People seem so occupied with finding cures for countless different diseases, all of which are symptoms of dying. Why not seek the cure for death itself?
All things being equal, the illusion of disease is as much of a gift of Divine grace as any product or procedure that seems to cure the disease…as well as the illusion that the cure is unavailable for whatever reason.
Every single happening is meant for one purpose…to awaken the mind out of its self created misery.
Recognize this to allow the mind’s delusional dependency on political/corporate systems of greed to be dissolved. Otherwise every perceived cure is just a setup for more disease and inequality being made manifest in the world.
The greedy mind has convinced the general population that they need one or several products or procedures in order to be healed and avoid suffering. In truth no product can ever heal anyone, and emotional dependence on products is suffering itself…which leads to more suffering.
Every experience of healing is really transformation of the perception…which is a gift of Divine grace. The material reasons for healing are only an illusion, and as long as illusions are taken as true, dis-ease multiplies, notwithstanding the accomplishment of any physical cure.
As long as there is belief that certain products are necessary in order for healing to occur, the mind’s attraction to many forms of fear is cultivated….which can only intensify and multiply diseased thought entities that roam the mind seeking expression through living beings.
Since I’ve been made aware that the inherent power to heal every form of dis-ease is within, I no longer resist illness or disease. I embrace it with purpose because I know it’s my responsibility to allow real transformation within the collective mind, not merely to cure symptoms.
I understand that many times healing seems to occur through a particular means, but I’m also aware that those means are illusions made to satisfy the rational mind.
In this way, I don’t find myself giving credit to anything but my God source for every instance of healing; and I don’t mind a diseased body because the opportunity to live my purpose in sickness as well as in health is the truth of why I’ve come into physical form.
May every being thrive in the abiding joy that springs out of healed perception.
Physical discomfort, pain and tension are not problems for me because I’m aware that they are meant to be experienced from a deeper sense of comfort, joy and appreciation for all biological processes…
It’s only when I try to attain or maintain an ideal picture of physical vitality that I can be impressed by fear, and thereby suffer over temporary physical sensations.
I used to be somewhat of a hypochondriac…suffering over the physical pain, discomfort and bodily illnesses that I experienced.
I always found something in the physical world to blame for my perceived lack of health…whether that was imperfect food, air pollution or noise that would prevent me from getting restful sleep.
But since I gave up blame, I and my family have been experiencing more vibrant health, wellness and comfort in our bodies than ever before…despite the fact that we are direct neighbors to a power plant that seems to be the cause of health issues for many members of our community, and we frequently swim in ocean water that’s been reportedly tainted with radiation for years.
To me, this is a testament to the fact that when fear and worry associated with blame are released, the physical body becomes more receptive to the vital Life Force Energy that constantly creates and sustains all living organisms.
For the past few years I have not been subscribing to any diet regimen or food concepts.
When hunger arises, I simply observe what available foods resonate most with my body and then I eat with reverence, gratitude and joy according to her wisdom.
The body/mind receives and assimilates life affirming information through the process of dis-ease.
Don’t buy into the endless mental trapping of “why” and “how”. Just experience the process, and let healing happen.
Life is Endless and You are Eternal. Your body is not yours. It belongs to the All. To try and save the body or secure a future for the body is to deny the soul’s desire to love and play with All of what’s arising right now.
I enjoy my food and drink to the fullest, which makes it incredibly healthy and nutritious for my body. Unless I’m concerned about what the mind thinks I *should* or *should not* eat, my body’s intuitive wisdom leads me to enjoy whatever it requires to support vibrant health.
Here’s an article by Ben Hirshberg that does a great job describing what intuitive eating means and gives a summary of some studies done on the subject.
(NaturalNews) Intuitive Eating is a way of consuming food and drink that gets in touch with our body’s natural abilities and instincts. The concept is quite simple: intuitive eaters listen to their body and eat when hungry, drink when thirsty, and eat and drink what their body is telling them it needs.
Do intuitive eaters binge on junk food?
Many people hear this concept and are immediately up in arms. The common objection to Intuitive Eating is that many people crave junk food, and if they listened to their bodies then they would just cram in the candy, chips, and soda.
Fortunately, Intuitive Eating has been researched quite a bit, and the literature shows that binge eating is actually significantly reduced when people practice Intuitive Eating. In one study, a group of women diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder attended eight 90-minute weekly intuitive eating sessions. After the eight sessions were over, over 80 percent of the study participants no longer met the diagnostic criteria for the disorder! In fact, Intuitive Eating is inversely associated with other eating disorders as well, and appears to promote a healthy relationship with food.
Intuitive Eating and the Pleasure Principle
The reason for this seems to be that our body is naturally capable of regulating what we eat and drink. If we eat something that is bad for us, our body will probably not like how the unhealthy food makes us feel, and that dislike will carry over and dissuade us from wanting to eat that same food in the future. This concept, called the Pleasure Principle, was coined by Charles Einstein who hypothesizes that if we just focus on eating things that give us pleasure, we’ll naturally gravitate towards foods that make us feel good in the long-term. The catch is that this can only happen if we don’t interfere psychologically. If we tell ourselves that we can’t eat certain foods, or that we need to eat certain foods, then we are interfering with our body’s natural ability to operate under the Pleasure Principle.
More Intuitive Eating benefits
Intuitive Eating has more benefits than just creating a healthy relationship with food. It has been repeatedly associated with a lower body mass index, likely due to intuitive eaters listening to their satiety signals. Intuitive Eating is also associated with a more positive mood and greater life satisfaction. This could be because intuitive eaters don’t worry about the food they put in their mouths, and are more likely to choose a meal that satiates their true hunger.
Though many discount Intuitive Eating upon first glance, the concept is actually backed up by quite a bit of research. You may want to give Intuitive Eating a try yourself to see if it promotes a positive relationship with food, a greater connection to your satiety signals, and improves your mental outlook.

Diets are dogma. They use logic to create a habit that’s supposed to make the body healthy.
This is a very poor substitute for Listening to the body’s immediate response to whatever is taken in, and allowing that wisdom to inform what movements align with vibrant Life.
