You will deceive yourself into believing that if the people, circumstances and events had been different your pain would not excist. But the deeper truth is that the situation which brought about your pain was simply the form in which you came in touch with the human condition of suffering. Your pain is the concrete way in which you participate in the pain of humanity. Paradoxically, therefore, healing means moving from your pain into the pain. When you keep focussing, on the specific circumstances of your pain, you easy become angry, resentful and very vindictive. You are inclined. Every time you can shift your attention away from the eternal situation, that caused your pain and focus on the pain of humanity in which you participate your suffering becomes easier to bear. It become a ‘light burden” and an easy yoke to do something about the eternals of your pain in order to relieve it.
But real healing comes from realizing that your own particular pain is a share of humanity’s pain.
Henri Nouwen
