3. What is the difference between healing and curing diseases?
Diseases are their own story we are told.
They come with their own life force.
We are asked to listen and to respond not to interrupt and to fix or suppress.
We listen to the story of disease written in signs, symptoms, sensation and motion.
We listen with respect, with unconditional acceptance.
Where are we at ease? Where do we feel the separation between ‘I’ and ‘my?’
What is the nature of the dis-ease?
What is it like?
What in the world is it like?
A barking dog?
A mad dog?
A howling wolf?
Disease is its own healing we are told.
