Harbhajan Posted July 25, 2005 Report Share Posted July 25, 2005 SPIRITUAL MEDICINE The mind has an influence on the body and vice versa. These two work together, neither side can be ignored. Taking medicine is not wrong in principle; what is wrong is to attend only to the body and ignore the mind. If there is a need for medicine, then take it, but be careful that you don't let it be a support and become dependent. When the mind is kept free from tension and worry, sleep comes naturally. Or, even if you can't sleep, there will be such peace and calm, you will still feel refreshed. Learn to be your own spiritual doctor. Whatever the nature of an illness-heart problems, cancer or simply intense pain-it is through the power of meditation, the remembrance of God, that illness can be overcome. This will also protect you from the negative things your friends and even doctors might say about your health Sometimes even just hearing about another's illness, people worry that they might have it and become ill as a result. If you have something wrong, to worry about it and spread your worry to others will only aggravate your ill-health. So even if the body is sick, learn how to let the mind simply remain in the remembrance of God. If there is even a trace of worry, no cure can be effective Source: athilat.com 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
