Original post from Bonnie Origen on The Wisdom Journal with some (my) additional thoughts. Thanks, Bonnie!
Humanity’s expansion carries with it strains and dis-harmonies that are the inevitable effect of aspiration and application. We are blessed to have now available a resurrection of ancient and esoteric energetic means of assistance. In our joint process of expansion/ascension, it is imperative that we release judgement and focus upon the temples being constructed, the love and courage of the architects, and the promise for all of us and the cosmos. The following is an excerpt from Esoteric Healing, pg. 192:
“Only when the soul, consciously and with the cooperation of the personality, builds the temple of the body, and then keeps it full of light, will disease disappear, this building is, however, a scientific process, and in the early stages of discipleship [which is the time wherein the soul begins to grasp its instrument, the personality] this leads inevitably to conflict, increased strain and frequently aggravated disease and disharmony. This dis-harmony and dis-ease lead to much necessary trouble and consequent undesirable effects. [note the word ‘necessary’] These effect will be overcome but – in the interim of adjustment-whilst they are registering and expressing themselves, there will be much distress, physical and psychological, and all the major and minor difficulties to which humanity seems heir.”
My additional thoughts (dmm)
There are two sides to the point being made by Master DK. One is that with cooperation within the embodied Wholeness of a person, dis-ease (troublesome tension) will be reduced and eventually dissolved. This is dimensional and applies to all layers of substantial reality and Being. As there is more cooperation and at-one-ment within oneself there is congruent cooperation and at-one-ment with all others. Little by little, this cooperation undoes the karmic propensities that usually project energetic dis-ease (troublesome tension) through one’s and humanity’s circumstances and livingness.
Additionally, with ongoing mediation and opening comes a softening of the parameters and fabrications of separateness. Dis-ease lives as war, poverty, and aggression on any scale, greed and coveting on any scale, which all have the same diseased base: separatism. Therefore, as one creates a cooperative basis within oneself, one effects cooperation within one’s world environment, one’s karmic trajectory, and how one commands energy streams.
Disease for disciples (those advanced or advancing on the Path) is due less to non-coordiation but – in fact – to it. In other words, the coordination and cooperative functioning within the subtle systems, compassion, and wisdom streams create a useful instrument for re-keying or transmutation of forces and energetics kept in motion by separatism and its progeny. This is classically given to us in the imagery of Christ descending into hell or the Bodhisattva doing the same or giving a chunk of his or her flesh to a being in need.
As aggression and greed and such are decreased, then the causes of disease such as pollution, malnutrition, poisoned food, stress, materialism, etc. will also decrease in the world.
Bonnie then added:
There are so many disciples during this period working to help create balance in the world yet there is much judgement due to the emphasis that has been placed on the need to eliminate disease and “heal ourselves.” In other posts I’ve called attention to the service that many strong souls and leaders have contributed by their disease; mentioning Lama Yeshe and Aurobindo, even the Dalai Lama. There is a need with the spread and benefits of “new age” beliefs and healing techniques to understand the sides which you have presented.
Yes, Bonnie. As part of one wholeness, we must increasingly share the load of karmic debt together with its transformation. That includes changing our individual ways and awareness, which will change events and circumstances in the world. This sharing also includes those who can are like rivers that clean out waste and toxins thrown into the river or that seep into the soil. It is not only several Rinpoches and saints who live this particular aspect of the bodhisattva nature of being human but many disciples and initiates on the Path. In truth, this function is not from genius or inventiveness or artistry. It is simply a particular function as are those examples. Those who are trained and suited for it, do it, as with the other examples of skill.
