Freedom from suffering. This is what we all seek whether we admit it to ourselves or not. On this seeker’s path we come to know this freedom by accepting life exactly as it finds us. When we open wide to our inner experience and as the waves of emotion flow through us, all is transformed into Love.
For ourselves, this is a choice. A way of being. We decide we want to respond to the world instead of react to it. Once this understanding takes hold in our hearts, our path is forever altered towards Truth. We become living, breathing expressions of the is-ness of life.
Through us life becomes pure.
It is not an easy process. It is not without pain but it holds great and everlasting purpose.
This is how we illuminate the way for those lost in the dark. We become so intimate with the hidden fear and pain within us, we can look with wholeness at the hidden fear and pain of others.
We cannot prevent turmoil in another. If we could, they would lose the gifts embedded in their journey. Though these gifts are unseeable in the moment, we trust they are there. This is because we have walked through our own despair with open eyes and collected deeper heart wisdom.
We are only meant to walk along side the hurting other as a witness.
As Love Itself.
To hand back to them the possibility of growing in Truth, in wisdom and in an ever-widening heart.
Whether by chance or by grief, we all return Home.
