Whatever you resist, persists. The healing route is the opposite of resistance, it is acceptance. The way out is the way through: to open up, release our feelings, accept and let them go. To face reality as it is, which is much easier with love in our hearts rather than negative interpretations and self-defeating beliefs. As Buddha stated, “Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.” Fortunately love is our true nature and is unlimited in supply.
Like the philosopher said, to "know yourself" is the greatest lesson. By learning compassion for ourselves we are then prepared to offer it to others.
And the other side of the coin: "He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has," said Epictetus. Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.
As Mary Anne Radmacher says, "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow'."
And as Joseph Campbell said, "When you follow your bliss, doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors; and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else."
In releasing we learn to accept emotions, to experience them (in place of suppressing) and to realize they are our creation. Then when it is appropriate, we can let them go. This is quite different from identifying with emotions and embracing them, feeling "I am angry" integral with the ego. There's no mindfulness in that and it is far from awareness of our true self, that is always loving.
It goes without saying that life can be hectic. Perhaps you fall into this ‘harried’ group, and perhaps you have noticed those few among us who seem completely unfazed by traffic jams, schedules and daily life in general. How can these people feel relaxed, stress-free and happy - even in the midst of all of this chaos? Two words: Inner peace. Continues...
