    masters and fools

    Masters & Fools

    William Blake said:

    “After having been a fool, a student is to amass a stock of ideas and knowing himself to be fool he is to assume the right to put other men’s ideas into his foolery. Instead of following a few great masters, he is to follow a great many fools.”

    In homoeopathy, we follow some great masters – Hahnemann and Hering, Von Boenninghausen, Kent, Clarke and Burnett, to name a few. We call them masters, because their findings and the attached doctrines, uses and their results are beneficial to our health, both mental and physical.
    They heal with the smallest of possible doses radically each and every disease, without the use of the knife or fire and perform the physician’s high and only mission – to cure the sick.

    William Blake made some more astute remarks about masters and fools.

    “Servile copying is the great merit of copying. Mechanical excellence is the only vehicle of genius. Execution of this copying is the chariot of genius. Copying correctly is the only school to the language of Art. Copy the few great masters and stop following a great many fools.”

    The Art of Healing

    The Art of Healing finds its origins in charity and therefore cannot work but by empathy and sympathy. Since the law of homoeopathy is found in the oldest religious texts of the world and because it works along the same principles of empathy and sympathy, it can be easily inferred that it is the True Divine Art of Healing. Healing then, as in to make whole and Holy, cannot come out of speculation and self-reliance – it has to follow scientific principles, just like its material counterpart. It is not that anything you try should give it to you – no imaginative process will help, whether you call them ‘affirmations’ or ‘meditations’ or in a more down to earth manner call them ‘blood values’ and ‘antibody counts’ – you better be honest enough to admit that it is imagination either way.

    Just as in any other art you first must learn the materials and the technique, so it is with the Art of Healing. It cannot be learned at university and no pope, emperor or king can confer this art or its qualifications upon the seeker. Just as there is but one Rembrandt and one Picasso and one Dali, so there are but few real Healers. And just as in the other arts, there are the assorted wannabees, the hangers-on and the charlatans. The Art comes through apprenticeship and practise, practise and more practise, in following in the footsteps of the great masters – just consider the massive oeuvre Rembrandt left and his copying of previous masters, till he found his own style. It comes from diligently treating and studying the sick, according to the rules set out by the masters.

    Healing – to make whole or Holy – involves more than a cure. A cure is more than the removal of mental, emotional and physical symptoms. The doctor – of whatever medical persuasion – generally only deals with the body, and if he is somewhat more holistic, he deals with the mind and emotions as well.
    Treating disease is not only medicine and healing, it is also and foremost spiritual practise, which includes nutrition, body care, right work, proper rest and recreation. Homoeopathy is about holistic health and happiness. Although not giving specific spiritual instructions, it exhorts mankind that the spiritual path is the greatest guarantee for long life and happiness. Any good homoeopath should also be acquainted with the spiritual practises of his patients, so he can assist them in this manner as well. For as we noted above, the Art of Healing finds its origins in Divinity and hence it must be directed there, to have the greatest efficacy.
    The Law of Similars is as old as the mountains and was reiterated for the first time in the Bhagavat Purana:

    amayā yas ca bhūtanam yayate yena suvrata
    tad eva hy āmayām dravyām na punāti cikītsitām

    ‘Oh good soul, does not a thing when applied therapeutically, cure a disease, which was caused by the very same thing?’
    (Veda-Vyasa K.D. Bhagavat Purana 1/5/33)

    The Bhagavat Purana is said to be the spotless purana. Because it does not contain any materialism in it. Hence every statement from that purana is spiritually pure. Therefore, the Healing Art described is the purest and most Divine of all.
    Now, we reiterate it again, to impress upon the reader that ‘there are more ways to skin the cat’, as the saying goes. It was subsequently reiterated by Hippocrates, Paracelsus and Hahnemann – the latter two both ridiculed and despised for their insight and wisdom – yet modern medicine discards it as antiquated, vitalist, moonshine medicine. However, we paraphrase Vyasa:

    “This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge and because it gives direct perception of the self by realisation, it is the perfection of healing. It is everlasting and joyfully performed.”
    (Veda-Vyasa K.D.)

