-by Angelo Druda

 A new plague has struck the world. It is the cause of more than one of every four health complaints in the United States, the leading cause of death in Japan, among the top five reasons people call their doctors, and directly contributes to early death more than any other factor. 

The lethal killer is not a virus or bacteria, although it severely weakens the body’s defenses against these invaders. It is not the result of poor diet, lack of exercise, or failure to reduce stress. It is a lack of joy, the lack of sufficient daily bliss to bring about psychological and physical health, and I call it “Delight Deficiency Syndrome.

Paul Pearsall

The Pleasure Prescription

 Nothing shortens a human life more than chronic unhappiness. Love and bliss, true bodily pleasure, real happiness – they are the human’s principal food, the primary and most effective medicine for everyone. Unhappiness, in all its many forms, short-circuits the body’s chemistry, stressing our organs and stagnating the body’s energy. Over time, it can create patterns of imbalance more profound than any we might get through improper diet or a lack of exercise. 

Many years ago, I served as a health team member for a small religious community. Though sweet and benign, the people were living an essentially puritanical way of life, suppressing their bodily energy in order to conform themselves to their religious quest. Over time, this suppression of energy caught up with them, and the community began to see abnormally high rates of disease and sickness. The women particularly suffered, always hormonally out of balance and full of gynecological complaints, some quite severe. Observing this pattern, I learned a great lesson about the importance of joy and happiness to basic health. I began to understand the deadly effects of suppressing enjoyment, even – and perhaps especially – when in pursuit of a great idealistic goal.   

Among all the common factors in longevity cultures, those societies where human beings demonstrate the longest life spans, it is the fundamental happiness of their lives that stands out the most. These people do not live self indulgent lives – quite the contrary. They eat simple and clean foods, they exercise regularly, they live in environmentally clean areas and this all contributes to their well being.  The key however, is that they live happy lives, surrounded by loving, supportive and cooperative family and friends. And it is this happiness which is the fundamental healing elixir that prolongs their days.  

There is no reason, no justification, for denying our bodies their principal food. The body heals and rejuvenates itself when it is infused with life and love. This happy,  pleasurable, love full circumstance is the place where our optimal regenerative potential is realized and unlocked. And its foundation is this – the great ancient healing secret, the underlying core of all true religion, philosophy, and medicine: 

Be full of love. Be full of love for each other and for all creatures and beings.  Be full of love for the Great Process in which we all inhere. Be rightly disciplined and straight – but only in a way that serves your health and well-being, your compassion and feeling, your capability to live and love. Always be loose and relaxed, in communion, to whatever degree you can, with the essential happiness of existence itself. 

Such living combines us with the body’s deepest regenerative powers, it makes us good and useful company for our fellow human beings, and it changes our lives altogether.  

Happy Holidays to Everyone on the Beautiful Planet Earth
