The Path of Health, Healing & Personal Growth (from 01-24-12)
Even though we have had a delightfully mild winter here in northern NJ so far, that has not stopped the cold and flu season. For the past 4 weeks I have been battling one of the most pernicious colds I can remember. Looking back I can blame it on the stress of the holidays with an active social season, and a demanding year end work load. However, often you think, “could this have been avoided?’
This question must be on the mind of many for Health was the main topic of discussion for Roncar this week. However, as you might expect Roncar brought the subject of health, into the realm of healing and the path to personal growth.
Roncar’s premise is that the illnesses or injuries in your life are a key to discovering the issues that you have been avoiding. If you feel unable or insecure in your life, illness will eventually find its way into your life on some level. When ignored, things which cause unhappiness or that are destructive in you’re your life, tend to grow into a larger obstacle within the mind and ultimately make the situation appear much larger than it really is. As a result you may create an illness or attract an accident as an excuse to not take the actions needed to address your dilemma.
You may ask how an illness or physical affliction can become a pathway to greater perfection, but the answer lies in the optimistic axiom that “What does not kill you serves to make you stronger.” Everyone knows that when you have a bug or a flu virus, by the time the body heals itself, it has developed immunity to that same bug. In a sense the body has become smarter.
The same is true on the mental level. By observing the consequences of your actions and learning how to make better decisions, you become smarter and wiser, and as you become smarter and wiser you also become healthier. Some of us work at it consciously and others just grow through the process, but eventually you develop the ability to successfully deal with issues as they arise. As a result your consciousness becomes as clear as clean running water free from pollutants, and free from the kind of contamination that ultimately results in illness or injury.
The bottom line is “Good metal health is essential for good physical health.” By taking the time to explore the mental source or cause for the physical issues within your body, you can discover a path of action to heal both body and mind. This concept presents a concept that could never be explored in one simple excerpt, but maybe it might get you thinking?
