A description of the experience

The Enchridion

           9. Sickness is a hindrance to the body, but not to your

           ability to choose, unless that is your choice. Lameness is a

           hindrance to the leg, but not to your ability to choose. Say

           this to yourself with regard to everything that happens, then

           you will see such obstacles as hindrances to something else,

           but not to yourself.
