Healing Is A Word Many Use Yet Few Understand - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

Healing is a word many use yet few understand.  Healing is so simple an act that it eludes the human mind.  Why does it do so?

Because of the habits of fear that have been encouraged by the human communities to protect those of limited knowledge and even more limited experience from experiencing true acts of healing.

Healing is simply a phenomenon that occurs when one can set aside from one's limiting thoughts and outerward imposed limited thinking and for the moment be free from all the fears others have encouraged within you as a means of control and that you have allowed to remain, further hindering any possibility of self-healing.

For,  it is truly an act of the Self upon the self once one has for just even a brief moment dropped all their preconceived notions and misunderstanding that have been taught and maintained in a deliberate effort to maintain the power of the self-proclaimed voices of authority that deceive to gain a profit from human suffering.

How many times have you heard the term, scientifically proved.  What does this mean in reality?

That a group of health practitioners or a drug manufacturer have chosen a scientist to publish the results that shed a positive light upon their practices or medicines while at the same time denying any claims that dispute the results of those hired for the results that they wish people to believe in.  These results are published and aggressively marketed through a campaign of fear and trickery.

Rememdies or practices that are simple, inexpensive, and very effective are demonized and woe to those who dare to fight for the health and well being of their patients.  A modern day witch hunt may be a more accurate description of these practices of those who gain great profit with often ineffectual results.

This is the beauty of acts of faith.  These interventions cancel out the imprinted fears and allow the body to be in a state of calm, which is nothing more than the freedom from fear.  Once the body's mind and emotions are calm, then the health giving Light surrounds and fills the person and the body's natural healing ability is at it's optimum.

Soon, what are called medical miracles occur since those self-proclaimed High Priests of Medicine cannot maintain their lies and rather than get caught and have to admit that our systems of healing that they have not yet embraced or understand are effective, proclaim this rapid healing as an unexplained medical mystery.

Those who dare to question their authority are discredited and a systematic campaign begins to destroy their careers and stop them from practicing less others begin to question the High Priests incompetence and lack of understanding.

This is so common not only within the Health Profession, but in all human institutions with great profits and funding that will be and are protected at all costs without any concern for the health and well being of others.

So, can you see how something so simple as the act of healing through prayer or faith can be stopped by the voices of fear,  whether that fear be ego fear from within one's own being or the outward voices of the ego fears of others who deceive and lie to maintain their own fears of loosing control over others.

Now, The Earth Fights For It's Own Survival.....A Discourse from M.N. Hopkins

Now, the Earth fights for it's own survival and if Man continues to threaten Earth's survival, then the Earth will defend itself more vigilantly and Mankind will suffer far greater hardships than those of today.  We only ask that you look upon each other and the Earth with a loving gaze.

For love is the greatest of all survival mechanisms built into the human system. For in love, one acts in a kind and responsible manner that insures the survival of all life forms in your Earth realm as well as the Mother of All Life, which you in your cultural view refer to as, the Earth.

The Path of Non-Violence - A Guest Post by Pam Bickell

The Path of Non-Violence

by Pam Bickell

Notes Along There Path Blog,       18 January 2016

The great spiritual teacher, Paramahansa Yogananda says–I’m rephrasing here–that we humans create our environments with our thoughts, literally. An aggravated mood might bring mosquitoes to us. Fear or anger overtaking a city can stir up tornadoes, or draw a hurricane. (Prayer and meditation have the opposite, calming, effect.) Large-scale acts of violence such as the events of 9/11 can lead to war. The acts themselves do not cause war—our reactions to the events, our thoughts and fervent emotions, lead to war. And, who among most of us doesn’t love payback? I find it difficult to resist the revenge-stories where a father goes after the perpetrators who killed his wife or child.
My children are familiar with the teachings of the Bible because they were raised in Catholic school. Jesus’ words, ‘If a man strikes you, turn the other cheek to him,’ were in a reading at mass one day, and that night my eldest (as a fourth-grader) asked, “Mom, do we really have to just take it if someone punches us?” At the time I said, “You have to protect yourself. You can’t stand there and let someone beat you.” I thought ‘turn the other cheek’ had no practical application in our world.
I didn’t understand then that Jesus’ words are about forgiveness, not cheek punches. I still believe we have to protect ourselves if someone attacks us, although I did once ask myself, “What would Jesus have done if punched?” I was reminded that He offered no resistance when arrested, beaten and forced to carry heavy wood on His back to His own death. “Ohhhh,” I thought. “I see.” To this day, I can’t comprehend the totality and impact of His sacrifice.
There have been others who gave their lives to the path of non-violence, such as Martin Luther King, whose great life we remember today, but it is certainly not natural to us. Think of the Protestants and the Catholics, Muslims and Christians, or the people of Israel and Palestine. You killed my daughter, my wife, my mother, my son. You will pay. Just when we believe a compromise/solution has been reached, a crazed retaliator starts everything up again, and the families of the latest victims commit to retribution until their dying breaths. 
So, will our world ever be a peaceful world? Something would have to shift in our consciousness. We’d have to commit to non-violent solutions and to action. We’d have to expand our minds to realize every soul on Earth has the same hopes and dreams we do: to live in a loving family in a safe home, and to find fulfilling work within a cooperative, positive society. We’d have to plan to secure a future for our grandchildren and their grandchildren, and show great care now for Mother Earth in the choices we make. If our consciousness expanded, we’d choose the path of non-violence. We’d be the one who says, “I’m listening. Please tell me your side of the story. Let’s work this out together. I forgive you.”
