Suffering to wisdom to service

There are no shortcuts. There’s just the same eternal three steps process that poets have described from time eternal: from suffering to wisdom to service.*
David Brooks

These words cause me to reflect on difficult experiences within roles that I took on for more than three decades.

I learned to turn towards the pain and to make a place for it within my life so I might learn from it, and when I did this, something quite special happened. I became a dreamwhisperer with something I must share.

*From David Brooks’ The Second Mountain.
