A PLEA FOR HEALING



There are moments when wellness escapes us,
moments when pain and suffering
are not dim possibilities
but all to agonizing realities.
At such moments we must open ourselves to healing.



Much we can do for ourselves;
and what we can do
we must do —
healing,
no less than illness,
is participatory.



But even when we do all we can do
there is
often,
still much left to be done.
And so we turn as well to our healers
seeking their skill to aid in our we struggle for wellness.



But even when they do all they can do
there is,
often,
still much left to be done.
And so we turn to Life,
to the vast Power of Being that animates the Universe
as the ocean animates the wave,
seeking to let go of that which blocks our healing.



May those
whose lives are gripped in the pain of suffering
open
even now
to the Wonder of Life.
May they let go of the hurt
and Meet the True Self beyond pain,
the Uncarved Block
that is our joyous Unity with Holiness.



May they discover through pain and torment
the strength to live with grace and humor.
May they discover through doubt and anguish
the strength to live with dignity and holiness.
May they discover through suffering and fear
the strength to move toward healing.

~  Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro
