Pain Breaks us Open

In medical lore, pain is not THE problem, but is merely a symptom of the dis-ease. The pain forces us to seek answers. So it is in our spiritual struggles. The pain points to something that is calling us to prayer, to mediation, to awareness. Pain breaks us open. So instead of avoiding the pain, or anesthetizing it, perhaps the pathway is to sit with the pain. To befriend it. To listen to it. To look deeply into the heart of it and understand what part it may play in our unfolding spiritual pathway.  Syndie Eardly
