It’s All a Lesson in Compassion
I am an inspirational speaker, a spiritual leader, and a community elder that has been greatly tested to help over the years when I hear stories filled with loss and anguish. I have talked with survivors of all different forms of loss, and found that there are ways to look at your life that can help you to survive, help you to use that loss or pain to help others, or even uncover an even better path for yourself that you may not have ever known without that misfortune in your life.
Everything we go through, every pain or challenge, is a lesson in compassion.
We are more sensitive, more understanding human beings when we have the opportunity to learn to rise above a situation. I call that “wisdom.” This wisdom can help others; perhaps you can even help them to avoid that bad experience entirely. If you can turn your trial into a new start, you will be mapping out how to use these problem solving tools for your loved ones, your children, and even your community.
You can choose to be a victim, or a survivor.
That may seem a little harsh coming from this huggy earth mama, yet really, it is the turning point in every successful life, and by successful, I mean, happy! We can and do find happiness even without that house, car, job, boyfriend or wife, or even more severe losses of a physical nature such as sight, speech, or amputation. I am grateful for those challenges in my life as they brought me to a much better place than all the “things” I had decided I needed to be happy; change your perception if you cannot change the reality.
What you believe, what you decide is important and will shape your life. We do it every day, in fact, thousands of times a day; we place a “value” on things in our life. We tell ourselves we will just “die” if we lose “this thing.” We say that we are “failures” if we are unable to get “that thing” by a certain date. We set ridiculous standards for our joy and happiness that have nothing to do with what really makes us happy!
So we need to remember the innocence of childhood before we “decided” what was of value. Do you remember the absolute joy of laying in the grass looking up at the stars? How about how good hugs feel when you’ve had a rough day? The value of holding a sleeping child in your arms is not made better by tailor-made pajamas! Our own mind decided success had a dollar value, instead of how much love and joy we can share and experience.
It’s time to “reboot”, to go back to that innocence, no matter what damages or events have happened to you in childhood, or in your adult life… you can find the natural center of innocence and start over. What do you really want to value in this lifetime?
