We live in a Healing World, yet we as a society choose to abuse mother earth and all its inhabitants.
The history of mankind has been riddled with false beliefs and war over religion, greed, arrogance, and superiority.
We are the most dangerous animal on the planet and the most intelligent. Why is it so hard to see each other as equals and treat everyone we encounter with respect?
Depending on where you live the abuse you see will be different in its application but it is still abuse.
The internet and all its technological advantages, is a wonderful thing. Yet with all its advantages it is pulling the fabric of society apart. We no longer spend time together as friends and our human contact is becoming a thing of the past. Unless you are close to someone and the human interaction is real, we can not have the empathy and love for one another that it takes to grow emotionally.
This healing world is at a breaking point and it is up to us to set the balance straight again.
I know this is going to sound like a rant, although I choose or try not to inject personal beliefs into this website. Being a teacher is challenging, to watch our world and society deteriorate without trying to bring attention to the problems. If you are on this site you probably are looking for a healthier way of life. If more people spoke up and lovingly tried to change the planet, the more success we would have.
Our world does not need our help to survive, it just needs our respect. It really is a healing world and our society needs to learn that we are all one tribe and the better we get along the happier our existence will be.
The Healing Power of the universe and the world does not need our help to fix it or make it better. It needs for us to step away from all the pollution we add and live a cleaner and healthier life. The world will heal itself if we stay out of her way.
Healing World, leave it to Mother Earth.
Ernest Holmes one of my mentors tell us this about life:
THE MIRROR OF THE SUBJECTIVE
It has truly been said that Mind is a mirror. If we could realize how completely this law works, no doubt we would greatly alter our manner of thinking. It is impossible to create even the slightest thought without causing some reflex action in Mind; and the deeper the emotion the deeper will be the penetration of thought and the more complete will be the reaction.
Thought is the most subtle of all the forces which we know anything about, and but few understand what a tremendous power it has, either for good or for ill. To learn how to control one's thought means knowing how to control one's body and destiny.
Subjective mind can reason only deductively; consequently, it is compelled, by reason of its nature, to accept whatever thought gains entrance to it. So the mirror of Mind is, in reality, the working of the law of cause and effect through the mentality. The subjective mind, being the seat of memory, must contain all the thoughts which have ever gone into it, whether these thoughts have been conscious or not. But when a person is told that he has thoughts which he never consciously created it is a little hard to understand. He must realize, however, that constant contact with life opens the door to many impressions which were never consciously created. This fact, together with the realization that whatever falls into the subjective mind must be acted upon, answers the question.
Of course, we do not imagine that certain things are going to happen to us; but we do think certain kinds of thoughts which, brought to their logical conclusions, would produce definite effects. Remember that the subjective mind reasons deductively only; and all this becomes quite evident.
The subjective side of thought, being the creative agency within, must at once set to work to produce anything which is given it, no matter what the emotion may be. How wonderful! But this shows how very careful one should be in choosing the kind and type of emotion to be made into form; for something must happen to all the thoughts which submerge.
The subjective mind never argues nor contradicts what is put into it; the thought is at once accepted and acted upon. If one says that he is sick, it at once begins to create a sick condition; for, like a mirror, it reflects; and being creative, what it reflects it tends to create and to cast forth as a condition.
Like any other natural force, subjective mind was not created by man and he cannot change its mode of operation; but, while he may not change a natural force, he may change his manner of approach to it. Man cannot change his own inherent nature; but he can, and should, learn to make the best use of all his forces. Subjective mind will never change its own nature, but will always reflect to the thinker what he thinks into it. Man did not make this law nor can he change it; but, like any other law, once understood, it becomes an obedient servant.
The use of this law is entirely mental and is within the grasp of everyone; it is so simple that all can understand; it is the law of mind in action, and this law is set in motion by correct thinking and knowing.
But how few know why they think or what they think! How few control even the slightest emotion or allow the emotions to express in a constructive manner! No doubt the time will come when a complete control of the subjective will be gained and man will then be much less limited.
But the race is made up of individuals, and the place to begin is right at home. We, who have affirmed these great laws of mind to be realities in the human experience, must so prove them in our expressions of life that the rest, looking on, may read the sign and follow the signal. It is possible to do this, and the reward is great.
At first, the road may be hard and beset with many difficulties; there may be failures and discouragements, but the end is certain. We fall, only to rise again into a greater realization of life and action; and, like the pilgrim of old, to renew the journey. We shall need a backbone instead of a wishbone here as in all other places. It is not in wishing but in knowing and in doing that we shall find the reward of true merit. It behooves each one to make the effort to consciously control the processes of his thought.
This does not mean sitting around in some dark corner with the hand at the brow, impersonating Socrates or Plato; it means out in the world, in the midst of affairs, at home and abroad, wherever our work takes us. We need not leave the world; for we may engage in all of its activities without being controlled by them; we may be in the world of affairs as masters and not as slaves.
Surely this hope, held before the waiting thought, will so stimulate our endeavors that we shall go forth into life and the great game of living with a new song upon our lips and a new joy within, springing forth into the dawn of a new day.
