Self-will can steer the psychic energy. The old saying, “Where there is will there is the way” is true in its occult sense. Men can be stimulated by their will, so that they steer their energy meaningfully and find the harmony of life. Reinforcing the will in the weak is by far the most superior activity of healing. When will is reinforced, every person can work wonders with him, failures can be turned into successes, succumbing to sicknesses can be overcome, seeming insurmountable becomes surmountable. The examples are many.
Men have to be reminded of their innate inherent ability. Men do not generally use the will, which each one is endowed with. In cases of sickness, the sick person shall have to be encouraged in every possible way, that his illness gets cured very soon and that he would find his way into life with renewed enthusiasm.
For example: A diabetic can be informed of the needed discipline to monitor his diabetes through right exercise, right food, and right rhythm. He should also be informed that if he follows the discipline related to diabetes and ensures its regulation, he concurrently would have many other benefits emerging from such discipline. A person who follows the discipline of diabetes would be selective in his food intake, attentive of exercises and be careful of his daily routine. When this is followed, he avoids the possibilities of obesity, hypertension, cardiac problems and problems of kidneys. One simple discipline enables him “to keep at bay” other sicknesses. There are men who followed the discipline of diabetes and lived healthy and functional until their nineties. Jiddu Krishnamurthy, a famous philosopher of recent times, demonstrated this. He did not even take medicines. It’s a matter of will.
Instead if a patient of diabetes is informed, that it is a lifelong disease, that it leads gradually in a decade to hypertension, cardiac problems and that in due course he would have kidney problems, the patient’s will gets dampened. The auto-suggestion works and invites all sicknesses in due course of time and succumbs to them. Diabetes is seen as a sickness emerging from inertia or hyperactivity. When men bring in the needed rhythm, the golden middle point is accomplished. Inertia and hyperactivity come together at their meet point, which is called poise. When poised living is accomplished, many sicknesses are kept away.
Ayurveda says: “Ensure daily defecation. May the defecation be complete. May you not eat and drink unless you really feel the hunger and the thirst.” Ayurveda further says, that if one follows the above principles, it insulates against seasonal sicknesses as well as chronic sicknesses. The base for multiple sicknesses is seen in indigestion. When digestion is complete and is effective, man gets energized and lives healthy. He would have a body resistant to sicknesses. Even here will is required to be exercised to ensure intake of digestible food and also to ensure healthy daily defecation.
Will transforms much. Enforcing the will is healing. Let the healer reinforce himself daily with the energy of will and transmit through love the energy to stimulate the will of the patients, which in turn would effectively work for transforming the patient from sickness to health. There is a profound meaning when Jesus Christ said: “I’m the son of god and you too.” Saying so, he opened doors for the humans to innumerable divine possibilities. May the healers and physicians realize the beauty from will and utilize it appropriately to serve the surrounding life.
