- “I wish to be Healed…” Photo: David G Arenson ND
“I wish to be healed.”
When I became aware of the vast silence within myself, and the essence that was me beyond thoughts, the piece of the missing puzzle found itself, and I finally began to heal.
Something was activated far greater than myself. I discovered the whole world in a single grain of sand, the entire eternity of the cosmos within one cell of consciousness—in the now.
As healing permeated my being, I knew that I was one with God.
I became life itself.
I call this type of healing ultimate surrender, a mystical baptism into the very source of Creation.
Yet words by definition cannot adequately describe it.
The healing principle is within man himself. Man’s power to heal himself, or extend his healing power to others, is measured by his awareness of God within.
~ Walter Russell
Healing is a topic beyond human understanding.
Like suffering, it’s something innate to the human experience, yet it also persistently defies comprehension. If we could understand God, then we would have to be like God, and that is of course impossible (although many have tried).
We take for granted healing from a cold, and proclaim it as a miracle to heal from life-threatening illnesses. The process itself in both cases, is mystical.
Our self-healing capacity is magical.
When we heal, a process is activated of such profound wisdom and complexity, it reaches into the scope of a mesmerizing intervention.
There’s a certain inevitability about healing from a cold.
The moment we’re confronted by a more serious diagnosis, a primal terror that reveals our vulnerability and immortality is revealed.
Naked, our souls are exposed. Then, we are challenged to access our spiritual natures and the deepest aspect of healing within our souls to nurture grace, surrender. This allows us an acceptance and sense of peace whatever our situation.
Sometimes, we’re not able to heal. We must accept this too, and not lose faith as a result. We must accept the possibility that we cannot change everything, we cannot heal every condition as we would like. We are not immortal.
When healing does happen, it usually happens spontaneously. This goes to the very nature of our beings, miraculous creators.
We are already something special biologically and spiritually just for being here in this space of creation. The challenges we face make us grow as people—they define who we are, and who we choose to become. The hardest part is taking responsibility for your life.
Healing is not for the faint-hearted. Healing is a shape-shift—shapeshifting into something we wish to become (“the healed”).
The important thing is this; to be able at any moment, to sacrifice what we are for what we wish to become.
~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
