“The soul has no secret that the behaviour does not reveal”. Lao-Tzu
Today, the tendency to confuse the symptom with the disease still exists in scientific medicine, which is the same as confusing the screen with the projector.
Just as a movie screen can only reflect what the camera sends you, the body is also the projection surface of consciousness and all processes and changes manifest in the body as a symptom.
The body can manifest many different symptoms but all are expression of the process we call disease and as we have said, it always occurs in the consciousness of a person.
Etymologically, the word symptom means "coincidence". A symptom, of a stroke or of anything else, coincides perfectly with what the person lives.
So, each symptom is an information carrier of a message about the state of our soul. It tells us that we have a problem, that something is wrong, we have a deficiency.
When consciousness is in a state of harmony, the disease has no reason for being and does not appear.
To develop a symptom, I have to have lived an emotional impact:
Each physical symptom has been preceded by a thought, a feeling, a negative belief, something that made us feel bad, we cannot cope, an issue we have left unresolved, which can be related to fear, heartbreak , resentment, repressed violence, unconsciousness, or irresponsibility.
If we learn to recognize symptoms and interpret them, we will perfectly realize, that they always talk about ourselves, about our interior.
As is logical and based on the above example, you cannot change the content of a film focusing on the screen.
The screen, as the symptom, it is only the effect of an invisible cause. It shows the script, photography, actors; but if we change something we do not like, the screen is not the place, we would have to go to the tape and projector.
The symptom also points us with a personalized language what is the imbalance level of our consciousness.
He/she tells us precisely what exceeds or misses, what mistake we are making and what we must do to return to the balanced state called health. It would be absurd to be angry with the symptom or try to suppress it, because we must eliminate the symptom but not the cause.
Therefore, it is very important to distinguish between disease (level of consciousness) and symptoms (body level, biological).
When we understand the difference our attitude and our relationship with the disease change quickly; we do not consider the symptom as anything that bothers us anymore, as an enemy that must be destroyed as soon as possible, and we find an ally in it, a guide that can help us find what we need, and thus overcome the disease.
