The True Role of Healers

We, as healers, at best are still walking in the darkness, dealing with forces that can't be seen, struggling with illnesses whose true roots we do not comprehend. We may grasp some of the mechanistic forces that contribute to illness but none of us can "see" the whole picture. And if you can't see the whole picture, you are playing God to ask someone, "Why are you choosing to create your illness?"

In the words of the great football coach of the Green Bay Packers, Vince Lombardi, "It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, it only matters how many times you pick yourself up." Let us serve others by helping them pick themselves up over and over again without sabotaging their progress by our judgments.

Let us truly heal ourselves by bringing our awareness softly and gently to our illness or pain, so we may hold our pain with love - so we may truly love ourselves and let go of all notions of failure, punishment or judgment.
