The Symptoms

“The soul has no secret that the behavior does not reveal.” Lao- Tzu
Nowadays, conventional medicine still tends to confuse the symptom with the illness itself.
This would be the same as confusing the screen with the projector.
Just in the same way that the screen in a movie theatre can only show the images coming from the projector, our body is where our awareness projects itself.

All the processes and changes in our awareness manifest themselves in our bodies as symptoms.

The body can manifest many different symptoms, all of which are an expression of the process we call illness.
Illnesses, as we have mentioned, have their origin in the patient’s consciousness.
Etymologically, the word symptom means “coincidence.”
Any symptom, be it of a stroke or something else, coincides perfectly with the current situation the person is living in that moment.
Each symptom then, carries information, a message that conveys the state of our soul. It indicates that we have a problem, something is not working we have a deficiency.

When consciousness is in a state of harmony, the disease has no reason to exist and does not manifest itself.

In order to develop a symptom, I must have had an emotional impact:
Each physical symptom has been preceded by a thought, a feeling, a negative belief, something that made me feel bad, something I could not cope with, an unresolved issue and these could be related to fear, lack of affection, resentment, repressed violence, irresponsibility or lack of awareness.
Therefore, if we learn to recognize the symptoms and interpret them, we will fully realize that they always speak of us, of our interior.

Going back to the previous example, we can say then, that it is impossible to change the content of the movie by trying to fix the screen.

The screen, as the symptom, is only the effect of an invisible cause.
It shows us the script, the photography and the actors, but if we wish to change something we don’t like about the movie, we must not go to the screen but to the filmstrip and the projector.
The symptom uses a personalized language to point out what is out of balance within our consciousness.
The symptom points out exactly what excesses or shortages we have in our lives, what mistakes we are making and what we need to do to return to that state of balance called health.

It would be ridiculous to be angry at the symptom or to try to suppress it since what we need to eliminate is the cause and not the symptom.

Therefore, it is very important to be able to distinguish between disease (on the consciousness plane) and the symptom (physical plane, biological plane).
When we understand the difference, our attitude, and our relationship to illnesses, changes rapidly.
We no longer consider the symptom as a nuisance and as an enemy that needs to be destroyed as soon as possible.
We discover that the symptom is an ally, a guide that can help us find what we are missing or what we need to do so that we can then overcome the illness.
