The Fool in the flower
In my view, homeopathy is a philosophy, inseparable from a working knowledge of Karma: the Law of cyclic action and return. This Law works through the seasons, the centuries and our daily selves.
To understand homeopathy, we need to think outside the box of tick tock time and into Kairos, depth. The homeopathic principle is a mandala, All-Present.
In the “sixth sense” of his healing ministry, Jesus struck at the root of the miasms in his day. Homeopathic practitioners recognize these as conditions we inherit and build up by subconscious resonance. The law of action and rebound prevails through generations and through incarnations, and often baffles modern medics. A symptom may reflect in a polar-opposite way, a hidden previous life in the collective memory, which cannot be accounted for in the present one. Equally, an unexplained self-healing may occur from that source; or even from a green fig’s future ripeness.
“The Principles and Art of Cure by Homeopathy” by Herbert A Roberts, lists at least six principle miasms in our society:
psora – desire to live. Conditions such as psoriasis, overheated blood, adrenal rush and imbalance. This includes the opposite: inertia, depression, fatigue.
syphilitic – self destruct, around love, and destroying the capacity to love oneself. Addiction, boils, eruptions, eczema, bone degeneration.
psychosis/gonorrheal – split between head and heart, or I-ness and Am-ness: loggerheads, manias, mood swings.
tubercular – mother cow, milk, respiratory problems. Sacred cows and superstition. The relationship to our own mothers, the maternal principle and earth.
carcinoma – Alienation from the natural environment, and from parts of ourselves. Vulnerable to ancestral and system imbalances and their bankruptcy. In allopathic cancer treatment, one virus is set to combat the other virus: a mere exchange of hostilities.
immune deficiency – AIDS, ME. The planet ecology is compromised, which afflicts ourselves. Alienation from the natural order weakens the strain, and so does “genetic engineering” in the plant and animal kingdom.
Deliverance: JHShVH – “Jah Liberates”
When a schizophrenic splits apart, the aura opens for another energy to enter it.
When Jesus was at work in Galilee, the schizophrenia miasm was all over the place; but he as the Son of Man was more so. When he said “offer the other cheek” he taught a spiritual judo or martial art – let the miasm cast itself out by destabilizing it, as you – the personal ego – step aside. The power of the Logos “throws” an opponent over your shoulder through space and into perdition. The Name vibrated enough authority for his disciples to do the same. Extreme psychoses of the schizophrenia miasm – possessions, walk-ins, dibbuks and hysterias – were rampant in those times, as in ours – our fascination with sociopathic horror and the supernatural. Down the centuries, the Church as it gained power and wealth, did all it could to burn out and suppress them; the same dibbuks re-surface to this day, in more materialistic forms. Repression and cruelty fed them.
The homeopathic principle abides. We cannot “medicate” an invading force in any way reliably. But with the greater power which is Consciousness, we can turn to face its nature as it afflicts ourselves. It is like turning to face the wind. In the same manner, Jesus allowed the dibbuk to blow straight through him and out. The confrontation – in any difficult and painful detail of life – is aware. It changes the particles. The healer stands near, to hear. When we are by ourselves, and need inner strength, it is like standingunder the waterfall.
It is my observation – as I am not a practitioner – that the broad homeopathic principle runs through other forms of healing – Tao, ayurveda, acupuncture, dream-work, black box telepathy, counselling, ad infinitum.
Homeopathic healing comes under Solomon’s six petalled lily. “Similia similibus curantur” – by establishing an astral contact between the sufferer and the remedy, homeopathy treats a symptom with a dose of “what it is like“; for as above so below, the ascending and descending triangles reflect each other.
Our life’s molecular chemistry forms binaries and compounds – the notion of separateness. Atomic particles on the other hand, are “of the One”. They develop individual character when they clump by number into molecules. On the extended Tree of Life in Kabbalah practice, the atoms are Beriah (Creation) and the molecules are Yetzirah, entering forms.
For more information on the Four Worlds of Jacobs Ladder, see Halevi, Kabbalahsociety.
Homeopathy dilutes a poison until it is more “atomic” than “molecular”. From subatomic Oneness, the same poison becomes a remedy, whose pure potency drives out its own symptom in the physical world. Homeopathy addresses “the invisibles`’ and treats beyond the surface … the Face before we were born.
As in all forms of healing – including allopathic – the process is two-way. It works through a bond of trust between practitioner and patient, established subconsciously, and calling on the cosmic Will-to-good. All healers pick up the voltage of the Father or the Mother – a higher “divine” frequency. Jesus’s ministry amplified and earthed it: “Not I but my Father speaks through me. Go in peace, your faith has healed you.”
These words when I stop with them, are extraordinarily beautiful. They ring out here and now, as they did 2,000 years ago. A healer/therapist worth her salt, learns to discard the delusion that he or she is the doer.
The miasms are living installations in our general landscape. Holistic and conventional medicine each have strengths and limitations. They work best together by mutual referral, according to the case. Naturopathy and holistic medicine cannot perform surgery or cure a toothache, but it goes to the root, and can take a long time. Allopathic medicine and psychotherapy can successfully alleviate symptoms and establish a more hygienic life style, but do not reach the underlying causes for un-named grief and fear in the human race.

