Seeking to live this precious Life of ours within the Now, walking within this Present Moment and experiencing Being can be awfully hard!
Especially when our hearts become wounded by circumstances beyond our control, deeply hurt and heavy with sorrow, grief, and loss.
Heart heaviness coupled with our realistic fear of more pain and unresolved feelings, imposes a strong hold upon our perceptions.
So that most everything we see becomes filtered through the dark lens of sadness, and deep confusion ..as we ask ourselves “Why?”
Being in the Now is a Choice, but how do we act upon that Choice when the origin of our grief is another's actions ..or inactions?
How do we cope with pain and sorrow when we don’t understand the ‘Why??’… Because the one who is causing the pain Refuses to engage with us and explain.
Especially hard as We realize that the one causing us such pain is not evil, just lost in their own Ego-fear story, Stuck in their inability to cope and communicate.
How terribly difficult it is to be the Luminous Beings we are, when we struggle to get past our own deep sorrow and grief as we strive to Understand this lesson we are meant to learn.
Perhaps this is the Lesson, that We are meant to learn from our Response to Losses, from our Inner Work seeking to trust, to find patience, have understanding, and be connected without Knowing.
But perhaps not…. for the challenges we meet upon our Pathway, each situation, each interaction, each wound or sorrow is as Unique to Us as a Sunrise or Sunset, so no standard response ever applies.
This is LIFE, one that we have chosen to LIVE, and it is meant to be a Journey of Discovery, Growth, Change, and Deep Reflection which together may aid us to See and Understand, or simply to Trust.
For It is, What it is! We are now what we are Now…But ...it is ultimately up to each of Us, to decide to Be what We desire to Be, Walking forward, with truth , awareness, and authenticity.
Blessed Be ……

Author's Notes: Watching a loved one suffer through a relationship with a non-communicative badly broken and often pathologically silent partner led me to write "Sadness". For me it is so hard watching and holding space when a dear one is suffering but it is not up to me to fix her troubles nor to carry another's baggage.
