1922 : The cancer in me

Buddhist masters have a fascinating view, that everytime you have a serious debilitating mental or physical condition (say Alzhemiers, Parkinson, blood cancer, a block in your lungs, kidney failure and so on…), they believe your body is trying to tell you something, in most cases its trying to connect back to its own reality (whatever that might be), and most definitely – they urge us to view these experiences as death or “near death”, and use these experiences or inflection points to transform ourselves.

Now years ago, I felt these were hogwash or some mumbo theory. Today, older, wiser and closer to my own death – I can see that this is such a powerful advice. I wish I had understood it well enough the first time.
