The Healing Room in My Heart

In my heart is a ‘Healing Room’. In that room, the Truth of my existence lies imprinted on its walls. I’ve been fortunate enough to gain access to that Truth as I’ve moved through life, and when I suffer, it is a place of refuge, it is a place of comfort.

As the November WEGO Health Blog Month draws to an end, I want to share the Truth that I go to when the events of the world troubles me, or the circumstances of my life become unbalanced.  This post is linked to a previous post, A Healthy Perspective for a Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit, and adds to the list of some of the principles of life that makes living through hardships easier to bear.

When the storms of life are raging, I become silent, and withdraw into the heart-space of Truth. By the time I emerge, I am better equipped to face the lessons that await me. Here are a few snippets of the guiding principles that, without me knowing it, were always etched right here in my  heart;

  • Truth cannot be taught. It can only be experienced. Each one of us IS the Truth; we do not need to find it in books or through teachers. Books and teachers are only able to point at the Truth. It is each one of us that must realize it for ourselves.
  • We should never believe any concept until we have experienced the absolute Truth of it. Beliefs are dangerous artifacts that we’ve collected over aeons of time.
  • Human nature is built on beliefs that most people think are true, and that is why we are here. We are on a journey of un-doing these beliefs, so that we can uncover the Truth of who we are.
  • We do not need to learn anything to become enlightened. We just need to go about unlearning everything we’ve been taught to believe.
  • All the horrors that people go through have purpose and meaning. Entrenched beliefs that barricade our divinity are removed through our hardship. The more entrenched our beliefs, the harder the blow we receive.
  • We can’t forgive someone if we haven’t owned the experience they put us through. People are there to mirror an idea that needs to be released; no relationship that we have is an accident of nature. We ought not to even try to forgive, because forgiving is against the nature of Life; it is a redundant concept; it’s a lie because it implies we are a victim of someone else’s behaviour. The lie will make us ill, and it will eat away at the soul until it finally kills us.
  • Nobody dies from deadly disease. We die from deadly ideas.
  • My life no longer belongs to me. I live a life that has been previously surrendered to a greater wisdom. This greater wisdom guides me through circumstances that help my beliefs to unravel, bit by bit, until they finally drop away.
  • I can never die, but this body always does. I jump from lifetime to lifetime experiencing a series of events until every human belief is gone, and only the Truth is present. I am that Truth waiting to be re-discovered.
  • I am in the guardianship of a greater wisdom, and I know this because it keeps my body functioning when I am asleep and when I am busy with the hustle and bustle of life. It breathes me, it beats my heart, it operates the moving train of thoughts that travel through my mind and prompt me into action.
  • I can never make a mistake. Though it feels as if I do, I never make any decisions. Decisions arise through me.

These guidelines, I have discovered through the experience of letting go. When I find myself in pain, it means I am clinging to my ideas. I love this space in my heart, this heavenly retreat, because it is there that I am reminded of who I truly am, and it is there that I am filled with the energy to keep going.

Lots of love to you all.

  1. Yaz, you are one brilliant woman for sure! I believe this is your best blog yet. You have reminded me of the truth behind our limited concepts of ‘forgiveness.’ You are right. I agree with you. I tend to fall back into traps and have to be reminded. Thank you. It reminds me of compassion. It too takes one into the past and entrapped in dead-end avenues and moves us away from the truth. Ironically though, most will disagree with both sentiments as they sounds too harsh, disrespectful or not in alignment with the general population. I think this is a fabulous resource; I keeping it with my special things. 🙂

  5. I love-love-love your blog posts and have become essential reading for me now… Each one is so fresh yet to nourishing and filled with insights. The one about forgiveness in this post is remarkable and will stay with me a long time: “We ought not to even try to forgive, because forgiving is against the nature of Life; it is a redundant concept; it’s a lie because it implies we are a victim of someone else’s behaviour. The lie will make us ill, and it will eat away at the soul until it finally kills us.” WOW!

  7. Beautiful Yaz. Whatever our beliefs, whatever our understandings they must, as you say, come from within us; otherwise they are merely rote…!

  9. ‘When I find myself in pain, it means I am clinging to my ideas.’ – That should be blown up, printed huge and given to everyone in pain to be reminded of every time they open their eyes. This post is so profound Yaz. Yet another one to print out. Thanks heaps.

  11. This really stood out to me:
    “We can’t forgive someone if we haven’t owned the experience they put us through.’
    …Wow…you said it so beautifully. I never would have come up with it that way myself – it’s absolutely perfect and true.

  12. They were all great, but this one was the plum in the pudding 🙂 … I can never make a mistake. Though it feels as if I do, I never make any decisions. Decisions arise through me.
