Grace: The final frontier

Standard

The knowing smile of a meditating yogi. The sparkle in the eye of a seeker who has reclaimed her prize. The loving touch of one who has tasted God’s love. These are the external signs of a person who is under the influence of Grace. Grace is considered the fifth universal principle after creation, sustenance, dissolution, and delusion. Grace reveals everything to you. It is the action that pours from your “inner guru”, your inner teacher. Every time you come to understand something, it is through grace that you understand. When you finally learned to read, do math, play an instrument, or accomplish an advanced posture in yoga it was grace that allowed you to be in a space of knowing and understanding. When you realized that listening is more important than speaking, it was grace that lead you to this deeper understanding. It is the same when we apply the power of grace to our “spiritual” practice and understanding. How deeply you drink from the Source and understand is dependent on how completely you surrender to the process of grace in your life. Grace leads to revelation. It leads to revelation of what is good and bad for you, revelation as to what you need in life, and revelation about how you should live your life. This all happens from within.

Grace is an inner phenomenon. It only happens when you look within yourself and question your actions and mental proclivities. It happens as a response to your desire to surrender to Life Itself. Grace is what carries your from the state of ignorance to the state of knowledge. Grace is always given freely and always frees you from your own trappings.

Dr. Zorn is a licensed Naturopathic Physician in the beautiful state of Oregon. He received his Bachelors degree of Science from the State University of New York at Purchase in 1998. He then went on to receive his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from the accredited naturopathic medicine program at NCNM in 2002. By the end of his first year at NCNM he knew that homeopathy was going to be a large part of his practice. Since graduating he has maintained a private practice and over the last several years he has taught classes on homeopathy to graduate students and colleagues. Dr. Zorn has used homeopathy in his practice to help his patients with a wide range of maladies including eczema, asthma, anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, arthritis, etc. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that recognizes the inherent Spirit of the individual as the source of health and wellbeing. Dr Zorn currently teaches a weekly meditation/self-awareness class at the Vancouver Yoga Center and has helped teach sections of an Anasara Yoga Teacher Training Program. As a perpetual student of medicine, healing, life, and human nature he tries to learn from all life experiences. Striving to broaden his understanding of homeopathy and this phenomenon we call the human experience, he has studied the works of all great teachers, philosophies, and religions. Of greatest interest to him is the practice of Meditation. He has held a meditative practice over the last 17 years, and has learned more in the depths of stillness than all of his hours of reading.
