Living as if the world out there were somehow separate from us opens the door to the belief system of judgement and the chemical expressions of that judgment in our bodies. Thus we tend to see our world in terms of good germs and bad germs, and use words such as toxins and waste to describe the by-products of the very functions that give us life. It is in such a world that our bodies may become a combat zone for forces at odds with one another, creating the biological battlegrounds that play out as illness and disease.
The holistic perspective of the Essenes sees all facets of our bodies as elements of one sacred and divine force moving through creation. Each is an expression of God. In a world where all that we may know and experience originates from such a unified source, bacteria, germs, and the by-products of our bodies work together to imbue our bodies with strength and life. This view invites us to redefine the tears, perspiration, blood, and products of digestion that we have known as waste as sacred elements of the earth that have served us, rather than abhorrent by-products that must be eliminated, discarded, and destroyed.
