In our codependent way of thinking, we want to rescue those we love from suffering--at least I know I do. I don't want my children, especially, to suffer. And yet, suffering has a purpose that is as necessary to the development of our spiritual and emotional maturity as any other component of life on this earth.
I woke up this morning with a flash of insight and bailed out of bed on the run. I couldn't wait to write it all down. I don't know if you ever do that, but it is with a sense of excitement that I began to write and consider the content of the stream of consciousness that flowed in black ink onto the paper.
Perhaps you experience the same thing occasionally. We are, after all, communicating via authorsden.com :-) I posted my thoughts at lindasettles.com this morning. I hope you will visit me there.
Love to all,
