We often apply band-aids to our wounds instead of learning about and addressing the cause of our maladies.
We often fail to examine the SOURCE of our problems.
Spiritual-religious advice: Seek out the cause of your problems. (Hint: it might be within.)
Dr. Gabor Mate is the staff physician at the Portland Hotel. I’ve heard his talks on Democracy Now and loved what I heard. He talks about how prevalent it is for us to seek a cause without seeking out how to stem the problem at the source — how many medical problems stem from societal and social problems.
On Friday, April 29, Dr. Mate will be at the Skirball Cultural Center speaking about his newest book, In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Trauma, Addiction and Healing. I’m going. You? If yes, click now to RSVP. Hope to see you there. (CEU’s available.) $15 suggested donation.
