"Shift towards the liberation, the beauty of the moment, the willingness to embrace the impact, the hurt. Something powerful goes on when we direct ourselves toward accepting and cooperating with whatever is in our presence. We move closer to God's presence in all things."- John Morton
We tend to shy away from pain, from feeling shame or embarrassment or doubt or fear. We tend to want to distract from those darker feelings.
To "embrace the impact" of those things can bring about a deeper clarity and understanding and ultimately healing, forgiveness and freedom.
As Hafiz said, "Wherever you are is the entry point." May you accept the present, embrace it, and move from that place as if you had fully chosen it.
Much Love and Light to you all,
