We’re somewhat readily frustrated by things we can’t explain, but there’s a paradox in a puzzle. Paradoxes appear as contradictions, and much mental illness gifts as a contradiction. Many folks seem to be happy and to’have it all together’ when actually they could feel emptier by the day.
That’s a paradox.
Another paradox is the way the healing opportunity gifts. Whenever we confess the puzzle that we’re overwhelmed by grief or despair or worry and we do not know what to do, there in full view at times is the recovery chance. At the end is the beginning. Opposites are sometimes quite close to one another. But a hardening of our hearts, because we want things in ways which make sense to us, does not do us any favours. We can not just’snap out’ of depression or anxiety.
They’re too true to our expertise for it. Many paradoxes are mysteries that can’t be explained and need only to be accepted. Such things as depression and anxiety demand an effective reaction. And among those powerful answers would be to come to an endorsement of the puzzle before usthis illness might be beyond description. That does not mean we must give up. We don’t have to have the ability to explain everything to comprehend that things are what they are.
Could it be that there’s a paradox in the manner of mental illness? That it’s surrender and release, rather than holding onto our power, that’s the key? When we accept the puzzle, which takes us into release and surrender, our minds and hearts suddenly open to the options for assistance. Our shame is overcome, and we might even understand that there’s nothing to be ashamed about – it is not God’s will that we feel inadequate whatsoever.
It’s actually God’s will that we surrender before him in the presence of knowledge we can’t know. When we give up trying to understand what might be incomprehensible we’re open to God’s leading and the help he can provide through different clinical ways. We should trust those that have a backable credibility for assisting. One of the primary keys of life is that of approval, and, better still, the approval of these mysteries we simply can’t explain.
But approval, as a consequence, is a journey. The more we can take these puzzles that can not be explained, the more we’ve matured. And maturity, since the goal, and expansion, since the procedure; these are truly the real goals of life. When we are stuck inside a hole that’s depression, or we’re always exploiting ourselves at an apprehensive flurry of chaotic head-and-heart-space, aspects of maturity and growth seem beyond us.
As we accept the puzzle we open the door to trust, and it’s hope we will need to gird our way to the future; into a fashion of being that is secure and reliable and dependable. Such hope begets peace. Accepting that occasionally anxiety and depression are puzzles helps a whole lot. In actuality, it can open the door to trust. And though acceptance might be a challenging place to reach, expect is what gets us all the way there along the journey.
