Healing With Love Part 4

By Robert Gray Hawk Coke


The Bible teaches us that what we sow we will reap.



Hate begot Hate; Anger begot Anger; Fear begot Fear


Safety begot Safety; Comfort begot Comfort

Love begot Love


The last three - safety, comfort, love -  must be present to make this work for everyone.


When I am totally open, give unconditional pure love and expect nothing in return, I get the same back 97 to 98% of the time. The unresponsive people mostly just have a puzzled look on their face as if they just did not know what happened to them.


I read of an experiment done by a Japanese scientist, who worked with water crystals. He studied them from many sources in different modes. Every time, the crystals were misshapen some way. Then he went back to a water source in the town and took another sample. Then he contacted a Tibetan High Monk and asked him to pray over the water sample. This time, the crystals are completely different. They were perfectly formed and beautiful in every way. You could say that the monk celebrated the water crystals’ spirit/soul.


Now think of our bodies which are mostly water ( approx. 75%). Our brain is closer to 85% water. Just think what we can do for each other with kind words and pure love. Every aspect of our being would benefit from prayers and acts of  pure love just as the water crystals did.


The Creator created us to be “light beings.” Yet many of us live in a dark, negative world. Perhaps it’s time for us to focus on changing it to a light, joyful world. If we were to begin with ourselves to practice this celebration of the spirit/soul, then we could pass these feeling on, like ripples on the water.  That could easily change much of the Darkness we are living in on Mother Earth. It would definitely help us all live in more harmony.
