But real health, durable and joyous, comes from detoxification, removal of the poisons by wisdom, insight into the true nature if reality, the experience of the self being one with the universe, filled with energy and bliss, not needing to be greedy, not fearing or hating anyone, but being joyfully compassionate to all, seen as ultimately the same as oneself and beautiful in their relative difference—just as one sees one’s beloved child or lover or good friend. This is the true health of enlightenment.
