If we don’t know the real meaning of toxin, we would not know the proper way to detox.
Generally, there are two kinds of toxins. One is those come from the outside, and the another arises within the body. One is visible and the other is invisible.
For instance, food we eat, the air we breathe, light, radiation, and sound etc. are things that go into our body from the outside. On the other hands, negative thoughts, feelings, posture, and unhealthy habits are toxins that are invisible and arise within us.
Back in the days,people mainly suffered from toxins that came from outside such as poor sanitation, severe weathers, and starvation. However in this modern society, things such as stress, pollution, and junk food are toxicating our bodies, tainting our blood, and causing illness which can leads us to death.
Easy ways to reveal these invisible toxins are- checking our daily diet, posture, body movement, and the way we breathe.We can detox our body by being aware of these toxins and changing our daily habits.
This is what “detox” means at One Heart.
What is the meaning of balance?
On this earth, there are four seasons, four cardinal points, just like humans have four confucian virtues, four basic emotions, and four limbs.This is the teaching from nature, telling us to live in harmony.
So how do we live in harmony?
When in a high state, don’t be arrogant. When in a bottom of despair, don’t give up. In other words, we need to balance the yin and yang.
In order to live with balance and harmony, it is good to have 1/3 of space, just like we sleep 1/3 of our life time to restore energy. For instance, having 1/3 of spare time, financial savings, open space, and limiting the amount you eat are recommended to maintain balance.
At One Heart, we adjust the balance of mental health as we adjust the balance of diet.
Additionally, we need a center point to keep the balance because life is full of change. As we age, body conditions will change. As we move, the place of climate and culture will change. We aim to harmonize with these changes along with the flow of the universal nature and keep the center balance at its best.
What is circulation? Although your body is balanced and toxin free, you cannot say you’re alive if there is no “circulation”, or “movement”.
“Circulation” means being alive with full of energy and endless “movement”. More specifically, circulation ments that our blood, lymph fluid, and oxygen circulate smoothly within our body. Also, it means that your thoughts, feelings, and joints are well balanced. To look at the big picture of the circulation, human relationship is the circulation and movement itself between you and an outside of the world.
If your “circulation” is unhealthy and having an unbalanced habit, it creates toxin and you may burst your anger and grudges towards others, hurting the people around you. One Heart aims to remove such toxin, and live in harmony with your movement and circulation.
