Seeing beneath the surface heals

The long-term healing solution may lie in confronting needs and issues that are not readily apparent.

I once took a course in oceanography and recall how impressed I was with the view of the ocean floor. There were mountains and valleys that existed unseen under the surface of the water. 

This illustration has great significance for our lives. It’s easy to get caught up in the symptoms of challenging circumstances—that is to say, what is merely visible on the surface—whereas the long-term healing solution may lie in recognizing and handling what’s behind and below problems, confronting needs and issues that are not readily apparent.
