When it comes to self-healing, the self is often the worst enemy. But the self is often the stumbling block to self-healing; indeed, the self is often the worst enemy in self-healing. Ironically enough, many of us may not want to be healed. Some of us may be psychosomatic: we "think" we are sick, and thinking can make it "real" - just like a self-fulfilling prophecy; some of us may even use our "sickness" to seek and solicit attention and care from others, especially our loved ones. Therefore, having the intent to heal is the first criteria for self-healing. There must be a deep desire to be healed, without which the healing process will never take place. To live well, life must have a purpose, and to be healed is an important driving force in life to achieve that goal. Unfortunately, many of us do not show any intent for self-healing due to a lack of purpose in life.
