“Today, see if you can stretch your heart and expand your love so that it touches not only those to whom you can give it easily, but also those who need it so much.”
– Daphine Rose Kingma

 

I spent last week teaching the Hoffman Process to 13 men of Cree descent. This was the first time I have taught an all mens group. I am profoundly grateful for this experience.  A week that was filled with laughter, tears, learning and sharing. I learned so much about the Cree culture, their history (especially the residential schools), and the difficulties these men are experiencing in their daily life.

Yes, there are many problems with alcohol and drugs as there are in our culture but what I came to appreciate most was that these men who were once little boys who needed love and a sense of security from their parents just as all children do. When I think about the number of children around the world that feel those same feelings I feel sad. Every child deserves to feel loved and lovable and feel safe in a loving and nurturing home.

In witnessing the power of Spirit and learning to love and forgive one’s self in the Hoffman Process I am constantly reminded as I was last week that love heals all.

The following poem (prayer) by Emmet Fox says it all.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;

No disease that enough love will not heal;

No door that enough love will not open;

No gulf that enough love will not bridge;

No wall that enough love will not throw down;

No sin that enough love will not redeem…

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;

How hopeless the outlook;

How muddled the tangle;

How great the mistake;

A sufficient realisation of love will dissolve it all…

If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.
