A perspective on how emotions affect health...
You are not a drop in the ocean, but an ocean in every drop...said Rumi.
What did he mean by that... every cell in our body is intelligent to think and act.
We have 60 trillion cells in our body, and our health depends a lot on the harmonic balance and cohesion of the cells with each other...
In the movie Eat, Pray Love, Julia Roberts visits a wise man in Bali, and he advises her not to try too hard to meditate.. in fact he suggests that medidation is nothing but smiling and the line that is a kicker, is " Smile with your liver "
If you believe that this is just a metaphor, lets look at the other end of the spectrum, to prove just how crucial this is..
Let us say you hold a negative emotion towards somebody, something or some event in your life... each time you think of that your whole body relives the emotional upheaval of that association..
Your mind doesn't have a mind of its own, and doesn't know if the event is happening in real time or it is being replayed..
So it produces the same stress hormores namely cortisol.. each and every cell of your body starts feeling the same emotion of let us say "hatred" towards that event, person or experience all over again...
The body isn't at ease.. this is a state where the condition of dis-ease sets in....
If you continue to live in that state, your cells are now getting conditioned to live in the same state...
Health of a person, depends on how well all the systems of the body and the 60 trillion cells play the melody of harmony together..
When the cells are living in a state of hatred.. they soon start exhibiting that with each other and killing healthy cells in the body...This leads to many forms of auto immune disease...
Like Rumi said.. you are a drop in the ocean, you are an ocean in every drop...
Be careful of your thoughts, your feelings and your emotions...
Forgive people,not because they deserve it, but because you need it...Stay happy, stay healthy.
Note: got the above lovely piece of truth from a friend, which I liked, and felt like sharing with the sangat here.

Lostwarrior1234 jee, you call a gursikh to that person, who comes near and gets involved with a married woman and with children?
Please just do not throw dirt on such a paviter shabad like Gurikh.
A Gursikh if true and unmarried, he does not look at all even, on married women, forget about getting entangled with one even.
For a Gursikh, if the lady is younger, he looks at her as a daughter, if same, than as a sister, and if elder, than as a mother. These are his true remarks, purity above all and utter love for Wahiguru, and with constant fear in mind, for not doing any such thing, which can bring shame on him, before Him.
You say you can take chaurasee smilingly...just think for a while, do you remember who were your familily, spouse, children or parents in your last few births? And what was your joonee?
If no is the answer, then are you sure, you will recognize him? What about if, the joonees you go, is subhuman joonee, like animals, plant kingdom or insects, for example....
Chaurasee lakh joonee , is not like going for romance on a vaccation spot.
This human form is given to us, for the only purpose of reuniting ourselves wih Him, so if instead of getting out of chaurasee, we do some karam to be stuck into maya, then, what a shame.
He gave us the key to get out from the vast prison house, and we on the contrary, throw away the key and deliberately lock the door of that prison fromm inside.
Then too, when we suffer the consequences of karam, we shamelessly say, why me Wahiguru?
Sat Sree Akal.
Yes, that's exactly how those things work as well. The solution to crazy fetishes is not act on them, if everyone acted on their fetishes freely our world would be broken. There are some sick-minded people in the world who have very dirty minds.
Even though I don't know what happened to this site, I do think that at the time, you could try alternatives, when Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji's online website Srigranth.org was down, I had to find the banis elsewhere. You could try AKJ's many websites.
hanji USA based, if only i knew which gurudwara ..i cud contact them
this site has been mentioned in this forum few times ( below are the posts mentioning longislandkeertan site). Infact, a memeber of this forum is/was the member of longislandkeertan.
maybe someone is able to contact them and wud know whether the content has been moved to another site?
