Can something aimed to save our life really save it when it also imposes a threat to it?
The (stress) survival mode response embodies this contradiction. Modern medicine has now made it clear that there are detrimental effects of stress on health. Must we now survive the threat posed by our very own instinct of survival? Clearly this approach cannot save us as it only imposes more threat.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos and the guidance of Lessons 131-158 of A Course in Miracles, we attempt to move beyond survival and attack, exploring the cause of stress and why survival as a plan to defend ourselves from danger and death only reinforces the fearful belief that we are weak and vulnerable bodies/egos; thereby increasing the stress associated with the fear that only the strongest or fittest will survive.
Lesson 135 says, “Enslavement of the body to the plans the unhealed mind sets up to save itself must make the body sick. It is not free to be the means of helping in a plan which far exceeds it own protection, and which needs its service for a little while. In this capacity is health assured.”
We look at Lesson 136 which says, “Sickness is a defense against the truth” and why “No one can heal unless he understands what purpose sickness seems to serve. Being causeless and without a meaningful intent of any kind, it cannot be at all. When this is seen, healing is automatic.”
