Moving towards the edges
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear" - this familiar quote can't be more real to me. Everything in life is here to teach us something about ourselves. Our experiences, if we allow it, will bring us closer to our true nature. It took me a while to muster the courage to face the edges of my intense emotions. The triggers that set me off became the source of the lessons that life has to offer. The light shone on the darkness so the shadows can meet my gaze. When my eyes opened to see the agony that lies around the edges of my soul, I wasn't sure what to do. It can be a frightening experience, where feelings can easily take over. But when I allowed myself to breathe through it and consider the impermanence of life, I realized that these feelings are just as impermanent as everything else. They appear like waves in the ocean, coming and going. They are like the clouds in the sky that occasionally cover the sun. Healing is right the edge of our painful emotion. When we choose the courage to find comfort in the unease, we eventually expand and develop the resilience that can take us through the most difficult moments in life.
I am a lover of life, beauty, and vitality. I believe that we are creators of our own reality. It is important that our thoughts, feelings, speech, and actions reflect our true, essential nature. Through stillness, we can find our true selves. My desire is to share the journey into myself in the hopes of creating a space that connects with others who find themselves on the same path. I hope that you will find inspiration in this place.
