A state of health does not mean being free of physical or psychological disorders, in contrast to other people who are ill.
Health is not a competition designed to show that you are healthier and in better shape, or live longer and better, than others. Health means being aligned with the earth and the sky, feeling part of the whole, it does not matter if you are physically ill or not.
The disease, on the other hand, is identification with one’s own body, being interested only in your private health and well-being, the sense of separation from the whole.
The whole includes the cycle of life and death. Every minute one hundred million cells die in our bodies and this allows our body to live. Every day on the planet, 160000 people die and this allows the planet to live. Even this planet will eventually die, to allow the universe to live.
Healing does not mean to heal yourself! Healing means ceasing to identify yourself with just your own body.
When you identify yourself only with your own body, than you become delusional and expect that it going to be healthy forever. Then you enter into competition with other bodies and the environment you perceive as extraneous subjects. You get depressed, you blame yourself or others if you’re ill. But in reality you have been ill for a long time, whether you are healthy or ill. And even if you can overcome a physical illness, with great satisfaction for your personal self-esteem, you will continue to be ill, even more sick than before.
The fact that you are able to recover from an illness, instead of dying, does not mean anything in terms of actual health. Of course, you can feel good and be admired for having overcome the disease, even writing successful books about it. But your victory over the disease actually serves to bitterly show that those who die are losers. And since everyone is destined to die, including you, by celebrating your victory over a disease, you condemn everyone and yourself to defeat.
True health is abouth healing the sense of separation, recovering your identification with everything and everyone, accepting life and death, being victorious always, never on someone or something, but together with everything and everyone .
