When we stand in front of the issues we are facing at this moment in our lives, we are usually overwhelmed by the darkness of it. We can’t see the purpose of the suffering, especially when it comes to perpetrator and victim relation. It is hard to see it from the soul level and see the deeper meaning that we are just all in service to a higher purpose of the divine.

We tend to blame, put guilt and shame on the perpetrator. After all, it is all their fault, isn’t it?

Bow to the mystery and the vastness of the divine source. This is the only way to get to the entrance of seeing all mystery.
