FACING THE WALL

Somewhere… Sometime…

Journeys lead to facing the wall (life changing events) usually characterized by pain and suffering and the only effective way of dealing with the wall is to go through the wall.

An American writer and Pulitzer prize winner known for his novels and short stories of the Jewish-American life wrote that, there comes a time in a man’s life when to get where he has to – if there are no doors or windows – he walks through a wall.

There is no point of avoiding such walls, lest we will not arrive to our destination or we might get lost by trying to avoid it. These walls are necessary for our transcendence. We don’t climb upon them. We don’t break those walls. We must go through them. Experience them. And yes, they are pain-full walls.

And such is life. C’est la vie. Life is made up of many heart breaks, many fallings and failings amidst all of our growing and achieving.

Julian Norwich said: First there is the fall then we recover from the fall. Both are the mercy of God.

A beautiful line from the song, Tell Your Heart to Beat Again, describes that facing the wall of yesteryears is like a closing door. You have gone through it. You are victorious and are now free.

Yesterday’s a closing door and you don’t live there anymore so say goodbye to where you have been and tell your heart to beat again.
