Overcoming adversity and accepting delays or what appear to be set backs in our lives. That was a topic of conversation on one of my flights today.
My answer to this woman was that we can chose in the moment to be in fear and see whatever it is as an obsticle or we can look at it a divine preparation time. Seeing everything through a heart of love - through G-d's heart - gives us the ability to not only live in the moment, but to accept these challenges as a tool for building compassion. I reminded her that the quickest way to heal a negative situation is to pray for the other person with love in our hearts. As difficult as that might sound it works amazingly quickly.