    Homoeopathy, as the True Art of Healing, will not assimilate with the system. The mere mention of it is as nearly certainly the cause for a conventional reaction as is a glass of beer to a prohibitionist or an AA member. This reaction will be apparent from both sides, for they are wholly incompatible, having opposite principles and laws.
    Again we quote David Bohm:

    “The probability is always open that there may exist an unlimited variety of additional properties, qualities, entities, systems, levels, etc, to which apply correspondingly new kinds of laws of nature.”
    (Bohm D. Wholeness and the Implicate Order)

    It is of the ideals of science to know one thing from another before expressing an opinion on it. The medical scientists have neglected this and have gone from an assumption – bugs cause disease.
    Assumptions generally leave one open to criticism, especially when the concepts on origins are hampered by tunnel vision, rooted in the 19th Century aberration of Pasteur as we shall see. As Louis de Broglie once stated:

    “It is premature to reduce the vital process to the quite insufficiently developed conception of the 19th- and even 20th-Century chemistry and physics.”
    (De Broglie L. La Chemie Moderne)

    The theory must be repeatable by experiment to deserve to be classed as scientific. However, conjecture is the name of the game and there is no scope, nor escape for dissidence. Kent, a nineteenth century homoeopath and contemporary of Pasteur, expressed man’s preoccupation with conjecture as follows:

    ‘There is a state of insanity in the sciences of the present day. They put all laws aside, in order to accept for instance the germ-theory (or for that matter any theory), because they want something that in its aggregate is large enough to be felt with the fingers.’
    (Kent J.T. Lesser Writings)

    Since this is so, the throne of the Emperor must remain empty, till the rightful owner comes back to claim it. We cannot assume that modern medicine with its claims to health and happiness which they fail to deliver has the right to occupy any throne – let alone the throne of learning that medicine is.
    You can see for yourself – and if not, we shall make you see – that in the century-and-a-half between these words and the present day nothing has changed. If we are unable to make you see the obvious you are either literally or figuratively blind. In the first case you will be forgiven. In the latter case, we suspect you belong in the class of ‘none so blind that refuse to see’. We admit that for those, even homeopathy is almost powerless. But only almost, since such refusal is merely a part of the symptoms and thus curable.
    Do not accept or reject anything before you have investigated it and that on its own merits.

      The Emperor’s New Clothes

      After WWII, some changes took place in medicine that are extremely detrimental to your health. The first was the incorporation of the camp-doctors within the mainstream. The Allies took as many as they could find, including laboratory personnel, because they knew the procedures. We all know they took the rocket scientists and think that was it. But doctors and chemists and other life-scientists were considered as important, for they had a lot to teach.

      Next was the incorporation of those teachings within mainstream research. From the present-day progression, we can all see that Medical Fascism is gaining ground, with mandatory vaccination, mandatory medicinal intake by schoolchildren and mandatory testing at pregnancy or at least the push for such legislation by all too copliant and even willing Governments.
      They would like it so that everything not forbidden is compulsory or if not, to be made so on the shortest possible notice and anything not compulsory is forbidden or if not, to also be made so on the shortest possible notice. This of course includes any alternative to their form of quasi-scientific quackery.
      There was however a problem.

      How did they integrate a despicable form of research and treatment resulting from it, without incurring the wrath of the entire world?
      They instigated an enormous PR campaign in which the childhood diseases were painted in the darkest colours, from the few deaths that occurred from them among the poor and underfed.
      They then began with mass vaccination and presented it as a benevolent procedure. The resulting diseases caused by the side effects they must of course research to ‘understand’ them. It also gave them a tool of fear, to demand compulsion. From the history of vaccination they already knew it was a superfluous procedure with its own accompanying dangers. The simultaneous increase in hygiene, better housing and food that were the real cause of reductions in diseases was kept out of the public eye and the vaccinations were claimed to have done the trick.
      An increase in vaccines is the next step to make the population sick and instigate more research. These vaccines create ‘a-typical’ forms of the disease which are deadly and on that basis they demanded compulsory vaccination, which succeeded in the US, some States in Canada and Australia, but not in Europe.
      When Watson and Crick announced the helical structure of DNA in 1956, medical science had prodded the biologists to further investigate the genes – more fragmentation – so they could exploit the results and piggy-back their own genetic research onto it. Mind you, this was only 10 years after WW II, which should give us pause to think. It must have taken a massive effort – similar to the Manhattan project – to advance that much in so few years, considering the technology available. Gradually, they introduced the idea of genetic causes of disease and more research was directed towards it.

