The Cloud of unknowing
Type of spiritual experience
In the Cloud of unknowing there is no attempt to provide techniques to help remove sensory sensations caused by ill health as there is in yoga or Qi-gong for example, however, the author recognises the need to be healthy and recognises the need to keep fit, but simply offers words of support rather than practical help………
A description of the experience
The Cloud of Unknowing
I am serious when I say that this work demands a relaxed, healthy and rigorous disposition of both body and spirit. ….. discipline yourself in body and spirit so that you preserve your health as long as you can. But if, despite your best efforts, illness overtakes you, be patient in bearing it and humbly wait for God's mercy. This is enough.
