The Importance of Religion and Spirituality in Healing

Written by Wellness Club on June 12, 2008 – 12:16 pm -

Spirituality and religious faith are important to many of our Wellness Club members, customers, and HealthBeat News readers.

Dr. Myatt has long recognized the importance of spirituality in healing and wellness, and in fact she has taught and lectured on this subject and has produced 2 very popular videos:

In The Body/Mind Connection Dr. Myatt explains the Body/Mind Connection in terms of easy-to-understand physiology. She explains how thoughts become translated into flesh via the endocrine and nervous system. She also explains how we can draw upon that knowledge to change unproductive habits, heal our bodies, and create new circumstances.

In Remembering Who You Are Dr. Myatt explains that Recognition and remembrance of our true nature has always been the goal of both science and religion. It is a necessary component of the healing process, whether of body, mind, or spirit. Drawing from well-accepted scientific principals, plus wisdom from a variety of the worlds great religions, she will lead you on a journey of remembrance that may prove to be the most valuable tool of your entire existence.

With this in mind, we thought our readers might enjoy this combining of of wisdom from two rather different belief systems, expressed in familiar sayings from each:

If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

Be here now.
Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated?

Drink tea and nourish life;
with the first sip, joy;
with the second sip, satisfaction;
with the third sip, peace;
with the fourth, a Danish.

Wherever you go, there you are.
Your luggage is another story.

Accept misfortune as a blessing.
Do not wish for perfect health, or a life without problems.
What would you talk about?

The journey of a thousand miles begins with
a single ” Oy Vey”

There is no escaping from karma
In a previous life, you never called, you never wrote, you never visited.
And whose fault was that?

Zen is not easy.
It takes effort to attain nothingness.
And then what do you have? Bupkis.

The Tao does not speak.
The Tao does not blame.
The Tao does not take sides.
The Tao has no expectations.
The Tao demands nothing of others.
The Tao is clearly not Jewish.

Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Forget this and attaining Enlightenment will be the least of your problems.

Let your mind be as a floating cloud.
Let your stillness be as a wooded glen.
And sit up straight.
You’ll never meet the Buddha with such rounded shoulders.

Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers.
Each flower blossoms ten thousand times.
Each blossom has ten thousand petals.
You might want to see a specialist.

Be aware of your body.
Be aware of your perceptions.
Keep in mind that not every physical sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.

The Torah says, Love your neighbor as yourself.
The Buddha says, There is no self.
So, maybe we’re off the hook.
