The meaning of Anuttara is perfect balance, the incomparably, completely and fully awakened mind; it is the attribute of buddhas. Anuttara Samyak Sambodhi is a Sanskrit phrase meaning “perfect universal samadhi.” According to the Kwan Um School of Zen, this term refers to “the enlightenment experience in which a person becomes a Buddha.” Anuttara is the highest aim we can focus on when we practice spirituality.
In Tao and in Tanta we want to awaken and balance our Masculine (Yang, Shiva, Plus) Energies and our Feminine (Yin, Shakti, Minus) Energies in order heal, to be whole. When we are whole and thereby balanced we are ready to awaken the strong middle Energy. If we are bestowed with Grace can we sense Anuttara from our highest level of consciousness, at the top of our head –the Crown Chakra.
As we evolve we seek higher forms of consciousness. These are the goal and meaning of Spirituality, and bestow the seeker a high degree of “Meaning of Life”.
Becoming WHOLE is a constant process, we humans (as the entire manifestation) are always in a battle with the forces of entropy, to be whole, to heal is a constant process of homeostasis. Homeostasis means balance or keep stable in an ever changing universe where we are constant objected to entropy, please view the short film, where Professor Brian Cox explains beautiful about entropy, “How a sandcastle reveals the end of al things” at the link here
Metaphor of this film and healing is: our body is the sand castle and the wind is the conditions of life.
To maintain homeostasis and being robust and deal with entropy, studies have shown that our sense of “Meaning of Life” are vital for our surviving. If we have meaning in our life’s, we automatically seek “Understanding” and we seek to “Mange” the conditions and stressors of life. To heal, to seek to be whole always starts with finding “Meaning of Life.” When our life has meaning do we urge to take care of us self’s, care for our WELLNESS -eat healthy, care for our bodies, mind and soul.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Each of these seven dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to our own quality of life.
- Social Wellness is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world. Our ability to establish and maintain positive relationships with family, friends and co-workers contributes to our Social Wellness.
- Emotional Wellness is the ability to understand ourselves and cope with the challenges life can bring. The ability to acknowledge and share feelings of anger, fear, sadness or stress; hope, love, joy and happiness in a productive manner contributes to our Emotional Wellness.
- Spiritual Wellness is the ability to establish peace and harmony in our lives. The ability to develop congruency between values and actions and to realize a common purpose that binds creation together contributes to our Spiritual Wellness.
- Environmental Wellness is the ability to recognize our own responsibility for the quality of the air, the water and the land that surrounds us. The ability to make a positive impact on the quality of our environment, be it our homes, our communities or our planet contributes to our Environmental Wellness.
- Occupational Wellness is the ability to get personal fulfillment from our jobs or our chosen career fields while still maintaining balance in our lives. Our desire to contribute in our careers to make a positive impact on the organizations we work in and to society as a whole leads to Occupational Wellness.
- Intellectual Wellness is the ability to open our minds to new ideas and experiences that can be applied to personal decisions, group interaction and community betterment. The desire to learn new concepts, improve skills and seek challenges in pursuit of lifelong learning contributes to our Intellectual Wellness.
