I go deep within my inner stillness, and feel Divine Mind’s presence within me. I hold out my empty hands, symbolic of leaving preconceptions behind; symbolic of seeking True answers, and I ask, “What is the essence of healing?” These words resonate within me, as though in a vast cavern. The word essence reverberates with these thoughts, “For what do I care most deeply?” “What is my own essence? What is my Truth?” “Where is my deepest hurt, where is my pain, where is my sorrow (that I may be healed)?”
These first few days are question-days (obviously!). I am not concerned right now about having the answers. What does concern me is:
- Going as deeply as I can into my commitment to finding answers about healing. These questions reflect seeking; they express a desire to know, to understand, to really go after a new learning about healing.
- Approaching without pre-judgments, without preconceptions, without an expectation of what I might discover. I must not now know what healing is, otherwise I would be healed. Since I am not healed, I do not know. If I do not know now, then I have incorrect ideas about what healing is. To understand and to know healing, I must begin anew, with a fresh outlook, understanding that I am currently ignorant of what healing must be.
- Asking the right questions. If it is true that all answers are given and that ye find what ye seek…then I want to do my darndest to ask the right questions and to seek True healing. In other words, if I am going to seek and spend this time, I want to seek only what is Worthy, what is Divine Love, what is the highest possible attainment of understanding and expression of healing that I can. This Journey is not about “heal my body” or “take my pain away” or “why is my life crappy” this Journey is about the essence that heals all of these as matter of fact, as matter of course, as Truth, in the blink of an eye. Thus, these initial questions turn the mind not toward asking for anything, but instead seek clarity, understanding, and guidance toward the right questions to get the answers Truly sought.
