I choose to live. This has never been so clear in my soul, heart, mind and body as now.
I choose to live to help my beloved spiritual teacher, Master Sha, in whatever small way I can to accomplish the tasks he's been given in this lifetime.
I choose to live to help others awaken and bring an end to their suffering.
I choose to live to help create a world of love, peace and harmony.
Earlier this week, results from x-rays and an MRI left me overwhelmed, saddened, and grieving. As happens with sickness, everything changes moment by moment. Love and support came from friends and loved ones. Instantly, I felt my heart open again. But it wasn't until the next day, when I sat in silence that it became crystal clear that every moment, we make a choice to live or die. It may not seem so to you, but in reality that is what we are doing. We are choosing to forge forward in life with purpose or to die a slow painful death, perhaps with unfulfilled dreams or complete lack of understanding. [Note: My health issues are painful and potentially debilitating, but not life-threatening.]
The moment I chose to live, the heaviness, dread and bleakness lifted. Whatever any Western medical or holistic medical professional told me, this fundamental choice had to be made. The realization also came that my approach to healing would be the same whether the news got worse or better and so my healing journey began anew seventeen years after meeting my beloved spiritual teacher, Master Sha, and healing Crohn's, leaky gut and an ulcer with his Four Power Techniques, and with guidance from an amazing naturopath.
In the coming weeks and months, I will share my journey with you and hope you share your journey with me. In this joining of our hearts and souls, we will help each other to open our hearts and heal not only ourselves, but we will help to heal the world.
Please share your story with me and if you are open, I suggest that you get a copy of Da Ai, Greatest Love, by Dr and Master Sha, Master Maya Mackie, and Master Francisco Quintero. It's a beautiful small book that will literally leave you feeling bathe in love. Hope you enjoy reading it and doing the practices!
With the greatest love and gratitude,
