Dear Colleagues and Readers,
This issue almost never happened, when suddenly articles began
to take shape, about potential areas of development for both homeopaths
and homeopathy. It has been an experience of discovery, that homeopathy
can be pushed to the boundaries by people motivated with a common
vision, in humble service, where the Spirit of God is at work.
The core members of the Dhawale Trust in the Hotseat this month,
all sincere, committed and excellent homeopaths, created a deep
soul stirring within me. I was overwhelmed and touched with what
teamwork and selfless community service could achieve. Here was
an experience of ‘scientific’ homeopathy.
In the interview with Melissa Assilem, we see the other end of
this spectrum of excellence, with her beautiful imagery and gentle
sensitivity – soul stirring again! The Homeopathic System
accommodates everyone – those wishing to advance it through scientific
development like the ML Dhawale group, and those who wish to advance
it intuitively, as through the inspiration of a guardian angel,
like Melissa Assilem and her provings of exotic natural substances.
Please take time to read every article as each of them reflects
the deep spirituality of the author, their pursuit of excellence
in what they believe, taking everything they do to a higher level
of mission. I particularly enjoyed Dr. Navin Pawaskar’s “Emergency
and Homeopathy”, as it resonated with my personal interest
in developing a homeopath’s capacity to treat emergency conditions
with homeopathic remedies. The cases reflect the capacity of classical
homeopathy to deal with any emergency, when we are focused on what
needs to be cured, and have been adequately trained to manage it
– certainly attainable for those willing.
There is very good news for future homeopathic graduates in India.
Articles in this issue promise that research, hospital management,
administration, community service and teaching, etc. in homeopathy
will become important careers for homeopaths. This comes with a
condition – we must each work towards developing the values
of humility, commitment, teamwork and community service. Dr. Nigwekar’s
article “Spread of Light” gives us a taste of this future.
At Hpathy, the team has been working hard to bring these same
values from within the global homeopathic community, together in
one place. That way our strengths are shared to make us a stronger
community. My interaction with every person working in the Dhawale
organization impressed upon me that through treating each other
with kindness and respect and listening to one another, we could
experience healing within ourselves, for the benefit of our patients.
I dedicate this issue to the memory of Dr. ML Dhawale on his birth
anniversary, July 14th, and to the Institute of Clinical Research
he founded to develop unprejudiced, competent, yet humble homeopaths
serving the community, most especially the downtrodden in society.
