And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.Believing in whatever will not cause diseases of the body and mind routinely to vanish. If this were so, everyone would believe and there would be little disease!
~ King James version ~
With an open mind, you will be openhearted.
Being openhearted, you will act royally.
Being royal, you will attain the divine.
Being divine, you will be at one with the Tao.
~ from Verse 16 of the Tao Te Ching ~
But by being openhearted, we can deal with the travails of life in a more positive manner. The woman with an issue of blood was less than whole, not because of the blood, but the way she looked at her situation. Change the outlook and we change our demeanor.
