Your “Chronic” Condition ***
If I were to tell you that your “chronic” condition would be alleviated and your experience would be transformed from pain and confusion into freedom, painlessness and bliss – that you would feel loved beyond your wildest imaginings – you would probably be very pleased to hear this. If I were to tell you that this transformation often occurs through the condition we call “death”, you might get upset.
Ultimately there are no chronic conditions. Sometimes our souls choose certain conditions for their own purpose in a particular embodiment (which may not make any sense to our minds). Other times, we must change our consciousness in time to reverse the deterioration of our bodies, or exit our bodies into the luxurious freedom of Spirit. In the final analysis we can’t lose. It is in the in between stage, when we are in the process of choosing one option or the other, where it often hurts; and the deepest compassion is called for.
The first step is to learn acceptance, to relax and breathe deeply into whatever we are experiencing, because we can never get the message if we are forever running away from it. This is a lesson I come back to…over and over.
