Art: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination or experience
Healing: the process of becoming balanced again or to restore to sound health
As far back as I can remember, I intuitively knew that healing was going to be a main part of my journey this time around. I have pursued this exploration on just about every level of my existence. We all come to experience what it means to heal at some point. We may need to heal due to a loss or trauma. It may be physical or emotional, or perhaps some healing is required on the spiritual level.
Following is my favorite aphorism (“Aphorism #9”) of The Organon of the Medical Art by Samuel Hahnemann:
“In the healthy human state, the spirit-like force (autocracy) that enlivens the material organism as dynamis; governs without restriction; and keeps all parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both feelings and functions, so that our indwelling, rational spirit can freely avail itself of this living, healthy instrument for the higher purpose of our existence.”
