Soulmaking and Suffering
Suffering purifies the soul. Working through problems is painful and confusing but allows me to use life circumstances as part of my path toward soul; grist for the mill of soulmaking. Running away from or not fully processing and reintegrating suffering is running away from my full self. Parts of me will be left behind, encased in an unfelt moment of my life, unattended to, frozen and hardened. This frozenness will block the soul until such time when I am willing to thaw out, to relax and let be what will be, to pass through the eye of the needle. There is a truth and an honesty to real suffering that allows me to return to myself, to restore my insides. My willingness to suffer means that I can grow and expand because I am not leaving important aspects of myself untouched and unseen. When I am willing to feel the pain, I inherit the joy.
I need not be a stranger to suffering.
Call the world if you please, the veil of soulmaking.
