“We feel conflict.
The conflict we feel is not a problem.
It is a messenger.
We do not need help; we need only understand that there is no choice in life but to follow the conflict where it takes us.
If we are prepared to go there, we may discover the actuality of self and the nature of our sorrow.”
~ Steven Harrison
This is a message I wish I had heard many years ago. Although, to be frank, I probably would not have been ready to hear it.
All emotions are messengers and reflect a deeper state of our being. As long as we avoid looking at the uncomfortable ones we limit our growth and ability to connect fully to our higher Self and life.
Our ego mind will tell us we shouldn’t be feeling these feelings and judge us for not being better than this.
Yet it isn’t a problem. There is no better or worse.
Let go of judging how you think you should be.
Allow your mind to be open to it. And then your heart.
Be kind and compassionate towards yourself, until you are ready to follow where the feeling takes you.
Beyond conflict is love.
