Cigarettes do NOT cause cancer, cholesterol does NOT cause heart disease, stress does NOT cause high blood pressure, poor nutrition does NOT cause immunity dysfunctions! There is no physical cause for anything ... everything that manifests arrives due to the conditioning that one came in with. The SELF may use a vehicle such as smoking as a conduit for a physical message such as lung cancer, but its ‘real’ cause began with one’s conditioning.
For example, ‘shame’ can make you feel like you can’t breathe. If the shame is not looked at by many gentler ‘triggers’ offered, the SELF ‘will’ find a way of getting one’s attention in a much more dramatic way ... such as lung cancer. Whether one recognizes the cancer or heart attack or stroke or diabetes [or many other diseases] as messages with far deeper roots than physical behavior, is another matter.
The false self does NOT recognize 'real cause' and depending on how prevalent its illusory presence is can block these messages and either the body departs the earth-dream, or the SELF uses other outlets to get the attention of the slumbering God-SELF. Guilt, shame, remorse and unworthiness … the foundation of conditioning, veils the Real YOU. As long as you believe you are a separate body-mind-identity [person], your conditioning will send you 'triggering' messages through your body and/or experiences to get you to look at who you are NOT that hides the Real YOU. This is the ‘Divine Discontent’ that turns Attention inward where Truth resides.
