I don’t suppose there’s any greater incidence of cancer in this little northern Rocky Mountain town where I live than anywhere else. But it seems to occupy a goodly amount of space in local newspaper articles.

One of the “common elements,” if you will, of those articles is the phrase “battling cancer.” Even those who survive have “battled cancer.” Those who didn’t survive “lost the battle to cancer.”

Why do we focus on fighting battles instead of healing bodies? After all, if you’re battling cancer, you’re also battling your body. Pardon the pun, but that’s a losing battle if I ever saw one.

Some years ago, we did an article on this very subject. Here’s part of what Spirit said:

“It’s important for you, and it is not certainly the general practice in your society today, to shift your perspective of your physical bodies. Most of you on the earth plane view your body as ‘the enemy.’

“That is not an exaggeration. All you need to do is look at your mainstream news media. Look at your traditional medical literature and practices. Your body is your enemy. You talk, for example, of someone battling cancer, of someone fighting AIDS. You talk about the war on cancer, the war on AIDS. You have got wars on every imaginable health hazard.

“The upshot of it all is that many of you, if not most of you, view your own bodies as your enemy. Nothing could be farther from the truth than that.
