We often restrict ourselves to feel deeply, out of the desire to protect ourselves. But in turn we may be missing out to experience our ability to celebrate the incredibly wide range of emotions we humans are capable of.
Awareness of our feelings, as I see it, is a prerequisite to the awareness of being alive, fully, embracing the highs and lows, the depths and the shallows. Not easy at times, but so worth it, since once we come out of the shadow we will be elevated by the magnificent brilliance of the light.
I trust in the knowing that there is no shadow without its counterpart, the light. May we help each other to navigate between the shadow and the light, it appears to me to be the ultimate adventure.
Yet it can all be over in a blink of an eye, hence it is too precious to miss.
