Hi All....I read a book many years ago called "Kitchen Table Wisdom" and there is a part in this book I wanted to share with all of you b/c I think it's pertinent to the understanding of our coaddiction etc...

"The Buddhists talk about Samsara, the world of illusion.
It is the place that most of us live. Mistaking illusion for reality is said to be the root cause of all of our suffering.
Yet in some immensely elegant way suffering itself can release us from the illusion.

Often in times of crisis when we reach for what we have considering our strength we stumble on our wholeness and our real power.
What has been fixed is always less strong than what is whole.
In a time of real need we may remember and free ourselves.

Integrity usually comes to people slowly and takes them unaware, as part of a natural process of maturing or through the need to be there for someone else who is counting on them. But it can appear full-blown at times of crisis or loss"

Samsara is the cycle of death and re-birth.

This is very interesting theme. I have a male friend who is budhhist, perhaps I can discuss it with him.

Thank you PS for sharing.

(((Hugs)))
