Key 5 – Pain

Experiencing pain together can be a profoundly bonding experience.  Even something as simple as camping or traveling together can produce some uncomfortable moments than can serve as bonding experiences. More serious pain, the tragedies and the griefs we all encounter, can spark friendships and cement permanent bonds when we share that pain together. Often it’s in our deepest pain and grief that we recognize and appreciate the beauty of friendship. 

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

— Rumi 

Thought to ponder: Who is in pain, this very day, that I could reach out to and share their pain?
