Illness and death are unavoidable for everyone. Illness is unwanted and death is horrible. How on earth should one live a life to be less ill and more healthy? For illness and death, everyone knows that they will come sooner or later. Everyone is waiting for them in fear helplessly. However, there is indeed method that can make people have good health and a long life and indeed method that can make people not afraid of death. Such method can be found in the classic and the medical book The Inner Canon of Huangdi. What is regretful is that most of the modern people do not read the classics and can not understand the classics. Many people speak of The Inner Canon of Huangdi but fewer people can follow it really. Therefore, facing illness and death, the doctors can not defeat them, isn’t it the tragedy of human beings?
Speaking of the classics, the people will naturally think of the religions such as Buddhism, Taoism, Islamism and Catholicism. Every religious sect has its own religious etiquette, doctrine and classics. Here I want explain that illness and health as well as life and death have nothing to do with any religion. For thousands of years, people won’t avoid illness and death for the religions. The reason why each religion can be inherited constantly is that the scholars recognize that the core inherited by the religion is the classics. And the classics are the crystallization of human wisdom as well as the truth of the universe, the heaven and earth and the life. Each religious sect only inherits the classics in different forms. Therefore, each country on the earth grants the freedom for religious faith.
For example, those who can really understand and follow Tao Te Ching surely will have good health and a long life and can also solve the problem of being afraid of death. Therefore, as for those knowing the truth, good health and long life is not difficult and so is death without any illness. Illness and health as well as life and death are the most important events of one’s life. But we always ignore the important things and grasp the petty things since we are unaware of the truth.
