The day did not start on the waking up’s good side, or at least that is what one person said about it. The symptoms were predictable; headache, tiredness, and a pain the stomach. There was no easy cause/effect relationship to pin the problem on, and the traditional remedies of aspirin, food, and rest did not seem to make a dent in things. Yet, healing occurred later in the day. The cure was not something we usually go looking for, or do we?
“A twinkle in the eye means joy in the heart, and good news makes you feel fit as a fiddle.” (Proverbs 15.30)
I find myself falling into the trap of waking up with a life hangover. No obvious cause(s) for the hangover pains that come with the morning, but the challenge of getting on with things is very real. It was observing the life of a teenager that let me in on Solomon’s point. One’s body responds to life differently when your heart is full and there is good news in the air.
If there was a hierarchy of healing methods this must be near the top for being inexpensive, least harmful to existing body functions, and effectiveness in bring about a restoration. There is no visible cost, other than a smile, laugh, and gentle sharing of the eyes. Medical science has yet to record an example where this type of human interaction has caused harm to any person’s body and or parts. The effectiveness varies, however it makes a difference in all cases while in certain cases it is the only known cure. The only question is why we do not look to it sooner and more often.
There are two questions that sit with me this morning. Why do I not seek this remedy when I wake up at less than 100%? Secondly, am I a healer for others? If I answer the second I will know the first.
A healer is one connected to the Source; any else is destruction.
God, connect and fill me with the Presence that brings union.
