Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.
I am stepping out and looking in. That is the only way I know how to manage this. When you are in a pit of grief sometimes you think digging is the only way out, yet you just deepen your dispair with each word, action, and deed. The simple truth above is timeless and honest. They don’t know what they do. Grief is blinding and can be unrelenting. The heaviness causes them to look down and not up, to dig down and not climb up and out into the sunlight.
We are all responsible for our own happiness. Our own healing. Our own path to choose. When we seek our truth and find our way we can then share with others our happiness. If we look to others to solve our problems and lean in to source our answers by trying to control outcomes that are not our own it never works. Happiness can never be authentic if lived vicariously through another.
Face your grief. Allow it to transform you and let it help you to grow. Higher understanding is there waiting on you. Look up and look out. Use the energy you have to climb out not dig deep. The choice is yours. The rewards are great if you make the right one.
