Causes of Disease

Once we understand and accept that illness is a part of ourselves, there may be no way to separate its ’cause’ from the illness, nor the illness from us. In other words, when dis-ease is disease, and disease is dis-ease, we are chasing our tails to ask “Why?” Rather than search for cause, then, better questions might be “Who am I?”, “Why do I hurt?”, or “What are my symptoms trying to tell me?” After all, if we do not know who we are, we have little chance of knowing why we are sick.
