In Dialogue with the Demon, Kip Morgan assumes the role of a detective seeking clues to his ill health, confronting that part of himself which places obstacles in the path of his own well being.
From Dialogue with the Demon:
"I believe in the mind-body principle: that ill health stems from ill thinking, and that changing one's thinking can alter one's health just as a change in health can alter one's thinking. The body is more resilient than we realize and many physical problems, if weathered without accepting them as the new norm, can be overcome and one's health restored. Moreover, many of our physical problems have a history that can be traced back to traumas that occurred long ago. They may even have a genetic history, traceable to traumas suffered by our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Thus, in order to recover from ill health, we have to become like detectives, seeking any clue that might lead us toward a solution. As we probe further in the search for the roots of our ill health, we may uncover subconscious issues that have long inhibited our recovery. Our encounter with these issues is what I call the dialogue with the demon--that part of our self that places obstacles in the path of our full functionality and the realization of our potential."
