I guess, you can do more!
The only sentence that came to my mind as my friend related the story-
He had been to the Dr, taken the homeopathic medicines prescribed specifically for him, eating foods recommended for sustaining his health…but then this stomach ailment hit him….
…then, what else can you do?, …it appears there is more to be done…
My words remained inside of me, not allowing this to be heard above the talking in the room….
Knowing, as I do from personal experience, that not all people know this…
Chronic pain is there because we established it, right there in that particular place in our body! There in ourselves, lodged inside us between the conventional doctor visits and the Chinese medicine belief of using homeopathic herbs.. Between the Pilatis and Chi Kong lessons, it is there…
There for us to see, identify, feel and then, do something differently in order to lessen the feeling or …deal with it.
What can we do?
The connection of the mind-body-soul is the source of everything in our body. The body is just a shell, the outward reflection of what is going on inside us…the mind transporting beliefs, in the thoughts we experience, transmitting to feelings that we play out all the time.
Can we believe our thoughts or investigate them?
Check out a passing thought and put it up to the test!
Peering inside our body, seeing how that part reverberates within us… What slight stiffness, tightness or tension this feeling might evolve into? As said in Mindfulness.. is it pleasant or unpleasant sensation within you?
What more can be done in order to give us, to ourselves, more health?
Is this up to us? Or is it, them?
If we come to the conclusion that everyone is responsible for his own behavior.. then.. who is it up to? …Up to, to do what ?
One word, but ohhhh sooo big!!!
Easy it is not, however, we can work at this CHANGE each day. When we are aware of our patterns, our thoughts that give us our behavior, then we can allow ourselves to process this information in our minds and see it in a new way…
…when the mind and soul meet, unite and give us a new understanding.
