Is your body ill or is it that your soul's sick?


I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections.

And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly that I am ill.

I am ill because of wounds to the soul, to the deep emotional self

and the wounds to the soul take a long, long time, only

time can help

and patience, and a certain kind of repentance

long, difficult repentance, realisation of life’s mistake,

and freeing oneself

from the endless repetition of this mistake

which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify.

D.H. Lawrence
