The smallest steps lead to the biggest changes

If you're struggling right now...

I am reminded of the words of Kahlil Gibran.

"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding".

Pain, particularly emotional, is a really scary place to be. We have generally been trained magnificently to avoid feeling it for any length of time, so we sort it. We fix it. A bit like the politicians are trying to do now with national and international economic systems.

But what if Gibran is right? What if pain is merely the shell, that encloses greater wisdom. What if, when we allow the shell to break, and really allow ourselves to experience the pain, our pain can be transformed into something magical?

Would that make it crazy to keep on trying patch up the old shell? Patch it up just so that we can stop feeling the pain of where we are, and the pain that has resulted as a consequence of our past decisions?

Maybe we would all benefit much more by allowing ourselves to experience pain, and through that experience allow our genius to flow?
