Then there is fear. If there is a dog in your street, and you show the dog that you are afraid, it will attack you. So it is with disease. I know this through my own experience. When I used to go about in India to give concerts, I used to think, "What will happen ill have a cold on the day of the concert? If it comes before it does not matter, but if it comes on the day of the concert, it will be terrible." And on the day of the concert the cold came and went into my throat. Until I learned the way of it the cold would always come. Another thought is, "What will become of me? I am well this week, but how shall I be next week? I may be ill. I am well this year, but next year I may be ill. I must take some precautions."
