Forgiving and healing..an intrinsic connection


sundara veerraju

(An attempt made by me to imitate the great genius Picasso)

It is very important to forgive ourselves and others for the healing process to start.The karmic link between both the parties is cut off after complete forgiveness by the victim.If the victim harbors any negative impressions of the incident or the person the negative feelings like revenge and anger affect the aura of the person and that in turn affects the health of a person.The helplessness and the anger is carried to the subsequent births.This becomes a vicious cycle.The best thing would be to nip off the negative feelings when they start to develop. It is also important to forgive oneself completely.This is as important as forgiving others.

The significance of the lotus flower and some of it's medicinal properties-Part1 Spiritual significance

Lotus flower -image in the public domain

I think a lotus flower is breathtakingly beautiful .This beautiful blossom also has a lot of spiritual significance. It is very unique with it's big succulent waxy petals and seeds which resemble the spouts of a gardening can and the distinctive fragrance in the background. In almost all cultures it is a symbol of purity. It basically represents the"Ascension of man ". A segment from Madame Blavatsky's " The Secret Doctrine" rightly expresses the importance of this flower-"The Lotus-seed contains within itself a perfect miniature of the future plant, which typifies the fact that the spiritual prototypes of all things exist in the immaterial world before those things become materialised on Earth. Secondly, the fact that the Lotus plant grows up through the water, having its root in the Ilus, or mud, and spreading its flower in the air above. The Lotus thus typifies the life of man and also that of the Kosmos; for the Secret Doctrine teaches that the elements of both are


sundara veerraju
the same, and that both are developing in the same direction. The root of the Lotus sunk in the mud represents material life, the stalk passing up through the water typifies existence in the astral world, and the flower floating on the water and opening to the sky is emblematical of spiritual being" .
