I was speaking to a friend yesterday about humanity as a whole, and I felt like sharing with you all here, some of that which I told this person (rephrased): While we as healers can't take the burden of the whole of humanity on our shoulders, we help one person at a time to find the truth within themselves.
It is one thing to come to a counsellor and vent out your problems to feel better. That is healing too.
BUT, it is another, more difficult feat to watch oneself through the weeks of counselling. We have 50,000-60,000 thoughts in a day. For a client to watch many of these thoughts and realize how judgemental, needy and victimizing these thoughts are, to look at oneself in the mirror and realize how they have been contributing to the negativity in their lives, to accept themselves as they are with these thoughts, to resolve to change themselves in the face of all this, and finally to work at maintaining that change.
And THIS is why I have a deep sense of respect for my clients. Sometimes more than the everyday person. Clients who come in for counseling are true warriors. They fight the most difficult battles - those within themselves.
Even if some don't win it (and the rest do) - they tried. They took that first step. Which in itself is laudable.
Thus, for all those who mock others for seeking counseling saying that they are 'mad' or 'crazy': Yes, they are mad and crazy enough to go within in a world that only emphasizes sensory pleasures. They are crazy to see that there is something beyond that which the eyes can see. They are mad enough to seek the heaven which lies within.
To my clients who walk the fire with me: I have no words to express my appreciation for you, and I can only thank you for trusting me with yourself, and it is a privilege to be on this journey with you.
