Shusara begins tonight’s session with looking at how, even in a world where “bad” things happen, the gift…the love…is always present. The circumstances and stories that bring pain hold the greatest value for the seeker, because the key to unlocking the pain exists within the pain, itself. And the pain which exists in the story is held in place by the beliefs which underlie it. Beliefs are learned and there is innocence underneath them. It is compassion which allows us to see beyond a person’s actions, justified by their beliefs, to the innocence beneath the patterning.
