Worry, fear & doubt bad for health

“Worry, fear, and doubt are detrimental to good health, of course, and these are very often caused by the officially held beliefs of society.
“Those beliefs paint a dire picture, in which any given situation is bound to deteriorate.  Any conceivable illness will worsen, and any possible catastrophe be encountered.
“Such beliefs discourage feelings of curiosity, joy, or wonder.  They inhibit playful activity or spontaneous behavior.  They cause a physical situation in which the body is placed in a state of defensive aggression.  Under such conditions. it seems only rational to look for the worm in the apple, so to speak, and to expect pain or danger in each new experience or encounter.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session April 10, 1984)
