The most divine art: Healing
“The most Divine art is healing. It must occupy itself with the soul as well as the body.”
To heal, really heal, one must become whole, which is what healing means, to become whole.
To help one become whole, one must heal an individual uniting all aspects of his being, meaning his emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects.
To do less, by healing only a part, be it a psychological part, or a physical part, or a spiritual part, is still doomed to failure, as the underlying cause of one’s illness, his separation from the whole, has not been altered.
Though his physical or psychological condition may improve through drugs or therapy, his underlying problem, i.e. his imbalance or lack of unity has not improved, in that he will still see his reality as defined by the physical, emotional, mental or psychological aspect of his being.
One major reason why cancer therapy fails is because the drugs only affect the individual part, and never confront the root cause, or the underlying cause of disease.
His perception of reality has not changed, thus his reality, in absolute terms, has not changed either. At an unconscious or subconscious level, he still perceives himself as separate from the whole, thus he has not been healed. Wholeness has not been achieved, therefore one can expect problems to resume.
But re-unite him with the whole, and his universal self, we can start to see the healing process in action. The individual no longer identifies himself by his own individuality or by the separate parts of his being. In other words, he is no longer separate from the whole.
Rather he is one with the whole, and he is healed. And that reality of oneness and wholeness will manifest on a physical level, and the disease or the feeling of disharmony will vanish.
But for all this to happen, for real healing to happen, both healer and healed must suspend reason and open the gates to one’s imagination.
