So, why is drama so magnetic? The attention feels good but the downside of burning loved ones out outweighs the good. Besides, showing courage of being able to overcome not only the illness/problem, but also to do it with grace and dignity is much more attractive, to ourselves and others. In addition, from a cosmic point of view, courage, overcoming adversity, and positive thinking adds to the positive universal consciousness so desperately needed in this world; drama detracts.
Again, from the Teacher's view, I wonder how we can get the point across to others that it best serves them to choose dharma over drama after trauma? Here's what I came up with: Model it, talk about it, write about it, and develop classes around it. Whatever it takes to get the word out. Dharma is cool karma. Peace to all, Deb B.
