I recently had a conversation with a man, in his late fifties, whose wife has been ill for over a year. He seemed disgruntled with life. He thought that life has given him a raw deal. He retired a year and a half ago and six months later, his wife of many years, started to complain of loss of sensation in her hands. What followed was days and days of visits to the doctors, hospitals and specialists. Unfortunately, none of the great minds of the medical field could diagnose her illness yet that did not not deter them to prescribe medication that may or may not work. I tried reasoning with him to try alternative means of treatments but I could see the reluctance in him. He was skeptical of their efficacy. 

Then, I tried telling him that his wife can use her own mind to heal herself. There are millions of success stories of how individuals in worse conditions than her have used the power of their mind and visualization to heal themselves. He looked at me bewildered, thinking I`ve lost my marbles. I could see that my effort was futile and the more I tried persuading him it was all falling on deaf ears. 

I had to let go. He was adamant that the outside forces were at play with his wife`s health. And all that I wanted to do was shout out that those forces are not outside but within you. Of course, I did not do that. He was looking the other way now. Clearly, he was not interested in having any conversation with me anymore. 

Our mind is truly a gift. The power that it has is unfathomable but that power has to be harnessed. 

To quote Marcus Aurelius, “You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

The mind has the ability to heal us, it has the power to make our desires come true and it has the power to achieve goals. The only caveat being that we need to know how to use it to better our lives.  They had more faith in the medical practitioner than themselves.  They left their fate to some force outside of themselves. 

We got to look within.
