Cure or Healing?

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 fixes

Healing corrects


Cure isolates

Healing incorporates


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

      1. I dont think they are mutually exclusive. I feel they are intertwined. I can move into the feeling and meaning of both, find the cure AND the healing If I allow it. This is a beautiful piece, and I saved it.
