Feeling is Healing
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous change.
Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
We all know the expression go with the flow all too well and intuitively we understand that resisting change doesn't help. Change affects us, always, one way or another, and feelings are a natural response. Pretending not to feel anything is a way to bypass what's really going on beneath the surface that deserves our loving attention. This, what some people call 'spiritual bypassing', will in the long run always turn out to be something we need to face, until we do, impacts our everyday experience of life.
So if 'not resisting' does not mean 'not feeling' or 'not being affected', what does it mean?
In our opinion it means: FEEL!
Feel it all, in all your cells, fibres, pores, in your whole being. Honor the feeling as the natural way to process life as the human being that you are currently. Allowing yourself to totally feel is the so called fire of transformation, it's energy moving, shifting to a new level of vibration, it's alchemy. Why would you resist that?
The problem often is that we have not been raised that gives space to this proces feelings and herein lies, the power of a spiritual practice. Your practice can become your altar on which you offer all your feelings, consciously creating space for them, fanning the flames of your own growth.
