For years I thought I was the only person who couldn’t figure out how to deal with the pain in my life. As I looked around church basement meeting rooms and listened to others talk of serenity, I wanted to stand on a chair and scream, “Just tell me what everyone else knows that I don’t!”
I wish I’d done just that. Instead, I stayed silent and stewed in my anger and pain.
Although I saw the ruby slippers on my feet, I had no idea how to operate them.
Strong and Wise is an owner’s manual for the ruby slippers you were born with. You already have the ability to transform pain. Everyone does. There are no exceptions.
The few times I did ask someone how they made it through the pain, I got answers like, “I did whatever I could” or, “I just kept going.” This added to my frustration. So I’d read another self-help book. The theories sounded great but I found it hard to apply in a life already filled with laundry, little league, single parenting and two jobs.
After a life changing meditation, I saw that the Four Keys were always part of the stories people shared and the books I’d read. I just didn’t see the keys because they were buried in the details or complicated theory.
What are the Four Keys?
SPIRIT: a connection to a higher perspective
SPACE: a connection to the moment
SUPPORT: a connection to others
SELF: a connection within
When these Four Keys are part of your life, you can move powerfully through ANY challenge.
Life challenges can teach or torment. You decide. We all have a well of painful events from which to draw; it’s up to you whether you will draw strength or fear from them. Whether it’s addiction, abuse, tragedy, a terrifying diagnosis or a challenge with a different name it’s not only possible to transform your pain into strength and wisdom, it’s essential. The life you were born to live, fully aware and fortified by each interaction, waits for you.
The miracle is: Pain is temporary, while the power gained by growing through it lasts forever.
