Interesting thing about suffering: The Good Book says we need it !!! ( Hebrews 12: 5-7)

DSC00227Not meaning to depress you on a Monday morning,  apparently it is easier to take the ‘hard knocks of life on the chin’,  if we believe,  suffering helps us to become enlightened!

Viktor Frankl ( 1905- 1997 )Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry  developed a  therapy for wonderful mental health, which he called ‘Logotherapy‘,  after  his survival in the concentration camps of  Auschwitz and Dachau.In his book Man’s Search for Meaning he describes the atrocities that he experienced in the camps and  goes on to explain that ‘if  there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering’ He also said, ‘ Those who have a why to live, can bear almost any how

Something  serious for us to think about  on this  wet Monday Morning.

Have a great one you guys

Hugs and love,

Love this poem by Wendell Berry, so full of hope and light.

“When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

~Wendell Berry

This poem was given to me by a special soul friend.

It is written for sharing

Re post it  someone  today, least we forget  that  Love beats  silently underneath the noise and confusion of everyday life.

Hugs and Love

Good Morning Galway, my beautiful city, congratulations. You are buzzing with a glow of artistic favour. The Galway International Arts Festival is in full swing. We have won the bid to become the European Capital of Culture in 2020. All things are possible when we believe. All visions are realised in moments of calm. As the good book says ‘Wise are those who learn through silence; learn then to listen well..( Psalm 132)
