“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the loss and sorrow. A part of us has been taught that this is somehow wrong, and we create stories to help us cope. We may get angry, resentful or vow never to put ourselves in that situation again. We resist these powerful feelings and try to escape them.
Yet it only takes a moment, a pause and perhaps a deep releasing sigh, to see that the source of this deep feeling is love.
Sorrow and love are interwoven because the two are always connected.
With our hearts open, there is yearning and longing. There is love here.
When we recognize that what we feel sad about, is really an opening of the heart, we can begin to smile in the knowing that we are alive and loving beings.
This is what makes us special.
