In the Tip of the Writing Brush, illness and disease are called God’s blessings. But to most people, illness would not be considered blessings but would be considered a curse and inconvenience. In most cases the inconvenience will subside with time; and in more complicated cases medicine and health care would be required to alleviate the symptoms and disease. Illness does sometimes makes one appreciative of the joy when we are healthy. But this is not the intention mentioned in the sacred book. The following is from the sacred book:
A slight ailment of the eyes, swellings, dizziness, and pain are but the guidance of God 3-139
Could God use illness and disease as a source of cleansing of the mind? Could these negative infestations on our bodies be a means to a better future? Could God be disapproving of our thinking and actions by placing these illness on us?
It is said in the Sacred book, that when we reflect and ponder over these illnesses, we can eliminate evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our minds. Our illness disappears; but more important our future becomes more joyous due to the action of law of cause and effect. Removal of evil from your hearts, leads to joy in the future. Good actions and thoughts lead to joy. Bad actions and thoughts lead to future sufferings.
So in the future, if illness comes upon your body, it may be God giving you a nudge, a reminder to eliminate the evils (greed and arrogance) or sins. Some will say that illness or disease is caused by virus and bacteria and have no association with God. But it is God that places these microbes before you, and it is God that makes them multiply or decrease in numbers. It is also God that makes your body fight or accept these microbes. God is not a bystander, but is engaged in helping us to create a joyous world with everyone helping each other? Pray for these blessings!
