    What struck me from today’s reading is the relationship between a physician and her patient is analogous to the relationship between God and man. With our free will and intellect we choose to bring ourselves to God, rather than to be brought, because we see a need for him in our lives. God also has an authority in the relationship we do not have but we still have an exchange with Him in the decisions we make.

    This piece really resonates with me because I want to go into the medical field someday. I knew medicine is extremely important because it has to do with the body of an individual, but I never though that it is concerned with the entire human being…whoa.

    To question who we are is a huge challenge. Even to this day, if you ask monks or priests who they are, they are probably very unsure what that answer is. All I can say (as a universal idea) is that humans are both spiritual and physical. We are more than just a body and more than just a mind. We are thoughts and we are neurons. We are a balance of earth and heaven, to be more poetic–haha. We’re special.

    I volunteered at providence hospital and I see the relationships the doctors have with their patients. I never thought about going into medical school but I see the connection God has with man. We have a societal connection.
