It’s reasonable to want to know why things work. It’s interesting and it also helps us form opinions about what we believe in and what might work for us. Like exactly how e-mail gets into our Inbox, exactly how the television works, and how radio waves can make the radio work even though we can’t see or feel them. Can you give a detailed answer of “why” or “how” any of those things work? I can’t, but it doesn’t stop me from using them on a regular basis. I can’t explain exactly how my computer is allowing me to type up this blog entry, but I’m doing it.
Yet this is one of the biggest reasons I hear people give for not trying out energy medicine techniques. For many people, it’s just too scary to try something they don’t understand. But not being able to explain it doesn’t keep you from using other things that benefit your life. Why this?
Many people are satisfied that some technical expert understands why and how something works, so that’s good enough for them. If NO ONE understands why and how something works, well, they figure they’d better leave it alone.
But here’s the thing: Sometimes things work, but not for the reason an “expert” says they do. Our lack of understanding doesn’t keep them from working, though. I think we are often fooled into accepting explanations for things that may or may not be accurate, but it doesn’t really matter if they work. Sure, it’s interesting to know, but it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying all the health and well-being possible.
And here’s the thing that baffles me: People accept an explanation for something that seems to be invented by man, from the man that invented it. But if they can’t identify someone as the creator of it, then it must be suspect.
The law of gravity was working for about a gazillion years before Newton discussed and demonstrated and attempted to define it. And even then, Newton couldn’t accurately explain WHY it worked. Didn’t keep it from working, though, did it? Stand under the apple tree long enough and you’ll eventually get bonked on the head by an apple. But WHY?
I don’t know how God created the earth or me. But I’m here. On the earth. Every day of my life. I can see the evidence, if not the process of creation.
I can also see the evidence of energy medicine. It’s so easy. It doesn’t hurt anything to try it. If it works, great. If it doesn’t, fine, don’t do it anymore. Can you see the evidence in other people? Then try it for yourself and see if it brings you benefits.
