“It is in troubled times that it becomes most important to remember that the wonder of life places the medicine of the Self near where the poison dwells. The gifts always lie near the wounds, the remedies are often made from poisonous substances and love often appears when deep losses become acknowledged.”
Ancient and modern masters alike have shown us that mindfulness is the direct path to emotional healing and spiritual awakening. Dreams teach how to recognize the spiritual lessons of each phase of the Journey and urge us to learn. Relaxing our grip on control, our dreams open us to guidance from the InnerSource. Seeing through the illusion of permanence, they teach us to release attachments and grieve the limitations and losses that life imposes. Mindful of our destructive rush to judgment, our dreams move us to embrace compassion for our own suffering—not just that of others. Finally, dreams teach us mindfulness of our impatience so that we may live more consciously and awake in the present moment.
