Our days take on the timbre of our inner state of being. If we are feeling hurts and pains – physical, emotional, or spiritual – the whole day can feel hurt-full. Interactions with others can feel hurtful. Our very thoughts can be hurtful – towards ourselves and others. And just being alone can turn into a stew of hurt, anger, and remorse.
It’s ok to feel hurt! We don’t need to talk our way out of it, or justify why we feel hurt. Often, it doesn’t even do much good to “figure out why.” Simply acknowledging that we feel hurt, is a powerful and healing thing!
Give yourself some space and safety to see and experience that you are feeling hurt.
Bring your awareness into your heart. Breathing in, see your heart filling in bright, sparkling light. Breathing out, this light expands through every cell of your Be-ing. Breathing in, your heartlight grows ever brighter. Breathing out, your heartlight expands. Allow yourself to see how you feel hurt. Let the hurt come up, and shine your heartlight on it: and just see it. Feel it. Be with it. No need to get caught up in the story of “why” you feel hurt, or assigning blame, or even in thinking how to stop it: just see it, feel it, and keep on breathing.
During this process you may become aware of more of the stories and situations surrounding this hurt. Don’t let your self get caught up in those – just notice what ever comes up, shine your heartlight on it, and let it float on…
THAT’S IT. Just notice. You’re not going to try to change anything right now. You are simply bringing the hurt you are experiencing into your full awareness, into your heartlight. Each time you notice a hurt, gently take another deep, deep breath into your heart. Follow with a slow and steady breath out. And keep moving on with your day. And keep shining your heartlight. Ready. Steady. Go!
You have to see and meet God in this life.
Don’t let this life go by
and miss discovering the Supreme One.
You will find him inside as your constant being.
Beloved, take a deep breath in. Rest. Let a deep breath out. Rest.
Keep breathing, slowly – – pushing your belly out as you breathe in, filling your lungs deeply. Rest on the full in-breath for a moment. And deep, slow breath out, as your belly contracts.
Rest in that moment of emptiness. And then inhale-exhale again. Three or four deep breaths. Then let your breaths relax into their own rhythm.
Bring your awareness to your heart. Bring your awareness to the Light of Divine Grace.
And notice how you are feeling ~ everything you are experiencing. Keep breathing. Keep present with Divine Grace. And keep experiencing.
If thoughts arise, let them pass. Blow them away on your out breath.
The most important thing you can do right now is experience. Without Labels. Without trying to sort out reasons. SIMPLY… Feel what you are feeling. And keep breathing.
As emotions arise – there is nothing to “do” with them – simply *be* with them, experience them. Refrain from labeling them. And breathe in the Light of Grace.
As this process unfolds, a sense of quiet begins to grow. Subtly, at first. Notice as it grows and spreads throughout your Being.
It is from this quiet, this peace, that clarity of response arises.
Take a deep breath in, and a deep breath out, and gently, heartfully, go forth into the day in the absolute strength of the Light of Grace.
In life, take the attitude that everything
is already as it should be, just as it is,
and find fault with nothing,
but respond to everything naturally.
There is no need to identify yourself
as any particular person.
Just stay aware and conscious of your awareness
and witness the marvellousness of life.
