Finding the Love Hidden Within Our Pain for the World: Challenge #7


Summary of Spiral Journey Topic/Dimension/Challenge 7

How can I/we learn to accept and honor my/our pain for the suffering of the world as a deep expression of my/our love for the world, rather than as a mistake or a problem to be gotten rid of? (This rediscovered love can empower us to become heroic protectors of Life.)

From Gretchen Sleicher’s “Songs for The Great Turning” web site

To acknowledge in song our pain for the world – the suffering of myriad beings and the destruction of the natural world – engenders a shared experience that breaks us out of denial. It lets us know we are not alone or “crazy” in these feelings, which arise from our caring and connectedness. Allowing them to surface in song is collective healing.
