Two questions I received about coping with serious physical ailments:
Question: I have been studying Kabbalah for several years and doing dissemination. I have lupus, an illness that affects the connective tissues of the body. The illness is controlled but lately I have suffered falls or accidents and this is the fourth time I have developed a luxation (displacement) of a shoulder, having suffered two of them in the past three months. My doctor says I need an operation to stop these luxations. Is this only the result of my physical condition or do you think the Creator is trying to tell me something?
My Answer: You should consult with a few doctors and follow their advice.
Question: If someone has a life threatening illness, should they tell the group or use it as an impetus to unite and correct themselves and try to inspire the group in this way?
My Answer: Let everyone know of it so they all pray for you, because everyone is connected with you in one soul.
