Mind Pattern 2
>I don't want to go that far
>That idea has to be challenged

What The Mind Pattern Is About
Here, there is an idea and a belief that I will be lost within the details of my investigation and end up with more questions than answers. There is also resistance to push myself beyond what I believe is difficult. There is doubt that i need to challenge someone else's decision. I will do self-forgiveness for these mind components below.

What is Self-forgiveness?
It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

Writing Self-forgiveness Statements:

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that if I investigate the details, it will be too much work and too much details that I will be lost within it. Within this, I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I will be lost within the details of my investigation and end up with more questions than answers. Within this, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that I have to have all the answers believing that if I don't I will be lost and will not make sense of what life is about and not be able to live fully - creating stress within my mind which will raise my blood sugar and affect my ability to earn money instead of seeing and realizing that I am here as breathe in every moment able to move me and direct me to correct myself in living my life to where I can align it to what is best for all - humans, animals, plants etc.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have resistance to push myself to go beyond what I believe is difficult and time consuming where I resist rather than challenge myself to go beyond the resistance to a point where i can assist myself to breathe through the resistance and continue what needs to be done considering what is mutually beneficial for everyone concerned.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to give up on something that I believe is difficult believing that it will cause me pain and suffering which will eventually lead to delay in exercising business functions.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to give up on something that I believe takes a long time to do, believing that life is short and if I will consume a lot of my time doing 1 thing, I cannot do the other things I have to do to survive which will cause me to lose money

This blog is about my mind patterns which I see as I look at my blood sugar readings. 

Mind Pattern 1
>I need to get your blood sugar readings and what you ate for today
>I need that in my investigation

What The Mind Pattern Is About
Here, I am talking to someone where there is comparison, and a desire based on an idea that if we can get the same results we can prove that the mind is behind it all. There is also a belief within self that the idea is true and so I become the idea which I then live, and the outside world responding to me as the outside world responds to me by showing me the idea that I am projecting. I will do self-forgiveness for the mind components of this mind pattern below.

What is Self-forgiveness?
It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

Writing Self-forgiveness Statements:

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that if I can prove that we have the same kind of reading, we can prove that the mind is what is influencing the blood sugar readings - where within this is me believing the idea then I live it in the outside world - creating from within to act out in my without as the outside world responds to me as the idea I am projecting -  instead of seeing and understanding that our body is different in our DNA make up and so it will respond differently to the food items we eat.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to compare or associate my blood sugar readings with X's Blood Sugar Readings believing that if we get a pattern we can conclude on whether the mind is behind these readings instead of seeing and realizing that I have to prove that i have changed. That is what matters.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that if we are able to prove that the mind is behind the blood sugar readings, we will be able to get everyone to do self-forgiveness instead of seeing and realizing that it is through changing myself that people can see what assisted me which will assist in their own decision to change.

Within this, I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to decide for others to change rather than me changing as an example of change - believing that it is easier to change people's decision than to change myself and so it is me diminishing myself within wanting others to change . Within this, I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to diminish myself within wanting to change others rather than change myself instead of seeing and realizing that this is a gift that life has given me and it is for me to accept this gift to challenge myself to change and be the change that I want to see in this world.

Commitment to Correct Myself

I commit myself to expand the word 'prove'

I commit myself to be clear within myself before I say or write the word 'prove'

Word Web (Dictionary) Definition
Prove
Make clear the validity of something, as by an example, explanation or experiment

My expanded Definition
Prove
Make clear the validity of change in my living to be an example for all where I can see changes in my world parallel to self-change.

