The End

Healing is not the end, it is the beginning. A spiritual journey often starts with a moment of awakening that rattles our cage and snaps us into awareness. Then we enter a phase of withdrawing from everything we know to be true. A massive self inventory and self inquiry must occur. We go within and examine every last shred of who we have been and discover the deeper truth of who we are. Discarding what is no longer in resonance as the old self destructs. Eventually we reach the state of being healed or integrated which in essence is simply a return to our natural state of wholeness. This return to wholeness requires the integration of the knowledge that we are more than “just human”. We accept that we are an infinite spark having a finite experience. We accept that while death occurs, it is not the end. So often we achieve this level of awareness and proceed as if we are complete and free. At some point we must leave the inner plane of self and re-enter the world at large to put our knowledge to action. If we believe that all are one, that unity is the truth, then unity or wholeness within ourselves is just the beginning. We did not come here to stand in separation from the collective. If that is the case then we may as well isolate ourselves and spend our days living alone in a cave. Spiritual understanding and knowledge are useless if they are not put into action, and they must be put into action outside of our spiritual communities. We did not come here to sit in a tower, cut off from the rest of the world, preaching to the choir. We came here to connect and engage. We came to break down walls. To shatter the systems of control and separation. We came to rediscover our innate sovereignty. We can’t do that sitting on the sidelines. The inner unification and healing of self is crucial, but if it doesn’t act as a model to show and teach others how to do the same for themselves then it is pointless. If we believe that our journey of healing ends with us, then it has all been done in service of the ego. If this is the case then we have not truly healed at all.
