this body has trillions of reactions
going on within it as you are all aware if something goes wrong that creates
disease disease results in misery in suffering and distress that misery and
suffering goes against our nature we wish to do away with it and that gives
rise to the need for the medical profession in the grand scheme of things
disease also has a purpose this divine intelligence that has created this
miraculous body could have easily adjusted it such that disease was much
less or not at all we see the eagle which has such powerful
eyes flying at the height of 10,000 feet it is able to survey which creature is
moving and which has stopped moving so possibly life has gone out of it we see
the nose of the dog which is able to pick up a few atoms of smell similarly
if that was the intent of the divine intellect the body could have just been
adjusted to either reduce or eliminate disease if disease has been permitted as
a part of this scheme called the human body it is there for a purpose it is not
the problem it is the symptom of the problem
like for example if you put your hand into the fire two things will happen
firstly you will experience pain secondly the hand will start burning the
pain is not a bad thing the burning of the hand is a bad thing if the pain did
not occur we would not know the hand is burning and we would not take it out as
we know in the disease called leprosy what happens is only this much that the
part becomes insensitive and hence it starts getting damaged so similarly
disease is a symptom of something deeper Aveda
divides diseases into two parts it says some are garbage and some are dosage
karmic diseases are those that are coming from our karma karma actions that
we performed in the past of which we have to reap the consequences they are
part of our destiny as you sow that shall you also reap so there is a karma
that we are all carrying and some diseases are coming by karma the other
kind of diseases are called dosage they are coming for various
reasons from our actions from our lifestyle from our eating patterns from
our working styles from our thoughts etc in other words in some way we have been
involved in creating them now car much diseases you cannot do much about them
when that karma is burnt the disease will disappear nevertheless
we do not know which disease is dosage and which is car much supposing somebody
is ill and attributes it to one’s destiny that person will not endeavor
for a cure it’s possible if he or she had tried to cure it it may have got
cured so our Veda says don’t assume anything
as Karma’s you endeavor but the results are not in yours are the doctors hands
that is why after having put in your efforts when you get the results be
contented so the doctor will treat it is he who will cure you
