From Maria A., Houston, Texas
I have been a distance student of CCHM for 5 years and think it’s imperative for others to know what influence Raymond Edge has had on me personally. I wish I could have attended the tribute in Canada, but I cannot as I am dealing with life issues as we all are.
He did review my work and grade my papers for about 3 years. He was not only talented, and I learned through his instructional comments on my philosophy assignments, what a unique person he was. He was one of the most animated people that cared deeply for others in order to bring emotional and physical healing to others and was intensely connected to the essence of life as most musicians are. I believe you would need all these above things in order to open a school like Raymond did.
I believe he wanted us to know that it isn’t about us but is about others. I believe he had the heart and essence of Hahnemann within him. The energy that musicians bring forth in their music conveys emotional healing as they are reaching out with their heart to others. I believe Raymond’s music was a vehicle that led him to open this incredible school and an opportunity for every student that now attends and has attended this school of homeopathy. I believe Raymond wanted me to know through the encouragement he would express while grading my work that there was a greater purpose behind learning this art of homeopathy and because of Raymond’s vision and caring that I now have the image he wanted me to learn firmly planted not only in my head but in my heart that we truly need to care for others as he did.
I could feel his gentleness in his nature as he would always respect my personal beliefs that I would express in my lesson work. As a musician myself and in becoming homeopath, the greatest gift I can give as a tribute to Raymond is to finish my schooling and to continue learning this art for the rest of my life through caring for others and helping them along the journey of healing. I now understand from Raymond’s vision that we are here for a greater purpose than ourselves and I just want to thank him for having this most personal and greatest effect upon my life. I want to encourage every student that attends this school today that when it feels tough and gets difficult studying and learning this great art of homeopathy, to remember that every time Raymond is smiling down on you and encouraging you to keep on going and that he understood it can be tough at times.
Thank you Raymond for your heart, life, music and for providing for me the greatest opportunity that I have ever encountered in my life to help others to heal and be whole. Perhaps I too “may be able to look down from heaven (someday) and peep through a hole and see that my work is well done.”(Constantine Hering)
