Reflections on pain

Reflection on a quote by cheri huber

Painful things come up

Not to ruin our lives

Not to make us miserable

Not to spoil our good time

they come up to be healed

to be embraced in compassion

 by cheri Huber

I read this quote many years ago and stumbled on it again today. It was such a beautiful message that I wrote it carefully in a hard back book. I also wrote these words to go with it.

Take notice of these situations when pain arises. 

Notice it

It is here.

If I push it away, it will not go but tension will make it feel worse.

If I let it in, I can feel the waves of tension and cessation wash along my shore.
