True healing

People grow into the shapes we make for them. They are what we expect of them. They repeat behaviors we encourage. Whatever we think they will be, they become. Each one of us shapes the other.

This is how Jesus was a healer. He saw in kairos time. He saw the lotus in the person. Not the mud, but the flower that comes from it. He saw the completed, the potential, actualized. He saw the all, not just the right then, or the past of that person. And people’s mirror neurons reacted to that. They awakened to who they were meant to be, who they are in God’s eyes.

He couldn’t heal the righteous, because they thought they weren’t broken. They thought they were whole. There was no room for growth, healing, improvement.

To heal, be opened. Just like in AA, you have to admit that you need help before you can heal. Jesus would ask people how he could help them and they had to name their illness. He could see what was wrong, but the real healing came when they could see it too and ask for help.


About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.
