Occasionally the Beloved brings me a poem that I can’t resist. This is one by my friend Logan Jo’el.
The Beloved Physician
I have nothing and am too happy, they say.
Why does he smile so often, what drug or wine does he imbibe?
My body aches at the end of the day, yet I rest without qualms.
Some babies actually envy my sleep for I don’t fall asleep, I fall in Love.
I’m not the only one though, just one of many who have met The Beloved Physician,
Who heals from the marrow of one’s bones to the sheaths surrounding us.
The Beloved Physician told me this:
“Take all prescriptions as directed, but don’t forget to read between the lines. That perhaps is the easiest remedy for all aches and pains.”
“Exercise your Heart for at least five minutes a day, adding minutes as you feel stronger.”
“Dwell on what you love most every moment you can to relieve unnecessary burdens.”
“You may share a dose with someone who may need it but be wise. If necessary, consult with The Beloved Physician, or refer them to My Office.”
“Most importantly rest as much as possible . . . yes, rest in My Arms.”
Oh, the fee you ask? It’s nothing really, just the life you no longer wish to bear.
Your trust, willingness and sincerity are the only insurance The Beloved Physician will need to see.
With these in place no dis-ease stands a chance.
All else will be delivered to you through the care of Love,
Especially what you have sought after so ardently . . . your Freedom Here and Now.
Look within your Heart to schedule an appointment.
Logan Jo’el works in shipping, what he calls “simple and peaceful work.” He lives in Boston, Massachusetts, with his Bulgarian wife and their daughter. In 2000, he became a student of MasterPath under the tutelage of Sri Gary Olsen. Of this he says, “I could resonate with the Light and Sound teachings as expressed in MasterPath because I finally felt with all my heart I was where I needed to be. What drives and inspires me? Love!”
“Babies envy my sleep…” so perfect! Logan Jo’el is bhakti through and through. I read this poem some time ago and have kept it nearby because it is not only drenched in love, it has some beautiful counsel for us all. Thank you for posting it, Lesley!
Thank you, Rudy. Yes, that babies line really caught me too. Reading this lovely poem helped me renew my commitment to keeping my relationship with the Beloved first and foremost in my life. Resting in “His Arms” is so much easier than trying to do it all myself. Blessings to you, special soul.
I am left in silent contemplation, remembering the Beloved Physicain with tears of gratitude and kissed by Love. Thank you for sharing>
Thank you, Karina. Yes, the first time I read this I felt the same way. So grateful!

Thank you, Sheila. So true, it is exquisite and very reassuring. Love to you, dear soul.
Leslie, thank you for sharing this.
Logan, thank you for channeling this.
I am in love….with this message and my Path, and the Great Physician.
A definite keeper…thanks to Logan for the inspired words, to Lesley for sharing, & the Great Physician for the love, wisdom, & blessings given out to each one of us …
Lesley, thank you so much for sharing this poem by Logan Joel, for he is such a pure and open channel of the Divine! I so enjoy all of his writings and posts and feel blessed to have met him in cyber space. I actually had a dream about Logan and we were talking together on the phone, and it was such a powerful dream I had to send him a personal message and tell him about it! This great poem,”The Beloved Physician,” and all his channeling he shares always resonate with me. He is one person I really look forward to meeting at a Satsang with the Master!
Thank you, Michael, and all of you for your wonderful comments. It is a great treat for me to find writing such as this that celebrates The Inner Adventure. I’m happy you enjoyed it too.
Oh so precious. Huge smiles on the inner and outer. The poet has an inner beam to his face as well.
Thanks from another happy chela
Yes, thank you, Lesley, for posting this lovely poem. Just recently, I was introduced to your blog by a mutual friend. I am very new in my quest for non-traditional, conventional spirituality. I’ve noticed your reference to ‘My Beloved’. What does that mean exactly? Thank you.
Hello Caroline, I am honored to enjoy your presence here. Thank you! I use the term “Beloved” in the way that the great mystical poets such as Rumi and Hafiz did. These masters used the term to refer to the Divine current that flows through all of life. This current is above the dual poles of positive and negative, good and bad, right and wrong, and instead sees all experiences as lessons from the Divine. As well the term refers to their teachers, who embodied this current in physical form. So for me, it does also refer to my teacher Sri Gary Olsen of the MasterPath (www.masterpath.org). I like this blog to be about the purist form of spirituality that I can access, rather than any particular belief or religion. So my readers might reference “the Beloved” as their own loving God. As my teacher says, the highest path is the one you are on. I would be happy to visit more with you about this any time, so feel free to send an email response to my blog and I will get back to you. Thank you once again.
One more note came in about this question: Ultimately, the Beloved is one’s true Self.
Thank you Lesley for this timely sharing! What a beautiful reminder and gift.
