Part 4 of 9
It was a warm summer day when I arrived at the Sacred Cave. The cave was about 300 by 100 feet in size. The floor and walls were well worn. Day light came in from holes in the walls and ceiling of the cave creating a soft glow of light. The walls had shelves carved into them, all filled with containers of herbs. In the center of the cave was a raised stone platform, about the size of a massage table with its legs lowered. As my teacher stood four feet ten inches tall it fit him perfectly.
On that day my teacher was sitting in a lotus position on top of the platform waiting for me to arrive. “Philosophy of healing, Philosophy of Tai Yi, the Art of Healing,” he said as I walked up to him. “This will explain why some heal and some do not heal.”
“Philosophy?” I asked.
“Yes,” he replied, “an examination, a set of basic concepts, a particular sphere of knowledge.” He laughed and said, “Did you like that mental interruption? It is all called, the Art of Healing. Healing does not just occur, just as disease does not just occur. One can have patience over many years to create a disease. The Art of Healing requires one to use that same patience to heal. You want to learn the Art of Healing, the Art of Tai Yi?” he asked. “Then you must develop passion, for without passion you cannot learn the Art of Healing, the Art of Tai Yi. What is the primary adversary of passion?” he asked.
I stood there thinking what the answer might be. He saw me thinking and said, “Go back in your memory to the second child you worked on. Tell me all about it.”
I thought back and remembered it was one of those experiences you never forget. I had received a phone call from a man describing himself as a doctor. “My son has a tumor and is scheduled for surgery in two days. Can you help me?” he asked.
“I do not know. I can try.”
“Well, I heard what happened to that boy in the hospital in Seattle. Will you do that on my son?”
“I am not even sure what I did, but I will work on your son and see what happens.”
The next day the doctor arrived with his eight year old son. His son had red hair and a freckled face showing much fear. As he walked into our home the father stated, “I have a request from you. I do not want you to tell anyone I came to see you. I do not want my name ever given, as I am a doctor and it just would not go over well if my colleagues knew I was seeing a faith healer.”
“A faith healer?” I asked in surprise.
“Well, whatever you are.”
“OK, I will never give your name out. No one will know who you are.”
He continued talking telling me about his son’s tumor. He said it was the size of a grapefruit in his intestines. I had his son lay down on our couch as his father pulled up a chair to watch. I started to put my hands on his stomach location when I felt to put pressure with my finger on different points on his body. Then I felt intense heat come out of my hand as had occurred before. I placed my hand on the location of the tumor for about ten minutes. The heat left my hand; I looked at his father and said, “That is all I can do.”
His son was too tired to stand up. His father picked him up and carried him out to the car. The next day he called and said the tumor had shrunk to the size of a pea so they cancelled the surgery. “I just want to thank you, and remember do not tell anyone who I am.”
“I will not,” I replied.
I heard my teacher shout, “What did you learn?”
“Shame,” I said. “Shame is the answer. Shame is the primary adversary of passion.”
My teacher went into a long discussion on the energy of shame and what it does to the mental, emotional and physical bodies. “Your civilizations are strong on promoting shame. How many times is the phrase used on children, ‘Shame on you’? How many live in shame of their disease and shame of different alternative healings? How many live in shame of how their body looks, or shame of their own spirituality? Look at how many come to your teacher (Jonah) and carry shame they are going to one without a physical body. Look at how many live in a closet to keep their shame hidden. One who lives in a closet will only accomplish one thing. They will end up with the most organized closet on the planet. Yes, that father carried great shame, what would others think, could his ego handle it? Yet the young boy did not carry shame. He just wanted to heal and so he did.”
“Yes, shame is the primary adversary to passion,” answered my teacher. “Begin to accept yourself as beautiful. Don’t accept what the Elite want you to believe as to what beauty is or is not. As you accept yourself as beautiful, you will begin to lessen the energy of shame thus allowing the energy of passion to be. Passion will increase your immune system, it will increase your mental ability, and it will increase your love for life.”
Ask yourself when the elite dictate consciously or subliminally what beauty is, will you accept it or make a statement, you are beautiful just the way you are?…Hossca
