Someone asked me where I’d been, I replied, “oh, you know, here and there.”
As a Counsellor, trained and experienced in ‘models’ of therapy, I am in a professional body of approach to client request for an appointment that often unwittingly sees any possible resolution for a person as being ‘over there’.
This is just as it is, and transitionally it is necessary for many, many people at this time. The 12 Step Programme is itself a vehicle for most that involves a participant in a spiritual awakening to a solution for a problem over their experience of time, even though a founder of the Programme, Bill W. was involved in a spiritual experience out of time, as a solution for his alcohol problem that he then transmitted to others over time.
To be both ‘here and there’, does then take a little practice for most people. The counselling models are more usually involved with a symbolic statement of ‘there there’, to the many presenting problems of bewildered clients, until such time as a person can see their way clear to move through to a new vision of themselves.
The term ‘hear hear’, is usually an ‘applauding in the moment’ of an agreement to, or an appreciation of, points that someone else is making in a speech, but poetically speaks to me phonetically as ‘here, here’.
So ‘here’, is both in a physical placement as well as hearing a description of a point related to time.
I say that ‘here’ is related to time because ‘there’, is more the word that actualises time – so we can say both ‘there was a time, there is a time and there will be a time’, more easily than the word ‘here’ can be moved as a descriptor of time, ‘here’ can be moved but it always keeps its sense of being ‘in’ time not ‘of’ time.
Everything is actually ‘here and there’ both at the same time, but it may take contact with a person who can clearly express this reality, to help more people to see the fact of this matter for themselves. The state that is most injurious to a person or a collective is that state of deliriously imagining that it’s all ‘neither here nor there’ and that therefore change is not possible.
I am both a Therapist and a Herapist.
Diction Resolution Therapy (DRT) is my mode of working to help people to get there, whilst my work as a Spiritual Healer, I’m a student member of The Healing Trust (NFSH), is my way of helping people to arrive here .
