This is a beautiful and sophisticated understanding of healing by Sarah Varcas.
"There can sometimes be a subtle (or at times not so subtle!) judgement placed upon physical, emotional and mental dis-ease. Opinions about the cause of disease, what it says about the individual and the part they’ve played in their own health (or lack of it) can be under-pinned by an inference that if you’re suffering in some way it’s because you’re not really up to scratch, not ‘spiritual enough’ to be well, not taking full responsibility for your own well-being: your thoughts are wrong, your beliefs are skewed, you’re not living in the right paradigm.
For some, the more expansive nature of being is intimately encountered from within a failing body; for others the onset of disease is a wake-up call to rearrange life in dramatic ways, or an opportunity to develop humility or gratitude amidst the challenge of limitation. Some discover amazing abilities to heal themselves while others face the frustration of suffering that will not abate no matter what they do, only to eventually discover the blessings of wisdom in adversity. The heavens assure us that healing comes in all shapes and sizes and is not only characterized by unbounded physical, emotional and psychological well-being.
To embrace the values of others or compare our different journeys can become a competition for who’s the healthiest, the fastest, the most spiritually adept. But if there’s one thing that’s not a competition it’s healing! And if there’s another thing so profoundly personal that no one else’s opinion matters, it’s our own wholeness.
Chiron invites each and every one of us into its healing embrace, not to be made perfect but to be reacquainted with our imperfect selves, knowing them as whole even as they lay broken before us. It reminds us that humility can be a door to grace, that in the divine eye all things are perfectly as they need to be, no matter how much we may judge them (and ourselves) as wanting. To be whole is simply to be who we are, no matter what shape we take."