The Rise and Fall of Blood Sugar 1: Just Drinking Water: The Mind's Role?


http://selz.co/1lep1pl

Mind Pattern
>My blood sugar is up from the normal range
>Normal Fasting Blood Sugar is 75 - 100
>My reading is 104
>Let me just drink water and eat when it is low
>I feel queasy in my tummy
>but maybe hot water can fix it
>let me get hot water from the cafe
>it feels good drinking hot water
>so hot water is better than cold water in the morning
>it's already an hour so let me take the next reading
>It's 97
>so it is getting lower
>I will wait till it goes down to 80 and then i will eat
>It's already 1 hour after i took the last one
>so let me take another test
>it's 106
>oops it went up
>how come?
>I did not expect that
>what could possibly get my blood sugar up?
>I haven't eaten food yet
>It can be my mind
>let me do some self-forgiveness
>it's 101
>I tested again and it is 90
>It went down
>maybe it is my self-forgiveness that did this

Looking at My Mind Pattern:

In this mind pattern,  I have an idea that my blood sugar level should be in the normal range and what the numbers should be, where I interpret the numbers i see in the blood sugar monitor according to my mind's subjective interpretation of it then manipulate my blood sugar levels through the food I eat without considering that stress created by the mind by reacting to what it sees in the environment and the body reacting to that - has a role in raising blood glucose levels. So, I am forgiving myself for the mind components like ideas, beliefs etc. in this mind pattern


What is Self-forgiveness?
It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

Writing Self-forgiveness Statements:

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to have an idea that my blood sugar should be in the normal range between 75 and 100 in the blood sugar meter which i believe is good, based on what I heard and seen from others who I identified as 'experts' in the field - seeing them as having the knowledge and information that I can trust instead of seeing and realizing that i can test my bodily response to high or low blood sugar and see from there if what they say is applicable to my bodily process and see my body's feedback realizing that we all have different DNA make - ups and therefore will have different bodily responses to each food we eat.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to have a belief that if my blood sugar goes higher than 100, my health will be in danger and will be diagnosed as pre-diabetic, believing that if my blood sugar readings continue in this trend, i will end up being diabetic and then my limbs can be amputated - or I can undergo dialysis in a regular basis and within that be labeled as inferior believing that healthy people are more superior than sick people and so i will not be validated by others as good and they will look down on me as a sick person that is not living life fully - perceiving myself as useless, powerless and hopeless within my mind - where I will be unpopular and non-existent in the eyes of everyone believing that I will then live a life of sadness and misery.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that if I only drink water, my blood sugar will go down and if I eat solid food, my blood sugar will go up - instead of seeing and realizing that the mind reacts to the environment either in a positive or in a negative way - which leads to psychological stress, which eventually leads to a physical reaction to the psychological stress -which eventually becomes manifested in the physical body as the body push this' mind stress layers' away through bodily secretions to bring the body back to homeostasis, where the stress eventually affects the blood sugar levels.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have an idea that if I drink water for many hours before I eat, I can keep a normal blood sugar reading instead of seeing and realizing the mind is feeding off of the body and that  its reaction to environmental influences has to also be taken into consideration in reading blood sugar levels.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to manipulate my body to manifest my desire based from an idea that I have in my mind justifying such instead of seeing and realizing this is me as the mind deciding based from an idea and it is to see that rather than justifying it, see how the mind and the body can work in harmony as what is best for all.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to desire to drink hot water believing that cold water is causing me to feel queasy where I blame the cold water believing it is inferior to the hot water - and believing the hot water is superior, judging both expressions, instead of seeing and realizing that it is my mind interpretation of what I am feeling when I drink water and not what is going on in reality - which makes me see water in another way, so. rather than do this, I commit myself to embrace both as my equal and instead of judging it, equalize with both expressions.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to compare the temperatures of hot and cold water where I am deciding which water temperature is good based on what I feel when i take the cold water or the hot water - a subjective interpretation of what temperature is, instead of seeing and realizing that temperature is,

Word Web
the degree of hotness or coldness of a body or environment (corresponding to its molecular activity)

Expanded Definition

the degree of hotness or coldness of a body or environment (corresponding  to its molecular activity) - that is part of the expression of the whole - that is life

