Healing Life


When the world feels quiet and it is as though you are all alone, do not look at life as a punishment. When life meets us with challenges, it is easy to believe that we are being punished. Everyday can seem like something new is on our doorstep to torture us. Everything stacks up like weights. The first reaction is to fight back, to push back against the forces that seem to be keeping us down. And as we push back, it gets more and more difficult. We see everyone as an enemy, even the innocents.

But when we pause, and we view ourselves, removed from the situation, we soon see. It is not that we are being punished or being burdened. We are given a chance to breathe. Only when everything is stripped from us, are we ready to truly see ourselves and what we’ve become. Rather than becoming ourselves, we have become the world around us, except that the world is sick.

We emulate it in our daily lives. We seek it out, and nurture it, instead of releasing it and allowing love to flourish. The small blessings become lost on us. We seek miracle upon miracle hoping that something will wake us from our slumber, that we will see what we already know is in front of us.

Nothing can wake us no matter how small or big the miracle, unless we are ready to shed the pain. This life can either be a blessing, or a prison. It can heal us or torture us. When we decide what we want it to be, then perhaps we can truly live.
