Writing these life events taught me that everything is connected, and that ignoring what causes us to suffer is the same as losing an incredible chance to free ourselves from pain, thus abandoning the path toward happiness. This might sound contradictory. However, I can assure you from my own experiences that there is nothing like examining the causes of pain and fear to free ourselves from them.
We are not our past, our thoughts, our feelings, our genes, or our futures. So who are we underneath it all? Well, I highly suspect that we are joy—a mixture of peace and happiness! It’s my conviction that only the heart—with an undeniable healing force that can turn our stories into “songs” of freedom—can empower us with true forgiveness, joy, and love.