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that if the reading is up above the normal range, i will be in danger instead of seeing and realizing that the meter itself is there for cross-referencing purposes.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to blame the body for making my blood sugar go up believing that because I cannot control my body's health through food, I am uncertain of what to feed myself instead of seeing and realizing that the mind has a role in rising blood sugar levels also - so instead of blaming the mind and the body, i have to take self-responsibility for choosing food that will assist the body and stabilizing me here as the breath when and as I go within my mind to try to interpret reality as either good or a bad - to help the body in maintaining homeostasis.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that a low blood sugar reading means I am healthy believing that I am superior than others when I am healthy and those who are sick are inferior than me, believing that if I am healthy I can have fun with friends and family, eat tasty food, laugh and feel good - and those who are sick suffer alone, in sadness and in pain instead of seeing and realizing that viruses are here to help us see what we do not want to look at and so it is to realize that they are here assisting us, walking as our equal in this one life.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that It is better to eat when my blood sugar is down believing that that way I can regulate the blood sugar in my body instead of seeing and realizing that this is me controlling the body's functions for my own benefit - so i can win in my mind and be superior to others and have the idea that ' if I am able to control my blood sugar levels, then I will be popular and rich, instead of seeing and realizing that i have to release these beliefs and ideas so I can clearly see what is going on in my body and express myself here in all dimensions for what is mutually beneficial for all..

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to have beliefs and ideas about the why my blood sugar levels will have to remain in a certain level and what to eat and what not to eat having heard and seen information coming from the media about why it does what it does instead of seeing and realizing I have to test this myself and see how the body and the blood sugar reacts to food items that I eat without interpreting the results within my mind.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to be uncertain about the blood sugar reading I am getting, believing that it does not jive with the ideas and beliefs in my mind of how my blood sugar should be - having normal values always, instead of seeing and realizing that these uncertainties are based from information and knowledge passed on by others that are defined within bias,  rather than what I see based on my own testing and so rather than be uncertain and see what they say as right or wrong, stabilize myself as who i am here as the breath when testing and stop judging the blood sugar readings as good or bad based on my beliefs, ideas etc.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have an expectation of what the reading will be believing that the blood sugar reading should go down when i do not eat or when I only take water,  instead of seeing and realizing that I do not have to judge the readings nor expect what the reading should be based on my beliefs -where I use the reading to make myself look good or bad or others look good or bad, rather, to instead, step back and slow myself down by assisting myself to see the results as what they are -as reference points, realizing that the blood sugar monitors are not accurate to the absolute degree and is there to assist me to have an estimate of how much blood sugar is in my blood.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be uncertain about what makes the blood sugar rise believing that it is the food causing it and nothing else - believing that
since I did not eat food but just drank water, the blood sugar level should go down, instead of seeing that I cannot trust the information passed on to me by others that are defined within bias, and realize that the need to get another information outside of myself that will explain
to me what I need to know is part of my laziness persona and so instead of doing that it will assist myself to test things first myself, and if I am going to use information coming from others, use ones that are based on common sense and spend time to test it first or apply it practically and see if it works. I realized that I need to be patient with myself and be unconditionally supportive to myself, which is also something I would benefit from so I commit myself to practice doing that.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to be uncertain - where I do not believe that the mind is affecting the rise in blood sugar believing that it is the food that I ingest that makes the blood sugar rise and nothing else, instead of seeing and realizing the common sense that I as my awareness, am trapped within the body and the mind - and that I react to things in my environment , moving in physical reality and while expressing myself here, go within my mind, and interpret what I see  - reacting positively or negatively to it, so the key is to step back, identify the fear, face it, and release it.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be uncertain that self-forgiveness was responsible for bringing my blood sugar down instead of seeing and realizing that I am the creator of my world and that I can release myself from what I created in my mind through self-forgiveness including releasing myself from my interpretation of the blood sugar readings based from my beliefs, ideas etc. through taking self-responsibility, as self forgiving self, for what I accepted and allowed in my world and correcting myself in how I live, and I commit myself  to not give up on myself, but rather, continue my process of self-forgiveness and self-correction until it is done and all is free.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that self-forgiveness can bring my blood sugar down as i separate myself from the act of forgiving myself where I as the mind is forgiving myself within uncertainty, rather than who i am here, self forgiving self for what i accepted and allowed in my world standing equal to my mind and body.

