Heal Thyself, Self!

We are about to embark on the month of March. At CSL Kaua’i it will be all about healing. We’ve claimed our theme to be “Heal Thyself.” This is a tricky phrase, but I know what I mean by this.

First of all there is nothing really to be healed. This is the first step in healing. Secondly, the self I am talking about is the small self. The person this is addressed to – “Heal Thyself,” is my real Self. What I know is that the Real Self is continually teaching and imparting knowing to the self. The self is the mind that is yet to discover itself as part of the Whole. The Self already knows everything. On this plane of action, we tend to get stuck in the small self and the way it looks and experiences everything.

Have you ever asked yourself who is thinking right now? Are you an observer of your thoughts? If we can become one, we will see that there is a silent observer – our Real Self – who already knows everything. Who is already perfect. Who is just enjoying the show. We are not our thoughts. We are not even our experiences. We heal when we realize this. So, healing is revealing. It is revealing our True Identity, whether it be in the area of prosperity, relationships, health or our ability to creatively express.

I believe that we hold onto the small self because we feel safer. It might be hard for some of us to let go of the world of form and say that it is only an effect. It might feel strange to realize that everything is really Spirit. It might be an odd, unnatural thought to realize that you can change your environment by changing the way you think. We’ve been downloading the other false information for eons. This to me is what evolution is all about – waking up – realizing we are conscious creators.

We now know what the mystics have known all along. There is a quantum field, a formless substance that takes form through the impress of our thoughts. It is the world we are seeing and experiencing. If we want to change it, we only need to look at differently. We need to get what seems like a new idea. It takes consciousness to do this. We’ve been a remote for a long time.

There is only one Power. It is neutral. Ernest Holmes wrote, “Freedom and bondage, sickness and health, poverty and riches, Heaven and Hell, good and bad, big and little, happiness and misery, peace and confusion, faith and fear, and all conditions which appear to be opposites, are not really a result of the operation of opposing powers, but ARE THE WAY THE ONE POWER IS USED.”

If there is anything to heal, it is our viewpoint on life. If there is anything to heal, it is our opinion of ourselves. If there is anything to heal, it is our inability to forgive the past. If there is anything to heal, it is our lack of gratitude. If there is anything to heal, it is our feelings of separation from the Whole and our relationship to the Whole, Perfect Universe. If there is anything to heal it is our feelings of love of self.

Let’s continue this journey… Let us begin this week by giving ourselves a little more love.

Love and Aloha,

Rev. Rita
