Individual & Collective Pain

December 26, 2007 at 2:10 pm 1 comment

Overcome any bitterness that may have come to you because you were not up to the magnitude of the pain that was entrusted to you.

Like the mother of the world who carries the pain of the world in her heart, each one of us is part of her heart and therfore endowed with a certain measure of cosmic pain.  You are sharing in the totality of that pain.

You are called upon to meet it in joy instead of self-pity.  The secret is to offer your heart as a vehicle to transform cosmic suffering into joy.

    This is a wise and beautiful saying. We are not to suffer, rather we are to convert this pain to joy and then radiate that healing energy back to the earth and each other.
