The Rake Philosophy – 10 Min’s to Total Mind-Body-Spirit Connection!

The Way Of The Rake

Many years ago in the southern regions of a land far away lived a man by the name of Hewko. A poor man by providential state but rich in Mind, Body and Spirit.

“Relationships” he would say, “are the true paths to wealth of soul, peace of mind and health of body”.

And,

“Relaxation is not for pillows as pillows are not for the relaxed”!

Many seemingly wise and yet puzzling things he did say. . . leaving the disciples who sought him no further along in wisdom than before. No more peace of mind than a rabbit in the wild afraid to venture out of its hole for fear of being eaten. No less confused and no more focused on their self imposed task because they failed to act.

But they sought him out all the same as all seekers must seek someone other than themselves to “show” them “the way”!

The way of ‘The Rake’ clears all pathways that are unclear due to the fallen leaves of time

And what of you dear reader. . . do you also seek the spiritual healing that comes with the words of the Great Sage Hewko? Be of good cheer- the secret lies in the essence and foundation of The Rake! “The Way of the Rake”, as Hewko would say, “clears all pathways that are unclear due to the fallen leaves of time”; and I will share with you in a very few words the philosophy of The Rake and how you can apply it this very day with no further delay of peace to mind, depth to soul and life to body.

“Just as the pathway of the forest is obscured by the leaves that fall there on. . . so also our minds are unclear by the task that fall upon our minds”. Too much technology, too many Business opportunities, too many bills to pay and just too many places to be and things to do. We are overwhelmed, our minds are cluttered, we do not exercise, we do not sleep. . . we know what we must do but do not!

Meditation is a straw that eludes the grasp; yoga is an exercise of mind and body that does not always satisfy; crystals are debated, set on shelves and forgotten; and when feeling sluggish conventional medicine offers no cure- we seek “holistic” and/or “alternative medicines only to find more “alternatives” to the “alternatives”! Hewko would not deny all of the above as potential healing sources of mind, body and spirit. . . but one must first develop the discipline of The Rake!

The Mind Body Spirit connection is Earth connected. . .

All religions teach the importance of the Spirit Earth connection. The Bible says in the creation story of Genesis, “with labor and toil shalt thou eat thereof all the days of thy life”. Man continually shirks his duty as “husband” of the land and wonders why he feels so lethargic. The sowing and reaping of years gone by is more and more distant from the lives of modern man. Hewko says, “Reach into the soil of your own backyard and grow something”!

The Way of the Rake is nothing more than the rake you can buy at the local hardware store. . . take rake in hand and touch the Earth! Mind, Body and Spirit unite in that one simple action and you are centered, balanced and whole. The rake is literal but only part of it. Cultivate the earth, plant the seed and help it grow! The law of sowing and reaping has always been taught since the beginning of time through the planting of seed and is the foundation for all business and romance.

If you are unable to find your way through religion. . . rake! If you are unable to quite the mind. . . rake! If you are overwhelmed with bills, business and the cares of this world. . . rake!

Unplug from TV and computer, go outside and touch the Earth. Today’s modern man allocates these basic life giving energies to other men who regard these God given privileges as nothing more than a 9 – 5 J.O.B. How can we be sure our Mind, Body and Spiritual sufferings are nothing more than self imposed when we go for months and, for some, years without rolling in the hay?

The man of religious conviction who studies the Bible and yet avoids his “curse” can no more expect God to answer his prayers than he can expect tomatoes to grow where he has not prepared the soil. Back to the land should be our motto. Home grown should be the description given the vegetables on our table. And the law of sowing and reaping should be the first law written on our hearts. . . Mind, Body and Spirit begins where the salad grows.

Mind-Body-Spirit Wellness And The Search For Powerful New Health

The mind-body-spirit debate has developed into a well known researched fact over the past decade. While there has always been some amount of contribution given to the mindset of any patient, only recently has the concept of caring for the “entire self” become a common practice in today’s modern medicine and prevention programs. Mind-body-spirit wellness has reached new levels of inclusive factors for today’s health conscious individuals. Holistic health has finally reached acceptance in many offices of doctors and practitioners of medicine.

The power of caring for one’s entire body is really quite impressively powerful. Individuals who have opted for total mind-body-spirit wellness have been able to determine great levels of health and energy within their own framework by allowing their entire being into account. Studies on the power of the mind have shown some shocking results, the effects have been proven to be of course, mind-blowing.

Holistic health is essential in providing high quality total care for your self, your family, and your overall well being. Studies have proven that holistic health practices have dramatically reduced the number and frequency of illnesses related to common every day exposure. School children living in mind-body-spirit wellness focused homes miss less than half of the school days due to illness than that of their classmates still living in traditional Western medicine focused homes.

Accounts of real world individuals being able to provide testimony to the effects of holistic health practices on their daily lives are continuously increasing. Many individuals offer that the mind-body-spirit wellness approach to life has given them not only their physical health back, but their emotional health as well. For those who place more emphasis on the testimony of physicians and health care practitioners, there are an increasing number of offices that practice mind-body-spirit wellness as part of their routine care.

Holistic health and the mind-body-spirit wellness approach to life has also opened up a while new industry for the entrepreneurial spirit. Many manufacturers feel that it has been nothing short of a blessing to fully endorse their product without doubting the word of their advertisers. There is a vast and endless ocean of new and improved products which adhere to holistic health practices and principles which have emerged onto the market as of late, and for the most part, these products actually do what they say they are going to do. Of course, we wouldn’t be an enterprising society if a few unscrupulous manufacturers didn’t sneak in there for their piece of this multi billion dollar industry. Our culture responded appropriately by deeming specific authorities on the topic to be the final word in quality and effectiveness.
