“Health is not only a physical phenomenon. That is only one of its dimensions, and one of the most superficial dimensions because basically the body is going to die – healthy or unhealthy, it is momentary. Real health has to happen somewhere inside you, in your subjectivity, in your consciousness, because consciousness knows no birth, no death. It is eternal.

If these four things are fulfilled, one is inwardly healthy. These four are the four pillars of inner health. Attain to it. It is our birthright; we just have to claim it.” – Osho
