“The tree doesn’t die, nor do I when you cut off a branch or a finger, we both heal so we don’t lose all the sap or blood. That to me is total shock. Also that water defies the laws of physics by becoming less dense when frozen. Life really is a miracle and all the things that are been built into us through it.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“There’s very little that shocks me because I consider life a miracle so I guess what shocks me is that life exists. How the hell did we get here? What shocks me is that bacteria alter their genes and resist antibiotics and viruses resist vaccines.”

“When I experience something, I believe it. I almost choked to death when I was a four year old and had a near death experience. I was very upset that I didn’t die because it was a lot more interesting out of your body than in it.”

“I grew up caring about people and I would say again, that’s what made me who I am. I became a doctor for what I like to call “healthy reasons.” Not because I’m fascinated by the human body or want to understand death, but I like people and I want to help them. That also became my problem, because I couldn’t help everyone, I couldn’t fix everyone.”

“To me, God is an intelligent, loving, conscious energy and why do I say that? Well you need energy to create. You have to have a source. It’s undifferentiated energy which has intelligence or it couldn’t create.”

“If nothing has helped you decide, go ask a child. Children know what they need, and more surprisingly, the know what we need. Adults think. Kids respond with their feelings. They don’t think about what you will think of their answer, so they just speak the truth-if you can get to them before junior high school age. At that time, they grow up, stop feeling loved, become depressed and start thinking-and what they are thinking about worries me.”

“Animal intuitives can diagnose an animal’s physical health problems by listening to the animals.”

“What a shame to be so afraid of failure that you stop living. My wife has a great one-liner about failure: “Never consider yourself a failure-you can always serve as a bad example.” She is right. Failure can be a better teacher than success.”

“To me, animal communication seemed an insane idea, years ago; but my experience altered my life and my beliefs.”

“Getting well is not the only goal. Even more important is learning to live without fear, to be at peace with life and ultimately death.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“So to me, what the drugs and addiction are saying is that I deserve to feel good, I’m allowed to take this because look how I was treated as a child. Our authority figures, particularly our parents are hypnotic. Their words are hypnotic literally to small children because of brain wave patterns.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“I once heard a man say he knew there was a God, he just didn’t think he needed Him. It is nice to take care of yourself and be independent, but it is also nice to know that you have a resource to rely on in times of need. If you are used to fending entirely for yourself, then when a catastrophe occurs you will expend a lot of energy looking for help at a time when you need your energy looking for help at a time when you need your energy for creative work.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“You can see people draw the past, present and future as well as dream about it. You go to bed at night and have a dream that says there’s a lump in your right breast and the doctor who is foreign, with an accent tells you it’s cancer.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“By relaxation, I don’t mean falling asleep in front of the TV set or unwinding with friends. The kind I’m talking about is a quieting of mental activity and withdrawal of body and mind from external stimulation.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“I wish medical schools helped us to analyze our healthy and unhealthy reasons for becoming doctors.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“A surgeon is surrounded by people who are sick, discouraged, afraid, embittered, dying – but also courageous, loving, wise, compassionate and alive.”

Bernie Siegel

“Disease is surely one of the ways in which we are tried by life and offered the chance to be heroic. Though few of us will win Olympic gold medals or slay dragons, disease can be the spark or gift that allows many of us to live out our personal myths and become heroes.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“What I learned was to live in my heart and to do what will make my happy, and that was not selfishness. It didn’t matter what job I took, my mother’s answer was, “Do what will make you happy.” It brought attention to my own feelings, and the realization that I never knew what the future would bring so to keep an optimistic view of it, because who knows what today’s events will bring.”

 

Bernie Siegel

“Money, financial matters were to help people, to help them survive, not to have a bigger house or a bigger car and that sort of thing, because I hear that from so many kids, they often don’t know why their father won’t spend more time with them.”
