Suffering is Optional

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
~John Steinbeck~

Life flows in cycles. Together we participate in an amazing, endless dance of beginnings and endings, dark and light, illness and healing, life and death, love and loss. The resistance that we encounter is the ego saying “This is wrong, this shouldn’t be happening”... and yet, beauty is found in this flow.

When we surrender to the present moment and look past the stories of the ego, a great stillness is discovered. Stillness transforms into peace and within that peace is joy. Within that joy is love. Transformation always allows something new to be born.

Acceptance to life opens the door to a state of grace, ease and lightness. At the deepest level, true detached compassion becomes healing – your mere presence will be a calm harbor in the storms of life and people will be touched and affected by the sense of peace you emanate, whether they are consciously aware or it or not.
