As I read my friends’ blogs this morning, I find that for many of them, something is going on that is bringing up shadows from their past. Terrill for one, writes about her dilemma as a creative person, regarding whether to work with the shadows now or later in her art and writing. Another blogger has fears of the past coming back to haunt her again.
I try to believe as my mother taught me, that you only have to deal with one day’s worth of problems in any one day. That way we don’t get overwhelmed. Not that easy to do? I agree.
If we see our lives as moving through a spiral path, we see that we encounter the same terrain again and again. Each time we pass through, we have more experience with which to relate to it. Let’s not take on the shadows before we’re ready for them. We’ll know when that is.
