a friend requested  this repeat


I take the act of balancing to heart
and use anything I can as a part
of keeping it all together as a whole
it's the best way to treat my soul

If you use the principle doshas of vata,
pitta, and kapha, you can keep a better
relationship between the knower, and
the known.

One way is to use rishi (your inner self)
devata(your senses, process of knowing)
and chhandas(The known)

Maharishi Ayur-Veda regards  the doshas
as expressions of these  deeper structures
so that, going to bed early, eating at proper
times, etc balance vata. Just as sitting by a
waterfall, or similar refreshment (pitta) are
aids to health,  and will awaken your full

All of these teachings are affirmations
of things I remember my mother teaching
 us. Perhaps you too remember, and  it was also taught in school in early grades

"Early to bed, early to rise, makes a
person healthy wealthy and wise." So
it's nice to know that no matter the nation,
we all seem to have similar education,
in maxim's.
And let us not forget, for real balance:

"On morning wings how active springs
the mind that leaves the load of yesterday
Alexander Pope

Is that "vata" sort of like Karma, yin & yang, pro's & con's and such but more of an Indian (India) type of thing...? It seems it to me and is interestingly different from Karmic but the same at the same time...Ed

I never would have guessed you would know about the Vedas and "balancing the qualities" - I've read on this and try to use these principals (not always so easy when you live alone!)I had an Indian tea called "Tri-alpha" (made of 3 Indian fruits with strange names!)It seemed to balance me and make me feel well, but can't get it anymore in Florida
You're pretty "out there" and "IN there" at the same time...
