say it. But at times we do need to speak whether the other person likes it or not. In such situations it’s more likely to go well if you follow the other guidelines covered in this article. Turn Toward Suffering An integral part of healing is letting go. But there’s no letting go until there’s letting in. As James Baldwin once wrote, “Not everything that can be faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed that is not faced.” Suffering is exacerbated by avoidance. Our attempts at self-protection cause us to live in a cramped corner of our lives. We accept a limited perspective of the situation and a restricted view of ourselves. We cling to what’s familiar in order to reassert control, thinking we can fend off what we fear will be intoler- able. When we push back, hoping to get rid of a difficult experience, we’re actu- ally encapsulating it. In short, what we resist persists. Suffering will only be removed by wis- dom cultivated through inquiry, not by drenching it in sunshine or attempting to bury it in a dark basement. Compassion manifests through the medium of fearless receptivity. Love Heals The boundlessness of love is made evi- dent when the veils between this world and the invisible world are thinnest. At birth and death, love can melt division, allowing us to move beyond what we thought possible. When someone is sick, when their body is ravaged by illness, when they can no longer function in their familiar roles, when their identity is shifting daily, many people feel un-loveable. When someone believes they’re beyond love, you cannot convince them to love themselves. But you can show them that they’re loved. When someone is sick or suffering, love them. Just love them. Love them until they can remember to love them- selves again. ♦ 0< -2851(< 7+528*+ 7,0( $ 63,5,78$/ 0(02,5 2) /,)( '($7+ $1' 5(%,57+ %< '(1$ 0(55,$0 A beautiful but complex interplay of actions, desires and thoughts from our past shapes our current life.
