I have read many books and articles where people have not just lost a loved one but entire families, and the resilience these people have shown in rebuilding their shattered lives, is simply remarkable. When I get DotsHQ going I will have an application where we can access these stories so that we can draw energy from those of us who can comfort by sharing their experiences and how they recover from life shattering experiences.
But I mentioned earlier about tragedies leaving life long scars IF YOU LET THEM......... and in that bit of guidance lies a secret. All of us need help and support when we are shattered in one way or another. The Degree Of Devastation depends on how you are conditioned to handle the pain. It is when you need a God, or spiritual awareness, to help you cope. It is when you need to access the LOVE in the world that is beckoning, the love that surrounds us all, the LOVE that wants to give.
The secret that I am talking about, the resilience we all need to handle the shattering, is the ability TO LET GO. This ability will unfortunately only come with personal experience and the pain of suffering, but if we can condition ourselves to accept the pain for what it is and surrender to its darkness, then the shattering, the loss, the grief, will provide us with the experience to help our brothers and sisters in need. There is never a truer statement than "EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON"
The more suffering, the more experience, the more resilience to be able to cope and to show others how to cope......
