✨Reading & Pondering Today 1-7✨

imageWe are not machines. We are human beings. And when we’re grieving, we’re moving through a profound and significant experience. A sorrowful time can be a sacred time. Respecting the heart when we are in pain, seeking to walk through the experience very close to God, doesn’t immediately make us less sad; but it makes our sadness begin to make sense.

Dwelling in a sacred universe gives us a different emotional perspective, one in which life is ascribed a deeper meaning because we choose to see it from a deeper perspective. We choose to see all things, even our suffering, within the context of how deeply we might learn to love.

No matter what happens in life, it is our choice whether to play it deep or to play it shallow. And whenever we play life deep, we feel our feelings deeply. Times of great sadness might open up painful wounds that were buried before. They might be wounds that are not just ours, but generational or societal.

Suffering through them with our hearts wide open is not for sissies, but for seekers. Those wounds were keeping us from being who we’re capable of being, and their coming up to be healed is part of our journey to enlightenment.”

Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “Tears to Triumph.”
