Memorialized by legendary tales of grandeur and glory,
or placed upon the pedestal of the silver screen, we build our worldly and
spiritual role models up to be something more than human. We project all our hopes and dreams onto
these "Super Stars", and as long as they fulfill these
roles, we love them as we idolize actors instead of embracing
our own "Inner Star”. And if our heroes don’t perform to our
expectations, we cast (or crucify) them away.
The Israelis of 2 thousand years ago were a conquered people who dreamt
of freedom from Roman tyranny and the rebirth of a glorious powerful
nation. Out of a simple basic desire to end such suffering, it was
natural to expect a prophesied "savior" to be a warrior king who would
set them free from
an external tyrant and restore a new monarchy. Instead?
They got a spiritual master who preached peace and love and wanted to
establish a "Heavenly Kingdom". Those who didn't understand, grasp or
see the spiritual possibilities were very disappointed indeed ("CRUCIFY !").
And now? It's easy to pay lip service to a teacher who
has been dead for 2,000 years - he cannot personally correct us if
we misinterpret his message. But what would our expectations be of Jesus if he were alive today?
What if Jesus didn't
agree with our beliefs
heal our bodies
make us rich
give us the things we want
erase our problems...
how would we feel about him then?
Would we persecute and cast him aside
call him a fraud or deluded crazy man?
Many who dedicate their lives to an ideal greater than
themselves may fail to live up to worldly expectations yet from Gods
perspective, be the greatest success.

Change is Life
Of all things in life, constant change is the only certainty. Any sort
of attachment to a particular experience, event, person, place, thing,
feeling or thought will always bring suffering. With this in mind,
do not expect (nor judge) your healing sessions to look, feel or be one
way or another (and don't expect any one session to alleviate all your
problems). With this attitude you will never be disappointed in regards
to the healing work or life in general.
Is This It?
constantly trying to solidify its hold on the universe, to "figure it
all out", to have the definitive truth tucked away in its pocket, never
to be shaken or changed. Ego-mind wants to get to that place
where there is no more need for search, no more change, where it
can finally say "This is IT - I have Arrived". But life does not end at
any one point... rather, it is a series of moments occurring ever in
the Now... and the Now... and the Now. To be expecting or waiting for
any one definitive event or experience (that looks and feels just like
"so" and "so") is not living in the moment nor in the flow. Rather, it
is keeping us in the judge-mental attitude (and constrained state of
duality) that a certain experience is most desired and another is not.
And so, while we are waiting for a particular experience to
happen in some unknown future time, we are not being fully
aware of the reality of "Now", and experiences that do not fit our
"ideal" are rejected, suppressed and "stuffed" into our energy
field and subconscious, there to accumulate, stagnate, rot and die.
Author Jim Collins once asked Admiral James Stockdale, a former
prisoner of war in Vietnam
"Who didn't survive the camps?"
Stockdale replied, "Oh that's easy. It was the POWs who thought
they'd be home by Christmas."
Those who thought they'd be home by a
certain date tended to despair and perish when they still found
themselves in captivity after their expected freedom date came and
went. By contrast, Admiral Stockdale survived caustic captivity for
7 years by accepting the brutal reality of his situation and being
confident of eventual release. This belief kept him going. But he
did NOT believe freedom would come by any specific date or in any
special way. This is what saved him from despair and death. Collins,
in his excellent book "Good to Great" labeled these seemingly
opposed ways of thinking the "Stockdale Paradox."
The Stockdale Paradox is...
"Recognizing and owning the
brutal facts while holding the determination that you're going
to win, no matter how long it takes". It's not positive thinking. It's
not fantasizing about how great things will be when everything
goes your way. Its about being in the "Now".
matter how uncomfortable, without judgment expectation or attachment,
we must be able to flow in each moment (to "bend like the reed"),
no matter if all the rugs of our presumed reality are pulled from under
us, and all the rules and truths of yesterday change in the blink of an
eye. This is actually what it means to "Be Born Again" - we start everything
fresh and new, not just in each and every day, but from moment to
moment. This is life “as it is”, this is the NOW.
Most of us are not satisfied with the “Now” - it makes us feel
uncomfortable and impatient. To compensate for the pain and disappointment
with “what is”, our ego-mind regresses us to some romantic past (the
"good old days"), or projects us into some idyllic future fantasy.
The ego-mind is attached to the “idea”
of a destination or goal only in so far as it can distract us from
taking the steps to get into our feelings and into our hearts. Most of us would not even begin the
journey if we knew it would take so long to complete (or never
Fully living and flowing in the NOW
Letting go of experiences of "before" or expectations of
each moment is never dull, always new and full of adventure.
This NOW is when Spirit speaks to us with the greatest
Profundity of Emptiness
Much healing work is not about the putting in
but the taking out of that which is stuck in our personal
space. Such a clearing may not be readily apparent to or felt
by our human consciousness, and understandably, this initial
"lack of feeling" may cause some to reconsider doing more of this
work. However, it is important to understand that
“Meaning in life is
defined by the emptiness that surrounds it”.
Creating and appreciating “empty space” (called “Shibui” by the
Japanese) is not something we are accustomed to in this culture.
