How ‘whole’ are you? It is an interesting question most people have not, nor will ever, contemplate. I have and I do, all the time. I don’t think this is just a spiritual question, I actually think its a health question, and a very important existential question. It matters. A LOT. Here is a post I just wrote on my ‘Holistic Life Facebook Page.’
“I have spent 15 years attending to my wellbeing and to the relationship between body, mind and spirit.
In that time I have experienced a 180 degree turn around in how I live, what I focus on and how I relate to life itself.
It has been, and still is, a profound transformation.
Both simple and complex. And my awareness of the divine running through everything only increases day by day.
At first I thought it was just the body that was faltering with all its angry symptoms.
That took me directly into my emotions, which were tangled up, fearful, old and also angry.
That took me to all my thoughts and beliefs, the fundamentals of my everyday life, some of them very toxic and negative.
And finally I arrived at my spiritual essence, the nature of truth and love and reality itself.
Each step of the way my eyes opened as did my heart, until everything melted into the same thing.
You don’t choose wholeness.
You arrive at wholeness. It is a place not a thought or belief. It is a tangible frequency of frequencies.
It is where and when everything comes together, no longer separate.
It is when we, as human beings, become greater than the sum of our parts.
Wholeness is our natural state, and seems to be rare in this ‘techno-modern-superficial-separation-believing’ society.
I am forever grateful that illness came into my life to show me the way home. And I am grateful to my past self to have the wisdom to hear the call to go on the journey of healing, even if it was scary, lonely, mysterious and long.
Sometimes the longest journeys are the best.”
My advice is to take the journey. However the invitation comes, its always there. Be brave, be vulnerable, be open, step into the unknown. The benefits are incalculable. You don’t have to completely turn away from medical systems, you simply have to become your own authority, your own guru, your own advocate. Its about inner discernment as much as anything.
When you find out who you really are, through being very honest with yourself, it changes everything.
