Life comes with problems


"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin -- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

-- Fr. Alfred DíSouza

Life always brings problems. We really canít live without them.

And so it helps to shift our perspective. We can stop trying to avoid the problems. We can stop feeling victimized by whatís happening. Instead, we can consciously work with the challenge of the moment to learn more about ourselves and the world. When we make this shift in attitude, we discover ourselves to be strong and powerful.

"Every lesson is a widening and deepening of consciousness. It is a stretching of the mind beyond its conceptual limits and a stretching of the heart beyond its emotional boundaries. It is a bringing of unconscious material into consciousness, a healing of past wounds, and a discovery of new faith and trust."

-- Paul Ferrini

"We can make the sorrow and suffering into a compost out of which the roses of joy can grow. This is a continuous quest, and we have too keep sowing the rose seeds and not just get overwhelmed by compost"

From "You Are, Therefore I Am" by Satish Kumar, chapter 4; words he remembered being spoken by his mother.