We each hold humanity’s entire history in our DNA, and may be susceptible to one or more of these collective conditions. The miasm underlies a host of symptoms and states – physical and psychological – of fatigue, unease and deprivation.
The contemporary AIDS miasm is immune deficiency. Not only ourselves individually, but the planet as a whole suffers a current decline of the immune shield. The holes that open in our “firewall” emphasize an increased vulnerability to anxieties and cancers of all kinds, and to illnesses relating to addiction. Cancers seem to thrive on a “voltage overload” between our subtle and physical sheaths – an input/output imbalance. Where neural transmission is poorly regulated through the energy field, an over-compensation or excess may build up: a culture for toxic dictatorship, as in the political sphere. It is no different from the economy and the banks. In the biosphere, our interaction with environment is under affliction; a collective anxiety and lack of strength. Each nation as a body suffers its own disability to regulate the economy concertedly.
At the same time, the condition is generational, part of an evolutionary curve. As seed to the ground, and chrysalis to butterfly, It is inevitable that for new growth to occur, older systems and their worldview break down. The new cannot be predicated from within the old ways of thinking. The homeopathic quantum is minute, being of the other dimension. As Consciousness, the tiniest portion is equal to the sum of the mass.

Reflecting on: “What am I here to heal, in myself? What have I taken on?” throws light on afflictions, emotional and physical, which otherwise make no sense, and helps to clear them. The miasms – the Karmas coming forth, collectively or individually – have one agenda: to become conscious, and find release. All the demons in the Yoga Vasishta ultimately become Divine. As Ramana Maharshi used to say: “It is its nature to come up.” So long as a condition or dis-ease remains unconscious, its pressure will recycle through the generations.
Karma means “action” – and action upon reaction. Each one of us has the capacity to act – to become more conscious and to hear ourselves, as we would a troubled friend. It is helpful to identify “where it hurts” close to home. Otherwise, we are magnetized to events “out there” which we have no power to alter, which deplete us; and avoid relationship.
“Avoiding relationship?” is a question Baba Free John used to ask himself, and it is a good one.
The following extracts are from my essay – “What is Karma?”. Broad principles pictured, can alter the mindset of a problem: the idea of gaining altitude. Our subconscious is stubborn against the wordy faith, but responds to images.

What is Karma? Why do we have acute pains of life?
The literal translation of Karma is “action”. Karma, the law of cause and effect, seeks equilibrium. We observe it throughout nature, in the weathers and elements, as well as experientially. To gain some insight, we need altitude. From inside the corner grocer shop, or The Vic in East Enders, I cannot see the city. As I rise higher, the street plan, the river, the Dome and a host of interconnected neighbourhoods come into perspective. Perceiving my life’s thread within that overview, I receive and hear likewise a brother or sister’s enigma, even a nation. Compassion encompasses our myrad lifetimes. It does not react from, attach to, or try to “fix it” until it has received sufficient information.
This takes time, as a fruit will ripen in due season. It takes time and space to truly love ourselves. To love another, gives space to allow them to be who they are. To love unconditionally is to receive his or her humanity fully – but with clarity, not as a doormat. “Keep practicing”. “Let go, let God.” Let the wheel turn unobstructedly.
Karma is the eco-system of the human psyche. It interlaces our soul Laws and social structure, like the web of root systems and nitrates throughout the biosphere. Collective racial Karmas have a distinct character, like a rock, a vineyard, or a wood of tall beech stems and connecting fibres. Tribal, ancestral and creative Karmas arise, settle, change and decay: as do Karmas of the workplace, of families working out patterns of abuse, and of towns. From an airplane we see the pattern of fields and cities move slowly past, and apprehend the actual stress of landing into life.

Karma is a force seeking consciousness. It has an urgency to transform – it is blind and tries to see. It repeats until a tendency is recognized, regenerated and freed. That means not acting from it, but “taking responsibility” for the way it feels – especially in our given relationships. The force of Karma moves through human rivers as the current, eroding the banks and creating whirlpools, rapids and still waters. The Tree of Life is just one of various working tools to reclaim the unconscious swamp, and heal the root miasms. It is for us, a universal challenge to inherit human awareness – “I am receiving the full dose of being abandoned or rejected or hurt, which I gave” – and to grow up: to forgive, and be forgiven.
Though we do not reincarnate as the same individual, the soul Law propels the recycling of a memory into renewed forms of expression.
The Theosophists’ theory of the human root races is based on the same general principle. A new “root race” is established in the decaying of the old. We can observe the evolutionary process anywhere in nature. The tree each spring puts out the same leaf, but different ones.
Yeshua ben Miriam
Collective and personal Karmas are a multidimensional web of cross-currents. Karma is an unbounded watery surface moved by the wind; the warp and weft from every direction. Some actions generate lifetimes of harmony; other wave-trains recreate havoc. The chaos seems eternal – thus the punitive old doctrines of Hell – but is temporal, a matter of voluntary adjustment from within. The key to Karma is transformation; for no act of cruelty can stand, if understood.

As we are pulled through aeons of fire, rock and ice, the divine atoms of our human birth awaken in the plane of Middle-Earth. Our evolution is in the marrow of our bones, and easily eludes analysis. There is a word for our entirety: ruach – the Divine breath, breathing us, en sof, without end.
