MY VIEW OF "SO MUCH UNFAIRNESS OF THINGS"
"No coward soul is mine, No trembler in the world's storm troubled sphere,
For those who suffer and have ever asked themselves the question, "Why
me? Why have I been hurt, abused, neglected, abandoned…?", the answer
Take those who are hurt or abused. The blows they take from others beat them down until they retreat deep within themselves. I know - for in a past life, I was a deformed, hunch-backed cripple. People jeered at me and threw stones and garbage on me as I passed by. Yet, in that life, I learned to be like the piece of coal that, when pressured, becomes as hard, strong, and clear as a diamond.To learn to love yourself, to honor yourself, to embrace your own uniqueness are the greatest gifts than you can receive… for they are the only gifts that truly last. For they are the only ones you can take with you as you journey through the universe and find your own way back home to God.Those hurt and abused who have developed diamond-like inner strength know this to be true.Take those who are neglected or abandoned. The despair and aloneness they feel make it seem like it is always darkest night even when the sun is shining brightly. I know - for in a past life, I was left to rot alone for years in a prison cell, even the jailors who fed me were forbidden to speak to me. Yet, in that life, I learned to reach deep inside my own mind and heart to discover their hidden wonders.Those neglected and abandoned who have made the journey of self discovery know this to be true.Take those who are orphaned. The loss of the strength, comfort, guidance, and love that a parent provides is truly devastating and stays with one their entire lives. I know - for in a past life, I was once an orphan. Yet, in that life, I learned to become my own parent, to love myself unconditionally, to embrace who I had been completely… So much so that nothing can shake my inner foundation now.Those orphaned who have learned to love and parent themselves know this to be true.
