As she walked purposefully up to me, I couldn't tell if she was upset or happy. Her mixed emotions were evident. She smiled, her excitable energy matched by her enthusiasm to relay a message she wanted me to hear, but there was also pain, tears brimmed in her eyes, ready to overflow as the words poured out.
"I have to thank you. I cannot quite believe it. I've been in pain, in so much discomfort and pain for so long...and I just can't believe it. I'm in my seventies, I've been living with this itchy, awful rash for so long, I've struggled to sleep and my joints have been so painful..."
As she recounted the struggles she'd experienced for the last twenty years, her emotions were overwhelming. The pain and suffering she'd lived with had become an acceptance, something that had worn her down and had fundamentally affected who she had become. Except now, she was emerging as the person she had once been, with a new lease of life.
"I haven't felt like this in years....YEARS! I just didn't think it was possible, The rash has gone. No more itching. I'm sleeping." The pain in her voice was replaced by an excitement only those who have suffered for so long and found relief can really relate to. Nothing, no material possession or monetary value can be placed on regaining a part of your health you thought you'd lost forever.
She looked me square in the eye. "Thank you." I swallowed down my tears. I could feel the emotions welling up inside.
I replied, "you are the reason...." I tried to speak but my emotions were getting the better of me.
"You are the reason I do what I do. To help people see that there is a way to help alleviate their suffering."
I have been contemplating my 'why' recently. A succinct and short reason why I do what I do. Why Sow & Arrow exists...why I put so much work into the book, and into the courses. The reason is to help someone change the course of their life, their experience of life, the joy they feel instead of pain and suffering.
