Post The Visit
During this past week, I have been visited by a dear friend: Illness. I know what you are thinking, "Is illness a dear friend?" Even Lord Buddha called it one of the three evils: Old Age, Illness, and Death.

I call Illness a friend. Do not qet me wrong, I do not enjoy being ill. Nevertheless, illnes reminds me of the constant changes that we suffer through life. Nothing is permanent. That is the Great Law of the Universe. So illness comes into my life, and makes a mess of my personal and professional life. Of course, at the beginning I become very upset. Then I realize that Illness is a hidden friend or teacher; it comes to remind me that life is impermanent. Only then does serenity return to the mind.

But Illness also teaches me how I have violeted the simple rules of good health. It is not God or the Gods who have brought Illness to my life, I have invited it with my bad health habits. I have been calling at its door.

I must always remember that everything that happens to me is a lesson. I must always find serenity in whatever happens to me. That is the Great Lesson. This time the lesson was very clear, keep good health habits and DRINK a lot of WATER.

I am feeling much stronger. I am also trying to enjoy drinking water. I was recently bedridden. I am taking part of my annual leave, and I will be visiting everyone of my physicians.

I have found that sometimes only water will do.
