You will hear difficult stories. People recovering from sex and drug addiction. People who were raped. People who are just getting older. People who know they have to change their lives but are frightened to do so. Every day will be full of these stories. If you can come from healing and love, then these experiences will be transformed to experiences that will enrich you. You will be engaged in turning difficulty into intimacy and light. This is eros. In fact, it is your connection to eros, to goodness and joy and beauty, that will do the transforming. Most of us, to recover from something, can only solve the dilemma by moving to what energizes us, toward what we believe in and what will feed us in a deep way. So be that person who lights the way for others, and for yourself, when you are low and need some guidance.
