Healing Myself - 8. Layers of Onion

8. Layers of Onion

In the past decade, when I was experimenting with several healing techniques; so often I would feel that I have forgiven, I have let go, I have healed and I would feel peaceful and joyous.... until something would trigger the sadness all over again, and I would feel very much back to square one. However, my experimentation would still continue with regards to practising gratitude, forgiveness, kindness, generosity, positive affirmation, meditations etc.

It was only George who made me see how far I had come from the fearful, tearful, depressed person. He brought a new insight into my mind by explaining what his teacher had explained to him. George told me that pain/sadness is just like the layers of an onion. When sadness attacks, you work on it, this means you have pealed off a layer. Next time, when pain is triggerred, you further work on yourself, until you realise that as you are pealing off layer by layer of sadness, you are healing by going deeper into yourself and tackling your issues at a deeper level each time. Also, the more layers that are pealed off, more healing is experienced. When all layers have been pealed off of an onion, nothing remains. That nothingness is complete healing.

I then had a realisation that even healing techniques have layers. Someone I thought I had forgiven, another time I would need to go back into my heart and forgive same person at a deeper level. I felt the same about gratitude; that it too has layers. At the begining gratitude was speaking the words of thanks, then it progressed to feeling gratitude, another time stronger gratitude. Now, sometimes, the gratitude overwhelms my heart so much that I can simply cry, just in the joy of being grateful. Even surrendor has layers. One might feel one has surrendered, then a newer experience/insight might take one to a deeper level of surrendor.

What is important is to keep on working on gratitude, forgiveness, kindness, generosity, positive affirmations, meditations, living in the NOW etc. And every new insight will bring the peace and joy not felt with the acquisition of materialic possesstions. When you perform an act of kindness or generosity for someone, and simply walk away, without feeling the need for recognition, you will feel great inner connectedness with that person. When you show care and respect for plants, animals, inanimate objects in your surroundings, you will know that you and him/her/it are one. You have now reached a level of ONENESS...which of course is another journey of several layers... Yes, I will keep on peeling off the layers, and one day plunge into the nothingness. That day the complete healing will have taken place, and I shall have attained pure freedom.
