Excerpt: In Search of the Miraculous
Health is a state of consciousness. It has nothing to do with age, illness, or even the health of the body or mind. Whether you are aware of it or not, every step you take toward healing is a step toward consciousness. Everything you do in life is part of your healing journey toward the ultimate health of your true nature.
Only consciousness can heal our pain and suffering. Each moment contains an opportunity to awaken from the suffering of the ego mind into the health of consciousness. Our bodies are full of suppressed thoughts, emotions, fears, desires, insecurities, and judgments. These create and sustain our egos. In our unconsciousness, we keep our identification and attachment to our bodies, emotions, desires, and the world. Many unconscious thoughts and emotions are stored layer upon layer as patterns hardwired into our bodies’ cells. These patterns create energetic blocks in the body and cause physical and psychological pain and suffering. We heal into consciousness by peeling away these layers.
Only in our thoughts is there happiness and unhappiness, right and wrong, birth and death. When we stay identified with this ever-changing play of opposites that only exists in our mind, we fail to see what is permanent: the eternal presence of our being. As we get closer and closer to our being, we gradually move away from the duality of the mind and transform our ego into consciousness.
