Illness is disharmony, either physical disharmony or mental disharmony; the one acts uponthe other. What causes disharmony? The lack of tone and rhythm. How can it be interpretedin physical terminology? Prana, or life, or energy is the tone. Circulation, regularity is therhythm; regularity in the beatings of the heart, of the pulse and the circulation of the bloodthrough the veins. In physical terms, the lack of circulation means congestion; and the lack ofPrana, or life, or energy means weakness. These two conditions attract illness and are thecause of illness. In mental terms the rhythm is the action of the mind, whether the mind isactive in harmonious thoughts or in disharmonious thoughts, whether the mind is strong, firm,and steady, or whether it is weak.If one continues to think harmonious thoughts it is just like regular beating of the pulse andproper circulation of the blood. If the harmony of thought is broken, then the mind becomescongested. Then a person loses memory; depression comes as the result, and what onesees is nothing but darkness. Doubt, suspicion, distrust, and all manner of distress anddespair come when the mind is congested in this way. The Prana of the mind is maintainedwhen the mind can be steady in thoughts of harmony; then the mind can balance itsthoughts, then it cannot be easily shaken, then doubt and confusion cannot easily overpowerit. Whether it is nervous illness, whether it is mental disorder, whether it is physical illness, atthe root of all these different aspects of illness there is one cause, and that cause isdisharmony.The body, which has once become disharmonious, turns into a receptacle of disharmoniousinfluences, of disharmonious atoms; it partakes of them without knowing it; and so it is withthe mind. The body which is already lacking in health is more susceptible to illness than thebody which is perfectly healthy; and so the mind which already has a disorder in it is moresusceptible to every suggestion of disorder, and in this way goes from bad to worse.Scientists of all ages have found that each element attracts the same element, and so it isnatural that illness should attract illness; thus in plain words disharmony attracts disharmony,whereas harmony attracts harmony. We see in everyday life that a person who has nothingthe matter with him and is only weak physically, or whose life is not regular, is alwayssusceptible to illness. Then, we see that a person who ponders often upon inharmoniousthoughts is very easily offended. It does not take long for him to get offended. A little thinghere and there makes him feel irritated, because irritation is already there. It wants just a littletouch to make it a deeper irritation.Besides this the harmony of the body and the mind depends upon one's external life, thefood one eats, the way one lives, the people one meets, the work one does, the climate inwhich one lives. There is no doubt that under the same conditions one person may be ill andanother may be well. The reason is that one is in harmony with the food he eats, with theweather he lives in, with the people whom he meets, with the conditions around him. Anotherperson revolts against the food he eats against the people he meets, against the conditionsthat surround him, against the weather he must live in. This is because he is not in harmony;and he perceives and experiences similar results in all things in his life. Disorder and illnessare the result.This idea can be very well demonstrated by the method that present-day physicians haveadopted, of inoculating a person with the same element which makes him ill. There is nobetter demonstration of this idea than the practice of inoculation. This puts a person inharmony with the thing that is opposed to his nature. If one understands this principle onecan inoculate oneself with all that does not agree with one, and with that to which one is
