Question: If in the beginning of the 20th century neurotic symptoms were expressed as sexual deviations, now they are rather expressed as hypochondria, a fear of getting a disease. How can I work with the fear that I may become ill? What attitude should I have?
Answer: I should explain the meaning of a disease.
A disease is a dysfunction in the harmony of an organism. When systems work out of harmony with one another then various problems begin to appear. This is a disease.
If we achieve harmony then it establishes itself and governs on all levels including the physiological one.
This is exactly the way we can cure ourselves from serious chronic and even untreatable illnesses.
