Integrated Sleep Services in Alexandria, Virginia, says: “Poor sleep can affect our immune system, our cardiovascular health, weight, and, of course, memories.” Indeed, insomnia is an immune system wrecker. Therefore, it is important to have natural sleep to protect your immune system to alleviate, if not to cure, your myasthenia gravis disease symptoms. 

Given that sleep is a natural process, it is against nature to artificially induce sleep with medications. Do not use sleep medicine to overcome insomnia. The reason is that all pharmaceutical drugs are loaded with toxic chemicals that further damage your compromised immune system.

Take Control of Your Health and Escape the Sickness Industry: is an informative and inspirational book by Elaine Hollingsworth, the movie-star-turned-heath-crusader, who explains in detail how understanding dangerous drugs, unreliable medical tests, and often-times unnecessary procedures may help you escape the sickness industry through healthy sleep and natural health. Do not fall into the trap of the sickness industry by taking more dangerous drugs, such as sleep medications, which not only are dangerous but also create the drug-dependence.

The Miracle of Self-Healing

Albert Einstein once said: "There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle." So, believe in self-healing, and live your life as if everything is a miracle—including the miracle to heal yourself of myasthenia gravis. Yes, self-healing is a miracle of life.

Ironically enough, modern Western medicine has led many of us to believe that healing is a complex process, involving high technology, complex drugs, and state-of-the-art procedures. It is human nature to learn belief systems, theories, and facts without challenging them. Truly, medical professionals are experts in their respective fields, and, obviously, they not only know more than we do but also have more experience than we have. However, that does not imply that we should readily accept their opinions without fully understanding what they are. Unfortunately, many of us are doing just that—going along with what they say, despite the many mistakes, even fatal ones, made by these professionals. As a matter of fact, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, more than 100,000 Americans died in hospitals from dangerous drugs or from their dangerous medication side effects in 1998. 

To make the miracle of self-healing a reality for your immune disease, understand the essentials of self-healing.

The Power of the Mind

Healing begins with the mind first.

The mind is powerful in that it is the origin of all your thoughts, which determine not only who you are but also how you experience life. Life is a journey of experiences, throughout which the mind plays a pivotal part. Whether an individual is going to be healthy, successful, or happy in life depends on the power of mind. Mind power is the essence of being. Mind power holds the key to recovery from any disease, including your from your immune disease. Every thought counts in self-healing.

If you wish to combat, if not to cure yourself of, an autoimmune disease, you must first of all have the intent to heal, without which there is no self-cure or self-healing, and your battle against the autoimmune disease is already half-lost.

With intent, come concentration and focus to seek self-help to empower yourself with knowledge of self-healing, without which you may be at a loss as to what to do. Out of ignorance, many simply turn to conventional medicine for treatment; unfortunately, it may be a case of jumping from the frying pan into the fire.

Mind power is also evidenced in its capability to create "reality." Yes, it is all in the mind, and it is always mind over matter.

A powerful mind can produce positive thoughts, which affect not just your body and your emotions, but also your genes. According to scientific studies, how your mind processes your daily experiences can turn on or turn off a particular gene responsible for a particular ailment or disease. In other words, there is a close body-mind connection with respect to health and healing.

Utilize your mind power to create the “reality” of healing for your autoimmune disease. That is, you need visualization, which is the ability to see “reality” in your mind’s eye. Seeing is believing: “seeing” the positive result of your efforts through positive images reinforces your “believing” that you will be cured of your myasthenia gravis.

The road to health and recovery from an autoimmune disease is never direct or smooth: it is always paved with roadblocks and obstacles in the form of relapses and remission. As a result, you will need determination and perseverance before you can reach your goal of self-healing.

Given the uniqueness of each individual's physical and physiological makeup, you must use your imagination and creativity to devise your own methods of self-cure for your myasthenia gravis.

Visualization is a powerful tool for enhancing your mind power for mind healing to initiate the subsequent body healing. That is,  manifestation of the mind may begin to manifest itself in the body healing. 

Visualization Power: shows you how athletes, healers, scientists, businessmen, yogis achieve their success through their thinking mind.

Be Grateful for What You Have

Gratitude is an important element in the art of living well. That said, it is not easy to express gratitude  if one is diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, such as myasthenia gravis. One often asks: "Why me?" This feeling of unfairness may create a negative mindset that ultimately becomes a stumbling block to recovery. 

I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis more than two decades ago, and I have learned many life lessons from it. 

Get this book from Amazon: “Be A Better And Happier You With Tao Wisdom.” 

This 132-page book is based on the profound human wisdom expressed in “Tao Te Ching” written by Lao Tzu, an ancient sage from China. BE A BETTER AND HAPPIER YOU WITH TAO WISDOM not only contains the translation in simple English of the complete text of this 5,000-word immortal classic, but also shows you how to attain true human wisdom through asking self-intuitive questions, creating an empty mindset with reverse thinking to let go of the ego-self to become a better and happier you. 

If you are a better person, you will be happier and live longer. Find out how the ancient wisdom from China some 2600 years ago will help you change your mindset to live as if everything is a miracle. Human wisdom and happiness play a pivotal role in the prevention as well as the management of an autoimmune disease.
