In this episode I conclude my description of the healing practice by exploring the point when we get to the end of our words and can finally abide, sit still, and be in and with Divine presence. This portal will allow all comers to see just how everything is possible and beautiful. It gives us just enough of a glimpse that we can re-enter the work of each day with a completely new disposition and attitude.
“Is there something we can do that will bring all forms of healing into our world?”
Yes, but we probably won’t want to do it. Throughout human history, within all sectors of society, contemplative and meditative prayer practices have, and continue to me, portals through which healing has emerged within the lives of people. It has transformed ancient societies and still does to this day.
In the concluding episodes of our series on healing, I will take you as a visitor along with me as I explain the practice that I imperfectly employ within my life. I’ll share the challenges, pitfalls, and transformation from opening up to the Divine. Join me now as we see beyond religious ritual and learn how everyday people can tap into and join the flow of healing within our lives and world.
The next time you feel that you are coming down with a cold, I want you to pay attention. There is a very sobering moment that transpires once we recognize that our body/brain communication has been diminished. In this post and podcast I will use the flu as a portal through which we can view suffering. It’s really hard to sit still, to be quiet, and to slow down, but suffering has the power to help us. In this sense, it is benevolent. I’ll compare this to the spiritual practice of contemplation and leave you with a view of suffering that you may never have considered.
