My life is changing, not the continual change that is always there—the arrow of time—but a dramatic shift that recognises the true me. This has been coming at me as a raging bull, something I can no longer ignore. In order to embrace it I need to acknowledge who I have been, who I am and who I am becoming. I am Purusha: Spiritual Man.
In my life I have been a seeker. As a teenager I sought a spiritual answer to an unknown question. I tried to understand where to look for the answer. What did I want? Why was I even looking? In the different approaches I tried, from Christianity to Yoga, I found many ideas to pursue, but no solutions.
Obesity is almost a swear word, it is not something you say about someone to their face. What is obesity? What is it all about other than you are fat? What does it mean for men? How serious a problem is it?
A definition of obesity is that it is “a condition characterized by the excessive accumulation and storage of fat in the body” (Merriam-Webster). It is when a person’s “weight is higher than what is considered healthy for a given height, as measured by the Body Mass Index (BMI)” (Centers For Disease Control and Prevention).
What does it mean to trust someone? What is honor and how is it related to deep respect? Is it necessary for them to do what you think is right? What do they need to do to gain that trust and respect?
The answer seems to be that they do not need to do anything. The key to trust is what you do yourself and how you view other people. Your ego can destroy your ability to respect others and can fool you into thinking that you are right and the other person is wrong—therefore untrustworthy.
