Sitting in the pew, I had a vivid picture spontaneously come to my mind of my lower right leg coupled with the phrase "like it never happened." This was strange because all ultrasound evidence, which I saw with my own eyes 6 weeks ago, was that I had Deep Venous Thrombosis blood clots (DVTs) that could move up my leg into my lungs, heart, brain, and kill me. I know how real this can be because I comforted the widow of a colleague of mine who had this happen to him and I didn't want others to have to comfort my wonderful wife should this happen to me.  So it surprised me that this phrase, "like it never happened," was just there out of nowhere while I was sitting quietly in the pew gently welling up from some deep place within me that wanted me whole spontaneously, clearly, without fear.  It contradicted everything I "knew" from seeing the ultrasound result myself, like a "knowing" of some other reality that calmed my fear, a "knowing" I didn't manufacture, work up, or wish myself into believing was true.  So it was with even greater surprise and joy that, for no apparent reason, my DVTs just disappeared on  my repeat ultrasound last week.  DVTs are "expected" to persist for 3-6 months and now they were gone in 6 weeks.  Imagine that!  From what happened to me, I can only continue to be still with a heart full of gratitude breathing quietly in the pew and imagining what "knowings" are welling up in others around me their "knowings" wanting them to be whole again... "like it never happened."  Can you imagine that?  I can! ~ Paul Dobies
