When life doesn’t go as you predict or wish it will, what do you do to maintain balance and peace? Find the part of you that never changes. Any words that you place after “I am” are going to change. Therefore, revert to “I am” when you wish to find the changeless. “I am what?” you ask in confusion. Sit quietly and experience what lies beyond the confusion. Sit quietly and simply be without any musts, have to’s, rules, labels, titles, story. This state of being is “I am.” It is peaceful beyond measure. It has no expectations and disappointments. Fall back upon this state to know peace in between the joyous, tumultuous, ever-changing moments of moving from being to doing.
You are so very loved.
There are not other options for stroke survivors. They are. They are human and hurt while being human.
When we, as humans, (as handicapped or otherwise neglected,) are hurting, we sooner, or later, discover the truly empathetic folks around us, and are (or can) be gloriously grateful for their presence. Hurt inevitably is a huge learning curve, that we choose to like, or not. Often we chose or choose what’s not to like. But really, ask yourself again…”What’s not to like?” Even inside hurt – there are a multitude of choices.
Thank you for your kind words and point of view. Sharing. Being together. Being grateful. You are sharing hope with me. Thank you! Multitude of choices indeed.
