Recharging Vitality

Author:

Val enjoys writing prose in rhymes by always leaving a message of a life truism in each piece.

Introduction

As long as we are treating our bodies as merely a bunch of organs that need a repair from time to time -- we're missing the essence of who we are as energy beings. So called progressive medicine is coming to that realization more and more, recognizing mind and body being more connected than it was ever believed before.

Some of those medical theorists go as far as to suspect that body is but another aspect of mind. And if you would visit a practitioner of the ancient healing modality called Ayurveda, they are not bound to ask you "where your body is hurting -- but "where your life is hurting".

However, lay folks are not inclined to buy the story of "mind over body", because that dumps the responsibility for their health right on their lap. Instead, they prefer doctors and nutritionists to give them pills to do all fixing -- although in most of those cases only symptoms are being addressed, not underlying causes.

Your body is not "deficient on statin tablets" when your cholesterol is high, and with a normal diet most people are not deficient on micro nutrients. Think sometimes how Inuit people of the Far North are not extinct yet with their diet not including any fruits and veggies.

Getting back to ourselves as energy beings, well, we might as well see in what aspects we are living on a "tiny flame", having forgotten what in our youth was generating an "inferno".

The next pieces of my prose in rhymes are offering a little hint of how to go about it.

Which is to explain why I am calling them "prose" -- since this, and many other of my pieces are not typical themes for poetry, and I am simply using that form to make the text easier to read. Call it modesty if you will, but I am not calling it poetry, only "rhymes".

Youthfulness Waiting For Revival

Those were the days of cigarettes and wine

with nights of easy women and dirty jokes

singing with guitars and just feeling fine

serious life looking like one big hoax.


Now all those goodies of youth if taken aside

somehow we managed to produce that joy

out of thin air, by our inner spirited guide

one that made every task look like a toy.


How did we give it up to collect dust

burying youthful enthusiasm and zeal

switching from horniness to secret lust

turning all our life into one habitual ordeal.


No, it's not our hormones cowardly betraying

but our mind-styles that are making them less

so that instead of singing, dancing, and playing

we visit our doctors complaining about our stress.


We excel at politics and thrive on bitching

feasting, but worried about naked survival

nervously scratching without even itching

oblivious to joy of youth waiting for revival.


So let us revamp those times of a fun

when life was much more than surviving

as long as there's a spirit we are not done

life journey is about moving, not about arriving.

Unless a woman has an amorous heart, she is a dull companion.

-- Samuel Johnson

Amorousness, Our Life Booster

Great poet Petrarca had Laura in his dreams

and every laureate ever making name big

got amorous wings more than it seems

so let's tear down that shy leaf of fig.


No need for Freud or Reich to get educated here

for amorous passion is well known to us all

but let's make something perfectly clear

without it whole life comes to a crawl.


As long as body thinks we're into procreating

it gives us a great stamina, vitality and zeal

unfortunately it's this readiness for mating

that makes us vibrant and able to heal.


Amorously active or just in a mood for love

recharges our batteries beyond admitting

and every time we hear a call of a dove

it's to remind us not to plan a quitting.


It's said we're only as young as we feel

our whole life propelled by that emotion

with amorousness not losing that appeal

we'll forever use it as a youthfulness potion.


With mind and hormones playing in a team

we can replenish some with horny thoughts

whole life will love it more than it may seem

it doesn't take a science to connect the dots.

Those Confusing Self-Help Options

When we've succumbed under life's pressure

we could reach for some home made repairs

those tips sounding like therapeutic treasure

but often consisting of many opposite pars.


Who hasn't heard yet of that popular advice

to let go of the past and live in now and here

but while it might all sound so smart and nice

with no memory our identity seems to disappear.


And in strenuous activities we'll "sweat troubles out"

all those bad energies that are trapped deep inside

yes, but it could also raise some thoughts of doubt

with advice to "relax it all away"-- by another guide.


They also say emotional issues should be faced

for how do we heal without knowing what's wrong

all until we hear that all those emotions get erased

by our ignoring them and insisting on feeling strong.


And "don't keep your anger inside and unexpressed"

it could be so detrimental to your overall well being

but shouldn't all its reasons be first well addressed

because anger disappears with our clear seeing.


Now, what's good for one may not be good for other

so experiment a little -- that would be my own tip

and somehow you'll get rid of what may bother

as long as a shrink's option you can skip.
