If we give in to the suffering, the energy will sweep us, as it always does, into the spiral, down and out of our presence, out of our now, out into the sea.
If we recognize the cue, the trigger; the initial push toward the edge, we can immediately defuse the noise, and rise above. We can learn, and release, and we can recontextualize the suffering notion into a lesson and lightness. We can grab hold of the weed, and reach down to rip it up by its roots, once and for all . . .
It’s a point of view. It’s a perception, and it will drag along ideologies, beliefs, fears and practiced punishment — our friends guilt, shame and self-loathing.
Or, it’s a healing, empowering, door opening. This is counter to our cultural conditioning, and thus a challenge, until given the chance to become a healthy habit.
love your life,
