Healing (1)


Some claim that they do healing. An educated or uneducated man and woman wish, want and desire a healing. The healing that healers do in life is done in the moment and is known in the moment. 

The educated or uneducated man and woman believe that they will be healed by the healing that the healer does and they attend healing sessions earnestly given by the healer. 

Every educated or uneducated man and woman also knows that healing that is done by the healer may or may not happen. This is known in the moment in life as well.

Wisdom reveals that every moment in life renews itself and in between a moment in the mind and in life is moment as well. This signifies that a moment in life and in the mind is eternal.

Brain scans reveal that decisions happen seven seconds before man decides. The scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences reveal that human decisions are made seconds before humans become aware of them. 

In the study, participants could freely decide if they wanted to press a button with their right or left hand. The only condition was that they had to remember when they made the decision to use either their right hand or left hand. 

Using FMRI, researchers scanned the brains of the participants to find out if they could predict which hand the participants would use before participants were consciously aware of the decision. 

The results, by monitoring the micro patterns of activity in the front-polar cortex, were that the researchers could predict which hand the participant would choose seven seconds before the participant was aware of the decision. 

Wisdom reveals that this is proof that man neither decides nor predicts nor does. Wisdom also reveals that even the movement of the hand to press the button happens and the brain does not make the movement happen in the moment. 

Wisdom further reveals that the thought to do healing and the healing happen for understanding to happen that only moving is in every moment and that every moment is only moving. Also, for wise understanding to happen that moving in every moment is instinct and instinct cannot be done by man or his brain.

To do healing and the doing happen for understanding to happen that healing is not an actuality in a moment. To do healing and the doing happen for understanding to happen that healing in the moment is illusory and not real. To do healing and the doing happen for understanding to happen that the healing action is not present, but only moving is present.

This signifies that, if the healer is healing, every moment he will be healing and this is not true, as even the healer knows.

The enlightened accept man or woman as they are and do not expect them to do healing, because they understand that healing is not present, but only moving is present in any moment in life. 

Sri Ramana Maharishi has declared that what is meant to happen, albeit illusory, will happen. Sri Adi Shankaracharya has declared that man is not the doer in Nirvanashadakam. Kenopanishad verse (1.3) declares that Word and mind cannot access the Absolute One. Bhagwat Gita chapter 3 verse 27 declares that man is not the doer. 

The enlightened understand that the moving in any moment is instinct and is manifested by the intelligence in life and is done neither by man nor by his brain. The enlightened have declared that life is a singular movement.

Editor’s Note:
Since human beings, creatures and living things first inhabited the earth, there has been experience of conditions known as sickness and health. Man has always been in search of remedies that dispel sickness and restore health. They are a sine qua non of living. Understandably, therefore, healing has very positive connotations, particularly if its remedial benefits are sought. Many techniques have evolved for the purpose of healing and many distances travelled in search of effective help. The belief in the power of healing has been firmly rooted in the human psyche by the intelligence of life. The wise declare that neither the healing action nor the healer is an actuality in the moment; both are illusory. Healing is done neither by man nor by his brain. What is meant to happen will happen.

German Translator‘s Note: 
In medical jargon, a non-responder is a test person or patient who does not respond or does not respond as expected to a certain procedure (e.g. a certain medication, a certain operation) or who does not respond as expected.
After a vaccination, for example, one speaks of a non-responder if the vaccinated person does not produce any antibodies or does not produce enough antibodies after a correctly given vaccination. Approximately 3-5 % of people vaccinated against hepatitis B do not produce antibodies or produce far too few antibodies after the first vaccination. This can be determined by a blood test in the laboratory after about one month. In such a case one is considered as a non-responder without safe vaccination against hepatitis B. 
If the vaccination were real, everyone would have to be vaccinated. However, like healing, every pharmaceutical dose and its effects are also precisely manifested by life, albeit completely illusory. It is impossible to determine more than a general probability about the drug effect, which never affects the specific patient. Life is unpredictable.
