HNSM 464 - Personal Transformation

3 hours
There is a saying that “change is inevitable; growth is optional,” but how is it that some people are forged by suffering while others become defeated? Does this have something to do with how we see ourselves in relation to our difficulties? Is it a matter of faith? good luck? chance: In looking at what Job, Oedipus, Lear, and the poetry of T.S. Eliot can offer us, perhaps we can fortify ourselves to “suffer” in the real sense of the word and we might say, as the voice in “Ash Wednesday” articulates, “Teach us to care and not to care/Teach us to sit still.”
