When the Renaissance artist Michelangelo was asked how he works, he described his sculpting philosophy:
– I’m looking for a stone that already contains the sculpture. In the block of marble I see the statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. Then I remove the excess material that imprisons the lovely apparition. –
Freeing the statue from the stone Michelangelo released the beautiful and powerful figures hidden in the marble. Often he worked for days on end without sleep to create the images he saw in his mind’s eye.
Constitutional treatment in homeopathy is similar. Like ideal forms that slumber within the marble, waiting to be revealed, humans too possess a slumbering ideal form – the ideal self – to which each individual aspires.
With homeopathy individuals are treated chronically until they are finally freed from the burden of their mistuned vital force. A balanced individual is released who is more in tune with their true, ideal self.
In this way homeopathy supports the regaining of a healthy condition in which the spiritual vital force can maintain the sensations and activities of all the parts of the living organism in harmony, and where the mind can freely employ this living, healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence.
