I have been having pain in my legs since few days and thus went to see an ayurvedic doctor.
Today( 5th Aug,2018) morning, I met Dr Dinesh, an ayurvedic doctor, at Sri Sri Panchakarma in Bangalore . He did my pulse diagnosis( nadi padiksha) and while writing prescription we started talking.
Our discussion took a philosopical route when he shared something very deep.
Dr Dinesh :’Look at the ECG. What do you see’
Myself : A chart with Lot of ups and downs.( I was a bit surprised and a bit curious)
Dr Dinesh : What will happen when the ECG shows a flat line?
Myself : Person is dead. Life ends..
Dr Dinesh : Yes (With a gentle smile). Life is like an ECG.. Ups and down like an ECG keeps the life going. If there are a no ups and down (flat line in a ECG), life ends. So enjoy the ups and down.
In a 2 min conversation , he has shared a completely different perspective on how I looked at ECG.
Myself : WoW.. That’s so simple and profound.
Dr Dinesh : Yes it is.
‘Whenever we are feeling down, let’s look at the ECG and feel happy that its not a flat line ‘
While I came to address a physical issue, I got a simple and profound wisdom. I thanked Dr Dinesh and left.
While coming back to home, I reflected on 2 questions
What does flat line in an ECG symbolize ?
Flat line symbolized that there is no change..
What do up’s and down in the ECG Symbolize ?
It symbolizes Change .
ECG Helped me deepen my understanding
Change is good .Without change life becomes lifeless….
What do you think ?
