Healer, she said, please take away my grief.
I cannot, he replied.
It is grief that reminds us of our humanity.
Healer, please remove my sadness.
It is the valleys that give rise to the mountains.
Healer, please chase away my fear.
It is fear that enables us to cultivate faith.
Healer, please eradicate my anger.
It is anger that we must learn to turn into compassion.
Healer, please cure my pain.
It is pain that remind us of the joy of being alive.
Healer, if you cannot do any of these, what can you do?
I can hold space,
I can support,
I can inspire,
I can empower you to become your own healer.
