There is an ancient teaching story about two Buddhist monks walking along a river in silence. They have a vow of chastity -which includes many vows, but one of these vows of chastity requires that they never speak to, or ever touch a woman.
As they walk up the river, they come upon a woman who is desperately trying to get across the river because her child is on the other side. It is a fast-flowing river and she is frightened to cross the river by herself.
The one monk walks over to her and says, “May I help you?” He picks her up and with the strength that he carries in his legs that walk mountains and valleys and streams as part of his work, he carries her across the river, sets her down, returns to join his fellow and they begin again to walk in silence.
About two hours later the second monk says to the first monk, “I can’t believe you carried that woman across the river. I can’t believe you touched her. I can’t believe that you broke your vows.”
The other monk simply looks at his companion and says, “I put her down two hours ago. You are still carrying her.”
It’s such a wonderful story about us simply learning to put something down.
I had an experience a while ago: I was stewing over an incident I had with a woman. I felt that she had taken away business from me. I just could not stop thinking about it. It was going through my mind all the time. I was wallowing in my self pity so much, that I did not want to look at my own input in the situation and I did not want to use my PSYCH-K® tools.
After a couple of days of this, I developed an excruciating pain in my jaw. I could not open my mouth to talk or chew anymore. Knowing that this pain was totally psycho-somatic I was forced to sit down and have a close look at my thinking pattern and my beliefs.
Jaw problems are quite often an expression of anger, resentment and a desire for revenge. Well that was very clear. In my case I had many vengeful thoughts. Now I was forced to do something about it.
I sat down and asked myself what my part in the situation was. I had to admit to myself that I did not do the follow-up that was required.
I balanced with PSYCH-K® the following beliefs: “I easily change the patterns in me that created this condition”, “I release this painful situation and expect the best for now and in the future”, “I freely ask for what I want and deserve”.
The pain lessened almost immediately and an hour later disappeared completely.
Henry Ford said: “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right!”
As we think, we become! We become what we belief! We have the infinite wisdom to tap into what brings the most healing and most transforming and bring gifts for us and the people around us.
Let’s consider what are we still carrying that really isn’t happening anymore. What are we still hanging onto that isn’t in our present moment?
Let’s put it down… And when we put that down, we now have our hands, our heart and our mind available to what’s here, right now.
