Joseph Campbell once said that where we stumble is where our treasure lies, meaning that often what we take for a mistake, accident or unfor-tunate situation is really the way in which a deeper spiritual realization occurs. Campbell cites a story in the Arabian Nights about a young farmer who is plowing a field. His plow becomes stuck, and when he reaches down to see what stopped it, he discovers a valuable ring; digging further, he discovers a vast treasure of precious jewels. Sometimes when we seem to be stopped in our tracks, and we see no way out, we are forced to go deeper into ourselves until we discover a solution so unexpected and so beyond what we imagined that the solution produces riches of undreamt of joy and creativity.
