Is it helpful to focus on "healing"?

The concept of healing cannot exist without the idea of the past combined with identification with an "at effect" mental position with past events.

Since the language we use shapes our model of the world, and about ourselves and others, let’s willingly get stuck on the level of words for a moment.
There is everyday healing, from mental and emotional loads, to cleanse our mind and body from external and internal stimuli, thought forms and reactionary cravings. It is a wonderful thing to bring awareness to “unloading”.
On the other hand, there is to heal “from an experience”, or healing “from the past”, presupposing there is a place of significance in the past, where originated the gap between the “less-than-whole” self and the “whole” self.
In other words, to “heal” requires us to first come from a place of “lack”, and through the process of healing, return to wholeness – some form of destination or endpoint to get to. All forms of healing are rooted in acceptance, accepting the totality of life, recognizing the seemingly undesirable life situations are all part of a non-dualisitc cosmic dance. Therefore, less-than-ness can only be created through perceived “shouldn’t be”s, discrepancies from comparison between “what is” and “what I think would be favourable to my manifested forms”.
If we can go beyond the illusory sense of self identified through past conditioning and events, and just be present, there is nothing to do, nowhere to be, no destinations to get to or achieve. There is nothing to overcome to get to the other side to resume our wholeness – it is an uncaused default state of beingness. Allow connection to the profound knowingness of our infinite, all-encompassing present being, then just learn and grow, from and be here now.
