Things I Love 7.9

This is the lesson for me recently, to just let things be.  

Just feeling generally overwhelmed, and sensitive, and listening to heart chakra binaural beats all day, and learning to just let things lie sometimes. This has been a point for me where I am able do see just how much I don't understand, and have a million and a half questions. I really think this is the answer though. The answer to what? I don't know. A lot of things.

Just to soften and let it be what it is. Joyous, painful, or otherwise. I've learned a lot more about this by reading Micheal Singer's book The Untethered Soul. He talks a lot about how being fully present for life has so much to do with our willingness to feel pain. This has served me well. Not hiding away parts of myself to keep them safe, and be willing to deal with things that make me uncomfortable, instead of avoiding them. And if you think about it, so often this is what love is about, sitting with the painful parts. The parts you didn't account for, but are willing to scale through because this is the place where bonding, grounding, and a better understanding of yourself all come together. 

Just being willing to deal with whatever comes up. I think that's what meditation is about. I think I've been doing it wrong this whole time, but this time with less resistance. Live and learn.
