“We must remove the word “impossible” from our vocabularies. As David Ben-Gurion once observed in another context, “Anyone who doesn’t believe in miracles is not a realist.” Moreover, when we see how terms like “spontaneous remission” or “miracle” mislead and confuse us, then we will learn. Such terms imply that the patient must be lucky to be cured, but these healings occur through hard work. They are not acts of God. Remember that one generation’s miracle may be another’s scientific fact. Do not close your eyes to acts or events that are not always measurable. They happen by means of an inner energy available to all of us. That’s why I prefer terms like “creative” or “self-induced” healing, which emphasize the patient’s active role. Let me show you how exceptional patients work to heal themselves.”
