THE HEALING DOCTOR

August 1, 2001



Once there was a very good Doctor who was famous for his wonderful ability to diagnose whatever his patients had and what medicine to give them to heal them. From all over people came to him for this wonderful ability of his, until one day a patient walked in and the doctor, much to his distress, could not tell what this patient was suffering from and how to treat him.

Desperate the doctor asked this patient to wait for him and ran out to his spiritual master. He told his spiritual master what had just happened to him and asked for advice.

"You have nothing to worry about" - said the master, "You just have developed to another level and now you do not need anymore to know what your patient is suffering from. All you need to do is to put your hand on your patients and they will heal!"

The doctor ran back home, put his hands on the patient who waited for him, and indeed the patient got healed.

In the following years, sick people came from all over the world and the doctor put his hands on them and they got cured. The doctor got rich and happy until one day a patient came in, the doctor put his hands on him and nothing happened.

Again the doctor ran to his spiritual master, told him what have happened and asked for his advice.

"You have nothing to worry about" - said the master, "You just have developed to another level and now you do not need anymore to put your hands on your patients in order to heal them. All you need to do is to look straight into your patients'eyes and they will heal!"

The doctor ran back home, looked straight into the patient's eyes, and indeed the patient got healed.

In the following years, sick people came from all over the world and the doctor looked straight into their eyes and they got cured. The doctor got richer and happier until one day a patient came in, the doctor looked straight into his eyes and nothing happened.

Again the doctor ran to his spiritual master, told him what had happened and asked for his advice.

"You have nothing to worry about" - said the master, "You just have developed to another level and now you do not need anymore to look straight into your patients' eyes in order to heal them. All you need to do now is to sit calmly in the beautiful home that you have built for yourself and open up to get thoughts of people who need your help, think about them and they will heal!"

In the following years the doctor would sit every day in his beautiful working room and open himself up to get thoughts of sick people from all over the world who needed his help, and he thought about them and they got cured. The doctor didn't get money for that, but by now he didn't need the money and he was happy to be able to help so many people, until one day while he was sitting in his room, nothing happened. He could not get a single thought from anyone.

Again the doctor ran to his spiritual master, told him what have happened and asked "And what level is it now?"

"You have nothing to worry about" - said the master, "You just have developed to the highest level, you are now cured yourself and you do not need to heal anyone anymore."
