10.1.2 Harmony and Peace Increase Beauty


When you start to cultivate a lifestyle in harmony with peace the prana becomes peaceful. When the pranas in the body are agitated it is very hard to move toward changing old habits that may reduce your natural beauty. Aggravated prana disturbs the mind and all the nadis. Once the nadis become disturbed, the nervous system becomes affected and physical blocks result. Blocks in the nadis, due to agitated prana, cause dysfunctions in the metabolism. Diseases of minor and major nature result from a disturbed metabolism.
Therefore, living as peacefully as possible, even if there is stress at home or at work, leads you to harmonize the pranas in the body. Peaceful living in turn generates more energy to change the bad habits that may cause a disagreeable external veneer over your natural beauty. Peaceful living is a choice that each person is capable of implementing. This is the first and most important step in revealing your natural beauty.

After peaceful living, speech becomes important. As stated earlier, we are often more concerned by what we out into our mouth than by what comes out of it. This is also one of the eight limbs of yoga - right speech. Being attentive to speak in a positive light, or not at all, increases access to prana, hence more vitality. Speaking badly or bitching diffuses your prana. Surely, we all have experienced meeting a nice looking person, perhaps even beautiful, who then starts bitching and saying nasty things. This way of speaking turns beauty into ugliness. Haven’t we all had this experience? Isn’t it clear how important to our beauty beautiful speech is? If this is not appropriate for the situation, leaving or remaining silent will maintain a high quality of undisturbed prana.
