LEAVING RESISTANCE

Resistance definition according to the Oxford online dictionary: "The refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument." Consider resistance as it relates to an emotional conversation. Consider resistance as it relates to feeling your own emotions. You are here in this magical life and you may not travel the world or fly into space. Yet you are blessed to journey through every emotion. Each emotion holds an essence and a lesson that offers you the possibility of being a better person. Each emotion is a link to honoring of your truer self. To tell yourself or another you are not sad when you are shuts a door, it hurts. To tell another or yourself you are not angry pulls a curtain on your needs or thoughts and tells another they are not worthy of truth or trust. To tell another everything is perfect when you are lost keeps you in loneliness. To listen to another share their worry is the greatest honor there is. A flight to the moon in its wonder. When sharing those emotions that you feel may be unpleasant, if you share them softly and from the heart you are offering the raw you, the vulnerable you, the bravest and most gloriously growing you.


Each emotion holds the trueness of life, so another human can learn to connect to you through empathy. Each emotion holds healing, as it leaves it turns into a space for insight to enter. Emotions are not a glue, they do not stick to you. Unless you try to close them in. And yet, maybe emotions do hold glue when we share them with each other, we become united… Emotions are like music. Rock, symphony and the softest flute and cymbal. Music is so close to emotion that a song can echo through your soul and find an emotion to match the melody. Being able to say “I feel” is one of your greatest gifts. Coming back to the purity is one of the finest pieces of music in existance. It honors your rightness as well as others. It comes from a place deeper than correctness according to life or religion or education. It moves life towards the wisdom of your soul.