Commitment To Rewrite This Mind Pattern

I commit myself to see the blood sugar readings as what they are - as numerical values that communicate a physical message.

I commit myself to look at how we eat, look at the problems and come up with the best for all scenario using common sense.

I commit myself to look at the word 'blood' and its definition in the dictionary so I can expand its definition and align it to the principle of what is mutually beneficial to all - which includes this physical existence, the body and the microorganisms living in it - which are parts of the whole - that is life.

Blood
The fluid (red in vertebrates) that is pumped through the body by the heart and contains plasma, blood cells, and platelets

Money Mind Patterns of Success, The US and The Philippine Scene



I looked at these 2 articles yesterday that talked about Success, one in the US setting and one in the Philippine setting:

1. Rich Poor Money and Family (US)
http://www.npr.org/blogs/ed/2014/08/07/335285098/rich-kid-poor-kid-for-30-years-baltimore-study-tracked-who-gets-ahead?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=tomr20090326is Behind Success

2. Case Study of 2 Women (Philippines)
http://www.wwu.edu/culture/Tuason.htm

What I am going to share with you is my 'success mind pattern' which relates to the 2 articles and my fear of not surviving in a world where survival is not guaranteed which is the fear fueling this.

In the Philippines:
>I need to feed my family
>I have to earn money
>How can I survive and feed my family now that I am separated?

In the US
>I need to find a good relationship and settle for good, have a visa to work here
>and earn enough money to live and buy things I need
>I also need to have spiritual support
>It is tough to live here too
>I thought life is different here in the US
>I thought I can express myself freely and have a business that revolves around my self-expression
>but here i am working a job I do not really want to do

At one point of my stay in the US, here's my Spiritual Lonnging Mind Pattern:
> I need to answer my questions about life
>I need to know the answer to my life's questions
>I need to connect all the puzzle pieces
>I feel I am not complete if I don't know everything
>only then I can earn money
>what's the use of earning money if I don't even know who I really am?

To be successful financially, we need money to survive.

For me to be able to pursue my spiritual investigation I also need to survive.

We all need to have the basic necessities to survive in this world. The monks and priests need money to run their organizations and people in relationships have to earn money for the relationship to survive. They also need a roof over their head and pay bills. When Spiritual organizations do not have money donated by their supporters, the monks go out to ask for donation, otherwise it will stop functioning. When people in relationships lose their job or gets fired, they do not have money to survive and the relationship most of the time collapse.The fear of surviving in a world where survival is not guaranteed appears. This can fuel arguments and most of the time this can even lead to boredom or apathy in physical interaction or sex - which can lead to separation.

Money is behind the survival of spiritual organizations, relationships - everything really.

When we have no money to buy food to feed ourselves, the brain will not have nourishment. It will stop functioning and breathing will stop.

So money is an essential requirement to get  the needs of humans met. Financial success can happen when one has something to eat otherwise how can one go to work? Spiritual understanding or realization of what this world is about can happen when one has some food, clothing and shelter to keep one warm at night. To be able to self-introspect, we need the basic necessities to survive. So money is also a prerequisite for self-realization. We need electricity or gas to give food to the poor and we need internet connection to give classes online or we need electricity to give spiritual training in person to those who need it.

To survive in both countries, we need money. It is more difficult to find a job that will pay more money in the Philippines, so the Filipino dream is to go abroad and earn more money. But to survive in the US, as an immigrant, there are many requirements and it takes time to fulfill those requirements.

I live in the US right now. I lived in the Philippines for a long time. The US belongs to the first world and the Philippines belong to the third world.

Wouldn't it be beneficial if there will be no country categories with all of us equally given the basic necessities we need  to survive -  where we all have guaranteed survival from birth to death ?

Wouldn't it be beneficial if we live in countries that provide us the raw materials we need to survive distributed accordingly -  in alignment to what nature intended - raw materials of the earth for all?

