Space For The Pain.
Funny thing how the heart works. And how the mind works to “protect” the heart from pain and in doing so – damages at the same time. We fight against heartbreak even on the most simple levels, and yet in the healing of inevitable heartache, if we allow it, there is a new space – a space for the pain. Not the searing knife-like spasms of grief, but the more nuanced pangs of loss and letting go. The mind no longer fights the pain, and thus releases the need for an ever open wound.
“What you resist persists.” “When you yield you heal.”
That’s what I mean by “space for the pain.” The pain does not go away completely, however it is like a wise elder who nods with a knowing that it’s all part of the plan. It’s all for the good.
