HOW TO HEAL YOURSELF – GURDIP HARI
A beautiful story that I read on the internet reflects the reality of who we truly are. Once an eagle’s egg was placed in the nest of a chicken. When the egg hatched and the little eagle grew up with other chickens, It always thought of itself to be a chicken.
So the eagle did what the chickens did, and scratched in the dirt for seeds and flew no more than a few feet. He imagined how different and exciting life would have been if he had been like that bird, soaring high above to explore the great blue skies.
Not realizing that he was also an eagle, he lived the life of a chicken with limitations, and eventually died as a chicken without spreading his wings and gliding high up in the skies. There exists a great comparison between the eagle’s story and our reality.
When we are born as human beings, and as we grow up in the company of other humans, we do what most people do and live an ordinary existence like the majority.
When we see some eagles(successful people) rising high above others, we are greatly impressed with their achievements and believe they’re the lucky or chosen ones, while we are born to struggle and suffer like the masses.
Not realizing that we too have the seed to become successful, we live the life of an ordinary human being with limitations, and eventually, die as an ordinary person without exploring our talents and soaring high up in life.
If you will think of yourself as only a human being, that would be equivalent to the eagle thinking of itself to be a chicken. The truth is, you are the spirit inside this human body with the power to rise and soar as high you may possibly envision.
There are no limitations on you, except those that are self-imposed. The biggest limitation which the majority impose upon themselves is the state and condition of the body they live in.
If the organs inside you function in a limitless and optimum manner as they are programmed to, only then, can you too function in a similar manner?
If the organs are not working right, it could very well mean that the body is corrupted with the wrong elements. Then, only corrupt or wrong actions can happen through such a body. For thousands of years, corruption has been an integral part of human nature.
It has become like a plague or virus that has penetrated every segment of our behavior and societies. Have you ever wondered why? In various scriptures, the flesh has been referred to as evil, weak, corrupt.
Anything that becomes corrupt will emit corrupt vibrations, which will eventually corrupt and weaken the system it controls. You don’t need to know any rocket science to understand this simple theory.
If the vehicle through which we operate, the human body, is corrupted, it is obvious that all organs, cells, and flesh, which are part of it, will become corrupted too. The only way to rid flesh of such impurities is to rid the body of all corrupted forces.
Corruption in the world today is generally defined in various ways, which include: stealing, embezzlement, fraud, bribery, and a most modern and dignified word-lobbying. Each of these acts is corrupt in nature and is generally related to the misuse of public authority by politicians and people holding positions of power.
When you vote people into offices to run the affairs of your city or nation, the biggest complaint we have is that most officials become corrupt. Then, they perform corrupt actions to gain personal benefits or favor a certain elite segment of the community at the expense of. the common man.
