Living is about experiencing life events with courage and humility.
One can be ‘alive’ and still not be living.
What makes us alive is breaking the walls of fear and observing experience of who we are and who we are not. It is a game!
Would you want to have a friend/mentor that has never failed and has never tried anything meaningful to himself/herself?
Or would you want to have a friend/mentor who has failed, experienced hurt and know themselves better.
Rumi says,” What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.”
Why hurting can be a blessing? Why darkness can be a candle?
What is worthwhile on the other side that is worth going through darkness and hurt?
- In life we all experience hurt and sometimes, to avoid temporary hurt, we make choices that are not to our highest good.
- Darkness forces us to drop limited images of who we think we are and to see and to experience our true essence.
We all will face challenges and hurt as well as joy in life. This is part of the game of life which come in a package.
During this game we need to keep asking ourselves:
- Who am I?
- What is my highest good?
- How can my hurts be blessings?
- Am I playing the game with courage and or curiosity or am I playing it safe?
