It is difficult for some people to associate disease and illness on our bodies to the way we use our minds.
In the Tip of the Writing Brush are the following verses.
Indicating no one in the world in particular,
I say to you that the evil in the mind causes disorders of the body. 5-9
Through a disorder may come to the body,
I am making a distinction in each of your minds. 11-4
I shall make everything in the mind of each of you
clearly manifest on your body. 12-171
Jesus even believed in the association of evil in the mind and disease of the body. The following are verses from the New Testament.
9:1And he entered into a boat, and crossed over, and came into his own city. 9:2And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, be of good cheer; thy sins are forgiven. 9:3And behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. 9:4And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? 9:5For which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven; or to say, Arise, and walk? 9:
10:1And he called unto him his twelve disciples, and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of disease and all manner of sickness.
It is with these illnesses that God is distinguishing how we are using our minds. God wants us to remove the evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our minds. When we realize our errors of the mind (sins), we are cured of our illness. It is the pure heart that God wants. A verse from the bible:
6:19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal: 6:20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth consume, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 6:21for where thy treasure is, there will thy heart be also.
