Pain is something that I have to shake hands with. I love my dark side as much as my light. My dark, my shadow, my abyss is sometimes a better teacher than the light, and joy, and happiness. I used to make it a habit of only being light. Now I AM. I AM both dark and light. I am both sadness and happy…peace and anger…pain and well.
I am sitting with my anger and hurt and confusion today and not questioning it to shame it. No, absolutely not. I question to learn from it. I question it to truly know it. To FEEL it. If I find my center that is only rooted in myself than I AM present in the knowing that this is a moment and that it will change. What comes next I choose in the present moment. What follows is how I used my energy. How I used my blessing of hurt and pain.
“Hello, Pain. Hello, Anger. Hello, Confusion. Would you like to come in? Would you like to share with me what you have to say?” Intimacy with oneself allows for wisdom to be seen. The wisdom and peace that already resides within, but it cannot be seen nor felt until we are sliced by that which hurts us. The slice is the truth.
