Sitting with our sadness ~ heart of humanity

   This   daily om  spoke  to me   on a  deep  deep  level  given  that I understand, experienced and  am in  an on  going  process  and  dance with.. Has  it been  easy no  given that I  have  experienced  multiple losses in  a   year ….I  understood  on a  soul  level    that  the  only  way  out of it  is  and was  through  it… I have had  to have  faith in  what other  tell  me  that it   get easier  with  time..

 I have had  to  learn  to  be  gentle  and  easy on myself… that  being  gentle  and  easy on  myself  is an  on  going  process….that  grief  is  a process  and that  it is   not   done in  a  specific amount  of  time … That  grief   take   as  long  as it  takes  and  to  allow  yourself  that  time….That  seeking out help  and   support  if   feel  you  need  to is important  and good  thing  to  do.. We  do  not  all  grieve in the  same   way or in  the  same  fashion…  that  my  way is  different  then your but  no  more better or  worse..allow  yourself   all  your   feelings in  safe  and   appropriate  ways   and  with appropriate  people..

That praying  and  asking  for help  from  creator   and  angels  helped  me.. That it  takes love,  faith,   courage to  surrender  to  the  process… That being  vulnerable  and  surrendering  to the process  bring  many powerful teachings..

I have   a deepening love  and  compassion then I  did   before  for others  and humanity..  For  me  I have  a  deepening love  and   compassion  for  myself ..  I  have  a  deepening trust in divine  source,  god ,  angels  and  the  universe..

I  know you will move   through it to  the light  of healing  on the  other   side

Sitting with Our Sadness
  The Heart of Humanity

 by Madisyn Taylor

Sitting with our sadness takes the courage to believe that we can bear the pain and we will come out the other side.

The last thing most of us want to hear or think about when we are dealing with profound feelings of sadness is that deep learning can be found in this place. In the midst of our pain, we often feel picked on by life, or overwhelmed by the enormity of some loss, or simply too exhausted to try and examine the situation. We may feel far too disappointed and angry to look for anything resembling a bright side to our suffering. Still, somewhere in our hearts, we know that we will eventually emerge from the depths into the light of greater awareness. Remembering this truth, no matter how elusive it seems, can help.

The other thing we often would rather not hear when we are dealing with intense sadness is that the only way out of it is through it. Sitting with our sadness takes the courage to believe that we can bear the pain and the faith that we will come out the other side. With courage, we can allow ourselves to cycle through the grieving process with full inner permission to experience it. This is a powerful teaching that sadness has to offer us—the ability to surrender and the acceptance of change go hand in hand.

Another teaching of sadness is compassion for others who are in pain, because it is only in feeling our own pain that we can really understand and allow for someone else’s. Sadness is something we all go through, and we all learn from it and are deepened by its presence in our lives. While our own individual experiences of sadness carry with them unique lessons, the implications of what we learn are universal. The wisdom we gain from going through the process of feeling loss, heartbreak, or deep disappointment gives us access to the heart of humanity
