Esoteric Healing - Chapter VIII - The Laws and Rules Enumerated and Applied
  1. The fight between the forces produces all disease, all ills and bodily pains which seek release through death. [596]

There is here an interesting distinction which should be noted. Death, when it comes, is the result of two things:

  1. The fight between the forces, and not between energy and the forces. The area of conflict is the etheric body and the physical body, and no energies are coming in from without because the man is too ill.
  2. The loss of the will-to-live. The patient has given in; the internal fight is too much for him; he can bring in no outside energy to combat the warring forces, and he has reached the point where he does not want to do so.

These two phases of the process of dying are indicative of the destiny of the patient, and should be immediately noted by the healer who (when he finds them present) will then apply his skill in aiding the man to die and will not attempt to effect a cure. The door of entry for the life-giving energies is sealed; nothing can enter to aid the healer in his work, and the conflict between the forces - of a general nature or confined to a bitter fight in a particular area - produces so much friction that there is no hope anywhere, except in death. In this sentence, it might be pointed out that disease refers to the point of friction or of acute trouble; all ills has reference to the general reaction of the man to the area of difficulty and to the general disability produced by the disease, whilst bodily pain refers to the discomfort of the area where the disease is located and which is indicative of its nature. All words in these laws and rules are most carefully chosen, and even if inadequate from the translator's point of view, are not redundant but express different meanings.
