"When you are ill or disabled, do not feel you have failed in some way, do not feel guilty. Do not blame life for treating you unfairly, but do not blame yourself either. All that is resistance.
If you have a major illness, use it for enlightenment. Anything "bad" that happens in your life - use it for enlightenment.
Withdraw time from the illness. Do not give it any past or future. Let it force you into intense present-moment awareness - and see what happens."
By the way... I found a link today on YouTube that has the entire audiobook of "Practicing the Power of Now" (7 1/2 hours!). Here it is. http://www.youtube.com/
