This is a theme of this website and a most important idea.
WHY DOES LOVE ALONE HEAL?
The reason is that in order to overcome or transcend any problem of any kind, in the body or elsewhere, one must first allow and embrace the problem. This is a loving approach to solving problems of all kinds.
This does not mean that you will be stuck with the problem or condition forever, as some believe. In fact, this is the only way “through” the issue. It reminds me of a Rolfer who explained to me that when he dug his elbow into my back, I should not fight the pain, but instead attempt to allow and embrace it, and in this way I would transcend it.
The opposite approach. Often, people think that by rejecting parts of themselves or their life that they don’t like, that these rejected aspects or incidents will go away. This is sometimes called “positive thinking”, although it is no such thing. It is really just simple denial and projection.
By the way, there is a time for such thinking. This is when one is deeply caught in negative thinking so that one can hardly function.
In this case, what may seem like denial is not really that. Instead, it is an attempt to balance the negative thinking with thoughts that are more positive and real.
This is fine for an emergency, but one must also allow and embrace negative thoughts in order to get to ranscend them. The pulling Down Procedure helps one do this much more easily.
TO WHICH SITUATION DOES THIS APPLY?
In short, to everything. This is a key. If you have a weak stomach or liver, allow it, be with it and embrace it.
If you feel sad, allow it, rather than fight it all the time. If you are shy or awkward around people or if you don’t think too well, allow it and embrace it. This just means let it get close to you. Do not fear these things, although that is an understandable response.
This is how one can really love the self, a related theme. Otherwise, one rejects parts of oneself, and it is like rejecting one of your hands or one of your feet. It cripples you and interferes with all aspects of your life.
Projection also causes other problems for all of us because our rejected thoughts, emotions and other problems such as violence and hatred are picked up by other weaker souls who may act them out.
