Everybody knows the saying, time heals all wounds. But what if this is not the case? What is time anyways and how does it heal? What is that time doing to or for us that makes us heal? The truth is, time doesn’t heal wounds. Time only exists in the mind. So, if time does not heal…then what does heal? You heal yourself.
Time being the healer is an illusion. You are the healer. It is what you do with that time that which heals you. Your thoughts, your presence or non presence, your acceptance or non acceptance is what will heal you or prevent you from healing. Whatever it may be that you are healing from, death of a loved one, loss of a job, being a victim of any kind of abuse, it doesn’t matter. We get the illusion that time is the healer because as moments pass, our acceptance of our reality in the present moment gets greater and greater. Surrender in the present moment is the healer; acceptance. This is not something that comes automatically. If your thought process is constantly against your present moment – you won’t enter healing no matter how much time has passed. If your thought process is more in acceptance of your present moment, you will enter healing.
I feel like this is a good time to mention hope too.
“I hope things get better soon.”
“I hope I can get over this one day.”
“I hope my financial troubles don’t last too long.”
It doesn’t matter what you place at the end, but for this topic’s purpose, we’ll gear towards “I hope one day I am healed.”
The word “hope” points to a place in the future, a place that does not exist yet. So, when we “hope” what else are we doing than spending our present moments in the future because of the past – we are spending our time in illusion because of an illusion. Does it make any true sense? If you’re spending your days hoping for something for the future, what are you doing in your present moment other than spending that time in the illusion of the future? Is spending time in illusion going to assist you in accomplishing what you are hoping for? Usually, it is not. If you just have hope, hope is all that you will have. If you have hope and presence, you can start taking those steps towards whatever you hope for. If I hope that one day I am healed, if I am not doing anything with my present moment other than hoping. If I hope that one day I am healed, and if I am spending my moments doing things that will assist me, than I have hope and presence. Hope without presence is just hope – simply a time in the future that has yet to exist – an illusion. Hope with presence is change. Hope with presence is progress. Hope with presence is reality.
In whatever that you are trying to overcome, just remember that time won’t heal your wounds for you – only you can do this. And if you hope to make progress in your healing, remember to retain your presence.
It should also be noted, that the word “healed” is a limiting word. This word limits you to “unhealed” or “healed”. But what about that grey space, why does there need to be an end result? Why limit yourself to “healed” when you could have “healing”?
