Moments of Gratitude

bookcoverWhen I started writing the book about my recovery from multiple sclerosis, I wondered if it was worth writing a book making an ailment as the focus, especially as I am not a medical professional.

Later, when I started doing more research on it, I realised that there still are many aspects that everyone. especially patients are confused about. The more the confusion, the more is the fear and further illness. This seemed to be the pattern. At that point, I felt this book was certainly worth writing to break the pattern.

After having published this and spoken to many people who are combatting this ailment or similar ones, the greatest payment I have received is not the royalty, not the book sales, not the compliments but the fact that there have been many who have broken the pattern and become much better. I do not mean to say that this or any other ailment is something that we should make our friend, like some people tend to say flippantly but something that one can overcome by taking the appropriate steps.

What are these steps?  Like in all areas, these are different for different people but the most important step of all is that we should not make the ailment the be all and end all of one’s life. The more focus we give to the ailment, the more control it has over us. This is relevant to a headache, cold, fever and also cancer and yes, multiple sclerosis.

Though not medically trained, I can vouch for the fact that success stories do make a difference to the spirit, the mind and then the body. Yes, this is the correct sequence.  First, the spirit believes we can become better, the mind follows this instruction and then the body accordingly responds. I have personally experienced this and seen the same sequence in many others around me.
