This quote from William LePar’s spiritual source The Council gives us advice on how to look at disease.
Questioner: Can the Council address the cause of mental illness? Is it a Spiritual Crisis?
The Council: All illnesses, whether physical or mental, are part of the life plan. In many cases, a situation needs to be created where other people have an opportunity to show their love and compassion. Sometimes certain mental illnesses prevent a person from making mistakes that they have made many times in previous lives. But we must learn to look at every disease, be it physical or spiritual, in this way: These individuals have been blessed and have come in to give each of you the opportunity to serve, to express your love, your piety. Such situations, caused by physical or mental illness, should not be viewed as a karmic state for that individual. This is not a loving attitude. Consider it very productive and positive for yourself. This is your opportunity to show whether you are a loving God or a selfish person who is turning down the opportunity to give. As with physical problems, mental illness originally begins with a dysfunction of the body, as everything has to work or have rules in place in order to create a common ground. At the heart of any emotional problem or mental illness is chemistry, blood chemistry and how it affects any parts or organs of the body. That is the law of nature or the rule of nature under which such conditions arise.
Remember that any illness, regardless of what it is, is your opportunity to serve another person and that you are serving yourself, and that is good because you are showing yourself how divine you really can be when you serve yourself that way. Taking care of the sick is certainly not an easy task, but remember, when there is something of value, when there is something real, it takes a lot of work. The things that you achieve in this life of a spiritual nature will not necessarily always come easily, but once you have acquired them you will Never lose it. You become part of your spiritual wealth, wealth that will never be taken away.