The beauty of empty space is that it makes what is truly
meaningful come into view. For example, the black typed words on a
page are not visible without the contrast of white empty space
behind it. Within the context of spirituality, our awareness
- when contrasted by a space free of mental and emotional stuff,
brings into focus that which remains - the Essence of Spirit.
is revealed in the empty space
Its very nature is not more but less
Ego-mind does not see empty space this way. It
interprets loss of “stuff” as a bad thing because ego-mind
WILL ALWAYS WANT MORE
more drama more things more thoughts more distractions
when the healing work is opening up a new space in our being, ego-mind
does all it can to resist, block or fill it. And from all that we have
internalized into our space, the false identities, ego
attachments, belief systems and negative energies... we are rarely able to see the bigger picture of our lives.
The Subtlety of
Spirit comes as "a still
it is not outward, flashy, brash, inflated or
but internal, soft, subtle, gentle, respectful,
in this overstimulating culture
The Jig Saw
Puzzle that We Are
our senses are not used to listening to such silence
to recognize and distinguish inner voice from outer.
On the human level of awareness, we do not have the overall
perspective on our lives. Only Spirit knows the ultimate goal, the
whole story, where everything goes.
If you look closely at the individual pieces that make up a jig saw
puzzle, each piece presents a mixture of solid or blurry
colors, some shapes clearly definable and ordinary,
others oddly and uniquely cut. Yet to make up the whole
finished picture, we need all these small pieces placed in their
correct positions. In some ways, our own life is like a puzzle.
There are times when we know exactly what to do, where to go and why
we are doing whatever we are doing. There are other times when we
feel confused with life's twists and turns... and it all seems
nearly impossible to make out the details or figure out
where all the separate individual pieces fit into the whole.
When experiencing a healing, you might not have
the foggiest notion of what (if anything) is going on, and you may
wonder if it is of any benefit. But without the
overall perspective of the "bigger picture", how would you really
know, how could you really tell ?
Most of us experience ourselves (and the outer world) from the
limited point of view of a consciousness so full of "stuff"
(actively or passively distorting our perceptions) that it's a wonder
we can maneuver in life at all. Perceiving from our sense
organs, the interpretation or "narration" from that view occurs
within our mind as countless images and words... collectively making up
the story of our lives. Though we are intimately “living” out this
story from moment to moment, Spirit (our Higher Self) “knows” the plot
line from beginning to end, and Spirit (in its infinite wisdom) won’t
tell us all the details. If were were to know (besides taking the
suspense and mystery out of living) we would not learn what it is to
live in faith and trust. Yes, we could try to force the pieces of our
lives to fit into some shape, and we could try to force our life story
to go a way we think it should, but there are more powerful forces
(that twist and turn the universe) overruling our small human plans
making our lives never go exactly the way we desire. Besides, if we try
to force the pieces of a puzzle into a shape of our own choosing, we
end with loose pieces that don’t fit anywhere, and an image that will
not make sense. This is how our lives are when we run it from the
limited perspective of ego-mind.
If we want our lives to be as creative, loving, happy or__ as possible, we
need to let go of our small ego-mind stories and let go of
the illusions of who we think we are. The Healer
(working in conjunction with your Higher Self) is here to
assist in this "letting go" process. With a sufficient amount of
work, enough "stuff" will be removed from your space
allowing the "Divine Artist" (your own Higher Self) to
easily (without impediment or distraction) direct the most Divine
Story and paint the most Divine Image upon the canvas of your
life. Spirit can look at where every minute aspect of
your life fits in with the universal "Divine Design" (which, by
the way, doesn’t end at the death of our bodies). It is from this Divine Knowing that Spirit approaches
each healing session.
Spirit looks at your entire being
as it was.. is.. and shall be
from past.. present.. to future
as it exists in its highest sublime form
to how it is manifesting here on earth
and all dimensions in between.
This Healing work:
- Moves the individual puzzle “pieces” of
your life around till they start to fit neatly into place and
coalesce into the original picture that you were meant to be.
- Rearranges the narration of your story
so that it starts to make sense and harmonize with all other
beings within the greater universe.
- Takes your ego-mind off the outer
world by creating empty space around and within so that your
attention starts focusing on what’s true and meaningful in life.
Until you do enough of this healing work, the immediate
benefits may not be readily apparent. If during your session there
is felt even the subtlest shifts, let that be sufficient, for each
healing you receive builds upon the previous. It's like the stones
laid in the foundation of a massive structure... the larger a
structure the more work must be done before the finished product is
realized. Our soul is massive and very complex, much more than any
building on earth. So too, many sessions must be completed,
usually over the course of weeks and months (or in some cases years and
lifetimes) before the majority of benefits are seen.
If you do enough of this healing work, you will at some point see and understand all the steps of your
life's journey from a clearer perspective (you might even catch
glimpses of the "Universal Picture"). Until then, ones perspective of
the healing process will be similar to the old adage of "not being
able to see the forest from the trees". In the meantime, trust that
Spirit knows the path our soul must take to get through this confusing chaotic
mess that is life.
Any great journeys take time to
unfold, involves hardship, demands patience, persistence and
yes, sacrifice. There will be steep hills to climb,
cold winds, lonely dark nights, views that may be rather
stark. Don’t expect to make sense of or "figure" anything out
(that's ego-mind trying to take control). Trust that
as long as you continue the healing process, Spirit will
get you to a better place sooner and easier than if done alone.
Till then, the best thing any of us can do is try to enjoy the splendour that is "Now".
