I want you to think back to a really bad funk you have been in of late. One where you were gripped with negativity, or rage, or frustration. Mine are usually a combination of both. Which can lead to despair and overwhelm. But it always passes. It always passes, the positive, the negative, always shifting, and moving.
For there is a lot to be upset about right now in the world, and I am finding the media a source of constant angst for me. Looking away and pretending the state of the world is other than can also be unhelpful and unrealistic. For we want truth, not ignorance, so pretending it’s not happening won’t work. So then what?
It’s time to hold the opposites together. For there is horror and there is beauty. Anger and love. It’s a full spectrum human experience – but love is the truth of us. The rest is just a state of mind. So recognising that our feelings and our thoughts keep moving and passing us by, understanding that the truth of us sits behind these thoughts and feelings, larger than bigger than them, empowers us when we get stuck in a bad state of mind. For this too, shall pass.
Sent with love,
