A poor state of health can only produce a weak body which then creates a confused & weak mind.
How can one pursue one’s dreams, face the hardships of life and/or give birth to the life that one wants in such a state?
The one who masters him/herself goes beyond the simple knowing of the self. He/she has a strong mind resting on the shoulders of a strong & healthy body with all the stamina needed & required to master his/her life.
The seasons pass, the body adapts.
The student learns, the master thrives.
