The Indian wisdom of antiquity claims that we, humans, are made up of five elemental forces of the universe––Water, Earth, Ether, Fire, and Air, or WEEFA. By combining these five elements, universal nature has created life, which reflects the cosmic dynamism of eternity. The purest essence of natural living that flows through our brain and body emulates the universal expansion model, allowing us to expand our body (to a point) and mind (infinitely).
Somewhere in the world’s imperfect reality, the river of our lives becomes tainted with the adulterant of negative elements of human progress. As modern civilization began to deviate from its natural way of life, the recent global healthcare crisis opened our eyes to the bleak future that awaits us if we continue on this path of self-destruction.
In this way, we have not only harmed the ecology, and environment, and fractured the simple society respecting farmers––its only producers of natural, fresh, and organic food––by seeking monetary affluence, material lifestyle, and a living burdened with fast and junk food, unhealthy work-life and habits, modern disease like hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and so on, but we have also lessened our own odds of long-term survival.
Now is the time to return to the only saviour––the natural essence in its purest form––while respecting the synergic life force of all the five fundamental elements in us, established as WEEFA Wellness Solutions by Ravindra Prasad, who serves as its Chairman.