The Persona As The Mind: Is It REAL? 21 Day Investigation On Words and Behavior: Hey Day 2


June's Blog About The Word 'Hey'

Words: 
'Hey'
'Real'

1.
Someone who's a stranger calling me 'hey'

Thought:
Don't Call me 'hey', call me by my name,  June
Picture: A Stranger calling me

Mind Pattern
>don't call me 'hey', call me by my name,  June
>why is he calling me hey?
>I got to tell him to call me by my name
>but that's a tic

Behavior:
Turn my head my eyes looking at the person where the sound came from
Saying 'Don't call me 'hey', my name is June.

What's the fear?
Fear of family members not calling me by my name

This fear is not being looked at. The persona that I believe is me, is running away from this fear because in its estimation, if this is repeated in a family environment, I will lose the validation

Within this mind pattern, there is the idea that if he calls me by my name, we are more intimately connected compared to those who call each other 'hey'. So, there is comparison here too. There is also a belief that people who call each other 'hey' are strangers to each other.

There is a need to influence his way of calling me 'hey' to him calling me by my name which is a way of'
manipulation really to suit what is best for me - so I can stay within my mind and think about this idea and manipulate my way out of it. So then, I realized it's a tic which the mind sees as a habitual 'voice tic'
that the mind defined as some form of speech disorder which the mind believed is not really from the person but which arose from an unconscious voicing of something - so because there was a belief that it was not L as who I knew him to be, that was saying 'hey' I stopped reacting, which is still a belief because it could have been a word

The body is being manipulated to animate what I believed in my mind, my idea of what a name is, my belief of what the word 'hey' mean, and because the persona within my mind that i believed is me is not going to win in all this, it wants to manipulate the situation so it can win - so the persona who I believed is me, uses the body to animate this desire to win by turning my head with eyes looking at the person where the sound came from and saying, 'don't call me 'hey', my name is June'

I animate the illusion within my mind to make it look as if it is REAL

Is this what we can really call REAL?

The Word Web Definition of the word 'REAL'
Being or occurring in fact or actuality; having verified existence; not illusory

Expanding the Definition of the Word 'REAL'

Being or occurring in fact or in actuality - as someone/something standing for what is best for all; having verified existence; not illusory in a way that one's standing for what is best for all can be proven and are aligned to what is best for all life - humans, animals, plants ..

Benefitting the Whole:

Being or occurring in fact - has to be aligned to what is best for all, realizing that what  is best for all is also what is best for me or the individual

Benefitting the Individual: 
Being or occurring in fact - within what is best for the individual only, is self-interest and will not benefit the whole

We are parts of the whole - that is Life

The next time someone said 'hey', and you looked at the direction of the person saying 'hey' with your eyes and said,  'my name is '___', or there's a reaction within you, investigate if it is the persona that you think you really are, that said it or that persona behaved it or that persona reacted to it. If it is so, forgive and correct oneself. Let's be REAL, self-realization is really about that!

21 Day Investigation On Words and Behavior


Looking At The Mind Interpretation Within This Mind Pattern

Mind Pattern
>don't call me 'hey', call me by my name,  June 
>why is he calling me hey?
>I got to tell him to call me by my name 
>but that's a tic

The Mind Interpretation: The Subjective View of Reality

Note: I am looking at each part of the mind pattern below

>don't call me 'hey', call me by my name, 'June'

Here, I have an idea that L has to call me by my name.

Here's my Belief:
Belief
(Word Web: Any cognitive content held as true)

'I live with him, so I am not a stranger to him - he knows me'

This knowing that I am referring to here is not real knowing but a mind knowing.

I as the personality that is an alternate version of myself in my mind is what I believed as the real me, based on my mind perception of myself. This is the mind me that interprets reality according to a subjective interpretation of what I perceive - as who I have become - my thoughts, Imaginations, backtalks, reactions, and behavior. - an experience of ourselves as the mind, rather than a real experience of/as who we really are.

Beliefs:
Who I really am are my thoughts
Who i really am are my imaginations
Who I really am are my backtalks or backchats or mind chatters
Who I really am are my reactions
Who I really am are my behaviors

I see L the same way, as a personality that is an interpretation of him (as who he really is) in my mind.
It is NOT who we really are.

