Our theme this month has been the written word and as I think over this theme I am reminded of a passage I once read in a comparative religion class: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God…In him was life; and the life was the light of men…”
Now as I ponder what this could possibly mean, I come to an understanding that maybe it is the WORD that creates. Words, words, words – we use hundreds of them every day trying to communicate ideas and concepts to others – usually misunderstood because the other person always hears our words from their mind set.
Our new book, written by Debra Schildhouse called “Bio-Touch: Healing With The Power In Our Fingertips” contains many words, used to stir desire in humanity’s consciousness to want to practice Bio-Touch. The words are a way to open the possibility that we really can reclaim our birthright to be healthy, happy and loved.
But the book is still words, words, words. To practice what Henry Thoreau once wrote: “simplify, simplify, simplify,” I could take those words and put them into application.
Bio-Touch is simply taking the first two fingers of each hand and lightly touching another human. Healing just happens. There are no words needed, just an application of Love in action.
When I can see another person in their body I no longer need words, or maybe the “words” are the other body. And those words— that body—are always the same regardless of country, philosophy or status.
A great Prophet, when asked what was the greatest commandment, once said, “The 1st commandment is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy mind; and the 2nd commandment was like unto it: Love thy Neighbor as Thyself.”
So maybe, just maybe, God-Self-Neighbor are all the same. Maybe the Word made manifest is our ability to see the equality of all humanity; the ability to see ourselves in each other.
With Bio-Touch everyone gets the opportunity to experience that equality. If I just apply the simple sets of points, and not try to figure it out, I come to a self-awareness that we are all equal and that we all just want to be healthy and happy and loved.
