We are all looking for resonance. That feeling of, “Yes! That’s it exactly.” A subtle vibration, like that of a tuning fork, that lets us recognize ourselves in the Other. So that we feel seen, and to give our experiences meaning. It’s not our suffering that breaks us, but our belief that it serves no purpose, that it helps no one, least of all ourselves. But then something comes along–a song, a movie, a conversation–and we see that our experiences aren’t separate from the whole. We are part of one big prism being cast by Life itself and with that knowledge, with that exquisite resonance of our most tender places, we are healed.
