Finding out we have cancer…


What is a disease ? Before we were told of the existence of a "cancer" we probably had no image on the subject, and we certainly hadn't considered being affected by any "pathology". Naming things like this suggests we have some serious or even incurable disease. And now you are overwhelmed by the weight of the description, the "disease", which tends to make the thing  technical and complex. The term does not help to better understand. On the contrary, it stigmatizes and generates fear. The term, the description is never the thing described.

Naming things like this suggests we have some serious or even incurable disease. And now you are overwhelmed by the weight of the description, the "disease", which tends to make the thing technical and complex. The term does not help to better understand. On the contrary, it stigmatizes and generates fear. The term, the description is never the thing described.

First of all, we must set aside all the abstract medicalo-technico semantics preempted by specialists in complexification and disease. The latter operate from the microcosm of their knowledge and authority. Health is often out of their reach because they fail to observe the situation from a holistic stand point, and what really constitutes our global existence. The troubles are often linked to our conflicting lifestyle. None of it allows us to better understand our conflicts and free us from them, quite the contrary. It locks us up in a statute, that's all. It is also imperative to let go of the associated images that condition us and simply observe within ourselves the reactions, fears and contradictions associated with the unknown. To look at the facts without fleeing or condemning is to see the fact of our existence.

Then we must observe the nature of the disorder to establish the links with our way of life. There is food, stress, tensions, conflicts, contradictions, fears, and all kinds of internal as well as external factors.

What is generally called disease is actually a consequence, an effect linked to a cause, not only physical but psychological too. But we have become the champions of avoidance. Our daily life is only a permanent flight away from what actualy is. We expect others to solve our problems, like last-minute assistants. As soon as we can be given a pill or a miracle vaccine we do not ask for more, convinced that they will cure us. We thus accumulate in the body all kinds of products from the pharmaceutical industry, convinced of their validity. We never rely on the ability of the body and mind to naturally regulate and combat occasional malfunctions.

Our life is based on the principle of escape. We flee through distractions, sensations the relentless quest for pleasures. It is our way of avoiding solving the real problems, which we engender in ourselves and all around us.
