I have strength & the hope to believe,
In time I will emerge from my cocoon.
I came across this wonderful book over a year ago at a used book store. I bought it and then put it on my bookshelf of books to read.
Finally I got a chance to read it.
Bodymind communication & The self path to self-healing: An Exploration
There will always be loss and grief. I know, however, that out of pain new love and true healing can occur. One must learn to use one´s pain for personal transformation, or longevity will be no gift. The path is difficult but it will lead to moments of great beauty.
Those who have learned to take the challenge of their illness and share responsibility for their treatment have chosen the path that leads to peace of mind and healing on a spiritual level.
Peace of mind is the goal to work for as you seek change.
If, as Candace Pert has said, your body is the outward manifestation of your mind, peace of mind is what you want it to manifest. That doesn't mean suppressing your feelings.
As we´ve discussed, people think that anger, for example, is a "bad" emotion, so they may try not to allow themselves to feel it when they are told they have a life-threatening disease.
But it´s okay to be angry-even with God. As one of our group members said, "I fired God a long time ago." Anger, anxiety, depression, fear and many other feelings are unhealthy only if they remain buried inside, unexpressed and not dealt with.
When you value yourself you express all your feelings, and then you let them go. Letting people know who you are and where you are in life means fewer conflicts occur. One result is that your relationships improve and even business improves.
From the book......... Peace, Love and Healing by Bernie S. Siegel, M.D.
Fantastic book! I highly recommend reading it. It is a very insightful and inspiring book.
