The primary meaning of the word

"healing" is "to cure what's diseased or broken."

Medical practitioners focus on sick people. While the sick people and families focus on the bills.
Psychotherapists wrestle with their clients' traumas and neuroses.
Philanthropists donate their money and social workers their time to helping the underprivileged.
I am in awe of them all. The level of one's spiritual enlightenment, I believe is more accurately measured by helping people in need than by meditation skills, shamanic shape shifting, supernatural powers, or religious knowledge.

But I also believe in a second kind of healing that is largely unrecognized : to supercharge what is already healthy ; to lift up what's merely sufficient to a sublime state.
Using this definition, describe two acts of healing : one you would enjoy performing on yourself and another you'd like to provide for someone you love. Drink water,daily.

You know what to do and you know how to do it.
