I found this in my files. I have no idea who wrote it but I love it.
Are you seeking cure or healing?
Cure is the elimination of a disease
Healing is the giving of wholeness to the person, a sense of integration and peace
Cure separates body, mind and spirit
Healing embraces the whole
Cure combats illness
Healing fosters wellness
Cure alters what is
Healing offers what might be
Cure is a closed system
Healing is an open system
Cure encounters mystery as a challenge for understanding
Healing encounters mystery as a channel for meaning
Cure rejects death and views it as a defeat
Healing includes death among the blessed outcomes of care
Cure seeks to conquer pain
Healing seeks to transcend pain
