This is one of my projects; it is such a broad field that I seem never to run out of ideas here.
Although I often wondered how I keep things functioning and running smoothly in the castle, I've stopped questioning these things in life. There are no answers to how and why these things happen, and anyway that is not what is important. What is important is to trust, to have faith and to carry on. And perhaps one day, maybe many years in the future, we will be lucky enough to realize that if this or that has not happened then, this or that could not have happened now. In short that everything that happens to us, good or bad, does for a reason - and has some consequence on some part of our life. Sometimes I still have doubts about the Healing Castle, but my confidence seems to overcome these doubts.
When we are confronted by the material things in our lives, our head seem to turn and play games with our ego. "To serve the people": this may sounds strange to some, but this short sentence summarizes our purpose. We were generally so busy with "self discovery" - whatever this may mean - that we forget why we were here at all.
One should open one's eyes to others and extend a helping hand, instead of being caught of up in one's own problems: this puts our worries into perspective. It helps relieve our own burdens. My life experience has taught me that everyone has their own cross to bear - be it illness, loss, distress or the like. However, each of us can give so much: all it needs is a small smile to start.
