I sit today listening to the rain pouring outside the window and am reminded of the beautiful cleansing energy of tears. The raindrops falling so sweetly as they nourish the thirsty Earth. I am transported back to a reading from a dear friend.
"My dear Sarah, its time for you to perceive your tears as being precious. They are watering the tender shoots of new life coming up all around you. Your tears have delivered you to know what love is, and what love is not."
Her words reverberated throughout my entire being. I felt the tears slide down my cheeks and drop onto my shirt. So many years I fought this natural reaction because of other's comments to me, but in this moment I felt the preciousness of my tears and I welcomed this old friend. I deleted these old stories and received the gift.
My beautiful friends, how are your tears watering the tender shoots of new life? When was the last time you cried for joy, or sobbed in sorrow? We are tender and strong, glorious and in progress, full and empty, heavenly and earthly. When we allow ourselves to be present to the magnificence of life, we open ourselves up to a range of emotions. A wise friend often shares, "If you can't feel it, you can't heal it."
May You Sweetly Seek:)
