The Silver Lining of Grief

There is nothing quite so unbearable as deep fear and sadness. It can feel like a bottomless experience but I assure you that it is not. There is a silver lining in every experience, even if from our current vantage point we cannot see it. The greatest gifts of fear and sadness is they take us within. Sometimes they are an ungraceful entrance to the inner us, but nonetheless we are forced to enter our own inner worlds because it is only there that we can heal these emotions. When we can learn to embrace our sorrow we will find an immearsurable authenticity which is US. Through this authenticity we can find our empowerment. Sadness is truly a form of gentleness, loneliness is a form of fearlessness and heart break a form of intelligence. Sometimes what we think are the worst most excruciating emotions are actually some of the most beautifiul aspects of who we are. It takes courage to really feel and experience life. Many of us spend time avoiding what we feel. If we try and prevent our stronger emotions we will always be on the defensive. If we do not put up the guard to them then we have nothing to defend. We can just BE. If you let your emotions come, you will see they come to pass. Let them carry you to next level of loving yourself and personal empowerment. Give yourself permission to feel. Have a great Monday!
