Ah yes, cancer.
The Norwegian press went into depth about what he had to say about cancer in his recent book Spirit Hacking which was stopped by the publishers in Norway to the considerable anger of Durek.
The paper VG have counted Verrek using the words cancer no less than 26 times, so it's not just a passing mentioning as Durek tried to explain to the press in connection with the book being stopped.
In the chapter: It's all about the root.
Durek writes about illnesses. He writes that conventional doctors consider too few factors when they look for the cause of an illness.
"For example they believe the cause for cancer is basically in the genes."
Durek says that genetic codes can be inherited, but they must be activated. Such codes are activated by markers, according to Durek.
Such markers can be "mental stress" or "emotional pollution."
"These markers is what makes the (cancer) cells to develop (he uses the word "morph") and that's what creates the toxic, internal environments where these cells can multiply, become tumors, grow and grow and grow and grow."
He writes on that it makes no difference what hyper-extra-über-super-strong allopatic cancer-killer you attack the tumor with, if you don't change the inner environment.
"The only way to change the inner environment is by adjusting the makers and go to the core."
From a shamanistic perspective this core or marker can be anything: Like what words you tell yourself, the house you live in, the people you are with among a long list of examples mentioned in the book.
"Or it can be because they (the patients) hate their lives, hate themselves, but because they can be honest about it they create an illness, because they don't want to be here anymore."
It's actually pretty common - that people become ill as a -quick fix- and as a simple way out."
Verrek claims in his book, that people would rather fall ill than admit the truth, which is: "I really don't want to live."
"The conscious brain can't handle this level of truth, just as most people can't handle this level of truth from a friend or family member. So the conscious part of the brain denies the truth, while the subconscious part turn it into an incurable disease."
And this is how he works with cancer patients on a hospital:
"The first question I always ask is: Why do you want this cancer? A few are upset about this. Children on the other hand don't feel the same way. When I work with children and ask them why they want their cancer, they respond directly: Because I don't want to be here anymore."
In another chapter: Attention creates reality, he explains why attention controls what becomes a reality.
"To control our attention is like deciding how we want the world to look like."
Again he takes up cancer.
"Let's say that someone is diagnosed with cancer and they say: I must fight cancer. I must conquer this cancer. I must not let the cancer kill me.
I really doesn't matter what they do and how many treatments they go through. I can at once tell that they are creating an experience for themselves, where it becomes unlikely that they will triumph over cancer. To focus so much of the attention on fighting cancer and standing up to cancer, only strengthen cancer, because it is all about cancer, cancer, cancer."
Because when the attention is directed towards fighting cancer, we are dependent on the cancer being in the body, giving us something to fight against.
Instead he believe that a cancer patient must focus away from the cancer and commit himself to thrive in a healthy body and to live a long, active life.
"Because then we change focus to the health and the recovery we experience, rather than the illness we wish to transform. That gives the universe the opportunity to reinforce our health correspondingly."
- Right, this was very easy to translate, but does it make sense to you what he says and means?
To me it means that all illness is psychosomatic and ignoring it not only keeps you free from decease but cures you should you (somewhat contradictory) contract one.
Don't know about the legislation in your countries but Norway has a legislation about "kvaksalveri" = being a practicing quack, especially if it constitutes a direct (even if it is only a potential) danger to the lives and health of the patients. Durek could face prosecution under the penal code if he actively "practiced" this in Norway.
As such the book being turned down by the publishers is no surprise.
