"Becoming ill is a part of life, a hazard of life, a consequence of life. There are many causes: exposure to dangerous substances, stress, disappointment, the desire to retreat from the challenge of one’s life, exposure to other people who are ill, depression, grief. Any and all of these things may be present to initiate illness." [1]

"Because any dysfunction, mental or physical, is part of your total life here, it cannot be isolated and separated out. If you wish to address a chronic problem, you must address your entire life. But because addressing your entire life is a far greater quest than most people are willing or desiring to undertake, they merely wish to address the symptoms of the discomfort and erase them as quickly and as easily as possible. [2]

"When does your life become really important, not just to secure pleasures and advantages and avoid difficulties, but really to accomplish something that you know you are here to accomplish? Then if you are ill, even seriously ill, you have the commitment to change your life, to alter your habits and involvements with others if necessary. You are going to focus on moving forward rather than succumbing to the conditions of the moment.” [3]

"Greater truth is needed in your life, for your well-being and for the well-being of the world, for you have not come here for yourself alone. You have come here for the world. That is how great you are in truth. That is how great your purpose is, and that is how great your reward will be as you reclaim the essential aspect of your life.

Then, if there is illness, accident or injury, you will simply find what is needed to make the adjustments or the repairs that are necessary so that you can keep going because you have somewhere to go and you have something to do. Then these things will not be exaggerated, these things will not be overemphasized, and these things will not dominate your life and attention. And though you may have aches and pains as you proceed, you will continue, and you will fulfill your destiny here." [4]
