I recently met a Woman who Shared an Incredible Personal Story. Over 30 years ago she was driving with her two Children. She came to the stop, looked both ways and pulled out. No one saw it coming. Her Son was killed and both she and her Daughter horribly Injured.She went mad with Grief for a while and, understandably, was heavily medicated. Were it not for her Daughter she would have joined her Son
Years passed and She Buried All her Mother Grief Deep in her Heart. The Blame is always There...right Below the Surface. She stopped doing all the Things she Loves like Painting.
She paused. "I want to Tell you Somethinge Else. It's Strange..."
First she Recalled in her Grief going Outside before the Funeral...Numb and Angry. She looked up at the Sky and Roared with Grief and Anger at God. Then, she said, this Beautiful White Light surrounded Her.
"Wait...I have one more Thing..."
She told me she Remembered before She was Born. There were two Angels with Her: Comfort and Sorrow. They told Her she didn't have to Go. She asked Them if it was going to be Hard. They Both nodded Solemnly but again reminded Her it was Her Choice. "Remember THIS" they said.
I asked her, "What about the Light?" She looked at me and said slowly "I used to Think God was Telling Me I was Weak." Me: "And now?"
"God was giving Me Strength and Comfort."
And...what about THIS?
"Comfort and Sorrow. I forgot Comfort and Sorrow."
She is going to start Painting again and she Promised me her First Picture. She had Never Shared Her Story Before...THAT makes me Smile.
We all Compartmentalize Ourselves. Who REALLY Knows ALL of You?
I Love to Travel. I Love the 20 Minute Conversation with a perfect Stranger. I often Feel they Know Me Better than People I have Known All My Life.
In the Intro to A Gardener for Humanity I Share how throughout my Life complete Strangers will Share their most Sacred Wounding Story. I am always Honored & Humbled. Normally I do not Share the Story but the Lesson. These Wounding Stories are Archetypal with Themes as Old as Time.
Recently a Stranger Shared with Me what I Consider to Be the Most Powerful Sacred Story I have ever Heard. So for the 1st Time I Asked Permission to Share because the World should Know THIS. Enjoy COMFORT & SORROW.
