Let the Healing Begin!

"The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing. "~Larry Dossey

No doubt that kindness and love can make a huge difference in your life. If you are in a loving, committed relationship - you know better than anyone that love is what keeps you strong.

If that relationship receives a wound, just like the physical body, the emotional wounds need time to heal, and just like the physical body, without proper attention and care - they can become infected and not heal, and eventually could turn toxic and rancid and possibly kill the psyche.

Right now - the egyptian and I have some wounds. They need attention and proper care. The problem is, we need a nurse or a doctor to prescribe us some medicine. Think of the egyptian as an "old school" folk medicine type. I am more into modern science.

Since we have to go a little homeopathic with this relationship, treading carefully and softly - showing love, open communication, etc. is necessary. No one to guide us. That's a tough one.

But the wounds can heal over time. No doubt the scars will remain. Either than can be a reminder of how far we have come and what not to do, or they will be a painful reminder of what lays beneath.

I choose the former. A reminder of what we were able to accomplish.

God willing.

You've taken some hits over the past few months, but you're still standing. You've been told some incredibly hurtful things by the person that you love, but you didn't make rash decisions. Never question your strength, my friend!

"I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable." - Joseph Addison
