I’ve never regretted my journey to drug freedom and now beyond, because even though I am sick I now have access to a joy I never had on drugs. I have access to the full spectrum of the emotions that make us human and it took that access to heal on a foundational level. And from access to that full spectrum I’ve found a sort of equanimity I never knew even as I still suffer serious illness. For that I celebrate as I continue to heal.
We are made for Light. There are moments of perfect happiness, moments when one feels so well, at peace with oneself and with others. Such moments of fullness exist. They are rare, perhaps, but we have all experienced them. Each of us is capable of living such moments. They continue to send signals to us even when we are in despair.
