One of my dear friends who is also a medical doctor working on the frontlines in NYC texted me to let me know how much she enjoys reading my daily emails even if she cannot attend the zoom sessions. That really touched my heart. I was so happy to know that the writing I was sharing was helpful to her. As I thought about my friend and her devotion to medicine, my mind went to the many other hundreds and thousands of other health care workers showing up to be truly helpful during this pandemic.
A prayer emerged from my heart:
How can I serve them, Spirit? Show me. Please guide me. I want to be truly helpful.
And as usual, the answer to my prayer was not what I expected. 🙂
I recalled my experience of being in Utah at a Living Miracles retreat last summer where we were surrounded by mountains- in their stunning majesty and expansive glory. They were the witness to the deep silence awakening within me. The mountains also represented a sense of stability and security that felt so enduring and perhaps even eternal. Just by being in the company of the great mountains, my mind would become still and I felt a hunger to experience more of this in my everyday life.
What do mountains have to do with helping others including healthcare professionals?
When we enter the space of deep stillness, prayer, and reverence, we can extend an invitation to all our brothers and sisters to join us – no matter where they are. They can also receive this deep inner peace because minds are always connected even if bodies seem to be separated.
During this time of social isolation, we can truly experience this deep interconnectedness in so many ways. For example, in our healing zoom circles, we meet mighty companions of all ages from all over the world. When we join in prayer and meditation, the silence, love, and stillness can be felt across space and time by each one of us.
After receiving this experience of being with the mountains, I slept deeply. When I awoke this morning, I felt guided to read from Lesson 109 of A Course in Miracles as well as from the text section, “The Little Garden.”
The old medical model taught me that healing was about the body and about healing one separate person. Yet this quantum view shows me that healing is of the mind and can extend to all other minds that are open and willing to receive this message of love, peace, and joy. The healing of the body follows from that space. This may look like the body recovering but if it is time for the spirit to transition out of the body, then this too shall pass. Healing has occurred nevertheless. In medicine, we must support each other to broaden our understanding of healing to accept death and dying of the body, knowing that the spirit is eternal.
Here is part one of our talk.
Here is part two.
Here is the guided meditation.
Tomorrow is our last day! Please join if you can.
