A post from one of my MySpace friends "Tribe of Eden" on Incurable Diseases and the power of love!

Hello my bald brothers and sisters!
I have asked one of my MySpace friends if I could copy his post here. Bryan Eden is part of "Tribe of Eden" a group of hardrockers bringing a positive message to the world through their music. He shared this story in a recent bulletin and I wanted to share it all with you! I am certain, that as Bryan proved...with love...anything is possible! Enjoy and please visit his sites that I listed at the bottom. I thought this was an incredbily powerful testiment to what is possible! And loved that it came from the heart of a rocker!!!

Body: DEAR FRIENDS -- I receive so much love from the friends and fans of TRIBE OF EDEN , and sometimes I can give back by sharing the hard-won lessons in courage , faith and love that I have learned in a miraculous life. I wrote this letter -- about my own healing from a supposedly incurable illness -- to a friend I met through MySpace , upon reading about her brave struggle with multiple sclerosis.

"DEAR FRIEND -- I see that you are living with multiple sclerosis. That’s a tough path to grow from. I know about being chronically ill because I came down with ankolosing spondylitis ( a devastating degenerative illness ) in my early 20’s. The pain was uncontrollable, excruciating and 24/7 for many years. My healing process began when I realized that I had to do the exact opposite of everything I had ever been taught. In a word, I had to stop fighting and fearing the pain and completely experience it . That moment of decision was the beginning of my spiritual path. I learned that this was equally true for my emotional pain also. The years of anguish challenged me to learn big lessons about surrender and trust -- trusting myself , my body, and life. I learned to respond to my pain with courage, kindness and compassion . And, ultimately, I learned that i could not heal my life without facing all my fears and letting them go . After 10 years of yoga, careful diet, holistic medicine, and most of all deep inner transformation -- I was able to cure myself completely. I had found the place deep inside that was deeper than the disease - the place miracles and healing come from . Everyone has their own unique path and lessons to learn, but I will say that loving myself, opening my heart and fighting to become MORE ALIVE -- as opposed to an approach of fighting AGAINST the illness -- was what kept my spirit moving forward and growing through it all and in the end made releasing my illness possible. I wish you many miracles -- both physical and spiritual -- and may your love and your spirit always stay strong .

Wherever you are in your life , my friends -- I wish you the courage to reach out for miracles -- and the open heart to receive them .
