IN ORDER TO HEAL WE GET TO FEEL
(words by Adam Roa)
These words are ringing truer right now than ever before.
How beautiful that we get to feel what it’s like being ALIVE!
And even when it is so painful, sometimes. Often times, lately.
All the sadness, all the sorrow, all the anguish, all the pain…
Maybe your experience is completely different; maybe it’s filled with joy and pleasure, and that’s completely valid, also.
Each journey is unique, and each psyche gets to unfold in its own due time. Plenty of ebbs and flows for all flavors.
It took millennia of ancestry to bring us to where we are. The timing of what’s unfolding, in comparison, is a blink of an eye.
What’s going on out there is a reflection of what’s unfolding within each of us.
With all its shadows and light, each gives meaning to the other, all coming from the same Source.
AND, we can no longer afford to haul our past, our pain, and our trauma along where we are headed; it is time to compost it all!
It all serves its purpose, until it no longer does. It is time to let go…
This is a one way journey to Oneness.
And while on this journey…
May you see the beauty that is your existence, with all the shadows, for they give meaning to light.
May you choose love over fear, as you feel and heal within and without.
May you remember the ephemeral nature of it all, joy and sorrow, sadness and pleasure, and everything in between.
And may you finally realize the Oneness that we all are, unconditionally, eternally.
