Be Cautious But Not Fearful
Dread of disease precipitates disease. Through the very thought of sickness you bring it on yourself.
If you are constantly afraid of catching a cold, you will be more susceptible to it, no matter what you do to prevent it. Do not paralyse your will and nerves with fear.
When anxiety persists in spite of your will, you are helping to create the very experience you are dreading.
Thought has great power. Those who serve in hospitals seldom fall ill, because of their confident attitude. They are vitalized by their energy and strong thoughts.
For this reason, as you get older, it is best not to tell others your age. As soon as you do, they see that age in you and associate it with diminishing health and vitality.
The thought of advancing age creates anxiety, and thus you devitalize yourself. So keep your age private. Say to God: "I am immortal. I am blessed with the privilege of good health, and I thank Thee."
