Human Suffering

People who experience dissolution may or may not deserve it. We should not judge them. On a human or moral level, they may well be innocent; sometimes very good people suffer and such suffering appears to be unjust. The soul, however, deserves to experience the episodes it chooses. A person may need to disassemble for reasons of the soul. 

Perhaps a person is suffering for the soul’s actions in another life time. All of us, in our multiple lifetimes, have killed other people, have killed ourselves, have suffered terrible diseases, have known destitution, have perpetrated and been perpetrated upon. We work through these events in one lifetime or another.

Many people suffer the same or similar calamities. Some of them recover while others do not. Why is this so? When a soul has its reasons, its progress cannot be stopped. We might yearn deeply to stop the track of unhappiness and the terrible dissolution that our friends and relatives experience. This yearning of ours does not assist them. Another possibility is for us to respect the path of the soul.

The suffering a person experiences does not end with itself. Even if they suffer for a lifetime or choose to end their life because of the extremity of their suffering, they will begin to assemble again. No matter what the extent of their disintegration may be, they are held by universal law and by the light of the Goddess. They are held by the light and love of the universe. When they recognize where they are, when they recognize the strength of spirit, they will turn. Disassembly cannot end with itself. Assembly always follows disassembly.

If you see your own suffering in the suffering of others, you believe in it with them. Then you are supporting their suffering, and you assist it by confirming its power. Your own fear hooks into it and makes it stronger. Their suffering stimulates your memory of suffering, and together you intensify one another’s suffering. This is what pity is.

When you no longer see yourself in their pain, your identity is not confirmed by their unhappiness. Then you experience compassion, a benevolent kindness that is detached from your own experience of suffering. This compassion knows no yearning and no conflict. You become a healing presence that heals simply by the presence of its own light, without effort and without energy. You can see deeply into the heart of the suffering person because you are not bound by fear, sorrow, memory and dread within yourself. You achieve perfect clarity without judgment of others or yourself. The potential for this knowledge exists, not in the mind, but in the heart. The perfect clarity you can achieve is not a matter of understanding but of love. Then you are healing by holding the light of the Absolute, and you are centered in that light. You will not need to do anything because the light will do its work through you. Then you will heal simply as you are: self-existing, self-fulfilling, and self-sustaining.

Letting Life Unfold

Try to allow your life to unfold like a flower rather than worrying and making predictions which cause stress. Our lives are guided by natural rhythms that are particular to each of us and cannot be altered by force of will alone. Life itself is a journey made up of processes and events that manifest before us only to be swept away when time marches on. Whether we envision ourselves creating a career, building a family, or developing the self, we instinctively know when the time has come for us to realize our dreams because all that is involved comes together harmoniously. When the time is right, the passage of destiny cannot be blocked. As desperate as we may be to touch these beautiful futures we have imagined, we cannot grow if we are not fully present in the evolutionary experience. The present can be challenging, uncomfortable, and tedious, but life unfolds as it will, and the universe will wait patiently as we make our way into the unknown.

The fate that awaits us is not dependent on our pace, which was pre-ordained before we ever appeared in human guise. Therefore, there is no reason to rush through life to reach those pinnacles of development associated with the paths we have chosen. Enjoying and fully experiencing the journey of life is as important as achieving goals and reaching milestones. There are lessons we can learn during those moments that seem immaterial or insignificant that we cannot learn at any other time. Appreciating these takes patience, however, because human beings tend to focus on the fulfillment of expectations rather than the simple joys of being.

Like many people, you have no doubt longed for a device that would give you the power to fast forward through certain periods of your existence. Yet haste is by its very nature vastly more stressful than serene fortitude. When you feel yourself growing impatient because the pace of your development is deceptively slow, remember that everything will occur in your life in its own time. Quelling your urge to rush will enable you to witness yourself learning, changing, and becoming stronger. There is so much to see and do in between the events and processes that we deem definitive. If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence’s unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.

July-August 2014

Dear Reader,

There is nowhere to go.

There is nowhere to hide.

There is nothing to do. 

Abide in the gift of the present moment. Within the moment of now, all is as it should be. There are no exceptions to this universal law. Letting go, into the full acceptance of now, brings peace, openness, and therefore, love, into our hearts.

May no one be the least little bit unhappy, ever.

Blessings and love,
