Rising Above

letting go of suffering

For some of us there may be a certain comfort in suffering, in being a victim, because we don’t have to take responsibility; it’s much easier to blame someone else for our own discontent. Some of us get lost in the suffering we have been through in the past, unable to embrace things anew or see them through fresh eyes. We then miss out on experiencing the beauty of the present moment. We need to restore our innocence and focus on the love within us and in the world. This requires rising beyond he discontent of the intellect, and embrace freedom and joy in every moment.

Where Did You Learn Courage?
Growing up, how did you learn to be courageous?
I watched my parents and siblings and did what they did
My parents talked to me when I was scared and that helped me be brave
I planned what I would do in scary situations ahead of time
I followed the example of my favorite superheroes
People tried to help, but in the end I just had to face my fears on my own
