As one of India ’s largest and most sacred pilgrimage centers, Benares (Varanasi) has been revered for centuries by Hindus , Muslims , Buddhists , and Jains , millions of whom come to visit its innumerable temples and shrines and come to bathe along a three-mile stretch of steps leading to the Holy Ganga (Ganges) River. Whether coming for salvation, prosperity, or healing, most of these pilgrims have sought some form of ritual purification – a means of unloading their troubles and sins upon stars and holy men, the river Ganga, and the many sacred tanks fed by her springs and tributaries.
This is the day, which down the void abysm At the Earth-born’s spell yawns for Heaven’s despotism And Conquest is dragged captive through the deep: Love, from its awful throne of patient power In the wise heart, from the last giddy hour Of dread endurance, from the slippery, steep, And narrow verge of crag-like agony, springs And folds over the world its healing wings.Percy Bysshe Shelley
O golden Silence, bid our souls be still,And on the foolish fretting of our careLay thy soft touch of healing unaware!julia caroline dorr

In the deserts of the heart; Let the healing fountain start, In the prison of his days Teach the free man how to praise.wystan hugh auden
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; Daniel and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the L of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.But untoyou that fear my nameshall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.Bible (Old Testament)
America's present need is not heroics but healing; not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution but restoration.
I am a firm believer in living as if there were no such thing as a secret. If we hide our sins and live in darkness, we will never get the healing we so desperately need; in fact, if it is hidden so well that we don't even recognize it, we may never even find forgiveness.ted haggard
The reason people lose their healing, is because they begin questioning if God really did it.benny hinn
We fatuously hoped that we might pluck from the human tragedy itself a consciousness of a common destiny which should bring its own healing, that we might extract from life’s very misfortunes a power of cooperation which should be effective against them.jane addams
[On service] Giving feels good. It's a form of healing. Not just for you as an individual, but for everyone.jennifer beals
When you hear the music ringin' in your soul And you feel it in your heart and it grows and grows And it comes from the backstreet rock & roll and the healing has begun I want you to put on your pretty summer dress You can wear your Easter bonnet and all the rest And I wanna make love to you yes, yes, yes and the healing has begun.van morrison
Each loss has its compensation There is healing for every pain, But the bird with a broken pinion Never soars so high again.
The moment you can make a very simple discovery; viz., that obligation to God is your privilege, and is not imposed as a burden, your experience will teach you many things, that duty is liberty, that repentance is a release from sorrow, that sacrif1ce is gain, that humility is dignity, that the truth from which you hide is a healing element that bathes your disordered life, and that even the penalties and terrors of God are the artillery only of protection to His realm.
Righteousness and faith certainly are instrumental in healing the sick , deaf , or lame - if such healing accomplishes God 's purposes and is in accordance with His will. Thus, even with strong faith, many mountains will not be moved. And not all of the [sick]] and infirm will be healed .
The rose distils a healing balm The beating pulse of pain to calm.
In the nice bee, what sense so subtly true From pois'nous herbs extracts the healing dew?Alexander Pope
Part of the healing process is sharing with other people who care.Jerry Cantrell
No sound ought to be heard in the church but the healing voice of Christian charity.Edmund Burke
Every hot spring has healing properties because it has been boiled with foreign substances, and thus acquires a new useful quality.
Alternate translation: Christ gives us the relics of saints as health-giving springs through which flow blessings and healing. This should not be doubted. For if at God’s word water gushed from hard rock in the wilderness-yes, and from an ass’s jawbone when Samson was thirsty -why should it seem incredible that healing medicine should distill from the relics of saints
"There is a view that jazz is 'evil' because it comes from evil people, but actually the greatest priests on 52nd Street and on the streets of New York City were the musicians. They were doing the greatest healing work. They knew how to punch through music that would cure and make people feel good."
