Healing and Spirituality II

Even though we may find ourselves on a path that connects us to some teacher or healer, we are so forgetful that it is ourselves that heal, not that outsider that heals us. Our society surely reinforces that powerlessness. Some dogmas also are based on that lack of power: do good and be good and you’ll go to heaven, call on a saint or an angel to make things all good.  Ask God for help…

Asking for help is a calling outside of ourselves. Indigenous people seem to know better. They don’t ask outside themselves. They embody a spirit. They become one with spirit. There is no separation–no duality. They are One and the same with spirit and life. Living not far from the Lascaux caves, it is interesting to observe Cro-magnon man’s paintings. One can feel the oneness this man/animal. We might call them primitive but really, who are the primitive ones?

How long do we have to wait for help to arrive? At what cost? We have become so afraid of going within our own darknesses, our own shadows. We are afraid because we might have to change. Change is that great unknown. The unknown could be death–our deepest fear.

It really takes courage to go within our soul to find out what is there, hidden behind the veil. The dark night of the soul, we call it, the great power of the Goddess part within us.

Unfortunately, it often takes a disaster of some kind to decide to go to that dark place, without any choice–when we have lost our health, our processions or our mind. This is when we start to see little things as blessings.

No one but our Selves can find peace within. Peace is when healing occurs … or our last breath. Peace is when the soul is at One, atoned, attuned within its Self.

There is no saviour but ourselves. The saviour/spirit will not come if we don’t go within ourselves. We are the miracle and we just have forgotten, at One with everything that exists.