      This increased the power of the Medical-Pharmaceutical Industrial Empire a great deal and fed its ambitions to megalomaniacal proportions and so it was that it became the Emperor of Sciences, rather than simply remaining the Emperor of Arts. Lobbying the Governments further strengthened their position and the Emperor grew in power, demanding compulsion for vaccination – if not possible for babies, then for the military at least, ‘to protect them against biological weapons’.
      The Governments realised that universal healthcare could be achieved with the help of the Industry and the socialism that took a hold of Europe and elsewhere began to implement it. This meant giving more power to the Medical-Pharmaceutical Industrial Empire, which suited them very well. With legislation backing them, they could finally install their Emperor upon the throne.
      Next, they lobbied to make certain other types of treatment compulsory, which failed on a general level, but was successful at the local level in many places. Now they had another weapon in their fight for control of health, reproduction and sanity. For meanwhile they had also developed the pill, to control the population numbers. They moreover increased the number of ‘psychiatric illnesses’, which puts schoolchildren on six different drugs every day, to ‘control their behaviour’. The fact that 60% of Americans are on some form of psycho-active drugs, is telling in this respect. Any other form of medicine is labeled quackery and prosecuted, harrassed and robbed of its tools, by declaring them carcinogenic or some such excuse. That is how much their Emperor has gained in power.

      They present their Emperor to us as a more and more dictatorial figure, whose desires in the war on disease must be followed without so much as demurring. Dressed up in the tyranny of conformation, he demands you must submit to everyone of his procedures. From the day you were born, some form of the Emperor’s directives have been forced upon you, no matter how loud you protested. The Emperor demands that we shall be subjected to mandatory suffering.
      While you will not be tortured in the literal sense of being imprisoned and subjected to thumbscrews, waterboarding and such like, the substances they subject you to can at least be classed in the same category. Most of the time it does not even leave a mark, except with pox, measles, whooping-cough and possibly polio, which may drop you dead, give you personality and brain-damage or leave you a paralysed, drooling wreck.

      They say this is based on scientific evidence. However, evidence is supposed to remove all doubt. The evidence in the ‘evidence-based medicine’ presented by the orthodox brethren produces different results from their suppositions. It does not remove doubt, but reinforces it. While they have impressive arrays of machinery to show us their ‘evidence’, the conclusions derived from it are far from rational and highly doubtful by themselves, as we shall discover.
      Their treatment is suppressive, forcing the disease to seek ever newer outlets, primarily because its former outlet is removed by surgery. By pushing the disease further inside, they conveniently hide its symptoms for some time, after which it will break out anew and be taken to be a different disease. They force upon the patient all kinds of haphazard measures, which he swallows, hook, line and sinker. They experiment a little here and add some guesswork there and simply wait and see and hope for the best. The boringly drab conventional cloakery in which they dress up their vague explanations fails to impress.

      As William Blake said:

      “The Prince's Robes & Beggars' Rags
      Are Toadstools on the Miser's Bags.”

      What else but miserly is modern medicine, with its attention to machines and its complete and utter disregard for the patient, the real sufferer.

      Such types of clothes cannot even be designated as rags, let alone represent the Imperial robes, with all their splendour, beauty and glory. For their Emperor has no sable mantles, no pashmina shawls, no hermelin robes, no gold-embroidered silken shirts, no velvet trousers, no fine wool or cotton socks and no beautifully crafted shoes with gold-and-diamond clasps. He does not even wear an Imperial ring! Their Emperor wears consequently no clothes at all, but as in the fable, nobody dares to say anything.
      We shall assume the mantle of the child and loudly proclaim that their Emperor is naked!

        Dear Kaviraj
        Great posts,Thanks!Just to add to what you said already-

        What it comes down to is;
        1-skeptics that post on homeopathic forums are not educated in homeopathic law and principles,no inclination whatsoever to make an attempt to open their minds to other forms of healing.Have never studied cases,have not worked with a homeopath,have not witnessed homeopathic hospitals in action.
        2-biased base replies (Example Hans works for a drug corporation of course he defends allopathics it pays his bills.)
        3-skeptics are followers/fans of "quakbuster"/James Randi- websites,they zone in to the same mute points "scientific proof".................there is none.
        4-This " gold standard science" for proof is a joke -even for the allopathic drug community,as its corrupted by politics/lobbyists/media manipulation/FDA/AMA/CDC,yet skeptics still have 100% trust in these horrid statistical data.This is my reason for posting all these links to proove the corruption in conventional allopathic meds.
        I am merely the messenger,anyone can find this stuff,anyone.Instead they choose to play ignorant.

          Dear Gina,
          Yeah, if ignorance is bliss, why dont they show a happier attitude?

With legislation backing them, they could finally install their Emperor upon the throne............................................ .................................................. ............................."

