Wooden Leg
Making Medicine
printer friendly version
To make medicine is to engage upon a special period of fasting,
thanksgiving, prayer and self-denial, even of self-torture. The
procedure is entirely a devotional exercise. The purpose is to
subdue the passions of the flesh and to improve the spiritual
self. The bodily abstinence and the mental concentration upon
lofty thoughts cleanses both the body and the soul and puts
them into or keeps them in health. Then the individual mind
gets closer toward conformity with the mind of the Great
Medicine above us.
