Peace Beyond Our Suffering- A Timely Communication
Those last 3 blog entries How do I pray when feeling ill have answered a question I was going to ask.
My mother, aged 80 is continually asking us "When will my legs get better?"
And although i try to give the objective viewpoint, namely that for many elderly people the degree of mobility and independence she has would be greatly appreciated, she cannot seem to shift this "Why me?" mindset.
You must have found those initial years of living with disability Katherine oh so difficult to come to terms with intellectually and emotionally.
For someone who is fit and active physically to contemplate disability and being bedbound must have been frustrating and painful.
The thoughts, words and intention of retaining self-belief and God-belief have to be encouraged and dwelt on to wring the most light and life affirmative inspiration out of a desperate situation.
Thank you Katherine ~ Your life and hopeful messages lift us from depression to hope, from discouragement to a new enthusiasm and from doubt to a galvanised faith in what is possible now in the creation of energy, strength and vitality.
These qualities spring from our soul, through our spirit which means, though physically and mentally we are challenged, spiritually we can actually become more determined, stronger and reach a level of peace beyond our suffering.

Thank you Shaun. These are inspiring words.
There is indeed a level of peace beyond our suffering, in which we witness the suffering and yet know that we are more.
And yes, it was so so difficult to become disabled. I hold a place of knowing the wholeness of all who visit here.
