Disclaimer: Persistence and Determination can cause headaches, backaches, swelling in the lower extremities, dizziness, flatulence and nausea.
Like all medications we take to heal ourselves, surrender, persistence and determination has it's side effects: PAIN. It doesnt matter if it is the pain caused by the persistence or the pain caused by the surrender, its still pain. A real healing does not cover pain. It gets to the source of the illness.
I learned tonight that to get to any resolution to the two opposing forces of Persistence/Determination and Surrender, you have to grow... but for me personally, first, I have to surrender.
...and on an even more serious note, it seems as though some in the blogosphere just do not learn this and want to wallow in their own self pity. Oh well, good tidings from me that are not appreciated lose their intended meaning. I guess that is really "doing magick" in their opinion?
If you want to learn to be a better human, you must first learn to be a human.
