Reclaiming Your Forgotten Healing Garden

by Ada Porat

We are a mysterious species of extremes and contradictions. It has been said that we are capable of dreaming the most beautiful dreams while harboring the darkest nightmares.

In the last 100 years we have mastered the secrets of matter, conception, life and death. We are capable of redesigning our genetic code, customizing weather patterns and creating new forms of life – powers historically left to God and nature.

And yet, the irony is that despite miraculous technologies, families are still destroyed by reventable disease, malnutrition, and epidemics. Despite the most sophisticated understanding of peace, we still perpetrate the horrors of war, induced famine and senseless acts of hate.

We may discover that it is precisely the context of these extremes that compels us to search for unity in our world and to find a sense of meaning. We are yearning for a deeper understanding of life and the part we have come to play in it.

This search for meaning draws us inward, away from the hustle and bustle of external life.  Once we start the journey to find truth within, miracles can start to unfold.  The secrets of living a meaningful life are indeed hidden in the heart, where they often lie forgotten, like an abandoned garden waiting to be rediscovered.

By doing the work of reclaiming the inner beauty of that forgotten garden, peace is restored within us.  And as we start making peace with ourselves, our external conflicts shift as well.  As we change our inner perspective on life, the things around us change as well. As Wayne Dyer says, when we change the way we look at things, the things we look at, change!

The Creator appointed human beings as custodians of this beautiful planet. In each of us resides the power to create our world as an abundant garden, lush and beautiful. 

We can – and must – indeed reach out to bring healing to the Earth.

Like a journey of a thousand miles, the first step starts within each one of us.  The Hermetic teachings of Thoth show how the nature of the Divine is reflected in everything: as above, so below; and as within, so without.  As we reclaim our connection to the Divine, the effects will radiate out from us to benefit Mother Earth as well. What a great incentive for doing our inner work.

  1. So very True… we each of us have to start and treat Mother Earth with more respect and live within the codes of harmony and nature that the Divine built within each of us.. We are all of us encoded with the keys to survive and grow.. We are ALL of us part of Gods Healing Garden here on Earth.. and we have to start and heal ourselves from within… Heal and nurture our own garden within our selves first and formost.. Tend if you like our own back yard….
    To change the world we need to help society and as WE are all part of society we need to change our self.. our thoughts our behaviours.. our actions… only then can we spread the ripples out ..
