Health and Healing
It strengthens our self-image, such as to enable the mind to become steady in the face of life’s challenges, and the body to stay within the limits of healthy function.
We are more vulnerable to suffering and disease when we identify ourselves with the physical aspects of reality, including the body, relationships, and the actions we perform. This is because everything of the physical world is in a state of constant flux. Faced with loss (or the threat of loss) of external support over which we have little or no control, we are liable to become fearful and defensive. People and situations then weigh heavily upon us. Prolonged negative feelings drain us of confidence and strength and are a common cause of many types of illness.
When we focus on the positive side of what it means to be human, experiencing shared values such as love, peace, and joy, we move towards a state of resilience and strength which promotes healing and health.
