During conversation it was mentioned that there is much suffering, it is seen and heard nearly everywhere we look or go. After years of taking note of this, a question arose in my own mind recently, “What else do you notice?”
Surprised, I considered this question and it became obvious. More than anything else heard and seen is ‘hope’. There is hope outside of pain, and there is hope within it as well.
So much focus is placed on the hurt in life it is difficult to take notice of hope, it is so clear! Sure, I knew there was ‘hope’ about life, but this floored me! Hope is double perceived pain!! Yet the latter steals the show, every time!
In life it is easy to focus on the pain of situations rather than that which has potential to end it. This potential is far more powerful, if it will just be noticed and allowed to show through what has been conditioned into the psyche.
There it was, all this time, and only now do I see it.
