Reflections on a prescription for health... Many years ago my friend got a metal detector. She brought it over and we started searching for treasures around the yard of our nearly 100-year-old home. By the end of the afternoon we had a collection of old medicinal bottles, scraps of metal, and a yard that looked like someone had set off a bunch of landmines. I think of that day because I am reminded of all of the little medicinal bottles that we found. Once again I feel like someone who has discovered a treasure – Uncle John’s Cure-All-That-Ails-You Ointment. Only this remedy doesn’t come in a tube or a bottle. The aches and pains that have plagued my body for so long have been falling away. No more back aches, no more sore feet, no more pain in my neck, no more grinding of teeth at night, no more tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable position to sleep. So what has been my treasured cure all? Presence. Awareness. Peace. The tension that used to cause me pain was just a physical reflection of my fearful thoughts and emotions. Fear is just a lie. Love is the Truth. Our body is like a lie detector. We respond to lies with stress. Our body sweats, our heart rate increases, our muscles become tense, our blood pressure increases. See the symptoms, look for the lies, relinquish the lies, relinquish the fears…and instead participate in making the choice to Live Beautifully, keep returning to Peace, Love and Acceptance. Choose to live every moment of your life with Truth.
I intend to be aware of thoughts that are not Truth.
