"Health is inner peace"
A Course in Miracles
On this place I would like
to say some words about illness and responsibility for your own life. At some level everyone of us is responsible for everything
in the whole world, and - eventually - in the Universe. There is no such thing as coincidence, good or bad luck from a bigger
point of view; all events and circumstances are actively or passively created by one or more persons, and we are all connected.
Many healing arts state that disease has its origins in the mind and disfunction of the body is its result. In A Course of
Miracles we read: "sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body" and "Sickness is a way of demonstrating that
you can be hurt". Disease is a form of body language, telling us that something in our lives is not right. Often the location
and the nature of the disease give information about what we experience as being wrong; in this area people like Louise Hay
have done wonderful work. But: I do object against people who think that they can explain and understand all human physical
expressions. - "This is so, because..." And then choose one of the following options:
- "You have done something
terrible in another life, it's your karma". (how do they know?)
- Or "Anything that happens,
happens for your wellbeing". (do you believe that if you have cancer or AIDS and suffer unbearable pains?)
- Or "You have created this
yourself; it's your own fault that you suffer!" (this is a great help after being raped)
- Or "If you have this complaint,
then this absolutely is the background of it. You should do this…" (and then they insist that you work on yourself,
see a psycho-analyst or so, but what if your disease has to do with carbon monoxide because of leaking tubes?)
- Or "You have to learn something;
this is a lesson you should appreciate." (what do you have to learn from torture, except that it's inhuman and hurts terribly?
Besides A Course in Miracles teaches that "there is no need to learn through pain.")
- Yes, somehow everything we experience is created.
But it is not always consciously created, there is still so much ignorance about what we do and why we do it. Besides everybody
around us creates at the same time, what means that the more ignorant we are about our own potential, the more influence our
surroundings possibly have on our lives. And then there is also the influence of the group-consciousness, what could possibly
create events like wars or nature disasters. So this whole energy-weaving is unbelievably interesting, but much more complex
than the above mentioned statements would like us to believe.
- The above mentioned statements are very judging,
prejudiced and eliterian. They don't know you, but they know it all they think; this is the attitude of a very big ego. "I
am better than you are, at least I am less stupid than you are", it says. So actually they tell you that there is something
wrong with you. But if we are all Gods and Goddesses, than how could there be something wrong with us? And what's wrong ,
what's right? I personally know a 4 years-old boy, highly crippled, unable to speak, walk and transfer the signals of his
nervous system, but he is very content and cheerful and his parents are really happy with him. I know this boy as a very beautiful
spirit. This is an unusual human expression, but what is wrong with that? He is also a spark of God - and able to give me
a feeling of joy, respect and humbleness towards life. Couldn't this be just be the gift of this boy to the world? To let
us know that although things seem imperfect they are perfectly perfect?
- If there is something wrong with us, then we are
unworthy and should feel guilty for not being good enough. Thank God A Course in Miracles states: "you are not guiltless in
time, but in eternity." Maybe for human beings we are not good enough, but for the Goddess we definitely are!
- We would do great work
if we would act from a point of love and encourage persons instead of criticizing them. Yes, do try to read the message of
their body, but please from a point of acceptance and openmindedness, instead from a point of criticizing and judging. The
first thing comes from a source of love and acceptance, oneness - our true source - while the second thing springs from a
viewpoint of being separate, having to defend yourself against…(?) - this is our small ego.
So the source of our uneasiness
can be multifold - and it is very much worth to try to understand it - but even more important is how we wish to proceed,
for this is really an opportunity of our creative force. You can put endless energy in trying to explain and work through
your personal past, but the present forms the base for your future. So please act for the sake of your future…and anybody
Do a therapy you believe in or feel attracted to, starting from the point of view that you deserve the best
out of your life. There is a lot you can do to heal yourself, like positive thinking, using affirmations and visualizations,
meditations and Bach Flower Remedies, healthy food, fresh
air and exercise.. A good friend who dares to be honest with you can be a great teacher. Ask for light and know that you are
