A traumatic event is an invitation to change

Thomas Moore has written a short piece "The Art of Intelligent Surrender" for the September issue of New Thought Network Connections. Moore says when the wound is deep, the questions must be deep, before concluding,
"A traumatic event invites us to cultivate our relationship to the sacred. It requires our imagination to take a quantum leap. It demands that we move toward a new sense of what it means to be human. We have to surrender to something at some level. But not naively. I think what modernism has done is to separate spirituality from science, our hearts from our minds. It’s time to get over that and be very intelligent about the way we surrender. The truth is so much bigger than either science or religion alone."
Neale Donald Walsch's quote, about letting things fall apart, follows Moore's reflection.