            Who Did these Gold standard test? Why were they approved in the firstplace? Big Pharma spends one Billion dollars(per year) on MARKETING these drugs,only a few million $ testing them for safety........................The outcome;

            adverse drug reactions are responsible for 2.2 million hospitalizations and 106,000 deaths annually.1

            Furthermore, as many as 50 percent of FDA-approved drugs are withdrawn or relabeled due to unanticipated side effects in humans.2

            A shockingly low 56 percent of known human teratogens are positive in one of six species surveyed.3

            Below are a few selected examples;
            Perhaps the most famous teratogen, this drug was given to pregnant women in the 1950’s to control nausea, causing more than 10,000 births with limb-reduction defects.4,5 After thalidomide was withdrawn from the market, tests in pregnant mice, rats, and guinea pigs were negative; finally, one strain of rabbit (the New Zealand white rabbit) was found to be susceptible. Cats, hamsters, rats, and mice were later found to be sensitive only to extremely high doses.3
            Oraflex, Opren (Benoxaprofen)
            Even though year-long tests in rhesus monkeys6 gave no indication of risk, months after this non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) was released onto the market in 1982, patients began experiencing severe liver toxicity and phototoxicity,7,8 eventually resulting in withdrawl of the drug, but only after more than 3,500 serious adverse events and 60 deaths occurred in Britain alone.9
            Flenac (Fenclofenac)
            This NSAID, despite passing animal toxicity tests in 10 animal species (mice, rats, guinea pigs, ferrets, rabbits, cats, dogs, pigs, horses, and monkeys), produced severe liver toxicity in humans.10
            Butazolidin (Phenylbutazone)
            This NSAID is commonly used in equine medicine to reduce pain and inflammation, but in humans can produce serious phototoxicity,11 as well as serious or fatal liver12 or bone marrow13 disease. Bone marrow toxicity was demonstrated in human cell cultures after the drug was released and produced more than 10,000 fatal cases of aplastic anemia.14-16
            Cylert (Pemoline)
            Fifteen children suffered acute liver failure after taking this attention deficit hyperactivity disorder treatment, and 12 of those cases resulted in liver transplant or death.17 No animal tests that showed an indication of hepatic toxicity could be found.
            Rezulin (Troglitazone)
            This drug, intended to treat type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes, was approved by the FDA in 1997. Rezulin lowered the blood sugar in rats without producing adverse effects, but reports of severe and even fatal liver failure appeared immediately after approval. Due largely to an aggressive investigation by the Los Angeles Times and after four label changes, Rezulin was withdrawn in 2000 after 391 deaths were attributed to the drug.18
            Propulsid (Cisapride)
            Propulsid was approved by the FDA in 1993 and was used primarily to treat gastric reflux in children. Heart rhythm disturbances had appeared in clinical trials, but not in animal studies. By 1995, heart rhythm deaths in children became evident through adverse events reports. The drug remained on the market with five label changes, until being withdrawn in 2000 after causing over 300 deaths.18
            Inocor (Amrinone)
            This short-term therapy option for patients with severe heart failure produced severe and sometimes fatal thrombocytopenia (decreased blood clotting ability) in humans, despite no evidence of this effect in 2-year-long animal tests. Only after approval, and only in marmosets and a very specific, metabolically compromised strain of rat, were similar effects found.7
            Baycol (Cerivastatin)
            Baycol was a popular drug approved in 1997 for the treatment of dyslipidemia (abnormal cholesterol levels), but it was withdrawn after substantial risk for severe or fatal rhabdomyolysis (muscle wasting) was revealed in patients. Muscle wasting was not seen in pre-clinical animal tests, including rats, mice, minipigs, dogs, or monkeys; only at very high doses were indications of effects on muscle tissue seen.19 The authors concluded that cerivastatin was well tolerated in all species. Post-withdrawal tests using rat and human muscle cells in vitro revealed that rat cells are 200 times more resistant to the drug’s effects.20 Eventually more than 100 deaths were linked to cerivastatin.
            Such a high error rate begs the question: How many possibly life-saving therapies have clinicians never investigated because of toxicities in other animal species? Penicillin, which was originally discovered in 1929, wasn’t used until 1939 because of its ineffectiveness in curing infected rabbits. If it had been “safety” tested in cats, guinea pigs, or hamsters, it would have been abandoned as toxic.21
            Furosemide (Lasix) is one of our most important diuretics, used to reduce fluid retention during heart failure and other diseases. Though experiments in mice show extensive liver damage, decades of clinical use have proven its safety for humans.22,23
            One of our most relied-upon pain relievers, Aspirin (Acetylsalicylic acid), causes teratogenic malformations in mice, rats, dogs, cats, rabbits, and monkeys.3
