If we consider obesity as a sickness on both physical and psychological levels, we might say that its roots are found in the quality of “beauty”, and the consequent distortion of it.
How can beauty be the origin of a sickness?
In our society beauty covers the meaning of “quality” in life, means desire, longing for wishes, represents the appearance, aesthetics, the image; an entire business-culture , is shaped out of it.
When someone is unable to get what he believes is beauty , generates a psychological, inner imbalance, which brings forth , a bent for illness.
This friction between the ideal and the reality, causes, ultimately the illness.
The Tibetan Master D.K. says that:” Many men are sick because they run after beauty, not knowing that beauty it is a divine quality, one of the many attributes of the Soul”
The real source of the beauty is unknown, to the average man, than, the inner friction, and the gap, appear.
Obesity is related to a lack of harmony in the workings of the planet Jupiter , in Astrology. Jupiter, the planet of expansion,
of growth, when is found in stress -position, in an astrological reading, causes overeating disorders, overweights, adipose tissues and obesities.
Jupiter, in the Soul-centered Astrology ,rules the constellation of Aquarius, and we are entering into this Era, we are in the very beginning.
This is one of the conclusions, I came, in order to explain the growing problem of obesity, in the western countries.
Children ,too, are affected by it, lately. An huge problem is growing in our planet,, along with the growth of the opposite one, such as anorexia. Anorexia, for good, has to do a lot, with beauty.
If we are open to the teachings of the spiritual sciences, perhaps , a solution is found.
Beauty is related to the heart-chakra and this chakra has to do with true Love, Love found only in Universal Brotherhood, in non-separatists tendencies, the Higher type of Love,and this may be the secret key to heal!
