Remember not to forget
The change in season is subtle. The hot days and nights, gradually become warm days, cool nights. Nature never does anything overnight. It takes its time, doing a little each day. The pace of transformation and change progresses in such a way that balance and harmony is not disturbed.
Nature can also be harsh. Strong winds and rain, lightening, thunder, excessive heat or cold, can be part of its pattern. Then the weakest pay the price, the strongest survive, whether in the plant or animal or human kingdom. This picture can also be said of the human internal organism. Processes happen in every cell at every moment of our lives in the most profound yet subtle way. So we can develop tissue or we can stop growing new bone or cells. Look at the dramatic changes happening in a young child’s body! The body knows how to develop and grow to become the completed plan of the architectural drawings of the DNA. All of this innate knowledge is there all the time for the rest of our lives.
The storms inside the body, when viruses and bacteria attack can be fierce and scary. The weaker cells are destroyed, calling on the stronger body systems to supply a defence. Have you ever been really sick and allowed the body time and rest to recover? Can you remember how much stronger you became in your body, mind and soul in the weeks afterwards? This is what I mean when I liken illness with a storm. When the sun shines again, it is so much better than you ever could remember it! What is true, is the fact that this sense of wellness is usually experienced provided the process happening in the body was not interfered with or suppressed. This is the strongest argument for the use of natural remedies during illness.
