It is true that there is much suffering in the world. But do we need to worry about it? If we focus on the negative, that drains us of the strength to help. Goodness and truth are also at work in our world, as well as darker forces. When I switch on my awareness of positive qualities common to humanity, it is like bringing light into the darkness. The past stops haunting me and I stop worrying about the future. I see more clearly what I need to do now, for lasting happiness and health.

Often, we get into a 'tit for tat' situation in which I feel bad about someone else, so they have ill-feeling towards me, which confirms my opinion about them, and so on. Everyone loses out. I need to see very clearly the damage this is doing. Illness often comes when I feel ill-treated or deceived. With strength of mind, I can recover my peace and have positive feelings even towards those who don't feel good about me.

When I awaken to the power of the mind I can begin to step back from whatever illness is happening in the body. The more I become the observer, watching what is happening instead of being caught up in it, the more free the mind can become. Even when my body is ill, I can create thoughts and feelings of happiness and peace. These positive feelings then help the body, so that I have the strength to face the illness and quite often pain and sickness decrease or may even goaway.

Love is intrinsic to human nature. But when we lose sight of the fact that we are love, inside, we chase after it outside of ourselves instead. When we let go of selfish desires, we become free of worry and ill-feeling and our lives become loving through and through. This is very healing.
