|Flu: Your graduation disease
In a certain sense, you're not really an immuner until you've cured something, albeit possibly only a small thing, like the flu.
Well, now, here I should acknowledge that to most people in the world today, the flu is no small matter. It kills kids and old people, even in the good old USA. And it can economically cripple organizations by keeping large portions of their staff away from work for weeks. The flu is a small matter only to someone who's graduated -- i.e., become an immuner.
When I say graduated, I don't mean graduated our Cure College. I'm not sure anybody ever "graduates," though you could draw all kinds of fancy distinctions and say that that some of us are in grad school and some are doing post-doctoral work, etc. But that would be stretching the metaphor to the breaking point.
No, I just mean graduated from
"preparatory" school. Maybe this metaphor can stand a little work, and I'm sure
I'll get around to it someday, but you probably get the point. Flus, for immuners, are
easy. When you listen to the Spot-Cure Hotline
you hear people curing them, or at least getting symptom reduction, in minutes. I'm saying
that curing a flu constitutes some sort of graduation because there are thousands of
peripheral benefits that happen when you cure flu, and also that curing your flu, and
knowing that you did that, is kind of a rite of passage for an immuner.
Am I suggesting that you race right out and get yourself exposed, so that you can go through this rite of passage?
Well, I wasn't actually thinking of that when I started writing this, but now that I have, it might actually not be a bad idea -- a little foolish, though. Anyway, don't worry, because if you're absolutely unwilling to inconvenience yourself you will soon be exposed. If you're unwilling to inconvenience yourself, then you start to notice all the ways that you were inconveniencing yourself back when you were scared of the flu, before you started testing that you could cure it, and you just naturally start to do things that put you in the flu's way, for convenience sake.
Also, people who start to suspect that they're assimilating immunics tend to want to visit people who are sick with the flu, rather than avoiding them, because we like helping people. We have talent, and we feel with that talent goes responsibility. Plus, helping people is intrinsically fun.
Isn't what I'm talking about here, and the whole immunics thing really, a little risky? Well, sure, but not when you know that you can cure things. And since you can do an awful lot of immunics before you ever cure anything physical, flu or otherwise -- maybe you don't have anything to cure; some of us didn't when we started -- when you test thing after thing and later discover that each test was dead on right, it becomes obvious to you that you can cure things, and easily cure the flu or other virus. People who do immunics become a lot more willing to take risks, a quality most shrinks say is good.
Another way of putting this is that immunics makes things that were risky before less risky. It's sort of like stock trading on insider information, but just not as mean or illegal. I never feel like I'm taking risks anymore, even when I do things that I used to think I would have to be totally crazy to even attempt.
Why don't we just try testing right now? Ask;
And if you tested no, don't worry -- just retest the question later. You'll soon start getting "yes" if you just practice immunics. Or maybe you'll start getting "yes" if you just keep re-testing the question, without even practicing. Any kind of testing at all makes you better at immunics.
And if you start to get the flu, and you're
having a little trouble stopping it, just call the Spot-Cure Hotline, or listen to the
archived Hotline shows on the Web, and you'll pick up the knack of killing it.
The Spot-Cure Hotline isn't just a nice place to teach you how to cure the flu; it's a clearinghouse for a global anti-disease movement.
People all over the world are calling radio and TV news shows to tell them about it, and get word that it exists on the air. People who call in to the Spot-Cure Hotline go from being half-baked immuners to disease activists in 20 minutes.
The underlying reasons for this, I believe, is that the flu, or more precisely the possibility of getting it, is the disease equivalent of a "mark of oppression," like the Star of David armbands that the Nazis forced the Jews to wear during the Holocaust. Discovering that we can cure flu, and doing so, or discovering that we are immune to flu, or at least not as susceptible as people around us, catapults us into a revolutionary reality, and gives us the attitude toward life of any person who has stood up to any form of oppression.
In Africa years ago, the neo-Nazi régime that imposed apartheid on the black majority forced blacks to carry passes. In those days the revolutionary action was to throw your pass into a bonfire in the street. Our equivalent action in our disease-oppressed culture is to kill your own flu. But that can't be the end of it.
In order for your flu cure to be a revolutionary act, you must find every available means to tell the world, including your doctor, that you've cured it. Just as in Africa during the apartheid days, it would not have been a revolutionary action but simply a sneaky misdemeanor for a black person to burn his pass in secret in an ashtray at home.
It is also obvious to me that when we take a
revolutionary anti-disease action, our personal immunity skyrockets. Just as an alcoholic
must tell everyone he or she knows and meets that: 1) he is an alcoholic in recovery; 2)
she fully intends to abstain from all acting out addictive behaviors, including but not
limited to drinking, so must an immuner be in a revolutionary stance in order to achieve
maximal personal forward progress.
When you cure flu you make a discovery
You discover, albeit in a somewhat incomplete way, that you can cure most other things: all by yourself, and/or possibly with a little help from your friends.
Telling people about that discovery causes an expanded commitment to cure anything and everything, which in turn reverberates through us and causes us to do immunics throughout the day and remove all forms of noxious conditions and limitations. This boosts our immune systems further. We become used to doing immunics. Do this and you'll probably never get cancer. But if you do, you'll be able to do with your cancer what you hear people with cancer who called in to the Cure Show do, and probably a lot quicker.
The highway stretches wide before us. Let's take that long walk to freedom. By the way, The Long Walk To Freedom is the title of a very good book. Thank God you don't have to go through to kill flu what Nelson Mandela went through to liberate Africa.
