A basic definition of health is – Absence from injury, damage, defect, disease & problems.
The unhealthy system would be defined by a set of observable symptoms. Symptoms are conditions that are considered not normal, not natural, or not desirable. Their presence is resisted and the fight against disease begins. From this platform of "what is health", we begin to wage war on ourselves.
There is no aspect of life that is not in a constant state of change, whether human life, botanical, inanimate or cosmic. If it were not for change, there would be no growth of any kind, no new beginnings and no endings. Change is our indication that something is happening and we are part of it, and witness to it. Life itself is that state of non-change because it Is, regardless of, and inclusive of the fact that all aspects found in life, do change constantly.
The very existence of life could not be lived without the perpetual births and deaths at every single moment. When we introduce the notion of symptoms, it can’t help but bring up resistance to change and that is anti-life. Surely we could all agree that growing into our full potential and being more true to ourselves would be a desirable change. But if so, what would be the indications of that?
To grow into what we already are, is both the most natural process and the most uncertain.
To face the uncertainty that what we currently know and experience could be false, dishonest and selfish, and is something we would find undesirable (at first). These undesirable changes are what we label symptoms. From there we fabricate diseases and problems, unite with one another, and wage an unholy war with our own inner sense of purpose and progress.
The pressure is compounded many-fold and problems multiply exponentially. To be anti-life and thwart our own birthright is a sin against ourselves, and against what is natural and otherwise effortless. The inner pain of this struggle is nearly unbearable, and so to cope with that we pretend that we are fighting disease in the name of health, and add another layer of suffering to our experience. What hypocrisy.
From that deception we then form groups, teachings, modalities, techniques and so forth, to “fight disease” and “solve problems”. In our arrogance we call that heath care and struggle to understand why the world is in such a deplorable unhealthy condition, and so we further increase our resistance and try to be more healthy, in the most unhealthy way. There is salvation however. At any moment, it is within the power of any person to realize he or she is not a victim to life.
How can I be a victim to my self?
How can life itself, impose on my life?
Though it is that simple, it is not always that easy. To aid in the process of undoing the layers of self-deception and to shift the misperception from symptoms to purposeful change, there are a select few modalities to assist this otherwise often difficult process.
Of the hundreds (if not thousands) of so called "health care" systems, this article introduces a few that remain true to the fundamental truth that “The solution to all problems is that there are no problems”. That alone is the understanding that changes everything!
