From the Rescuers Down Under, a doctor pronounces, “you must relax” while trying to treat Wilber. Wilber replies, “Relax? I am relaxed!” clearly a sarcastic response, “If I were any mope relaxed, Id be dead”. The scene is funny and captures how we feel while panicking whether or not what we are facing is life threatening. Our instinct is to fight back and not to relax. And yet more often than not, our attempts to fight back only amplify anxiety. If we allow ourselves to experience the pain and lift it up to God, something amazing happens. A peace we may not understand will surround us.
