I will go either way.” I was awakened in the middle of that night to find my mind full of thoughts about healing, and how wonderful it is to be able to serve other people that way. I remember thinking, “Well yes, that’s true, but this other direction is good, too….” I had this experience 3 times that night. I woke up 3 times, and each time my mind was full of these “warm fuzzy feelings” about going into the healing arts. Nevertheless, I wasn’t convinced. (Do I seem a bit thick headed to you?)

If we are sewing up an injury, if we are helping someone who is disabled, if we are healing someone who is in need of healing, we are doing a sacred thing.
