THE LIFE AND MESSAGE OF SWAMI AMAR JYOTI
Human evolution and upliftment of consciousness do not come about through cultural or technological advance, but more by the blessing of spiritual unfoldment. In this sacred process, the Master-disciple relationship is paramount, so much so that it is known as the highest of all relationships on earth.
FAITH, THE GREATEST HEALER
by Swami Amar Jyoti
Just as we carry the seeds of karma to our next birth, we carry the seeds of disease. If you are not healed in this lifetime, you may take it to another life, whether it is physical or mental. Trust, which we call faith, is a must. Do not allow mistrust to affect you. Doubt is a disease. Mistrust denies communication, and when communication is denied or blurred, your cure will be delayed.
They say that what you see is knowledge, but there is a catch: you see with your physical eyes or your inner eye according to your level of consciousness. Your reality is what you perceive. If you profess to believe in God but inside believe in yourself, God is not going to come. What you truly believe is going to express. Therefore, everyone thinks they are right—from the angle they are seeing. If you know the nature of a thing as impermanent and rely upon it only to that point, there is nothing wrong with this. The illusory and transitory may be used, lived and played with as long as you are conscious that it is not permanent. This is how the wise live in the world. However, if we depend upon what is transitory, we will be deceived. Therefore, you need the power of conscience to distinguish between the Real and unreal.
Does healing come from within you or outside you? Normally the saying is: “Where there is smoke there is fire.” In the case of disease, where it resides is where the healing is needed. If true healing comes from elsewhere, it is because we have joined our inner power of healing with it. Not that medicine cannot cure you. The question is whether that is curing you alone or your faith and trust are integral to your healing? I am not against doctors or medicine. Please take their help, as well as herbs and other natural remedies created by God and mother nature. The question is whether these interventions heal you or you are healing yourself? The simple answer is: if medicine is the actual cure, why do the same methods not cure everyone? There must be a missing factor for those who are not cured. Why it doesn’t work? The normal religious explanation would be that you lack faith. A more analytical approach might say that somewhere within, you are doubting—not so much the medicine but the cure itself. Somehow you are feeling that you will not be cured or that you will suffer. You may doubt the remedy or feel helpless. This lack of conviction prevents you from being cured.
