Importance of addressing the root of the problem

Several years ago I was injured and was in pain, and maybe about 20 different local practitioners could not help me. I finally went to a lomilomi person and she worked on me and got rid of the pain in about 20 minutes. I lived happily ever after, but I needed to keep on stretching.

Well, I didn't stretch and it came back 100 times worse. It was a good lesson - to see that the root of the problem wasn't addressed so the problem was always there, covered. I just didn't have the pain symptoms, that's all. It was a volcano waiting to erupt.

So, good bodywork should address the root. Otherwise, it is just a cosmetic bandaid.

When roots are addressed, it is very deep work. Only a healer can tackle that. Also, the client needs to be ready for Inner Work. When roots are addressed, the work is very deep and there are profound life changes. That is what pain and symptoms are asking for - for deep and profound life changes.

Yes sure we can gloss it over, aren't we good at it. And yet, it is a strategy that completely backfires, it is buy-now-pay-later strategy, and the interest is VERY high.

Seeing the root of the problem

Talking to others sometimes is helpful and sometimes isn't. Or both. For example, after talking with Rick Jarrow, he said things that I already know, and then he gave me the comment about complaining, and he had no idea where it was coming from and where I should look. It is like someone telling you something but without any pointers. He said: the sky is blue, but he had no idea why, and no idea where to start finding the answer. He simply didn't know, he is not of that caliber.

Someone of high caliber is very helpful, to tell us what they observe.

I was thinking - me telling the Born Again "christian" that his belief system was the wrong foundation for his whole life was that kind of observation, something very useful and the root of the problem. Being able to see the root of the problem is the ability of a healer. Or anyone smart - business people see the root of the problem in business, etc.

I wish someone would tell me just like that, would point out to me the root of my problems, show me where I am a "born again christian" and completely gone off the path to God.

Seems like I don't have such resources locally, so I will have to be catching it myself. However, the problem is that we never can catch ourselves in things that are so ingrained that we don't see them anymore. We need help of someone objective, observing from the side. I do that for other people. Who will do that for me?.... hm....
