One of the biggest ignorance man holds about his own health and body is that it is a stagnant state of consciousness. This is so silly. The only change he can fathom is degeneration. But he discounts all the ways that the body regenerates itself. It can heal a cut, recover from a flu, or shift itself out of a bad mood any time. The process of smiling is hard-wired into the brain. Simply smiling changes your brain chemistry to be more optimistic.
These are only small examples that we have of how the body corrects itself and self improves. The whole body is a living breathing organism compiled of multilayered process to protect and uplift the quality of life. Everything that is not uplifting and regenerating was programmed into the organism as an outer command. These commands were inflicted on this wondrous organism either out of ignorance or to exude control.
I woke up this morning to the process of my own molecular system; possibly the DNA, shifting data around and eliminating non functioning information that was no longer relevant. It was like the cells were all on a long thin abacus except instead of being round units, they were square. When one unit would dissolve because it was no longer useful, the other digits would move along nicely and collapse the space between them. I have watched this process in myself before.
Two things stand out about this experience. The first one is that modern medicine has done us all a great disservice in training us to treat the body like a mannequin like form that has no relevance in its own thriving. That it either lives or dies depending on whether it gets a diagnosis or not. That outcomes are dependent upon the size of a scalpel or the strength of the poisons it can withstand to ward off the intruder in your body.
That a diagnosis is a death sentence when it really should be a mere checking in with the status of a body at any time.
No. Your body will survive or decline in the degree to which you invest your trust and awareness into the fortitude of your own makeup. Or give your trust to the incompetence or competence of the doctors you are fortunate enough or rich enough to accrue. The miracle in surviving comes down to a hearty optimistic soul. Give an outside God credit if you wish but the credit belongs to the innate ability of your inner mechanisms to work diligently on the behalf of your vessel.
Can God not work in your inner mechanisms as well? Is God really a foreign force carrying lightning bolts and threatening people into compliance? or is it the sweet and subtle workings of your own heart and mind centers? Are you not a physical manifestation in how the love force is personified and kept functional and pristine with little input from the conscious mind?
Or are you at the mercy of your limited and fickle understanding of how not to hasten the pace of degeneration. Can you influence your health by understanding what a magnificent functioning unit it is and by not bombarding it with negative influences and limiting thoughts?
The other point that stood out to me in watching the workings of my own cellular makeup was that I was witnessing something that someone would reach in sincere meditation or prayer. It was like the cliché of watching a beautiful sunset except the beauty and wonder was within myself. Perhaps this is the purpose of all sincere forms of worship; like meditation, yoga, or prayer.
Perhaps the way that these practices are beneficial is to allow the working mechanism of your inner wonders to know that you are present and appreciate its complicated splendor that all takes place on your behalf. Perhaps by acknowledging a greater force within, it assists in the regeneration of the body. Maybe this us all it takes to get the outer ignorant aspect of man off the degenerative mind loop it is transfixed in.
Maybe spontaneous healing is an every moment practice that we could benefit more from and even witness, by simply getting out of its way.
