Question : If all that is happening to us is Karma, then how can you resolve it and why would you want to resolve it? Are you trying to play God by being a therapist and trying to change things?
Answer : Yes indeed, everything happening in our lives has a reason. And it is perfect. Everything is destined to be exactly as it is. In fact, our ancients have said that not even a blade of grass can move unless it is predetermined.
Unfortunately, the issue is that most of us understand this only as a philosophy, but don’t get it in practicality. Because if we truly got it, we would have had supreme peace in our beings.
So when the parents are not available for a child, the child would have been at peace and accepted that it is his Karma. Or when the husband turns abusive/distant, the wife would have known that it is Karmic and been at peace about it. Or when a person loses his life’s savings and is bankrupt, he would have known that it is perfect and been very still within.
Sadly, most of us don’t have the ability to look at life with detachment and to look at it without getting emotionally disturbed.
Therapists, Counselors and Healers are not trying to play God. They are not trying to change your Karma. They are simply working with the mind to bring it to a point where it is completely at peace with whatever is happening around in one’s life. The therapist/healer is working to bring the mind to a stillness and alignment, from where the mind would be able to clearly listen to the Voice of the Soul.
Now if the person seeking, needs Inner Child Healing for his mind to find peace, the therapist would do that. If the person needs work with the Chakras to find inner peace, that is what would happen. If the person needs counseling or psychotherapeutic approaches, then so be it. And if the person needs a Past Life Regression for the mind to find its stillness, then the therapist would take the mind into the recesses of the Past.
Every Therapist/Healer is only working to facilitate the mind into a state of Inner Peace and Inner Stillness – away from the polarities of emotions and the dichotomies of thoughts. For it is only in the depths of Silence that the voice of the Inner-Divine can be heard.
