My last journey through crisis was messy. I was blindsided, and up until then I’d managed most of my life with two qualities: logic and action.
Both were of very little use at the bedside of an ailing life-partner. Logic didn’t help the hole in my center, and no action could retrieve the past.
It went into a tail-spin of frenetic anxiety, grief, and despair, which only amplified the terror of the time. Months later, I began to grasp the only things that really help in times like these: trust, surrender, faith, compassion, and love—the seeds of life.
This time, I’m not living from the concrete box of logic and action. I’m doing what needs to be done, using my intellect where required, and repeatedly turning to the highest qualities of life.
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache
carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.” —Napoleon Hill
