Glen, why is it so uncommon for us to utilize our spiritual resources to heal our human physical body too…? (An inquiry from a reader of my book.)
Response: Humbly and respectfully, I believe that, in our popular culture it is quite common to look for immediate gratification from outside of ourselves, vs. looking to gather true objective insight from within ourselves. Anything that can be popularly viewed as ‘out in left field’ (in this case most particularly those things which are NOT rooted in silliness, e.g., those things that are rooted in true goodness and true honesty) can seem frightening and/or something that would require substantive change and true effort. We often look to our perceived ‘kings’ and ‘queens’ for how to be, when in fact we would be best served by a truly healthful willingness to make the world a better place by way of our own effort.
There are magical things going on ALL of time (and not speaking of ‘parlor trick’ types of magic), inside of us, and all around us, which we choose to ignore, have no interest in, and/or are untrained to be aware of, part of. In the ages-old health/wellness arts that I teach, coach, and endeavor to follow, it is said that, “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.”
In the truly loving, selfless, and altruistic spirit of dignity, decency, goodness, and grace, and in genuinely trying to do the right thing for the right sake (without the need for selfish recognition or hidden agendas), it is a ‘glimpse’ of an existence, so-to-speak, where there is no time, no space, no distance…but once again, most importantly, nothing to hide behind – all is known. This can be seemingly quite scary stuff – but in better and better realization of True Health, it can be understood that NOT UNDERSTANDING, not gathering true objective and loving insight, is the most scary and frightening thing of all. Oh boy!
To complement this outlook, it is significant to realize that possibly, “there is a place where, wherever you are there, whatever you are doing, there should be no place you would rather be. It IS where you are right now…and each moment, if you make it so.” It takes true effort, true strength, but nothing, nothing whatsoever, can be better, than a ‘glimpse of Heaven.’ NOTHING can be more healing! — Dr. Glen Hepker (Copyright 2011)

You are so right, Glen. Much of every kind of healing requires the “inner” as well as medicines from the “outer.” Hugs.
