Dear One


Dear One,


I am writing to remind you of things you already know. Healing is different from curing. Curing is a term of subtraction. Healing is an expression of addition.


Curing involves the complete disappearance of symptoms. It is an outside-in action, an inherently physical process that impacts the systems of the body. Typically, something originates externally to have an internal effect, such as taking medication or having surgery. In this manner symptoms are removed.


Healing is about returning to homeostasis or balance. It is an internal process through which harmony is created. It involves a new perspective, a fresh insight, and a changed attitude. It is an inside-out phenomenon that addresses mental, emotional, and spiritual conditions.


Healing does not always coincide with curing bodily ailments. Likewise, you can be cured from a physical problem and still suffer.


Neither of these mechanisms are under your control. However, you can position yourself to receive healing and a cure by doing what is in your power to do, such as engaging in practices that quiet your mind and open your heart, being proactive with your physical health, and cultivating faith—faith in a power greater than yourself, whether it be Love, a medical practitioner, a therapist, or a process. Focusing your attention continually on your symptoms of illness creates suffering. Faith moves mountains.


Ironically, you may find that when you are no longer attached to and consumed by the desire for a cure, healing spontaneously takes place; and when healing occurs, physical health, wealth, and a long or short life often lose their importance.


Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love and so to live into the fullness of who you are.


As always, do what best awakens you to Love,

Your Inner Wisdom
