Knowledge reveals that curing an illness is the effect of medicine. Knowledge reveals that medicines that cure illness, which are generally accepted, are allopathy, homeopathy, ayurveda, unani and herbal.
Man and woman are conditioned by knowledge that medicine cures illness. Doctors who practise either allopathy or homeopathy too believe that medicines cure illness and this knowledge is ever so convincing to man and woman.
Wisdom regarding cure, however, reveals a different picture of cure, which is irrefutable. What is the wisdom regarding cure, is the question? Wisdom reveals that cure happens in a particular moment in life.
Wisdom reveals that a moment in life is always present. Wisdom reveals that a moment, which is always present in life, is precise. Wisdom reveals that the content which is within any moment is precise as well.
Wisdom reveals that the content, which is within any moment, cannot be other than the content which is in the moment. Wisdom reveals that the timing of the content within the moment is always precise as well.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content within the moment is neither late nor early. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment in life is always precisely on time.
Wisdom in life reveals that neither the moment nor the content of the moment has a cause. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment, which has no cause, cannot be other than the content in the moment, which has no cause.
Wisdom reveals that the content within the moment is due to a transformation- process. Wisdom reveals that every speck of life is energy and energy is neither created nor destroyed. Wisdom reveals that energy transforms from one form to another form in a particular moment.
Wisdom reveals that medicine, either allopathy or homeopathy, is the content within the moment, which is precise. The transformation-process of medicine, which is energy, creates the deception that the cause of cure is the content of the moment, which is either allopathy- or homeopathy-medicine or any other type of medicine. Wisdom reveals that the content of any moment has no cause. This reveals that cure, within a particular moment, is a transforming process that has no cause.
Knowledge takes medicines and cure for granted, but man and woman with this knowledge are not free from the shadows of emotion. Wisdom reveals that cure is a gift in life by the intelligence in life in the moment. Furthermore, man and woman with wisdom regarding cure are calm and patient.
The enlightened realise that illness and health is a precise transformation-process in life.

Life cannot be preempted, predicted, presumed, preferred, prejudged, preserved, premature. It is not accountable to anyone or to anything. There is nothing before it or after it for it has no place to be. It is not the result of any cause, nor vice versa. Furthermore, it is colourless, emotionless and casts no shadow. Understanding this is wisdom. In knowledge, however, there exists only illusion – that which seems to be. The mind of man is conditioned to the principle of cause and effect as irrefutable. Thus, man is the doer beyond peradventure - refuted. Man will come to realise what he is meant to.

German Translator‘s Note:
The cure of a disease requires knowledge of its cause. This is what knowledge proclaims. Then the therapy is decided by the doctor, therapist or other experts. But if there were a simple cause for the disease and its healing, there should not be so many different opinions about the type of therapy. That healing happens in as mysterious and unpredictable a way as the disease is wisdom shared here with humanity. Does this mean that medicine or therapy is useless because they are illusory? No, it means that illness and its therapy, including medicine, happen to man as part of life when it is meant to happen, and none of this can be avoided if it happens. So healing happens too when it is meant to happen. This wisdom does not free us from illness and suffering, albeit illusory, but at least from uncertainty and worry in the event of illness.
