"Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering
before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through
-- Orison Swett Marden
We can’t escape problems and negativity. Escaping just brings
denial and suppression - we continue to carry the problem with
us. Ironically, it is our lack of acceptance and resistance to
the problem that creates the pain. Resistance builds up an energy
wall or block that, if not discharged, gets suppressed into the
body. These blocks identify places where we have not enough
understanding or love.
For health, we must work through what we seek to avoid. How do we
do this? We can love parts of ourselves that we don’t like. We
can seek the lessons we are being invited to learn through the
problem. We can examine our beliefs and seek to see different
perspectives and a bigger picture. As our perspectives grow, more
of life makes sense and has meaning.
"The Lord is a good psychologist: he knows the way our minds
run. Turmoil can be the Lord's way of tapping us on the shoulder
and saying, 'Don't forget me.'"
-- Eknath Easwaran
