Tears of Sadness or Joy

Shedding tears. You all do it. It is an emotional release of sadness or perhaps even anger. It is a mechanism of cleansing, of moving the emotions up and out. To once again bring you peace and inner calm. For it is when you feel that inner calm that you have the most clarity in your life.

The human vessel, though fragile, has many wonderful designs within it to help you along your way. And tears are one of those designs. The perception of this world is that shedding tears is a sign of weakness. When in fact, tears are strengthening and empowering. Imagine those tears carrying the emotion from within, little drops of intense emotion moving out. Making room for the love and inner calm that will soon replace that emotion. And often, after you cry, you sleep. Allowing the body to transition from a state of intensity to one of acceptance, love and calming energy.

Remember, it is in those resting moments when you are best able to make and feel the connection. With the loving kindness that surrounds you, envelops and heals you. It is during these moments of rest when your human mind steps aside. And your heart can once again spiral up to strengthen the connection with the All.

The tears evaporate. The emotion is dispersed into the ethers. And once again you have cleared the space for loving energy to replace what has been dispersed. Call to it, invite it in and accept the love. Allow it to fill your earthly vessel to the brim with light. Tingling with pure love.

Do not judge the ways of being. Instead, allow life to flow. Follow the current and do not fight it by trying to swim upstream. Allow yourself to ride the waves as they take you to your next moment in life. Trust not your head, but your inner compass. Close your eyes and navigate with that compass, without judgment, without preconceived notions. For indeed, you are able to fly higher, sing sweeter, and love more deeply than you think.

The mind limits you. The heart expands your horizons and is your rudder as you follow the current of life.

Discard the map and trust the inner voice. For the journey has many paths, all leading to the same end. It is your choice which route you take. But know this. You will arrive at the same destination. Back to the Source, the loving Oneness. Who will be awaiting you with open arms, with tears of joy to have you back once again. Tears of joy.

You are Light.

You are Love.

You are One.

And ALWAYS have been.

    I always feel better after a good cry. But, it’s certainly dangerous to allow it to go on for too long. Twice I have had long blocks of time defined primarily by my tears. One time it lasted well over a year, such that my face showed it, even when it was at rest. Cry your tears, and then do your best to let it go as soon as you can.

    Thank you for your wise counsel on the value of tears — I used to hate crying, until I learned this lesson, that tears lubricate the doors of the heart, that they may open more quietly and easily.
