We tend to look outward first in trying to get over something that we can't seem to get over. If that doesn’t work we look in the mirror. If that doesn’t work we look inward until we get past the harsh “Win a few, lose a few” attitude to compassion. Moved by this inward compassion the darkest clouds open up. The ways' words are often in the Word's way. The wayward is inward. He came to save the wayward within.
Overcome! is to come over. Cross! The words of the cross are compassion and patience, first toward myself as the least of these.
To begin again within is to step into what had already begun.
