Graduation 2013!

By: Rajesh Vallabh

Congratulations Homeopaths of 2013. And thank you for the honour of being Class Valedictorian.

As Parents, husbands, wives and children, we have all made great sacrifices to bring us to this point.  But we didn’t do it alone. On behalf of all my class mates I say thank you to our families, our friends, and our academic adjudicators for their wonderful patience and support.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

When I walked into my 1st class @ Northrope Frye as a 1st year student in 2010,  I did not know what to expect.  We all sat at our little school desks like Grade One-ers going to school for the 1st time. Excited but shy to talk to each other.  Eating lunch quietly and alone.

Lisa was our lecturer at that time and she awed us with the marvels of Homeopathy.  Listening in disbelief would best sum up that 1st year.

It was also the crunch year for a lot of us.  We lost a few--not sure if they were shooed away by Greg’s Cadavers or Donna’s nutrition.  But most of us hung in there.

Me? I felt like I was getting a handle on what I was learning.  I thought this would be ok.  (Yeah, right….)

Our class grew from the small class we were to a much larger one.  We had a few defectors join from OCHM. We generously gave them immunity after the 1st tribal challenge.

Having done first year by distance ed, we acquired a pharmacist / stenographer who drove up from the US, spending weekends in Toronto. She commuted unflinchingly for 2 long years. Leslie, you are one tough cookie.  On behalf of everyone in class I would like to say thank you for the most beautiful and concise notes.  (you Sepia you)

By the end of the 2nd year this class had bonded and was on its way to becoming a family. 

Me? I felt I’d learned so much, but I couldn’t connect the dots to make pictures that would pull together all this information. Was I missing numbers I needed to connect the dots, or had some essential dots escaped or vapourized?  I was confused.

In our Final year we got a loud new student from Elmira, who had already done the first 2 years by distance ed.  Jen was an instant social hit.  I also visited India to look for those missing numbers or maybe dots.  My experience there has led me to this conclusion. 

As Homeopaths we are always learning.  Striving to improve our results, striving to improve ourselves.  Pushing ourselves to make us better.  We will always be seekers of Knowledge.  Hence, we will always be students.

Now, as I graduate, I feel as if I have learned so much but still know so little.  I feel like a huge vessel with only a little info in it.  However, I am confident I have all the numbers I need to connect all the dots, even those dots I have yet to acquire.  

To my classmates who have become my family over the last 3 years, I would like to reflect an inner voice for us all. 

I am a homeopath.  I owe my being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face of our native land.  My body has frozen in our frosts and in our latter day snows. It has thawed in the warmth of our sunshine and melted in the heat of the midday sun. The crack and the rumble of the summer thunders, lashed by startling lightning, have been a cause both of trembling and of hope.

I owe my being to the Majestic kingdoms of Minerals, plants, animals and imponderables.  Today, as homeopaths we keep an audible silence about these ancestors of the generations that lived, which, in it’s remembering, teach us. 

Whoever we may be, whatever our immediate interest, however much we carry miasms from our past, however much we have been caught by the fashion of cynicism and loss of faith in the capacity of the people, let us err today and say - nothing can stop us now!

All this I know and know to be true because I am Homeopath!

This thing that we have done today, in this small corner of a great continent that has contributed so decisively to the evolution of humanity, says that Homeopathy reaffirms that she is continuing her rise from the ashes.

Whatever the setbacks of the moment, nothing can stop us now! Whatever the difficulties, Homeopathy shall be at peace! However improbable it may sound to the skeptics, Homeopathy will prosper!

Far better to see it as one beginning among what will inevitably be a series of beginnings in our lives, and to remember that while it is the time we launch ourselves out into the world to unleash our energy and dreams, we are neither alone across the country in doing this and that many generations have done this before us.  I wish all of us the very best of the future.
