Tragedy strikes when you least expect it. And yet, you know it could happen at any time. It is a self-protective mechanism that keeps you from thinking about this or you could not enjoy life. Still, you are surprised when it happens to you. “Why me?” you cry. Please understand, challenges are not punishment. All are loved, all are worthy of great joy, yet what goes up comes down in the human world. You know this, and yet you rebel. That is the tragedy. Acceptance of what is will start you on the path to healing. Acceptance does not mean approval. It merely knocks down the wall that is allowing you to flow back in the opposite direction toward healing. This is a tough assignment you have taken on as a human. May it help to know you are never alone and you are so very loved.
