Be the Change You Wish to See

A personal healing reference to Mahatma Gandhi‘s quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world” is the metaphorical process of transformation of a cancer survivor from a cocoon to a butterfly by Qi cultivation using Qigong and herbs.

The following write-up will provide the answer.

One of the founders of the Cancer Recovery Society in China, told this story during a lecture about the use of Qigong for recovery from cancer and other diseases:

“When people are diagnosed with a life-threatening disease they are often exhausted in body, mind, and spirit. It is as if they are forced to crawl slowly and begin to think of their world as a terribly limited place and their experience of life as scary and depressing. I liken this to the body level of the Three Treasures – Jing, Qi and Shen, the stage of the caterpillar. At this level we are simply looking for a way to survive. We focus on the body, the most limited aspect of ourselves. When we start to do Qigong (and take herbs) we begin to change because we get a sense that our self is not limited. The simple practice of Qigong (and taking herbs) begins a process in the body that is wonderfully healing. The pressure of the experience of the disease plus the support of Qigong friends creates the permission to take on the challenge of becoming a new person.

The caterpillar uses the Qi to spin a cocoon. In our group work with Qigong (and taking herbs) we use the building up of the Qi to create the safety and courage to be reborn. This is our cocoon. We meet to do our practice of Qigong and we have tea and discussion afterward that we call social oncology. You know that when the caterpillar is in the cocoon, its former self is transformed to a new being. In our process of recovery from disease, we often explore uncomfortable things about our lives, talk about things we have kept hidden, and improve our sense of humor. Through this transformational process we create a new self. Just as the caterpillar constructs a cocoon to become a butterfly.

Eventually, we emerge with wings to fly. Many in the Qigong groups recover their health and are reborn as new people who have a completely different attitude about life. Some of our members do not recover but through the Qigong process and group support they become butterflies too, and fly free in a different way. The goal in our work is not just to cure diseases, but to heal. Sometimes healing does not accomplish a cure. But still the person is like a butterfly because he or she has the love of the Qigong group to support a needed transformation. Through Qigong and the love and support of our friends, we gain the courage to transform from a caterpillar, to enter the cocoon and be liberated as a butterfly.”

The best answer for what to expect in Qigong (and taking herbs) is to have no expectations. If your mind is crowded with expectations, it cannot be free to perceive what else is really there. In reality, one can learn Qigong from a mentor who is someone who agrees to foster your growth and learning.

Most forms of Qigong have a broad range of benefits and it is through regular practice that one will gain from it. When you discover the Qi, watch it, and cultivate it, let it teach you and you will learn something everyday. Just like sunflowers that come from one seed and create hundreds of seeds that then create hundreds of sunflowers that create thousands of seeds – through your expanded awareness and your practice, your Yuan Qi will multiply.

The eight extraordinary channels are one of the most fascinating aspects of the acupuncture channel system. These channels are the bridge between prenatal and postnatal influences in our life. The eight extraordinary channel’s terrain is Jing, essence, and source Qi. These channels influence the yuan, or deep layers of our body, mind and spirit.

The pathways of the eight extraordinary meridians are rooted in the Lower Dantian / Mingmen.

Another way to be the change you wish to see is to transform yourself spiritually via the Baha’i faith founded by Baha’ullah as shown in the following:

Baha’i teachings state that there is no such physical place as heaven or hell, and emphasize the eternal journey of the soul towards oneness with God. They explain that references to “heaven” and “hell” in the Holy Scriptures of other religions are to be understood symbolically, describing states of nearness to and distance from God in this world and in the realms beyond. When we die, the condition of our souls determines our experience of the afterlife.

Heaven and hell are conditions within our own being. – Shoghi Effendi, Lights of Guidance, p. 209

The essence of all the prophets of God is one and the same. – Baha’ullah

Meditation is the key for opening the doors of mysteries. – Abdul’Baha

Man, in reality, is a spiritual being, and only when he lives in the spirit is he truly happy. – Baha’i Writings

And with Thy love in my heart all the world’s afflictions can in no wise alarm me. – Baha’ullah

About the Baha’i Faith

“The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.” – Baha’ullah

In just over one hundred years the Baha’i Faith has grown from an obscure movement in the Middle East to the second most widespread world religion after Christianity. With some 8 million adherents in virtually every corner of the globe – including people from every nation, ethnic group. culture, profession, and social or economic class – it is probably the most diverse organized body of people on the planet today.

About Baha’u’llah

Its founder, Baha’ullah, taught that there is one God, Who progressively reveals His Will to humanity. Each of the great religions brought by the Messengers of God – Abraham and Moses, Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster, Jesus, Muhammad, the Bab – represents a successive stage in the spiritual development of the human race. Baha’ullah, the most recent Messenger in this line, has brought teachings that address the moral and spiritual challenges of today’s world.

The Baha’i Faith teaches that there is only one human race and that religion should be a source of unity; condemns all forms of prejudice and racism; upholds the equality of women and men; confirms the importance and value of marriage and the family; establishes the need for the independent investigation of the truth; insists on access to education for all; asserts the essential harmony between science and religion; declares the need to eliminate extremes of wealth and poverty; and exalts work done in a spirit of service to the level of worship.

Baha’is believe that religion should be a dynamic force that raises the individual, family, and community to new spiritual heights. To this end Baha’is all around the world work to create an atmosphere of love and unity in their own lives, in their families, and in their communities.
