How often do we use that phrase, “Nothing’s wrong” from a state of denial when we don’t really want to tell someone what is bothering us? If only we knew how true that statement is from a perspective of higher consciousness – the state of what may be called Unity Consciousness.
Or how often do we either think there must be something wrong with us, or with someone else? How often do we hear or say the phrase, “What’s wrong with you?” I hope we choose to avoid saying that phrase, because it is so hurtful to the consciousness of others, and I hope that we avoid thinking that there is something “wrong” with ourselves and others.
One morning recently, I was busy thinking something must be “wrong” with me (even while meditating!), when it came to me that there is nothing wrong with me or with anyone, that instead, we all need healing.
Please allow me to share the explanation I was given. In the state of Unconditional Love, which might be called God-consciousness, no one is ever judged. That’s right, God does not judge us as “right” or “wrong.”
Despite the practices of so many religions saying that something is wrong and that God will judge us for our actions, God does not make those judgments. Even in Christianity, Jesus Christ said, “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” He added that the judgment by which we judge others will be the same judgment that we ourselves receive. That’s karmic – the unfolding of our own karma for judging others, or ourselves. Karma is the natural consequence we receive for our actions, without judgment, just consequences.
What we experience as “wrong” whether in ourselves or in others, is simply some aspect of ourselves that needs healing. There’s no need to judge ourselves or others for needing healing. Having a need to heal simply means that we have felt or been wounded in some way. There is no shame in that.
We all need healing in some way because we have all been wounded, or have some “lack” of something like a particular talent or particular form of intelligence. If we were perfectly at one with God, we would be perfectly capable of doing anything, and we would be incapable of experiencing woundedness.
As it is, we are all wounded by our separation from God. In the most profound sense, our ultimate healing is achieving oneness with God. Until then, all of us will appear to have something “wrong” with us, or to be imperfect or limited in some way. Please note, I did write “appear” to be limited or imperfect. Everything imperfect is only temporary.
What about asking the question “Isn’t there a whole lot that is wrong with the world?” That would also be making a judgment if we state that something is “wrong.” Are there events and actions that are hurtful, destructive, wounding to our bodies, minds, hearts, and souls? Yes, but these events and actions arise out of a sense of separation from God, and so they help us become aware of our need for healing in the world.
All the world needs healing. All the world needs to become one with the unconditional love and peace of God. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “All creation is groaning in travail” giving birth to God. In other words, the whole Universe is laboring to re-unite with our Source, by giving birth to God through our own existence.
All we can do is to start with ourselves.
What will it feel like when we stop thinking something is wrong with us? What will it feel like when we stop thinking something is wrong with others? What will the world be like when we stop seeing it as “wrong” and start seeing it as needing love and healing, acceptance and connection, instead of judgment and separation?
The main message I heard from the Universe that morning was that, when something or someone seems wrong to us, we just need to know that there is a need for healing. In each of us, and in each situation, there are degrees of healing needed.
So, when we look at one another, we can begin by looking for all that Is Love, and then love and accept all the parts that need healing. We can then seek to connect. One of the most profound ways to connect or to stay connected, as I read in an article recently,* is to express gratitude.
Appreciation is a beautiful energy, very non-threatening. So, let’s appreciate all the beauty and love and talent and intelligence and wisdom and so on that we see in ourselves and others. Everything else just needs healing.
There is so much beauty in the world, even at a time when it is globally obvious that we still need so much healing. May we all learn to appreciate one another, and to remember that, ultimately, in our most healed state, we are One.
Love and Light,
