“When stricken by terror & darkness – breathelove. Find your joie-de-vivre – against all the odds”.
I saw the movie The Letters last night, about the life of mother Teresa & her struggles with terror & darkness on her saintly path. I had a hard time sitting through the movie, not being sure why. I felt restless and ill @ ease, in a way I feel when I’m triggered by PTSD, or when my truth is being threatened & not clear. When I left the movie I was discussing with my friend what could we learn from this movie. One of the things we mentioned was that ‘when you do God’s work, you have to get out of the way… you can’t make it about you’.
We continued discussing the movie in the car on our way back to Manhattan, and then I let out an uncontrollable scream… I felt a terror in my brain that my friend was-going-2-run-into-the-car-in-front-of-us. I had no choice over my reaction, which triggered a reaction of terror in her brain. She used the breaks to slow down and the car went a little out of control. We got into a short screaming fight about who was wrong & who was right… Feeling defeated & exhausted I started to breathelove into the struggle I had going with her… with myself… & stayed quiet until the end of trip. I found my MOJOE – joie-de-vivre, later at home. This morning, this incident is but a memory without any charge, while last night it could have started world-war-3. -:) I feel grateful 4 breathinglove.
Mother teresa’s path was living & working with the poor, the hungry, the homeless & the sick. She became a saint because she was able to face & embrace her inner struggles with terror & darkness. I believe that at this time in history this ability is available to all of us, through practicing & following our spiritual path.
