#75 / The Anti-Cancer Mind

Food choices are at center of Anti-cancer, the book by David Servan-Schreiber that I took on my "hotspots tour" to Greece and Israel.

Most impressive to me, though, was his chapter on the "anti-cancer mind."

One lesson I took away was this: we are not wholly "determined" by our environment but are also "determining" of it, and our creative (and therefore healing) powers are mobilized when we recognize the reality of a life force that is beyond our own capabilities but upon which we can, in fact, rely. At the most granular level of our existence, our own actions, which generate "our life," are ultimately dependent on a life that we do not create, but which sustains and supports us and all our own works.
