    SPIRITUAL MEDICINE

    The mind has an influence on the body and vice versa. These two work
    together, neither side can be ignored. Taking medicine is not wrong in
    principle; what is wrong is to attend only to the body and ignore the
    mind. If there is a need for medicine, then take it, but be careful that
    you don't let it be a support and become dependent.
    When the mind is kept free from tension and worry, sleep comes
    naturally. Or, even if you can't sleep, there will be such peace and calm,
    you will still feel refreshed. Learn to be your own spiritual doctor.
    Whatever the nature of an illness-heart problems, cancer or simply
    intense pain-it is through the power of meditation, the remembrance of
    God, that illness can be overcome. This will also protect you from the
    negative things your friends and even doctors might say
    about your health
    Sometimes even just hearing about another's illness, people worry that
    they might have it and become ill as a result. If you have something
    wrong, to worry about it and spread your worry to others will only
    aggravate your ill-health. So even if the body is sick, learn how to let the
    mind simply remain in the remembrance of God.
    If there is even a trace of worry, no cure can be effective

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
