Mostly we want to silence any cries from our bodies that something is amiss as quickly as possible. Symptoms of disease are commonly battled into submission by drug therapy, whether the distress is mental or physical. This doesn’t consider the cause.
To view the body from a truly holistic perspective means to include spirit. If we take that to it’s natural conclusion we except that whatever is manifesting is a result of karma. That we have come here to learn lessons that we need to help us shed old skins and reach new ground. In this we are all in a process of healing.
This means that the body is both a temporary container to maintain the soul on its journey to liberation and a sacred temple – as it is a container for the soul!
It is the only place in which alchemy can happen.
