If there be a blessing of having to deal with this condition for the past 45 years it is that it guided me onto the spiritual path in search of answers, truth and a cure.
So, what is the problem? In my quest for understanding, revelation and liberation I have come to believe that everything is spiritual at the “seed level.” And, furthermore, the physical material world is not only a very small percentage of all that is………. it is also the last manifestation; it is a result.
I think everyone who comes in contact with this dis-ease whether that be child, adult, parent, sibling, friend, doctor, CDE’s, Nurses, …… whoever…….is dealing with a condition that is one of The Adversary’s most favorite due to its’ insidious nature and because it blocks THE LIGHT so efficiently.
Before the invention of insulin some 100 years ago the prognosis was death within a matter of days or weeks. The method of death, a starvation process. I don’t mean to be morbid but to find solutions to the problem one must inquire into the truth and essence of the problem.
Without insulin the cells in the body cannot receive the glucose necessary to sustain life. As most of you know, insulin is a hormone whose purpose is to act as a “key” to unlock the cell door so that the glucose molecule may enter. Without the presence of insulin the door is closed and the glucose accumulates in the blood which leads to chaos throughout the whole system.
So, what is the problem? This is where it gets kinda cool, in my opinion. Type 1 diabetes can be seen as a metaphor for the experience that the soul endures when it separates from Source. The primary ‘spiritual’ issue with respect to diabetes is one of abandonment and a longing for hOMe.
No matter how much technology comes out to manage this condition I know that I am here to awaken to the spiritual lessons it provides. A matter-a-fact, I am starting to become more and more apprehensive and suspicious of the current and future technology. We are getting a little too close to trans-humanism for my taste. I want to know the true reason for human being in Universe before we move on.
I am certain we are close to a solution to the problem. In the meantime, it is important to engage as a warrior in the milieu of duality, division and delusion.
“Everything is dual, everything has poles, everything has its pair of opposites, like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.” –The Kybalion
