The Torah, Leviticus 13: 9-11: When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest. And the priest shall look, and, behold, if there be a white rising in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising, it is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean; he shall not shut him up; for he is unclean.
If there is a state of “the plague of leprosy…and it have turned the hair white,” it is already a problem since a long series of corrections is required. We have to reexamine our desires to see the darkness in them and correct them.
However, if we don’t identify the darkness and perceive everything as white, we lose our sensitivity and cease to feel our ego. This is already leprosy.
There are three diseases that are contagious to all of humanity: psora, syphilis, and sycosis. These are very serious diseases that affect a person’s physiology and his daily life.
