An educated or uneducated man and woman wish, want or desire to do healing in life. That they cannot do healing in life is known in the moment only after the healing cannot be done by them.
Whenever the educated or the uneducated man or woman cannot do healing in life they are not contented and happy for not being able to do healing. The educated or uneducated man and woman believe that they will not be contented and happy if healing cannot be done for them.
Every educated or uneducated man and woman, who is not healed of fear, does know that they are in fear and also believe that they will not be in fear if healing is done for them. 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 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.
The thought that healing is not done happens for understanding to happen that healing is not an actuality in a moment. The thought that healing is not done happens for understanding to happen that the healing in any moment is illusory and not real. The thought that healing is not done happens for understanding to happen that the healing is not present, but only moving is present in every moment. Also, for wise understanding to happen that moving in every moment is instinct and instinct cannot be done by man or his brain.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as healing, it is believed that man and woman do healing which he or she is expected to do.
Wisdom reveals that healing cannot be done in the moment because life is only moving in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that the intelligence in life manifests the moving and man or woman does not make the moving in the moment happen. This is because they do not make the moment in life.
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. The enlightened proclaim that what is meant not to happen, albeit illusory, will not happen.
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 is instinct in any moment 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.

A pack of animals or a gathering of human beings is granted a leader in nature by the intelligence of life. Even a flower displays a head. To the leader or to the head is also granted prominence and authority. So, it is natural that man may take credit for achievements, albeit illusory, especially those which have gained approval and respect. The wise have revealed in these articles that there are no human achievements that are carried out by man or by his brain. Even decisions supposedly taken by people have been demonstrated scientifically to have happened before the people were actually aware of them. The wise have declared that only moving is present in any moment of life.

German Translator‘s Note:
We all want to be healthy and happy. Happiness is not easy without health, because for a happy mind, everything that makes it happy comes from the actions of as active a body or mind as possible. When one goes to the doctor or to a healer, one expects to be healed. However, if the healing does not take place due to a mistake or purely by chance, there is a great disappointment, especially because medicine has been constantly developing faster and faster in recent years and many things are taken for granted. The wisdom of this article by Dr. Shankar is not only to realistically assess the expectations about healing, but also to understand that happiness does not necessarily depend on the body and its health. Body and health are nevertheless an illusory thought in the mind.
