Healing The Universe is an Inside Job
"Healing the universe is an Inside
Job" is a quote that was printed at the bottom of an email send to me by my good
friend Tajuana. When I first read it, I thought "Wow" what a great line Ė Iíll
have to use it somewhere. After thinking about it for a few minutes I now see
that the line is in complete error.
The universe is perfect the way it is.
It is the matrix from which all forms of life interact with each other to
experience the physical life. It is a playground or buffet of experiences from
which we choose.
As a blank piece of paper would be the
background from which we draw our lines, the universe as it is, simply
represents the thoughts of its inhabitants. To say that a piece of paper needs
healing would be incorrect. The line filled paper with its meaningless scribbles
and useless information is simply representative of the mind that drew them. The
universe or at least a very tiny part of it may be filled with humanities
insanity, but it is the human mind that has created it not the universe. Man
creates all that he/she experiences. The bathwater may be dirty but it started
out clean; what caused it? You may have nice clean fresh sheets on you bed, but
that will change the more you lie in them. It is not the universe that needs
healing; it is humanity.
To say that "healing the universe is
an inside job" simply is a nice way to say that "we" need healing. We are not
separate from the universe; we are intimately connected to it. And the issue I
have with using the terminology, or being nice, is that we take away the
responsibility for directing the healing where it is needed the most. In other
words, if something or someone else needs healing, it is not us and any energy
given to the task of healing the universe will not go where it will do the most
The bottom line here is that the
universe is literally commanded by your words, and it takes them literally.
Thought, word, and deed Ė the word is the command for action and it must be
absolutely clear. The universe does not interpret what we say. This is the
secret to why most people do not get what they want, because they have not made
it perfectly clear to the universe as to what it is that they want.
The mind commands the universe to
create by using words, and it is the function of the universe to obey without
second guessing. You may ask for a million dollars because you think it will
make you happy, but the order you put in was for a million dollars - not for
I like the line, and it sounds very
meaningful and spiritual, but it simply does not work, and it takes us away from
the true issue, and that is that man is sickening his part of the universe and
he needs to be healed, and that is an inside job.
The other issue is that most of us
wouldnít want to hear "Healing man is an inside job." We donít want to
contemplate that we are ill or need healing. It is common place in our society
to look at another and say itís you, not me!
Our culture and language are full of
these nice sayings and we keep using them because it makes us feel good to say
them and it moves the responsibility for change to something or someone else.
Our language is probably our greatest
obstacle in creating or experiencing what we want. The words we choose separate
us from each other, the universe, and all the things we desire.
The first and greatest step to healing
the universe is to heal the creator; heal man, and the universe will
automatically heal itself.
