Save Yourself

"Preaching the good news of the Kingdom and healing every disease and sickness." (Matthew, 9:35)

Seek a cure for your cataracts and your conjunctivitis; however, correct the spiritual vision of your eyes.

Protect yourself against deafness; meanwhile, correct your way of registering the voices and various requests directed to you.

Take medication for your arrhythmia and poor breathing; but also, do not yield your heart to move you impulsively.

Counteract the neurasthenia and the exhaustion; however, continually readjust your emotions and tendencies.

Pursue the gastric disorder, but educate your appetite at the dinner table.

Improve your blood condition; however, do not overcharge it with the residues of inferior pleasures.

Combat hepatitis; however, free your liver from the excesses that please you.

Remove the dangers of uremia; but do not suffocate your kidneys with the poisons in shiny glasses.

Dislodge the rheumatism from your limbs; but also pay attention what you do with your feet, arms and hands.

Cure the disconcerting thoughts that threaten you; however, learn to guard the mind in superior idealism and in noble acts.

Consecrate yourself to your own personal cure, but do not forget the recommendations of the Divine Kingdom directed to your physical organs. They are alive and can be educated. Without purifying the thoughts and without having your will commanding the ship of your organism toward righteousness, the use of all human remedies will be in vain.
