"Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional."~ Zen Proverb
Many times we try to avoid pain. We close off from anything we think may bring it, so we never have to feel. We use our mind to attempt to find an answer for our heart, when our heart is the answer. It will show us anything we need to feel, to go to where we are. We think out of fear, and try to plan accordingly... however, often times fear disables action, so we get stuck suffering, unable to move through the pain.
If love is a verb... fear must be a noun. Love is action, change... flow of energy. Fear is lifeless, suffocating... defined. Love inspires risk, growth, truth. Fear prohibits these things. When pain comes, it is easy to stop and think, to choose fear... but in time we can see that there are growing pains involved to blossom. In fear we remain trapped in our seed... in love we can embrace the pain, and keep pushing beyond it, allowing ourselves to emerge and evolve beautifully and blissfully.
There's no need to think of an answer... trust your heart... love in pain... go with it and grow with it. (and trust me, it will go!)
Today's Silver Lining:
So, let go, let go, Just get in, Oh, it's so amazing here, It's all right, 'cause there's beauty in the breakdown, It gains the more it gives, And then it rises with the fall, So hand me that remote, Can't you see that all that stuff's a sideshow? Such boundless pleasure, We've no time for later, Now you can't await, your own arrival, you've twenty seconds to comply." Let Go- by Frou Frou
