Almost all healing modalities, whether traditional or alternative/complimentary, are linear constructs. They exist in a world of separation, the land of the ego-mind, where there is a healer and a healee, a separate entity which is “doing” the healing. There is another reality, one which is non-linear, where there is recognition of the oneness of all things, which taps into the infinite power of creation itself. The question is, how does one access this other reality, even if one is not themselves, a fully self-realized being?
First we have to define what a self realized being is. Self realization is a state of consciousness where one is aware that at their core, they are consciousness itself and that there is no separation between all things. It is a fairly advanced state, embodied by about 4/10 of one percent of the world’s population, which is often characterized by unconditional love and a sense of bliss. This though, is merely the doorway to even higher states, that of the saints, the sages and the fully enlightened ones. For most people the advancement to this state of consciousness is erratic, characterized by periods of blissful mergence into nonlinear reality and a falling back into everyday reality. This is especially true in the west, where we have no tradition of recognizing or supporting, spiritual seekers.
Ultimately we want to tap into that which has the most power, in order to facilitate that which is the hardest thing for humans; change. We want to tap into consciousness itself, whether you call it “The Field”, God, Spirit, Divinity, etc. The tool that has supplied the most miracles over the history of humanity is surrender; surrender in the form of prayer and surrender in the form of letting go of the ego-mind’s agenda; the thought that one is actually doing something. I know it gets a little gray here, as we are taught in so many seminars that if we do such and such, we will get this result. That’s all well and good, but the fact remains that man is a very complex being, with an almost limitless array of resources to create chaos in his life. Finding the source of one person’s issues is the proverbial needle in the haystack and it is in the surrender, that the answer can arise.
In his seminal work on the subject, “Power vs. Force” and the subsequent, “Truth vs. Falsehood”, David Hawkins laid out a logarithmic scale, in which he calibrated levels of consciousness and their characteristics, which coincidentally indicated the relative power available. While the act of doing, is only as powerful as one’s own level of consciousness, the act of surrender to The Field/God/Divinity calibrates at the entry level of enlightenment, and potentially to a level realized by only a few handfuls of masters over the course of recorded history. If one takes into consideration the recent work of physicist, Efthimios Harokopos, that “there is more potential power in one cubic centimeter of empty space than in all the mass of the known universe”; one can glimpse the potential available to/through consciousness.
So does that mean that it is a waste of time to study the teachings of others and learn new things? Not at all, although it is helpful to be discriminating, as to what one is studying and the relative truth of the teachings. I have found that by studying the works which calibrate relatively high and then testing as to what is questionable, one is better able to understand and interpret the information which is available through the field. It is through the assimilation of integrous material and coming to an understanding of the correlations of various, and sometimes seemingly diverse teachings, that one is able to translate and apply that which is revealed through higher consciousness. It also gives me an idea as to what questions to ask. It serves no purpose to deliver a message in which one has projected some spiritual fantasy as an explanation of an intuitive glimpse. It is only through questioning the validity of what one is facilitating, whether it be energy, information or both, and its applicability to the situation, that one can truly be a vehicle of healing.
All religious teaching traditions contain 5-10% truth and the rest is basically glamorous filler. The truly enlightened teachers have left a legacy of valid teachings most of which overlap. That which is repeated though the annals of time are considered to be basic spiritual truths. Yet what is true at one level of consciousness may not be so at another. Many of us have a tendency to grab hold of the latest information as the most sacred truth only to have the next one supplant it. The answer to one persons suffering may have no relevance to another’s. The challenge for the student is the willingness to discard all that he held as true; even that which he learned yesterday. What is required is the willingness to step out of one’s ordinary reality, and surrender control and attachment to a specific outcome, to a higher consciousness, in service of healing.
