Healing Is a Process

January 7th, 2014
Our own experience with loneliness, depression & fear can become a gift 
for others as well as ourselves, especially when we have learned to receive and give ourselves good care. 
As long as our wounds are open and bleeding,
we scare others away. 
But after we have carefully tended to our wounds,
they no longer frighten us or others.
When we experience the healing presence;
we can discover our own gifts of healing. 
Then our wounds allow us to enter into a deep
solidarity with our wounded brothers and sisters.
