What is the Cause?

The question most people think they need an answer to is what is the cause of their this or that? Many people pay it lip service, but what is cause really? Going with the bucket analogy, what is the cause of one of the symptoms or diseases not being covered by water, or being expressed? Could it be that water is leaking out of the bucket through the holes? Which hole is the "cause" of the symptoms or disease being expressed? That is kind of a trick question.

It is not just one hole that causes a symptom or disease to be expressed. All the holes lead to the decreased level of water. Or, said another way, there is not just one cause to any symptom or disease. In fact, everything you did or didn't do up to that point in your life has some role in the symptoms or disease you are expressing. Most people are looking for a cause, and no one ever stopped to question if there even was only one cause . . . until now. The cause, if you really need to have one, is a lack of health.

To get people to immediately stop looking for the one cause that doesn't exist would be tough. Because looking for the cause of something is so ingrained into our thinking, into our very way of automatic reaction, that stopping the never-ending quest for "cause" immediately is like expecting a huge semi truck to stop instantly, even though it is going down the highway at 70 miles per hour (120 km/h).

With one little change, two little words, the track that most people head down when looking for the cause would be much more effective. That is, switching one's frame of mind from looking for the cause to looking for the major contributing factors, because some things contribute more to certain symptoms and disease than others. Some contribute more directly, other less directly. Switching to looking for contributing factors instead of the cause will make a quantum leap in how effective the treatment of the symptoms and disease becomes.

That is worth saying again, in BOLD. There is not one cause to anything. There are infinite amounts of contributing factors to the symptoms or disease being expressed. Some contributing factors have a bigger impact than others.

So if you continue to treat your symptoms and disease, look for the major contributing factors and eliminate them. I say this because often people say things like, I tried quitting eating sugar, and it didn't work (so they eat sugar again) I tried quitting smoking and that didn't work (so they are smoking again) I tried exercising and that didn't work ( so they are not exercising anymore) etc. etc. People try one thing believing there is "one cause". And if that one thing doesn't work, they stop doing it or begin doing it again. It is about eliminating contributing factors.

If you continue to look for contributing factors you must also add to your health. No matter what you do, the only way to be permanently healthy is to add to your health. There is no way around this.
