Art of Well Being by Dr Drauzio Varello

...Speak your feelings.

Emotions and feelings that are hidden, repressed, end in illnesses as: gastritis, ulcer, lumbar pains, spinal. With time, the repression of the feelings degenerates to the cancer. Then, we go to a confidante, to share our intimacy, ours “secret”, our errors! The dialogue, the speech, the word, is a powerful remedy and an excellent therapy!

...Make Decisions.

The undecided person remains in doubt, in anxiety, in anguish. Indecision accumulates problems, worries and aggressions. Human history is made of decisions. To decide is precisely to know to renounce, to know to lose advantages and values to win others. The undecided people are victims of gastric ailments, nervous pains and problems of the skin.

…Find Solutions.

Negative people do not find solutions and they enlarge problems. They prefer lamentation, gossip, pessimism. It is better to light a match that to regret the darkness. A bee is small, but produces one of the sweetest things that exist. We are what we think. The negative thought generates negative energy that is transformed into illness.

…Don’t Live By Appearances.

Who hides reality, pretends , poses and always wants to give the impression of being well. He wants to be seen as perfect, easy-going, etc. but is accumulating tons of weight. A bronze statue with feet of clay. There is nothing worse for the health than to live on appearances and facades. These are people with a lot of varnish and little root. Their destiny is the pharmacy, the hospital and pain.


The refusal of acceptance and the absence of self-esteem, make us alienate ourselves. Being at one with ourselves is the core of a healthy life. They who do not accept this, become envious, jealous, imitators, ultra-competitive, destructive. Be accepted, accept that you are accepted, accept the criticisms. It is wisdom, good sense and therapy.


Who does not trust, does not communicate, is not opened, is not related, does not create deep and stable relations, does not know to do true friendships. Without confidence, there is not relationship. Distrust is a lack of faith in you and in faith itself.

…Do Not Live Life Sad.

Good humor. Laughter. Rest. Happiness. These replenish health and bring long life. The happy person has the gift to improve the environment wherever they live. “Good humor saves us from the hands of the doctor”. Happiness is health and therapy.

That: “I am the Master”

Thinking of how the world has changed for the Japanese in just two and a half minutes….

Mother nature convulses
In sheer fit of outrage
From Heaven yesterday
Turns into a Hell today
Mocking at man’s delusion
That: ” I’m the master.”

Earth throws tantrums
Shakes and trembles
Enfolds life along
Slides and shifts
Turns a mass grave
Ridiculing man’s illusion
That : “I’m the master.”

Oceans roar aloud
Rise high in fury
Sweeping all alike
Matchbox houses
Cardboard cars
Engulfing mortals within
Drowning peace with it
Decieving man’s fantasy
That: “I’m the master.”

Death, despair everywhere
Cities of yesterday
Become graveyards today
Houses, schools, bridges
Turn a pile of rubble
Mountains of tragedy.
Taunting at man’s fallacy
That: “I’m the master.”

Bole tou Mitho Laage –Rajasthani Folk Song

Rajasthani is my mother’s mother tongue. Although I love music from all cultures, Rajasthani music occupies a special chamber in my heart.
As Papa who was a hardcore urban Delhiite, was totally in awe with the richness of Rajasthani culture. He often repeated, “The Rajasthani desert terrain and harsh weather conditions is made bearable by its inhabitants with use of vivid colors, arresting music and affable people.

Most Rajasthani songs so easily convey passion through minimal pageantry. Here is a beautiful folk song from Rajasthan with simple lyrics that exude so much affection:

Bole to meetho laage,
[Bolti hai tou meethi lagti hai]
[When she speaks, she sounds sweet]
Hasey to pyaaro laage,
[Jab muskurati hai tou pyari lagti hai]
[When she smiles, she looks adorable]
Bethodo sove mhaare aanganey,
[Mere Aangan me baithey hue tum suhaati(achhi lagti) hai]
[She looks pleasant, sitting in my courtyard]
Saanwri surat jero jaanida mhaaro,
[Saawli surat jaisa mera yaar hai]
[Wheatish complexioned-such is my beloved]
Bethodo sove mhaara aanganey,
[Mere Aangan me baithey hue woh suhaati(achhe lagte) hai]
[She looks pleasant, sitting in my courtyard]
Allah aabaad raakhey, Maula abaad raakhey,
[Allah/Maula tum humesha khush(aabaad) rakhey]
[May Allah/God/Almighty keep her prosperous(happy) always]
Bethodo sove mhaara aanganey,
[Mere Aangan me baithey hue wo suhaati(achhi lagti) hai]
[She looks pleasant, sitting in my courtyard]

However my favourite version of this song is this one by Barmer Boys:

Preet se preet lagi, piya door dishaa mutt jana,
Baso hamari nagri mein, hum mange tum khao
Duniya bari baawli, pather poojan jaaye,
Ghar ki chakiya koi ni puje, jiska peesa khaaye !