These are 2 alternate versions of ourselves.formed from our interpretation of who each other is in our mind.

Reality as A Mind Interpretation of What Is Perceived Within Our Mind:

Word Web
Reality
All of your experiences that determine how things appear to you

Reality as What It Is 
Expanded Definition of the Word 'Reality'

All our physical experiences of ourselves that is based on our perception of things as what they really are - perceived through our physical senses.

If we look at who we really are. we can see that we are all birthed here living this one life - equal and one.

Realizing and Living My Utmost Potential 9: Health, Teaching and A Family of 4 Attending My Cooking Class

 
A 10 year old cooking a Meal
FREE E-BOOKS
Life Support
Living Principles:
 Links To Parts 1-8 of Realizing and Living My Utmost Potential


A family of 4 attended my cooking class last July 25. The Mom, the Dad and the two kids were present - one girl and 1 boy. The boy is 12 years old and the girl is 10 years old.

 The 12 yr old was the first to volunteer to do the cooking and then the 10 year old. I set it up in such a way that we'Il be selecting our own ingredients ourselves.
So, rather than me being the authority for all to look up to for information and knowledge regarding how to cook, how and what to cook, I gave everyone the authority to decide what ingredients to cook with. 

I see teaching as an equal and one opportunity to guide oneself, and so others, to train/walk the process to learn from ones own exploration of the physical such as within cooking - which is about exploring the physical act of cooking coming from a starting point of what is best for oneself in terms of individual nutrition to support the body optimally, and what is best for all - where animals and plants are not judged as good or bad, but rather, acknowledged for being here to support the body to survive through proper farming methods that will give them the care they need where they will also be able to express themselves.

Here's how I saw a cooking class before and I want to look at my mind pattern:
>I have to show everyone how good i am in cooking
>but someone might be better than me 
>ooops I better brush up on my cooking skills 

In this mind pattern i have an idea of what a cooking class should be. Then, i project my  compared myself with others in the class or  the iron chefs for example on tv, where I am impulsed by what i've seen in the media. I then judge myself as inferior and then compete with them in my mind - where the definition of the word 'cooking' itself was not seen, but was associated to a subjective interpretation of reality. Instead of forgiving myself for this, I believed that was a normal thing to do, not realizing this is consequential for the body as I manipulate my body to manifest my mind's desire rather than express myself as who I really am within what I do.

So here's my self- forgiveness for being directed by the mind:
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have the idea that i have to show everyone how good i cook believing what I saw in the media that good cooks become famous and is being paid more money. I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to judge myself as inferior then project the polarity opposite of that onto someone believing that - my interpretation was what it was in reality. I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to brush up on my cooking skills as a form of manipulation - manipulating the body to learn and enact what i desire.

Word Web
Cooking
The act of preparing something (as food) by the application of heat
My Expanded Definition: Food as a substance that nourishes the body is being applied with heat or being prepared to make it easy to digest so nourishment can be distributed to the body.

Phonology/Sounding
COO - ing to please the KING 
COOK the ING-redients for body support

During the beginning of the class, I asked everyone what is their definition of 'Health'. What I got was:
'Health is giving your body that which is good' 
 'Health is not giving your body that which will make it sick'
 'Health is giving the body something that supports a part of the body to function effectively'

In the Word Web, 'Health' is defined as 'absence of disease'. 
Do you wonder why we spend our lives resisting disease or fearing having a disease? Eventually, we get what we resist - because what we resist persist.

Wikipedia:
Health 
The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
My Expanded Definition:
body-mind-social alignment that leads to well-being as homeostasis within a balanced ecosystem of money without where all have basic necessities to survive,

Phonology/Sounding
From
HEAL T-hrough H-ealth
To
HE-al AL-l T-hrough H-omeostasis 'within and without' 
Note: a balanced ecosystem of money where all will be given the basic necessities to survive and that includes money to buy food.
