The Transformation Continues
Continued from: A Guide and Explanation of my Work
My fourth "Major" evolved from my interest in Energy Healing and Emotional Alchemy. It has to do with investigating and understanding the origins of our emotions and the roles that they play in causing and anchoring dis-ease. I've become convinced that this is the most important and current field in Spiritual and Medical Investigation. The "Space Within" is the final frontier. So my continuing investigation has focused on what are commonly called "The Issues".
And addressing the "Issues" in the tradition of Spiritual Healing and Self-Realization, I reached the conclusion that the "issues" are not the issue. What I mean by this is - the root core of our dissatisfaction is dissatisfaction itself -it is not whatever we feel we are dissatisfied about, but that we are dissatisfied at all.
Isn't it obvious that many of us are simply afraid of our feelings. We are petrified, unable and unwilling to feel. Yet experience has proven that the feelings themselves, even though we are afraid of them, are nothing to be afraid of. What causes us the most difficulty in out lives is how we respond to them - our judgments around them, or, how we feel about how we feel.
Which leads me to conclude that the work and beginning of perfect healing is coming to be able to sit with and feel our dissatisfaction. If we cannot tolerate it then we cannot feel it, and if we cannot feel it then how can we heal it? The "Zen" of healing would say, "If you cannot sit with your feeings then you cannot be conscious of your enlightenment, grasshopper".
And in the tradition of Radical Therapy I say, "Anything but that is self-abuse."
Our Root Motivation: To Feel Alive and Whole-
We Want to Feel GOOD: Whole and Alive!
