Quiet Understanding

Psalm 147:3 NKJV ~ He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

“We become truly compassionate when we are wise enough to remain inwardly detached from the melodrama of life. True detachment is the ability to allow everything and everyone to be where they are and who they are. It is an ability to remain centered and grounded whether our advice or offering is received or rejected. Detachment is not indifference to the feelings or sufferings of others. It is the quiet understanding that everything is unfolding exactly as it should.” ~ Ann Mortifee, In Love With The Mystery

    ‘Everything unfolding exactly as it should.’ Such wise, calming words. Not always easy for us to do – detach and trust but at our core, we know it is the path to peace.

    So glad I discovered the path to your door, so to speak, Gina!

    Peace and love and light be with you,

    With gratitude

      And how delighted am I to enjoy your company Lucy. You can brighten my door anytime! πŸ™‚ Yes, in remembering all is unfolding as it should we can increase our inner peace. And feeling and radiating peace is worthy work! It helps us to shine ever more brightly.
      Hugs to you my friend, xo Gina

    This is so beautiful, Gina! Nothing is more true than that.
    The freedom we can experience in the simple act of allowing everything to be, knowing it all is as it should be.
    Such a wise reminder for today!
    Thank you & hugs!

    Gina, your post is perfect for me. I did not realize the weight of something I was carrying and now, that weight is released and I feel so much lighter. Blessings to you for your post. He does heal the brokenhearted. Joanne

    I love this post and the quote, Gina. It’s so right-on! And I so agree – A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures! Hugs, Cathy.

      Thank you Cathy! And yes – that image has been a fave of mine for a while, waiting for just the right time to share it. I enjoyed some big laughs last night, and how well I slept too. My wish for everyone to enjoy such healing. Hugs to you my dear friend! xo Gina

    I totally agree Gina, some take detachment as not caring, when we know that is far from the truth… But we also have to understand we can not carry the weight of everyone else’s problems upon our shoulders either.. That they too have their responsibilities as do we..
    Wise words Gina…. love and Light.. Sue xxx

      So true my friend, we must remember that while we can care and share our concern and love, we cannot shoulder another’s responsibilities and choices. I believe in everyone’s ability to figure it out and get through even the toughest of times. We are strong creatures us Humans, especially when we remember to ask for help. Thank you Sue! Hugs, Gina xox

    This post is so appropriate for me right now. I just finished reading Christina Carson’s book Dying to Know where she exposes this idea quite handily in fiction. Thank you for the reminder.
