As we are consumed by the day to day activities and experiences when someone in our family has cancer, we sometimes can’t see or feel what is really happening around us or within us. Cancer support is critical through this challenging time.
In My Sister’s Keeper, each individual of Ann’s family was experiencing their own loss and with that all the emotions that accompany it. Even as parent’s, they couldn’t really see what was happening to Anna and the internal turmoil and external pain she was trying so hard to cope with. Their only son was lost and forgotten and living in a world unknown to them. Kate was consumed with pain and guilt for what she was causing her family and especially her sister, Anna. They were so focussed on Kate and keeping her alive, at all costs, they were unaware of the real “dying” all around them.
“My Sister’s Keeper” is an exquisite example of humanity’s desperate attempt to save their physical life.
Every human soul comes to this earth with a purpose, often unaware of what that purpose is, but deep down there is a tugging of the human mind and body to follow that journey from within.
What is your purpose?
Each person’s purpose is unique to them and I believe agree to long before they enter the human body. Our purpose sets the course of our life and all others that we touch. I believe we come together in our relationships for the purpose of assisting ourselves and others to really remember who we are and why we have come here. We are waking each other up to our true essence.
Each of our experiences are moments for us to learn and remember the God within and the love and power we really are.
One Flaw In Women
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they wan t to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Once we truly love ourselves unconditionally, we can then love others.
What does that mean? “I love others! Even though I may not always love me.”
We are born into this universe from one source, I call God. (Others use different words meaning the same thing) We all come from the same source. If we all come from the same source, we must be part of the whole, part of God. If we are all part of God, we are all part of each other too. This is where the wise teachers of the past, refer to for example, “We are all part of the body of Christ”. Or ”We are all ONE”.
We are all one if we came from the same ONE!
So how can we truly love another, child, friend, sister, mom……………….
If we don’t love ourselves………………….
It is the same thing, we are the same thing…….We are all one!
I have been learning unconditional love at another level. I believe as we travel this journey called life, we have infinite opportunities to grow, learn and be all we came here to be. There have been times that I have said, “great! I got that lesson from that experience, now I can check it off my list.” Only to see it come back in another experience, in a different form and another level.
At times we take the opportunity to grow from the experience and really experience the essence of who we are and the love we are. These are the times we let go of the past and use it to make room for something else greater to come into our lives. This is when everything clicks and it feels easy. Life flows and we feel happy, centered and balanced.
