TO BE A HEALER

And what does it mean to be a healer? I asked. And a wise old person stepped forward. To be a healer, she said, is to be given a second heart. It is to care so deeply that you show your ache in person. To be a healer is to be unashamed of tears. It is to be well, and broken, and built up all in the same moment. Blessed are you if you can heal others with a heart that feels, With a heart that hurts, with a heart that loves. And blessed are you if you can heal others with a heart that serves and a heart that sees the need before it’s spoken. To be a healer is to forget yourself for a moment and get lost in someone else’s pain and then to find yourself in the very act of getting lost. To be a healer is to be an expert in the miracle of being careful with another’s pain. It is to be full of the willingness of forever reaching out to and picking up and holding carefully those who hurt. To be a healer is to sing with the dying and to be healed by the song and the death.
