Inspiring words for those of you experiencing some stormy waves today.

stormy waves

“Just as the depth and stillness of the ocean lie hidden beneath the stormy waves on its surface, so the power of your essential nature lies concealed behind all of your turbulent feelings.

Struggling against your feelings only keeps you tossing around on the stormy surface of yourself, disconnected from the larger being.

Tossing in the waves, keeps you from going beneath them and accessing the power, warmth, and openness of the heart.

Letting yourself have your experience, by contrast, allows you to ride or surf the waves instead of being carried away by them.

In moments of allowing and opening to your experience, you are – you are there for yourself. You are saying yes to yourself as you are, as you are feeling right now.

self love in the waves of life

This is a profound act of self love.”

John Welwood from “Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships”

    As always, love this post Val and in all seriousness, when I’ve allowed myself to feel what I’m feeling, the panic seems to go away…

    • Haha Diana. May the flow be with you!
      And yes, something magical happens when we let ourselves feel the experience … it transforms from our fearful thinking into a healing energy that is hard to describe.
