When I do ho’oponopono, tonglen, hold satsang with what I see in myself, others or the world, or pray for myself or others, what I do is heal my images of the world.
I invite in healing for my images of myself, others and the world.
For instance, I see what I imagine is fear in another, and hold satsang with it. You are welcome here. Thank you for protecting (me, the other). How would you like me to be with you? What would satisfy you forever? What are you really?
I find it’s already allowed (by life). I find how it comes from love, and is love. I find it’s innocence. I find that it already is Spirit.
And in that way, my images of it are healed. My images align a little closer to reality.
Note: When I hold satsang with something I see in others, and thank it for protecting, I thank it for its function of protecting me, and for its function of protecting the other person. What’s its really protecting is of course my image of myself, and it’s not even protecting it – that’s just a story.
