The etymology of the word "radical" is 'of the root.' In other words, our deepest truth.
The etymology of "healing" means 'to make whole.'
The path of 'radical healing' is to make us whole at the root, to fuse our deepest truth with our wholeness, and live from there.
In a sense radical healing is the simplest of paths - it requires nothing more of us than to live from the deepest truth and wholeness. No special doctors, no special treatments, no special equipment..no legitimate, actual barriers.
But, in practice, nothing about this path is easy.
To live from our deepest wholeness and trust is actually revolutionary. It makes us uncontrollable to the external control structures.
But the payoff is huge: freedom, sovereignty, peace. And once we have a taste of the good stuff flowing unceasingly from an inexhaustible, abundant wellspring within, we will never look on the outside for this experience again.
We will never look among the branches for what that which can only be found among the roots.
And then: peaceful, sovereign, free, and whole, embodying our deepest truth, we will make radically different choices on the outside. Because we cannot create on the outside but we do not embody on the inside. And so, this is how we change the world. Embodying our wholeness and our truth, and then doing the next right thing. It is an inner act of revolution, long before it is an act on the outside. But when we do act, it carries the energetic signature of our true, innate, human power.
And it is good. It is exactly the medicine that the world needs right now.
When we heal ourselves, we heal the whole world.
There is no greater purpose in life, no matter what we spend our days “doing.”
And, in this way, we are all healers. Magicians, sorcerers. Embodying heaven on earth. Bringing the divine to life.
With honor for all, amen.
