Healing Your Life
You have everything you need: a miraculous body, a phenomenal
brain, and a vast and powerful subconscious mind. Now it's just
a matter of focusing them in the right direction.~Marc Allen
Although we are all born gifted with tremendous potential to
conquer life, few of us rise to the occasion.
By the time we reach adulthood, most of our potential has been
buried by years of corrupted beliefs.
Like clouds blocking the sun, the brilliance of our own light is
hidden by a mist of doubt.
We use this doubt to create lack, limitation, negativity, and
Unless something drastic happens to force us to tear this veil
of illusions from around us, we will continue to our last day on
earth to believe the huge lie that somehow we lacked greatness.
The veil was created by our agreement with the scripts of
consensual reality. We agreed with our parents, our teachers,
our elders and our institutions because we didn't know that
another dimension of possibility existed within us.
For us to even recognize that a veil of untruth has bound us our
whole lives, we need to have a paradigm crash. We need a
disruption of our habitual existence. We need to be jolted into
A paradigm crash can be any shocking event: a car accident, a
death, an injury, a loss of a lover, a loss of a job, or even
simply a loss of face. This accident startles us into feeling
intensely. When this happens, we awaken momentarily to ask about
the meaning of our lives and we inquire about the possibility of
an alternative way of experiencing reality.
Yet even this accident may not be enough. It all depends on our
response to it. We can let the accident bury us, causing us to
be stuck in time and to live in a low mood. Or we can seek
healing and forgiveness.
In the response to overcome our discontent by seeking relief
through a therapeutic practice, whether it be reading a book or
taking a course to expand our awareness, whether it be adopting
a spiritual practice or seeking the help of a counselor skilled
in grief issues, we begin to peel away the layers of our
In the Bhagavad Gita, the world is referred to as Maya, an
illusionary framework for soul to navigate through to awaken to
its own greatness. The popularity of the first Matrix movie
arose because of an unconscious recognition that things are not
real but only appear to be.
The reality of everything is that we are truly great, the
expression of a deathless soul, the offspring of a great cosmic
power of pure consciousness.
Only when we seize our discontent, will we begin the journey to
discover our own greatness and heal the lie of our limitations.
We are amnesic gods in disarray.
