The Many Aspects of Prayer - Part 4
Here William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, talks about miraculous healings. In the first question, the questioner is referring to an incident from the life of Jesus.
Questioner: The woman that had the issue of blood for so many years and had such a strong belief that if she touched Jesus's robe she would be healed, and according to what we are told when she touched His robe, He felt the energy flow forth from Him and she was healed. I have a few problems because she believed so strongly and was healed, and yet I do understand and follow what you are telling us?
The Council: Well, when individuals bring their consciousness up to the quality that Jesus Christ had such things will be very commonplace. Now, that does not mean that instantaneous healings cannot take place now or that they do not take place. There you are talking about a dynamic situation that is brought about for a purpose far beyond the healing of just one individual. Now, it is true that each of you can muster such power, but what will you really learn from such activities? At first, you will be astounded, amazed, and possibly you will go beyond that point and become more aware of what is really in process. In most cases, one will go from being astounded and amazed to boredom at such commonplace activities or else become so involved in the dynamics of the situation or the phenomena itself that they will go on a very dangerous ego trip. They may even go to the point of becoming involved with spiritual egotism which is an extremely dangerous trap. It is far better for the average individual to undergo a healing gradually than to be a part of a miraculous healing; one has time to digest the activities involved with a slower healing or a more normal healing. Again, this is not to say that you should not expect a miraculous healing or a dynamic event. That is part of your right and that is part of your obligation, but because it does not come you should not lose faith. Does that answer the question?
Questioner: Yes, thank you.
The Council: Remember, instantaneous healings are signs to open eyes that have been closed. Once the eyes are opened then the real work must begin. Far too often though the eyes are simply reclosed, never to have the opportunity to open again.
True miraculous healings, now we are speaking of the true miraculous healing, not some showmanship trickery that is often pulled or some temporary hysteria, but we are talking about the full-fledged healing that can be truly documented. It is simply that an individual has taken on an illness, for whatever reason, and has determined that at a particular time and in a particular way that illness will leave, even though it may not leave according to what man thinks the natural laws of it leaving would be. Do you understand?
The Council: One can, and again, one can in mid-life, in mid-sickness, experience a true miraculous healing. Did this come unexpectedly? Is this something that just happened at that time? No, no, no. Life, your life, is not a matter of chance. It did not just happen. It was to happen by your own personal design and choice. Does that answer the question?
Questioner: Yes. I am sorry. Everything you say tonight makes more questions for me.
The Council: Very well. We have all the time in eternity. That is the purpose of these get-togethers. To answer questions.
Questioner: If you are saying that miracle healings do happen and they are predetermined by our plan, more or less, that it is not an accident, would our plan ever be that we would have some terrible disease and go through a miraculous cure strictly to praise or glorify God, that would be our sole idea or to bring other people to God? Would that ever be a reason?
The Council: Yes, that could be one of many, many reasons. You can bring glory to our Creator, to our God, in many ways, as a witness or a testimony through a miracle or as a show of your inner potential.
