Saw this on Facebook and thought it was worth remembering:

“Doesn’t it seem strange that the medical system has convinced us that it is perfectly OK to undergo a grievous wounding to address a condition that isn’t remotely life-threatening? Surgery is that wounding. Every wound extracts its price in scar tissue, the lingering effects of anesthesia, the displacement of organs, damage to the free movement of one layer of tissues over another. Not to mention risk of infection, surgical failure, or surgical error (which is more common that you would think).

We appear to have been beguiled into thinking that our bodies are like mechanical objects that can be “repaired” or “improved” by taking a scalpel to the body the way a mechanic would take a wrench to your car.

How is it that we fail to understand how damaging surgery is? Certainly, in a life-threatening situation, surgery will likely be the lesser of evils….”

But for many conditions, it might be a lot better to meditate, relax, change some habits, be less stressed, get some therapy for why you need to look a certain way, or get a massage even!

A Joyful Mind

“The benefit of meditation is to make your mind calm, peaceful, happy, joyful.” – Yongey Mingur Rinpoche

Much of the time we believe this myth in the West that there’s something that is originally wrong with us.  We are originally broken, originally defective, and originally confused.  I think that one of the things this bring home is that “no, that’s actually not the case”.  The case is that the confusion is on the surface and that we are whole, we are always whole and always have been whole.  Meditation helps us come back to that wholeness.” – Dr Andy Moore
