Illness is the bow

When healing is the target Illness is the bow.

When healing is the target
Illness is the bow.
What is a bow but a device for the transfer of energy?
Likewise an illness.
Properly used, an illness turns an outward focus
inward,
Sends energy to where it’s needed most.
Transforms fears into strength
Arrogance into humility
Compulsion to caring
Cynicism to compassion
Brings balance to imbalance.
The release of pain over-long denied.
Worldly medicine does the opposite.
It requires the patient to look outside herself
To give her power to another
To maintain control
To invade the body
To deny the spirit.
One who embraces illness as well as health
Embraces the whole of life.
She can offer life.
Because she receives life.
