The Courage To Heal
Recognizing our problems as spiritual signposts
We can transcend our traumas by recognizing that what appear as problems, are really gifts in disguise. Every pain we suffer carries within it the seed of a greater opportunity. So many times, the greatest problems of our lives turn out to be the biggest blessings because they challenge us to be better, grow stronger and reach farther. Most often, we come through difficult times having been changed in ways that we never would have been without the experience.
If we miss the gift inside our pain and resort to blaming or self-pity, we simply suffer. If we have the courage to recognize our problems as spiritual signposts that carry messages for us, then we can gratefully accept the gift and transmute it into a lesson of love, and love is a healing force. Just as every problem proposes its own solution, every pain always contains the exact amount of love inside to sooth its own sting.
