A Step to Having Our Emotions Lead Us Back

Standard

Emotions can be quite powerful. We even say that powerful emotions, like rage, grief, or shame, overwhelm us, completely filling us. Our experience of our emotions is that it gets into every fiber, every nook and cranny, of our being until it feels like that emotion is all that we have become.

Yet, our emotions do not fill EVERY part of us. There is space around our emotions that is not touched and taken over by the emotions. This infinite, eternal part is ever at Peace, ever still, waiting for us to return to it. It is what allows us to hold the emotion in the first place, to give it meaning and to return us to the truth of who we are.

Next time the next emotion arises, be with it. Then ask yourself, “What else is there?” The answer is what will lead us back to ourselves.
