Being ill, and the real ‘sickness’ which can strike our minds, hearts and Souls.


Morning  all!

Over the last week, I’ve come across more and more people who have sucumbed to the latest winter coughs and colds. Having experienced the hot and cold sweats, fussy heads and running nose myself … I have to say the latest virus is not pleasant at all! This always feels worse if you’re a fairly healthy person and don’t normally succumb to such things. In addition, it certainly helps you to appreciate when your well! 

This got me thinking … while some regard most ‘illness’ as actually  a cleansing process of (and for) the body, what about the heart and mind and Soul? Pills, lotions and medicine may certainly help to cure or heal the physical, but where one’s emotions or spiritual development are concerned, can there really be a quick fix? Understandably, the hurt some people cause (through what they say or do) can take a lifetime to fade, or indeed may never be forgiven.  Surely, this reminds us of the responsibility for our own thoughts and words and deeds, and today’s post touches on this.

On a lighter note, if you do feel under the weather in these coming weeks, try to stay positive … in the knowledge that it will soon pass, and you’ll feel even better than you did before … so keep smiling!


Being ill, and the real ‘sickness’ which can strike our minds, hearts and Souls

“If being sick or ill can make the body curl up and hide, then the emotions of the heart (which contains the love that is you and I), can also shrivel and appear to fade like dust and die. Remember, hurtful words are far worse than wounds to the impermanent body – for injuries can heal relatively quickly-  but when the heart is battered and bruised, it takes more than a sticky plaster or bandage to mend it.

Throughout time immemorial – and since the embodiment of humankind – the division between man and woman and man to man has ensued through lack of knowledge and wisdom and compassion and understanding. Indeed, what a person or Nation sees as negative or wrong is only the reflection of one’s ‘self’, so there is no cure or magic potion to be offered to the other, because the sickness or ‘dis-ease’ lies within the initiator of the action, the deed, or even the very thought alone.

Therefore, what can you say or do when your tears fall like water over rock? What solution, glue, medicine and cure do you think you or each country, and even the world needs? One may believe you want and desire status quo … to restore balance and equilibrium, when in fact, what you really need is peace and compassion and above all, forgiveness. But how can this happen when another will not speak? How can you repair what you cannot touch? How can you look into another’s Soul when your eyes will not even meet?

Please understand, the answers do not lie in any earthly place, for conflict, disputes and divisions cannot be solved with the offering of presents or gifts. Everything which is free must flow from the heart with love, so the spark of Divinity within you is able to rise up like the phoenix from the ashes. In truth, you can all emerge from the cocoon of sleep, and bloom from a chrysalis into new butterfly, to become stronger and soar higher than you ever thought imaginable.  Amen”


PS.  God can help you … for love cures all ills.
