Letter about Donation to Michael for the DP

Dear Michael,

I wish I could give you money, but I can't afford to. I'm poor and have had a difficult 10 years, though the last two to three years have been much better than the seven to eight preceding them.

To avoid a long story, my health was and is the problem. Dentistry nearly killed me. It destroyed me in most ways, including financially. It prevented me from living my life, living it how healthy people do when they reach maturity stages in their lives: meet someone to date then marry, buy a home and save money for themselves and their creation or creations, their child or children.

Physically and spiritually I wasn't destroyed but the former state was somewhat close. Because the former state was how it was, the latter is stronger than it was. Perhaps it is strong, but if it isn't, it grows daily. If it is strong, still it grows daily.

Its strength is in the form my faith in doctors and the medical establishment changed to, resistance. Where I believed that doctors were competent, wanting to do good and were positioned to do good for and to me, that belief withered and metamorphosed into resistance. Resistance came from accepting what they said, how they said it and didn't say as if it was code to inform me what to do to get well: continue to study, form what I was going to say to evoke the doctor to call for tests and to go where getting well occurs: Use the system against itself.

So much about health have I learned that when I'm in solitude thinking about health and the individual I'm in awe of what surrounds him. What surrounds him is a system wherein activity about health is not the system despite its size, its proximity, to him but is an appendage of the system.

A system. A system, a thing whose existence is the automation, therefore enumeration and minimization, of life -- its enslavement and death. The system consists of all facets of life and is covering the world. This subject, health, is just one of the facets if evidenced only by how people talk about it: care, health care, healthcare -- another word that isn't a word a vast number of words surround to mold the mind then body into bondage. Unbelievable.

That is why I cannot give money now. Someday I'll donate money to you, Michael. That day will be after I'm healthy and have provided for myself to spare money. I'm better now than I was this time last year, as I was better then than I was the year before then. So I give what I can to the DP: my thoughts -- in hope that someone will use them to improve his mind and health. That's why I contributed to stillwater's health post, my second favorite post, which is behind his how-to-think post. Such posts could be only on a website whose members want truth, what all things good come from and are in.

Michael, thank you for the Daily Paul.
