Inspiring words for those of you experiencing some stormy waves today.
“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.
This is a profound act of self love.”
John Welwood from “Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships”
