Psycho-somatic illness is: a form of insanity that bridges the separation between the mind and body. It’s an insanity where the delusion is expressed in the body but, if you try to think it away, the delusion inflames the mind...
Solving a mind-body problem requires a mind-body change, not a change in just one or the other. If you want a change in your somatic situation you must work toward psychological change as well. This is not just a change in patterns but a change in spirit. A fundamental change of character, but to this, the ego never agrees.
“I sense the need for a new kind of mind of individuals who are integrators, as distinct from the reductionists.” ― Jonas Salk
