Changing is not just changing the things outside of us. First of all we need the right view that transcends all notions including of being and non-being, creator and creature, mind and spirit. That kind of insight is crucial for transformation and healing.
Thich Nhat Hanh (Brainy Quote)
Right now, you may be shaking your head thinking to yourself; “WTF? : (What the Front door???) ”
I can understand that. I have been researching the literature for years on the topic of healing and what I was looking for, in the beginning, was scientific data that made sense to me. This stuff that I am going off about now…didn’t! For the longest time I rolled my eyes at it; I shook my head and I closed the cover on it. But it kept coming back to me in one form or another so I started to study it. First in my own religious context…the bible. Then I ventured out to other religious understanding beyond my small minded one. The same principles kept coming up. We are much more than body and mind. We are spirit. It is that simple. There is much more than the physical world we limit ourselves in. There is a boundless and limitless universe that we are completely connected to through a Divine and powerful energy.
We are all capable of healing ourselves becasue of this energy. This isn’t magic or witchcraft or new age nonsense…this is the truth. Healing…true healing doesn’t occur on the outside …it begins with us taking on the “right view” and seeing things clearly. It begins with believing and then knowing who we are and what we are capable of. Healing is not about curing suffering of the body or mind… it is about curing suffering in the entire world. Healing is not about miraculously fixing what is broken…it is about miraculously waking up from a dream that things are broken and realizing that they aren’t. That’s all.
I am no expert here becasue I am still in the process of waking up. It isn’t easy to become fully awake when the dreams I have dreamt my whole life have seemed so real to me. Yet …something is waking me up and will keep shaking my shoulder and calling my name until the sleep is gone from my eyes and I can see clearly. I will then see a world full of light, love and joy…free of all the suffering of nightmares. I will leave any of those dreams of pain and illness on the pillow where I laid my head and I will be well. Well that is what I plan on.
Wellness is our view of the world and healing is the replacement of the perception, the “view” of suffering for the knowledge of love and joy which is our birth right. This knowing occurs below the surface of our life events and our body and mind.
All is well in my world.
