Humbly and respectfully, I believe we must learn to better and better act in a healthful spirit of loving selflessness, allowing ourselves the true freedom of alleviating expectations, preset patterns of thinking, hidden agendas, and the need for selfish recognition. It is in the loving and altruistic spirit of true honesty, allowing for true happiness – it is realizing greater and greater mastery in playing the part of an unblemished ‘witness’ to our internal and external environments. It is the right thing for the right sake in selflessly embracing true health…alleviating the pernicious weight of what we may coin as our addictive emotional attachments and also what are most typically viewed as physical vices/attachments. In better and better realization of this healthful spirit, we can more so avoid getting permanently stuck on stagnant plateaus (which over time, can become like a purgatory/living death). Nothing can be more healthful than this deep positive outlook – and yin to yang, nothing can be more healing.
If one’s positive outlook is rooted in substantive and meaningful objective insight, then it becomes more and more real. If one’s so-coined “positive thinking” is rooted in silly, empty, superficial, or nonsensical outlooks, positive thinking is just blind and not real. This is not meant in a spirit of negativity – albeit genuine healthful change has to be founded on serious work and deep objective insight. We CAN learn to play the part of a less and less blemished witness to both our external and internal worlds, one reflecting upon the other, but once again, this must be rooted in genuine effort and insight. There may be nothing more healthful.
Consistent with this issue, it is significant to learn to NEED to genuinely embrace a deep abiding spirit of forgiveness of ourselves and others. If there is a Heaven, if there is a ‘key to the universe,’ if there is a ‘sixth sense,’ they are rooted in true honesty, promoting of true happiness and true freedom…but most importantly, needing less and less to hide behind. It can be a benevolent and selfless ‘glimpse’ of an existence, so-to-speak, in which we have no need for attachment to yesterday, today, or tomorrow – once again, nothing to hide behind…all is known.
Here in this existence, in a splendidly healthful spirit, we can live each day, each moment, inspired anew…more and more ‘present’ and embracing of the miracles/blessings of each moment…inclusive of healthful change. A key to unlock the door to true health, i.e., the ‘magic elixir,’ may be found in true appreciation – true appreciation of our best moments AND our difficult moments. This is our true responsibility, and is a beyond-words sparkling spine-tingling/shivering means by which to realize our most important responsibility of all…making this world a better place! This may be among the most important reasons we are here. Oh boy! — Dr. Glen Hepker
