BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, April 7th, 2020 by Deborah Denicola in THE FUTURE THAT BROUGHT HER HERE

“Rumi says, “Why use bitter soup for healing when sweet water is everywhere?” We have created bitter soup by thinking that the machinations of the world are beyond our control. We can make sweet water in our own lives by faith alone, by accepting our “bitter water” in peace and then imagining sweeter outcomes. By visualizing and asserting them as already manifested, these outcomes can come into being. Poppycock! the minions cry. Nonetheless, we must undo our neural pathways and create new ones by sticking with a risky faith and giving all our heart to it in order to see it is true; it will only become true as we recreate our beliefs.”

“It costs so much to be a full human being…One has to abandon altogether the search for security, reach out to the risk of living with both arms…one has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.”
