with as little complaint, and as much gratefulness as possible.
Having hope I do not find helpful - just the opposite in fact.
I don’t know, and I often do wonder about, Past Lives, and Karma - and
things like that. Not that it makes any difference.
Back in the sixties/seventies in California, a woman had an accident and
was paralysed. She was told she would not walk again. I think her name was
As I remember the incident… she got the surgeon to give her illustrations
of the part of the back involved, together with pictures of the damaged
cells in that area. She meditated, and got to walking again.
I think she wrote a book: “Don’t Push the River.”
Someone I knew was the first person to have their diagnosis of HIV
positive revert to negative.
I think this is the formula: Being with what is - and not just
automatically accepting what we have been told is possible and not
Acknowledging the preferences, and just being open, for whatever.
Love - the healing force.
In a way, gratefulness is love, and love is gratefulness.

Once and only once when I was very lost... I heard very clearly in words, "just breathe". I Never heard it since and hopefully don't need to be told again. I hope this helps. Peace, love and butterflies. gnetka
