Them Heavy People

I just learned today that Dolores Cannon has passed away, a few days ago, on October 18th. And it made me realize that today marks the 2nd anniversary of Andreas Moritz’ passing. These are both “Heavy People” for me. That is, these are people that I have learned, and continue to learn from, going far beyond the intellectual. And what they do exactly is difficult to categorize. I could say that Dolores Cannon is a hypnotherapist, but that is certainly not the whole story. And I could say that Andreas Moritz is a medical intuitive or a practitioner of Ayurveda or Shiatsu, but it is really quite deep spiritual teaching.

I have never met either of them. I had hoped to meet Dolores Cannon and am now even more grateful for her books and wonderful video talks where it feels as if your grandmother is sitting down with you for a deep chat! Andreas Moritz and I have never met in person, although we spoke many times and I considered him a friend. He encouraged me and seemed to have faith in my abilities to help others, which gave me a lot of confidence when I most needed it. He was a person that I could turn to when I couldn’t figure something out. I felt a very deep loss when I learned of his passing. I felt like my world was shrinking somehow and I felt a deeper responsibility to try to come up with answers myself.

I am deeply grateful for the work of both these “Heavy People”, which I’m taking from a song by Kate Bush. The lyrics, which I’ve quoted below suggest that she wanted to learn as much as possible while she was young. And the learning is spiritual learning.

They arrived at an inconvenient time
I was hiding in a room in my mind
They made me look at myself
I saw it well, I’d shut the people out of my life
So now I take the opportunities
Wonderful teachers ready to teach me
I must work on my mind
For now I realize
Everyone of us has a heaven inside

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Them heavy people help me
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Rolling the ball (rolling), rolling the ball (rolling), rolling the ball to me

They open doorways that I thought were shut for good
They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu
They build up my body, break me emotionally
It’s nearly killing me, but what a lovely feeling!
I love the whirling of the dervishes
I love the beauty of rare innocence
You don’t need no crystal ball
Don’t fall for a magic wand
We humans got it all, we perform the miracles
