Understanding heals

With love comes understanding. With understanding comes patience. And then time stops and everything is now. Old wounds influence our moods and behavior as if they were inflicted yesterday. Sometimes their power even increases with time. Understanding can help to heal these old traumas.

Understanding brings a lessening of fear. Our fears are often of events that have already happened earlier. We project these fears into the future, but what we fear is actually finished. All we have to do is to remember it is in the past. It is understanding that heals, and through understanding, love is eternally renewed and manifested.
