Weekly Words of Wisdom" by Swami Satchidananda
- "When your body is sick it needs the help of a strong mind to repair
it. Your fear worsens the situation; fear makes the body weaker. Fear
is not in the body. Fear is in your mind. When you don't accept what
is happening in the body, and when you identify yourself as the body,
the fear comes.
You have to transcend the limitation of identifying with the body. The
body might undergo difficult situations. It's like your car: If you
have trouble with the car, what would you do? You take the car to the
repair shop and get it repaired. But you don't think you are being
repaired--you are not the car! You should always know that the body is
just your vehicle; it is not who you are. Then you never need be afraid.
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
