Impulse To Change

How do we support others who are suffering? Through love, listening and understanding.

Pain generates the impulse to change. Or aim in supporting someone is not to get rid of their pain and suffering, instead, we want to assist them to understand what the pain is trying to teach them, to find meaning in their distress.

Often, all we need do is be fully present to them. It also helps to be present to our own experience and genuine in our feelings. Living our own truth helps create the space for the other person to live theirs.

The purpose of therapy is not to remove suffering but to move through it to an enlarged consciousness that can sustain the polarity of painful opposites.

We support through love and understanding. The first duty of love is to listen and with the gift of listening comes the gift of healing.

Wishing you all a relaxing week end
