Reflection, embracing what is "But by accepting and learning to embrace the inevitable sorrows of life, we realize that we can experience a more enduring sense of happiness". Sharon Salzberg, Real Love.
A practice I've been trying lately, allowing myself to feel "negative" emotions. Normally when I am sad or angry I try and distract myself so I don't need to feel those emotions. When I began this practice of allowing myself to recognize and feel all my emotions it started out feeling a little overwhelming and I questioned wether this was the right path. Plus, I was crying a lot on my commute to work, this is where I do a lot of these practices through podcast and reading books on the subway 🤷♀️. I am beginning to notice the beauty in the sadness, yes I cry and lately because I'm still grieving my uncles passing. I cry and then I feel a sense of gratitude and appreciation that I have this amazing love and light from a beautiful being I had the gift of time with. Sharon Salzberg also describes the way through mindfulness that these emotions don't need to absorb us we can simply acknowledge that they are there and realize that they will pass. @sharonsalzberg
