Shhhhh!

Talking about sickness only encourages it.

We do not become suddenly sick, as marriages do not suddenly collapse. There is an incubatory period. It takes a long time to become sick.

Sickness ought not to be fussed over, focussed on or fought against. This is not the way. If there’s a war on, the cause is doomed.

Sickness expresses an energy of which we have been unconscious until a set of symptoms suddenly manifest. Medicine cannot cure what causes men and women to become sick.

Our mission in life is to love. Sickness cannot prevent this. Nothing can prevent this.

The notion of a “quiet mind” is actually a bit of fantasy. There is no such thing. The mind is a mess of seething snakes incited instantly to dry-throat riot by lost keys, idiot bosses and pretty girls in pencil dresses.

We do not control the mind. (There’s a rookie mistake!) We step out of it.
