Emma quoting Hippocrates

“To do nothing is also a good remedy.”

“Hippocrates’ remedy for what?” she goes on.
“No clue exactly, but let’s see. Maybe it’s the answer to inner peace.”

The worst disease

Indeed there is no hospital where people can be treated of the worst immemorial disease:

THINKING

Reverence to you

Is it reputation or your body which is closer to you?
Master Joakim

Says Bruce E Levine

“Today, the mental health profession has gone beyond behavioral technologies of control. It now diagnoses noncompliant toddlers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and pediatric bipolar disorder and attempts to control them with heavily sedating drugs. While Big Pharma directly profits from drug prescribing, the entire corporatocracy benefits from the mental health profession’s legitimization of conditioning and controlling,”

You can think your way to wellness

This great article is written by Mike Barret.

During the 70′s more than 8,000 individuals participated in a study where they self-rated their health and were given a medical checkup. Three decades later the participants were reassessed. While taking in risk factors such as tobacco, chronic diseases, and high blood pressure, the scientists found that the individuals who responded positively were more likely to outlive those who replied in the negative. In other words, positive thinking promotes healing and quality health.

It is important to realize that your mind can sometimes be your own worst enemy, or it could be your savior. Increasingly, it is being recognized that a ‘mind over matter’ approach can actually produce noticeable results in your health.

Past research has found that savoring the moment and positive thinking can help to not only improve your current health, but also prevent future health complications. In particular, the findings found positive thoughts to be especially beneficial to those already suffering from diseases like coronary artery disease and high blood pressure.

One very ‘accepted’ example of how thoughts can produce self-healing is when patients demonstrate improved health benefits after being given placebos. It has been found that participants often respond positively to placebos due to the expectation that they are receiving a real medicinal solution. This leads to a mental response that stimulates healing through stress reduction and a number of other factors. This kind of self-treatment can be seen in one case where a woman’s own thoughts made her lose nearly 112 pounds.

Thoughts and thinking are very powerful tools in life. If you believe your illness is becoming worse, it will likely become worse. If you think it is becoming better, it will likely become better. Make every attempt to de-stress the brain, as it will be much easier to come to the realization that your own thoughts and beliefs really can cause self-healing. Search for the gold, and begin promoting your own wellbeing right away.

Your disease – our thriving

We are not really interested to cure, the remedies we invent are part of the disease itself.

“So, don´t ever recover, be a reliable citizen!”, say the multinational companies “we respect you so much, we are here to encourage and take care of your fears, your wellness doesn´t pay, so please remain diseased – your sickness is our true source of great enrichment…”

A comment to Paul

Paul:

Thank you for writing this – I too have problems with science, specifically psychology and psychiatry. The very notion that someone;’s entire Being can be described scientifically is absurd. Actually, I thought I wanted to study psychology until I learned it is taught in college or university as a science. That totally turned me off, and is a big part of why I am attracted to philosophy.

I only read this once, but I still think there is a role for science in society – as you probably agree. However, science is merely descriptive, or a way of describing the natural world in numbers and figures. This, if not careful can lead one to believe that is all there is to the world, negating the power and value of the Self.

Just a thought, but is there not a place for both science and philosophy?

Me:

All the greatest scientists and innovators were acutely aware of the vital importance of soul and inspiration, yet Science as we know it today, reinforces invariably Reason in the detriment of other more subtle qualities, which can be termed as intuition, soul, divine inspiration.

It overlooks and rather disregards these great human resources.

If science hasn´t found it, it means that Soul doesn´t exist – that is what most people think. And the outcome of this existential outlook is our very lugubrious and absurd age which invariably denies – and deprives itself of – emotion. In plain words, indirectly – and alas even directly – science negates the power and value of Self. Look from what defective grounds medicine derives from…

Very few humans go against this erroneous approximation, and these are the ones who also realize something of consequence.

The greatest scientists before were also great philosophers versed in spirituality. As I said initially, Descartes, Newton and Darwin have modeled this scientific outlook which has divorced itself from “real life”.

If you want to study psychology, don´t let yourself be discouraged – there are other courses of action as well. In my opinion, judging from what you go through – your depression – by the time you will totally recover from it, having understood things from the inside, you can help others. You have talent, you can do a lot of things.

Take it step by step and trust your gut feeling – one thing does not exclude the other.

A simple but far-reaching truth

All trouble, infelicity, affliction, physical and psychic disease, stem from this and only one reality:

THE IMMEDIATE LOSS OF CONTACT WITH SOURCE.

A vital insight

Your medicine is in you, and you do not observe it. Your ailment is in yourself but you do not register it.

Hazrat Ali
Sufi master

Absence or mental masturbation

Fear is false relation – it is the interval between what is now and what could be.”Could be” is but a mere abstraction, which consequently means that fear is always abstract.

Instead of enjoying what´s presently offered, you systematically kill this moment, flagrantly refusing it, invariably deviating and turning everything into nonexistent absence, seeking refuge in totally daft and loony abstractions.

You bet…

“Here and now” is too scary – “there and then” is our constant choice…
