All loss is a doorway. All pain is an entrance. All suffering is a gate. The Universe is large enough to hold my pain and comfort me. I am small enough to be held and cherished, rocked and soothed. I am large enough to hold compassion, large enough to hold peace. I am united with all through my suffering and through my joy. I connect to my emotions and I connect to others through their emotions. I am both the mountain and the cloud. Circumstances vary, situations change, but I remain rooted in the soil of God. The Universe consoles me and makes me whole.
