We have seen that the way to purify the blood is to keep all the items in the blood as good items and in required quantity. What are the ingredients in the blood? There are a large number of ingredients in the blood. These can be segregated into five categories.
Some people may say that the food we eat gets converted into blood. This is partially correct. When the food we eat gets digested in the mouth, stomach and intestine, the nutrients in the food mix in the blood. Blood is not just the food we eat. Food alone does not directly get converted into blood. Food mixes some other items in the blood. These are items related to the earth. The food that we eat contains sugar (carbohydrate), protein, vitamins, minerals, etc. These are called earth-related items.
Some people say, “Food is the medicine.” It is true that food acts as medicine. But food alone cannot be the medicine. By properly digesting the food, diseases can be cured. But the diseases cannot be completely cured. If it is true that food alone is medicine, is it possible for us to survive just by eating the food alone in the proper way and keeping our nose closed? We eat food only thrice daily. But we breathe air for all 24 hours every day. Therefore, air is also a medicine. The air-related items such as hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, etc. reach the lungs through the nostrils and then mix with the blood. Thus, the air- related nutrients also mix with the blood.
The ingredients in the water we drink are separated by the kidney and they also mix with the blood. These are called water- related items. Thus, water-related nutrients also mix with the blood. Can we live without drinking water? No. Therefore, water is also a medicine.
Can we be healthy if we do not sleep for four days? Therefore, sleep is also a medicine. Through sleep, space power mixes with the blood. All the things in the world contain empty space. Even iron contains empty space. But it cannot be seen by naked eyes. This space power is present in the blood also. When this space power in the blood reduces, we will feel sleepy. When we sleep, this space power will increase in our blood and we will get energy. Therefore, sleep is also a medicine. No one can survive in this world without sleeping. Therefore, the body gets the energy called space power through the sleep.
The blood needs heat. Only if the blood is hot it will have potency. When we move our hands and legs, the muscles and limbs move which makes our body work and this kinetic energy becomes heat energy and mixes in the blood. If we keep sitting in the same place without moving our body, we will get boils and sores all over our body. There should always be movements in the body. We have to do physical work. The physical work gives heat to the blood.
Small children always tend to briskly do something instead of sitting at one place. If the blood is warm, we cannot sit idle. The warmth in the blood is the basis for a person’s briskness. Young people’s blood will always be warm. That is the reason why young people are always energetic and fast acting. If we learn the trick of how to keep our blood always warm, then we can be as brisk as a child even at the age of 100 years. Therefore, our blood gets fire energy through the physical work.
Our blood gets earth-related items from the food we eat. Water-related items come to our blood from the water we drink. Air- related items mix in our blood from the air we breathe. Through our sleep space- related items mix with the blood. Through our physical work fire-related items mix in our blood. So, in total, there are five types of items in the blood. These are the items concerned to earth, water, air, fire and space.
Therefore, the first secret is to learn how to properly digest the food we eat, convert it into good items and mix it in the blood. The second secret is to learn about how to drink the water so that the items in the water get digested well and mix in the blood as good things. The third secret is to learn how to breathe the air so that the things in the air get converted into good things and mix in the blood.
The fourth secret is to learn how to set right our sleep so that the space-related items obtained from the sleep are converted into good items and mix in the blood. The fifth secret is to learn how to work, how much to work so that the fire-related items obtained from the work get converted into good items and mix in the blood.
Thus, if we learn all the five tricks regarding how to make the items related to food, air, water, fire and space mix in the blood as good items and also in right quantity, and follow them, then all the items in the blood will be in good quality and in right quantity.
When all the things in the blood are of good quality and right quantity, blood will automatically be generated in the body. When the bone marrow gets all the items needed, it will create the first drop of good blood within 48 hours. Thus, new blood will be generated drop by drop and within 120 days, all the blood in our body will be new blood. Thus, when the blood in our body is totally converted into highly potent, purified, good blood, then all the body parts will cure themselves and also renew themselves.
At the beginning of this book, we had said that there is a gland in our body and all the diseases in the world can be cured with the liquid secreted by this gland. The name of this gland is bone marrow. The liquid secreted by this gland is the pure blood with all the ingredients in it in good quality and required quantity.
Thus, we can cure ourselves of all the diseases without any medicines, tablet or doctor just by purifying our blood. Now, we are going to learn how we can set right the five things namely eating food, drinking water, breathing air, work and sleep and convert them into good things in the blood.
