Knowing Love Works Is the Key to Overcoming Fear, Trauma

MR says: We must learn to fill our hearts with grace and compassion to overcome the grief and pain in the world.

Kathy Headlee Miner firmly believes that everyone in this world loves her.

“Every single human being on the planet, every one, in every country, loves me. Adores me,” she said with a smile. “And I know that I love every single person on the planet in that same way. Some have just forgotten.”

For Miner it has been a long journey of learning, including many humanitarian trips to disaster scenes, nearly two decades of running an orphanage in Zambia, and countless life lessons, but she knows one thing for sure: love works.

“There is but one problem and one solution,” she said in her Education Week presentation, quoting Marianne Williamson’s “A Return to Love.” “All problems are a deviation from love, and all solutions are a return to it.”

Miner, founder of the non-profit Mothers Without Borders, focused her remarks on how to fill one’s heart with grace, compassion, understanding and hope, and use these feelings to overcome grief, anxiety and trauma.
