Mind entertains varied and several thoughts. It is an open platform for thoughts to land, from all ten directions. Wisdom says, “Let thoughts of goodwill only be received from all directions”. One cannot let any and every kind of thought into him. The one who is falling ill does not know that his mind has become a platform for reception of thoughts without filters. Inception of illness is easier when the thought plane remains unregulated and uncontrolled. Illness permits itself into the system, through the mind. Hence the need to use discriminative Will to resist disease and decay.
“May the mind seal the door, where evil dwells” is a dictum to the students of wisdom; men should be warned of this inception of sickness through unregulated thoughts. Once sickness enters the system gets slowly corrupted. Even in such cases further inceptions should be resisted.
It is for this reason wisdom suggests that, “several thoughts, be united into one direction”. When humans dedicate themselves to a purpose and work with attention to that purpose sincerely with mind senses and body, the possibility of inception of sickness is substantially reduced. Men on noble mission do not fall either sick or succumb to sickness until the mission is accomplished. Even from the stand point of health it is beneficial to relate to a noble purpose in life and work in that direction. “Let purpose guide, the little wills of men” is again a statement of wisdom.
The one, who is potential for illness, does not suspect the possibility of falling ill. Even in such cases one can guard his consciousness to resist malefic thoughts and be open to beneficent thoughts.
To be attentive to the sending’s from space around, is wisdom by itself. To set rhythms to receive beneficial transmissions from space by adapting to timely contemplations is a practice which the health workers should adapt and impart to patients.
The thinkers of ancient times always urged physicians to promote purpose in life of the patients and to direct the patients to relate to the purpose of heart. After all, the Will and the Heart are the best remedies.
