Deepak Chopra, spiritual leader, breaks down healing power from within. This is what the pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to see.
Towards the end of this presentation Deepak suggests that our state of mind can be the source for miraculous improvements to our quality of life.
Almost sounds too airy-fairy to be true. Here is a true story that I believe validates this validation:
A friendly, hard working, happy-go-lucky, take life as it comes, seventy year old man had a medical episode one day, unexplained pain around his neck, tests were run and so on. He carried on.
Almost a month later his good lung collapsed. The other one had ominous spots on it. He was going to be hospitalized for a couple of weeks for observation but the lung started regenerating on its own so he was in for less than a week.
He found out the discolored parts of his lung were not from his sixty years of smoking but from having worked underground in a mine. A specialist is now eager to fix the problem.
Around that same time he learned that the earlier episode had been a blood clot dissolving before it got to his brain.
A short time after that he was called in for heart surgery, his arteries were 85% blocked. The morning of the surgery came and the specialist places a hand on his shoulder and tells him his lungs aren’t strong enough but the surgery was imperative. With obvious sadness and regret the doctor was being genuine in his desire to want to help but was resigned to the knowledge that this would be the last earthly conversation he had with the man.
The man didn’t express any doubt or fear but instead said, I trust you, do what you’ve got to do. And with that the slicing and dicing began…
Now that his arteries are cleared the rest of his body is responding and the once crippling fibromyalgia is nearly not a bother at all anymore.
If he didn’t have such strength of will the blood clot might not have dissolved and this post would be much shorter. The point I’m making here is this:
If you accept that in life which cannot be changed you have, by virtue of acceptance, already changed it.
