It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure....... Joseph Campbell
Are Problems our messages?
I have always believed that the intensity of the whack up side the head that life has to give us in order to get a lesson through to us is in direct proportion to the height and breadth of our sutbborness and illusion of control.
I think problems give us the opportunity to learn something. If we don't get the learning the first time around, we get another chance, and another, and another. If we miss the learning completely the first time, the next whack will be a little harder, and then the next time even harder. I am beginning to think we get many opportunities to learn the lessons we need to learn in this life.
I think these obstacles are gifts for learning. We never really know what we have learned until we have learned it. Then we are ready for the next learning.
The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure..... Joseph Campbell
