Meditation is positive and has it’s own reward. Healing disease?

I was rinsing some woollen sweaters in the laundry and gazed out of  the window to see our 80 plus,year old neighbour up the ladder trimming his cyprus hedge.Collecting gardening gloves and pruning shears we hurried to help out. I was hoping to get the neighbour from the high hedge. Leigh was given the other ladder so he could tackle the six foot high hedge from the other side.

Our neighbour was delighted to see us, not to hand the job to another but

It was for him an opportunity to talk. I was then more worried he would loose concentration and step off the ladder.

So often another author puts my thoughts so clearly.
Professor Kurt Tepperwein in his book Think and Heal says 

“Be kind to the people around you, take time to listen to their worries. Let them talk to you about their dreams and their needs . Try not to think too much of your problems. Instead focus on helping others as much as you can, you might be surprised to find that by helping others, you can actually help solve a lot of your own problems, especially when you realise every positive act  carries its own reward.This is because positive actions liberate positive forces in the person performing those actions. When applied judiciously and with awareness, this principle becomes a source of well being and health.

As long as you keep concentrating on your own problems and worries, they will remain a part of you. 

“It is only when you can see a health problem, (or any other problem, )”for that matter “objectively  exactly for what it is , i.e. as disturbance of your inner harmony, that the power of positive thought can work to your advantage. 

So when you can gain an objective( no emotion or feelings involved) view of your problems they must disappear of their own volition.

About lorraine

After a nasty fall from my bicycle, coming home from high school, I began suffering from migraines. After a term of Chiropractic adjustments, which helped but did not entirely stop the migraine headaches, my parents in desperation sent me to yoga classes, The only available evening class in our area was filled with pregnant women. I felt out of place as a shy teenager, but persevered. adjustment,breathing, meditation and yoga proved the only therapy that bought relief from the headaches. Feeling well I got on with life, married moved from my home town and forgot the daily yoga practices and there benefits. Coming back to Yoga and meditation helped me manage during the time of my father's Cancer. and death. Later when my Husband became ill the natural decision was to qualify as a Yoga, meditation teacher to further assist others through the difficult times of illness and recovery or death. I have now been benefiting from the science and art of Yoga, Meditation for well over twenty five years.
